Bushwack around blowdown debis making sharp left at triple "L" blue blaze. Once around though, we couldn't find where path continued up to RD. DH wound up making very hairy bushwack/climb up, over and balancing on top of huge pile of blows & branches to reach RD connection (up to the right in pic). The pic doesn't do his effort or the situation justice. There were still more limbs and trunks to manage after it was taken before he finally reached the top.
Only once up top could he see remnants of Lichen Trail connection below. The pic below was taken from RD looking down at 'trail' after I followed it up. You can see two right-turn blue Long Path blazes below. But to make that right turn requires you to go left and around blows in background - if you're heading back to Times Square that is.
In order to continue on from Lichen up to RD connection, however, after making that sharp left at blue triple "L" & around aforementioned blows, go about 20 ft., then make sharp right,. You'll still have to climb up, over and through blow debris as I did. But it won't be quite as bad if you miss it and continue on straight ahead leaving you to bushwack off trail as DH did.
This hiking mini-holiday was our first exposure to Harriman since Sandy. Unbelievable. If ever one needed proof and reaffirmation that nothing in nature is permanent... this is it. Enjoy it while you can, and those dedicated crews clearing the trails are enabling all of us to continue doing just that.
