I would definitely rate this as a more moderate hike vs difficult. Much easier than other Catskills hikes I’ve been on and the views are stunning from every peak. Don’t let the distance or elevation scare you away from this one. Very mellow 2.5 miles or so the the summit of Slide, steep on the backside of the summit heading to Cornell. Slight elevation gain over pretty easy terrain for the rest of the way. A couple of “scrambles” but other than that, it’s smooth sailing from start to finish. Completed on 11/9/19 and the entire length of the trail was snow covered to some degree with Slide having the most. Micro spikes are recommended but not necessary.

This was fun. According to the trail markers, this is 12 miles, though. I started around 10:30 am and finished just after 5 pm for about 6.5 hours total hiking time. I took only a 15 minute lunch break at Wittenberg, but otherwise was always moving. The scrambling was certainly challenging and I really appreciated the help from the kind souls on the trail when I threw my poles down or I handed my backpack up so that I could climb up without that extra weight. The best views are at Wittenberg, at the spring right before the stairs along Cornell and before Slide at the rocky outpost. Glad to experience the tail end of the foliage in the Catskills. I wouldn’t recommend this in the winter because some of the scrambling gets a bit tricky and there was already some black ice today on some of the boulders (10/19/19). It was interesting when the ice rained down on me from the treetops and I enjoyed finding icicles on the boulders. Beautiful fall day all around.

Definitely not for the faint of heart. My squad hiked with full gear through this with a dog may I add. There were times we were basically full on repelling the dog down steep cliffs. The harder inclinations were about 12 feet basically straight down with some foot leverage. We were going to head back to the cars but we ended up hitching a ride because our team was just that beat up. Take your time on these trails, pack light, and make sure to bring water filters because you will need to stay as hydrated as you can. Overall I thought It was a great adventure. Glad I made it back alive.
