Awesome views along the way. Sadly no view at the top. Great summer hike because you can jump in the blue hole after.

Loved this trail in winter- great mountain and valley views as you climb and panorama of Hudson River valley and lots of surrounding area from the fire tower at the top. In summer I find this trail's scenery not worth the effort- but without all the greenery on the trees it is really incredible in winter! Quite busy- lots of hikers on this January wknd!

Awesome hike, a little difficult throughout, but the top is very rewarding. I would certainly go again.

I've done this hike a ridiculous amount of times and I can not say enough good things! love it. just be prepared to climb once it starts it starts haha.

Somewhat boring as far as 'hiking' trails go, but a good walk up. If you go at a good pace, you can get the heart going. There is an awesome view at the fire tower up top though.

Of all the 4000 foot mountains I've hiked this was definitely the easiest . We went in mid January on a very sunny day the temperature was in the low thirties. the trail is quite icey but never gets too steep, we reached the top in about two hours . Although the view is somewhat limited and the summit is heavily wooded a small cliff about a quarter mile from the top revealed some incredible views of the rest of the Catskills . This is a must for any skill level
