“Discovering the Long Path” is a photo exhibit that displays the beauty of the 347-mile Long Path, “New York’s Greatest Trail”. Photographer Steve Aaron captured images from various sections of the Long Path by taking day hikes along the trail. He shot images from the George Washington Bridge to John Boyd Thacher State Park near Albany. Steve photographed the Palisades, Harriman State Park, the Schunemunk Mountains, the Basha Kill, the Shawangunks, Catskills and the northern reaches of the trail near Mine Kill State Park and Vroman’s Nose. Steve’s images capture the diversity of the trail from its highest point at Slide Mountain to the lowest point along the Hudson River at Piermont. Many of Steve’s pictures feature the Shawangunks in and near Sam’s Point Preserve. Stop in the Sam’s Point Visitor Center to enjoy these beautiful photos! Pre-registration is NOT required.
