The first part of the hike was moderate, became very difficult as you approached the top. Definitely better off doing it in the cooler months. Awesome hike! Next time I will be better prepared now knowing what it's like.

definitely a challenging but doable hike. The easiest way down is keep going up. eventually believe it or not it levels off. Take your time, enjoy the climb and the views. Really great hike, not too good for small dogs though

Best views of the Hudson and super exciting climb. Make sure you have plenty of water and are prepared for a steep scramble

Great, quick ascent. Get there early before the 8:09 metro north pulls in!

This was the second time I went hiking and I really enjoyed it. Fun rock scrambles and some beautiful views. We took breakneck (white) to the bypass (red) and to wilikson (yellow) and made a nice loop. I'd love to do it again either earlier on a weekend or a weekday to rally enjoy it. We went early on a weekend (roughly 8:30) and there was a dozen or so around us but we were able to wait or speed up to avoid hiking single file. Nothing compared to the crowd when we were leaving. Literally a line to go on the trail.
