South Mountain-Gurnee

South Mountain & Gurnee County Parks (7/12/2015)

We did this lollipop six years ago. Back then we parked at the western end at the large parking area off CR45 in Mount Ivy, New York. This time we parked on CR33 (Central Highway). To the east is High Tor State Park. To the west is South Mountain Park, which is where we headed. The Long Path is used for most of this hike and is very rugged for much of the first 45 minutes or so. When we reached CR45 we headed back but took the woods road past the antenna.

Total distance covered was about 4.2 miles in just under 3 hours.
