Route: Beech Trail (NY)

Location
New York, US
Description

Beech Trail is a 3.7 mi hiking trail in Harriman State Park, New York. The trail is accessible by the Red Cross Trail to the north and the Long Path to the south. The trail is comprised of single track hiking trail and some two track old mine road; also passes through a Civil War era cemetery.

Notably, the ends of Beech Trail are only accessible from trails, not roads.  The FKT is for the full Beech Trail only, so anyone wishing to attempt an FKT on it will be able to warm up by jogging from a trailhead to one end of the trail or the other.

Ben Newell created a Strava segment for the Beech Trail.
