It's a very rewarding experience with many scenic views along the way. Don't let the "difficult" rating scare you. It's actually wasn't that hard, but you do need to be extra careful not to slip.

Did a winter hike up to the lake and back. A steady climb to the lake. Until you get about 3/4 to the lake, uninteresting wide access road. Then it turns into a trail with rock walls, a stream and mountain laurel
Might be ok for a mt bike ride to the lake.. in the summer. Otherwise, I won't take that route again.

nice scenery, good hike around lake with many other good hiking trails too. $10 to get into park was a lil too much; $5 would be a good compromise

Such a fun hike. September was perfect time; still sunny but not so hot. There's plenty of shade, but no water to cool off (so I imagine this would be a hot hike in the middle of the summer). Lake is beautiful. Took a couple of hours to complete.. When starting at the tip/bottom of the lake looking south, I recommend doing this trail clockwise. Less traffic and we hiked alone for most of the time.

I only had enough time to do part of the trail but it was beautiful and I will be completing it soon. The terrain varied from carriage roads to descents & ascents.

Great trail! Great views! It was so beautiful I couldn't stop taking pictures. Like another review said there are a lot of "noses" so it's a bit confusing but we didn't care. The day was so perfect and the weather was hot but great. When we finished there were a few people swimming in the beautiful clear cool water but we didn't bring bathing suits. Next time for sure!

Great views from the cliffs but the rest is mostly trees. I went in the fall so I think this helped. Pretty colors everywhere but it gets cold at the top. Especially if it's windy.

Loved loved loved this trail! We hiked the carriage road up and the millbrook mountain trail down. Overall it took us 6 hours to hike with our 4 month old puppy, but that's because we took our time and enjoyed the view. The trail was relatively low traffic and we had the nose basically to ourselves for almost an hour. The trail wasn't that difficult sans for a few rock scrambles. You also basically hike down the center of a creek on the millbrook mountain trail so it's a tad wet and slippery there. The views were stunning and the rock formations just downright interesting. Highly recommend!

This trail is a nice stroll with a few uphill parts. There are several spots to see beautiful views of the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
