Harriman is filled with old Depresion-era dirt roads, farm roads, fire roads, abandoned trails, and little known pathways. Together these make up Harriman's unmarked tails. Many are broad and obvious while others seem to disappear into nothing. Completion of this homework assignment means the recipient has traveled to some of Harriman's most remote location and honed his or her trail-finding skills on some of the park's most difficult-to-follow trails. There are countless tiny pathways that are nearly impossible to catalog, and hiking them therefore, is not required for the completion of this assignment. Required trails include any named unmarked trail or woods road and any unnamed, unmarked trail more than one mile in length.
