- 6.85 miles
NY 293 is a diagonal route providing access to West Point from the southwest. It splits off from the Long Mountain Parkway (US 6) in Harriman State Park and runs northeast for several miles to the point where the Storm King Highway (NY 218) splits off from US 9W, where it ends. The entire length is a two-lane undivided road.
US 6 follows the northernmost section of the Palisades Parkway approaching the Bear Mountain Bridge. As is the case with most parkways, trucks are prohibited. Therefore, US 6 has a truck route along the entire length of NY 293 and then along US 9W south to the bridge.
