Phenomenal hike. Epic scenery. By far the best hike I've been on all my life. Definitely go here if you have the chance. The rock formation is out of this world and the elevation you achieve allows you see see so much of the surrounding land. The park in the beginning is gorgeous as well.
nice hike, mostly going through the mountain. it's surrounded by trees about 97% of the way, so it's probably beautiful during the fall. otherwise not much to see. there's only 2 or 3 overlooks. it's all carriage roads if you take it from the minnewaska lake trail head. it's relatively easy, even for someone as out of shape as I am.
Rachel and I really liked this hike. The cliffs are amazing and scary (for me). A good part of the hike is on the carriage road so it hikes shorter than it is. Follow yellow markers to Millbrook Mountain (MC) around the right side of the lake. On the way you'll see the trail on your right to Gertrude's Nose. - red markers. Rachel got closer to the edges than I did! $10.00 to park.
