The Long Path is a 347.4-mile (559.1 km) long-distance hiking trail beginning at the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, New Jersey and ending at Altamont, New York, in the Albany area.
While not yet a continuous trail, relying on road walks in some areas, it nevertheless takes in many of the popular hiking attractions west of the Hudson River, such as the New Jersey Palisades, Harriman State Park, the Shawangunk Ridge and the Catskill Mountains. …
Plans call for it to be extended through the Adirondacks to the Canadian border.

The tree locked trails of the eastern USA simply don’t engage a guy from the Rockies. It’s mostly a green tunnel out here.
I left a Summit Stone with this caterpillar, … and turned back.
No Long Path for me.
Here’s a glimpse of the kind of terrain we’re talking about.
