Entrance to the Lemon Squeezer

The Lemon Squeezer is an unusual rock formation in Harriman State Park, New York. It is located at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail (White) and the Arden-Surebridge Trail (Red Triangle), near the base of Island Pond Mountain in the town of Tuxedo.

At first, the trail passes under a giant boulder resting precariously on top of other rocks. After passing this point the true nature of the Lemon Squeezer becomes apparent as the hiker suddenly gets "squeezed" through a path that is three feet high, one foot wide, and angled 15 degrees.[1] Beyond are still more interesting rock formations where pine trees grow on top of a thin rock ceiling above the path.
