HIKE DISTANCE:  4.3 miles
Hiked together with Mount Ivy County Park - 2.4 miles

The Long Path runs through South Mountain County Park and starts at the parking lot entrance but we went to check out the amphitheater first which is beyond the gate.
Looks like this must be it.
Back to the parking lot entrance to get on the Long Path.
Now we are on top of the amphitheater.
Sun rising over the mountains.
A few little glimpses of views to the right before ...
...views of New York City.
At the tower you can take a service road or the Long Path.
We took the service road and looped back on the Long Path.
The service road ends at Route 33, turn left before the gate to get back on the Long Path.
This is the more rugged section of the Long Path through South Mountain County Park.
Retracing back.
I was picking up litter on the way back and went to pick this up but the cup was ice cold so I left it.  I shouldn't have.  There was nobody else in the parking lot when I got back.  Lazy #&*$^*# people :(
Back at the parking lot.
The rest of the litter I picked up.
On to Mt. Ivy County Park, a 1.5 mile drive away.
