Great hike that is much less crowded than nearby Bear Mountain with almost as good views on a nice long ridge. Isn't has challenging as Major Welch Trail going up Bear Mountain, but still lots of fun for a quick 2-3 hour hike.

Good all-around hike, with a little bit of everything: scenic views, water crossings, modest climbs, etc. We hiked it on Thanksgiving so as hoped, we had the trails to ourselves.

Beautiful views, river crossing, and well marked. Though I had to ask for directions from hikers passing by in the beginning. I followed the trail markers in this order for the 4 mile loop- white trail/1777 to blue trail, to yellow trail, back to 1777/white. I stopped a couple of times, lots of incline and rocks, and made it back to the car in about 3 hours. I parked on the roadside, the small lot only holds about 5 cars.
