There is not enough shade on this trail
It's great for strollers or cycling with young kids with proper sun protection but I will not recommend it for dogs

road biking

I ride my bike with my dog on a tow bar that's fastened to the back tire of my biracial bike. he is a one-and-a-half-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer, thay need plenty of exercise, the roads were narrow but manageable the turns come up quick so you have to be careful you made one turn and somebody could be there, we enjoyed it Bingo had a good time, we will go back in fall to see the Fall colors.

hiking

Beautiful scenery, great history and information, and a nice easy enjoyable hike. It's a good way to do 5 to 10 miles depending on which trails you take and how many you do in a day, but it's not a very difficult hike if that's what you're looking for.

Absolutely gorgeous falls. They are second in height only to the niagra falls, as far as waterfalls east of the Mississippi. Very easy trail. Easy for kids and dogs.

on Shore Trail

The initial part of the trail was difficult for anyone not used to walking as it has a steep incline. Great views of the Hudson River and some neat waterfalls. Also some nice historical facts posted at the beginning of the trail.

Definitely not for dogs. The trail is quite rocky and would hard for dogs to navigate with their paws. Beautiful scenes, quite a workout. Don't think young kids would care for the uphill climb at parts. Could not take a stroller of you wanted to.

hiking

Torn on this one. Construction at the lot caused us to have a time finding the trail. Once on the trail, it was fairly easy to follow. It was a challenging loop, but the trail was routed very strangely. At one point the blazes go up and over a rock formation that is in the middle of green woods. Why not just go around it? Of course another side trail was formed by people doing just that. In another area the trail parallels a double wide gravel road/atv trail about 30 feet in the woods and over a serious talus field. Again, why would they double the impact and create a trail when they could have adjoined with atv trail? The whole time I was thinking "why aren't we just walking on that." Some decent views of the lake. Make sure to have a map and don't miss your turnoffs.

Nice hike with interesting features. The old ruined house is cool, views of the lake, and a decent overlook. Trails are well marked, classic jersey rocky and rooty.

on Turkey Mountain Loop

hiking

Not a bad day. Mostly walking on double wide gravel through the woods but was able to take in a wildlife blind, the ruin of an old stone house, and a partially obscured view of the lake. A decent hike, pretty easy cruising, combined this with the pyramid mountain loop on the other side of the road for a longer day.

Nice day out. Some interesting features but mostly just a forest walk. Some glacial erratics, and some old house ruins. Combined this with Turkey Mountain on the other side of the road for a long day. A decent hike but nothing special.
