So it looks like I'm heading to Harriman on Saturday. I am considering trying mass transit. Long island rail road to Penn station..and then?? I can take a train to secaucus terminal and transfer to another train to tuxedo...or...I can take a bus from Port Authority directly to tuxedo. Has anyone tried either of these options on a weekend? Best bets? Time of travel?  Any pointers? Thanks.

I always just drove, although I love the idea of the train thing.  Def. don't have to worry where you parked your car while you hiked...... hahaaa

My fiance and I are going Tuesday-Wednesday by train from Queens. It ain't that bad. A third the time, sure, but still not that bad.

My fiance and I are going to Tuxedo Park tomorrow, hit the trail, spend the night, come home. We'll take the 'E' to Penn Station, the Hoboken NJT train to Secaucus Junction, transfer to the Port Jervis line to Tuxedo. 2.5 hours. It takes 45 minutes to drive. Man...

Gotcha thanks. That's the way I would take if I took mass transit. I was curious how the bus from Port Authority was. Have fun.
