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.
Excellent hike but not difficult wonderful views
Very well marking the way :)
hiked about a mile of this trail from Millbrook Mtn back up to Lake Minnewaska - part of the Gertrude's Nose Loop - surprisingly steep back up to the lake.
nice hike, mostly going through the mountain. it's surrounded by trees about 97% of the way, so it's probably beautiful during the fall. otherwise not much to see. there's only 2 or 3 overlooks. it's all carriage roads if you take it from the minnewaska lake trail head. it's relatively easy, even for someone as out of shape as I am.
This was a an amazing hike. All different terrain made it seem to go by quick. Steep ascents to rolling ups and downs. Loved the views from several different points along the way.
I took the Minnewaska Loop to a leg of this trail and the only thing preventing me from giving it five stars was the unbearable heat! There is some moderate to strenuous climbing but the terrain was incredible and lots of fresh blueberries to pick! Great views the whole way (trekked about 2 miles of the trail before turning back). Excellent views of the Hudson Valley and the Catskills in the distance. The light was hitting everything in the most picturesque way. We didn't see anyone else along the trail so I imagine it's not that heavily trafficked! If you are looking for a healthy hike, look below at my recorded path. This combined with the Minnewaska Loop was a perfect hike with great variety of views and a good swim to cool off at Lake Minnewaska!
