I would not say this was an easy hike, but definitely worth it. Be sure to wear good hiking boots, lots of rocks, tree roots and slippery dirt.

The view from the very top is amazing and worth all the struggling. Although this is described as easy I found it to be more moderate as it is very steep and the stairs get kind of killer especially the further up you go. There are several spots to swim which is nice on a hot day. The only downfall was the crowds, but that should be expected for a place as magnificent as this!

Wonderful moderate hike, we brought both our dogs and they enjoyed it as well. If you have weak ankles you might want boots, it's rocky in places. The view from the top is gorgeous, especially now with all the fall colors.

Beautiful place

Beautiful hike! Enjoyed the fall foliage!

It was. Great trail. Definitely go to Inspiration point. Amazing views!

we went last weekend and it's actually pretty strenuous. really beautiful but can be pretty dangerous on the trail (slippery, uneven, rocky)

It's busy it's worth it. Beautiful place.

Moderate hike with only a few challenging portions with great views from the end. Great hike for a families.

Beautiful trail. There is very little water this time of the year, so instead of hiking on the trail, we went up directly on the river bed.

Hard only made it to Maeli's look out.

This is a heavily trafficked trail that has poor accessibility and can be dangerous. The parking area is fine but to reach the trail you must first walk down a busy mountain road with little clearance for pedestrians on the narrow shoulder. On the trail there are many loose rocks, exposed stumps, exposed roots, slippery surfaces, and a steep grade at times. I often see people on this trail that look completely exhausted.. The serenity of this hike is often lost because it can be very crowded. The Kaaterskill falls are beautiful but the area around them is dangerous and hikers should excercise caution in the area leading to and around the falls.

Gorgeous views, medium hike, 3 hour round trip, easy to follow trail for the most part, go up red and blue trail and right at yellow follow to huckleberry point
