Pleasant, well marked trail that takes you down to the Hudson River with some hilly terrain. Good hike if you want to spend some time by yourself (without fear of falling off a cliff), but you will come across several other hikers. I went with my 11 year old for whom the hike was neither too easy nor too difficult.

This is a nice trail for dogs and to get a quick trail run in and it's really easy to find! It's really good for beginners and to just have a nice walk/run in the morning before your day starts or to finish off your day.

Quiet on a Friday morning in mid-August. Very peaceful. My dog and I navigated the trails without any problems. I'm glad I wore my Keen closed-toe water shoes—no slipping or sliding up-or-down. There are many downed hemlocks due to a nasty blight—so sad.

Very easy hike if you have kids or dog, otherwise very boring. I brought a camera, but didn't bother to take any photo.
