This trail was beautiful around sunset. Definitely a fun shorter trail that's a little rocky but very do-able for the amateur hiker. Worth checking out!

A lovely hike, not too long and with lots of options. We will def be back to try different trails. Extremely dog friendly, too. We took the blue to the red & really enjoyed the Hudson lookout. It took us 1.5 hours

This was a really nice hike. Started on White trail,in lower parking lot, to Red trail and then short distance on Blue trail back to the Red to White. White trail is a nice ascent up while the others were mostly flat.

can catch a view of the ribbon of Hudson river at one point. mostly up and down through woods and some nice pond views as well. You're in the woods but not too far off the beaten track.

We loved how the trails interlocked each other. This allowed us to walk as much or little of the trails we wanted. Beautiful views off the red trail.

Undulating terrain and winding trails kept my interest. Did only the red and white paths. View of Hudson River and maybe CT and MA? Loose rocks and rock outcrops may be a hazard for youngsters. Will return to do other paths.

This was really an enjoyable hike for a various group of people. We had beginners to advanced and we had a great time. If you looking for a quick hike, this is a nice one

It's a great beginner hike. Very dog friendly. Did have to check for ticks after the hike. The overlook and waterfall were worth the hike.

This is a "must do" if you are in the vicinity! Very easy and accessible 4 mile loop. Do all or some. Bike hike or walk your dog. Can be windy. Open dawn to dusk. Links with many other local trails. Rewarding signage of historical educational value. World class spectacular views for photo-bugs. I'll be back!

I traversed the trail from Rosendale to Gardiner. Very easy direct path with many opportunities to enjoy the surroundings. Rosendale bridge will be a great addition when done. NP is good place to stop for food/beverage ; so trail enhancement (construction ) at the Gardiner end. Many nice hikers and bikers along the way. No shelters, very few benches.

Great hike for young and old. Easy access from top or bottom. Most excellent view of river, bridge, and Poughkeepsie skyline. Rather secluded so bring a friend. Great addition to Walkway on the Hudson.
