Probably the most intense hike in the lower Hudson, so it's not the hike you begin with. View at top is spectacular, so after you've conquered Anthony's Nose this is the next hike to pick.

Awesome hike, though definitely pretty challenging in the beginning. Be sure to bring a hiking partner!

Very nice hike with mini rock climbing. I did the 5 mile loop and stopped at each of the 4 view points along the way. I would do this hike again.
