The Shawangunk Ridge Trail (SRT), which begins in High Point, NJ, connects to the Long Path trail system and is an approximate 35 mile connector (or alternative) trail, which allows hikers to pass through the Huckleberry Ridge State Forest in Orange County, NY and the Basha Kill Wildlife Management Area, in Sullivan County, NY. The SRT connects with the Long Path shortly after crossing through the village of Wurtsboro. The NY/NJ Trail Conference currently maintains the Long Path and the Shawangunk Ridge Trail (SRT).
