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.
The views are amazing!
Amazing views, easy hike great in all seasons!
beautiful waterfall you can stand behind
a lovely place
very easy, very mellow, minimal grade - took it begin and end Gertrude's Nose Loop - nice views of Lake Minnewaska.
Easy... But a quaint, peaceful, uplifting hike... Always an enjoyable hike
Very mellow hike and great for all levels. Impeccably maintained trails (almost too done up for me as I like a little ruggedness!) and gorgeous views with multiple swim spots. My only big problem was the sheer popularity of the trail. I'm always seeking a little solitary time on the trail and wasn't fully prepared for how crowded it would be! I recommend going late or early in the day or spring/fall.
