This trail was amazing ! Awesome trail to start off the summer. We started on the white trail and it involved a lot and I meant a lot of climbing on rocks making it very difficult. Once on the top it is breathtaking and worth the drive and all the effort. Going down we went on the yellow trails which was pretty difficult as well and closer to the end we got to see some really cool ruins and creeks.

I love this hike. I have done it many times and every time I get to the top I appreciate the view tremendously!

The trail is dog friendly... My golden loves it but the trail is pretty busy now a days....

The panoramic view is super and on a clear day you can see past the Tappanzee Bridge maybe to NYC!

Great Hike... First mile is challenging but the views are worth it. Made it to the Fire Tower which used to be closed to the public but was able to access it and see past the Tappanzee Bridge and an AMAZING panoramic view.

My girlfriend used to do this trail weekly and hadn't been back in awhile so when she saw it she couldn't believe how busy it was....a very populated trail.

We will return!

I enjoy getting my butt kicked from time to time and this trail delivered, at least for the first mile or so. From there out its an average moderate hike. For fun try to scale the large Boulder on the trail. You'll know it when you see it.

Started at 9D and came back through blue and red. Never made it to fire tower but can't wait to go back!
