Very nice views from the top, a few short scrambles, quite a few spots where the trail is 1-2 ft from sheer drop so caution etc

definitely good for a view. alot of vertical climbing and rocks to make your way through. didn't find any landmarks. I like to hike to a location, and explore old historical places if the hike allows. Was proud to summit after the effort though!

A decent workout. A little bit of scrambling from time to time. The effort is well worth it, with some amazing panoramic views at the top of the mountain about three-quarters of a mile into the trail.

Love this hike. Good workout climb to a fantastic view. There's a few peaks with pretty overlooks. On a good rainy spring there's a beautiful waterfall. If doing the whole hike this trail leads to the Chauncey peak hike off country club road in Middletown. It's a great workout hike.

Cool trail! Lots of ups and downs! Watch out for loose rocks and bees but still awesome. Bring deep
Woods bug spray for sure

Really enjoyed this trail. Great climbs from the start which are also fun to end with. As I got away from the ledges and into the woods, I found it just as beautiful. Followed the trail to the "T" of you will. Going left on the "T" wasn't impressive but going to the right was fantastic. Wild blueberries and a pair of owls to have lunch with. :)
