My sister and I hiked this trails some years back, and it was just beautiful. Lots of stairs, but worth it.

when you all say "climb" do you mean that i should bring my rock climbing shoes and a crash pad or just that it is very steep?

We went snowshoeing on this trail and it was quite an experience! There was about 2 feet of virgin snow that we needed to break through by ourselves. Only do that if you are ready for a serious workout. The view was pretty decent on a day with good visibility.

My boyfriend and I are true beginners, not necessarily out of shape, but definitely not in it, either! We picked this trail for it's amazing views and the beginner label. Well, it was a little steeper and more difficult than anticipated, but it was well worth it. The views were so rewarding and after enjoying the views we couldn't wait to race back down to enjoy a nice dinner out!

The trail starts out with some awesome views of the Hudson river and ends with some challenging inclines. A really fun winter hike.

Very easy terrain. Can easily spend time in the creek in warmer weather. More of a free style walk with a main trail to follow along. A known high volume fishing spot all year long.

Great Walk along 18 Mile creek with views above the ridge. IT will meet up with the creek at a few spots along the way. We didn't make it to the end of the trail (only about 3.5 miles) Didn't see any waterfalls to that point. Trail is well traveled and easy to follow. Many people fishing near the parking area. Where we stopped at the creek we noticed some fish with no fisherman.
