Lots of loose rocks made the hike a little more difficult for my newbie family, but it was all worth it once we reached the spectacular views.

A great workout on the way up with great views up top. The way back down provides some recovery (aka cool down) time.

Amazing trail! Follow the red markers up. You will reach a point where you stop seeing red markers but just follow the trail up and you will reach the top and see amazing views. Some steep rocky parts but worth it to see the view.

Pretty steep and rocky ascent on the red trail. some unmarked trails can be confusing too. Two sweeping views in this trail (old train station and fire tower) are the most visited. it can be crowded during weekends. This trails offers a great 360 view of the Hudson from the south to the north, the bridges, the small town of beacon and really great green vegetation of mount beacon. Careful when climbing up the fire tower esp when it's too windy.

I am a beginner hiker and it was quite steep. Finished to the top in an hr following the red trail. Great view once I made it to the top. For me it was a one time only hike but very enjoyable despite the incline mountain.
