We did this hike early this morning after it had snowed the previous night , only a couple inches but it made this hike extremely difficult . We parked on the farm road and from there getting to the crag itself it's fairly easy and well marked, the rock scramble itself was very cool, incredibly tough in snowy/wet conditions but very doable on a nice dry day i would imagine. The veiw of the Catskills was incredible even on a moderately cloudy day. What I loved so much about this hike was you got veiws in every direction from the top. From there we took the yellow trail to the blue trail which eventually connected to the table rocks trail and then back to the parking lot with a little back tracking . Everything was very well marked

This is a great hike with varying terrain and great views. You can do the short version or add on miles. I added and went to Table Rocks but didn't have enough time to fully explore. Well worth going back.

I love this hike. Such a pretty view of the valley and just the right amount exertion to make you really appreciate it. It feels good!

Very easy trail. I ended up going on the weekend and it was ~$30/person to go hike! But it was worth it since I rarely go up to these parts. There are a couple trails in this area, so it's hard to tell where you are some times. But all trials either lead to the top where that tower is or the bottom, where the lake is. Basically the short cuts are difficult, and straight up the mountain, but you can take the easy long way. You could probably take a motorized wheelchair up those easy paths if it had some tread. I would only go here if you had family from out of town. There are bathrooms, and a hotel and benches, so everyone can participate. If it were just me on a regular weekend, I wouldn't spend that kind of money.

Very nice for a walk and amazing rock climbs!

The scramble was great delicious taste!
Front of that rock,you can feel exactly "really "

One of my all time favorites for a quick day hike. Fun rock scramble and some caving too.

Fun climb with some great views. Can't give a hike 5 stars that you have to pay for. Nature is free! Stop charging.

A great easy hike! We took about 3 hours doing the entire loop- took a lot of time on Undercliff taking pics. Our dogs also loved the hike (which is actually a flat walk.) We saw a couple families so kids can definitely handle the hike, although the entire 5 mile loop might be a bit long- we were pretty worn out by the end! It cost $12 per person to go in btw.

Fun day of snowshoeing!

Super fun and beautiful views!

Really nice trail!!

Very easy, leisurely stroll suitable for all levels. Amazing views in all directions, including the skytop cliff, (which, if you get a chance, definitely go check out!!), the Catskills and the Gunks, as well as hints at the ADKs in the background. Views of the old hotel are also stellar. Mohonk is truly a hiker/climber's paradise.
