wonderful winter hiking with sparsely populated trails

did not make it to north point, foot tracks stopped after lookout rock going up to newman’s ledge and we did not have snow shoes, so around we turned. gorgeous views at artists rock and overlook, tho, and some fun hiking in spite.

HikingGreat!IcyScrambleSnow

As of 1/31/21 the trail head parking is still blocked and must walk the 1.5 miles to the trail head. I would 100% recommend bringing snow shoes. My very reliably waterproof hiking shoes were soaked by the end. I would also rate this on the harder side of moderate. With that said it was such a good hike with so many breathtaking viewpoints, small rock scrambles, and classic Catskill forest . Definitely one of my favorite hikes to date

Amazing! Was about 8-10 inches of snow but as long as you dress warm, this hike wasn’t bad at all. I managed with spikes and no poles. The 1.5 mile hike to the main trail was super simple and the snow on all the paths were packed down due to previous hikers which made the hike easier. Will be returning in the spring!

This was an absolutely fantastic hike. The 1.5 mile walk-in from the parking lot is benign so don’t let that deter you. The multiple streams and waterfalls are only rivalled by the overlooks which give you nice views. Recommend waterproof hiking boots, sneakers will get wet! 

We had to walk a while to the trail head. There’s a road closed.

We did a small portion of the trail... to Artist’s Rock. Amazing views and not as crowded as we expected given the beautiful weather. However a rock scramble before Artists Rock was very challenging for our elderly dog and was in no way passable on a bike. This is a hiking trail... a lovely one... but not a biking trail. Thus the 3 star rating.

HikingGreat!

Did this back in the fall - immediately jumped to my favorite hike in the broader NYC area. Right up front you're handed a stunning 2,000 foot drop over into the Hudson Valley. From there, it's a terrific, moderate loop with the final North Point peak a must. Just be mindful the way down follows a stream so you might get your feet wet if there's been recent weather. Also, since there's no cell service -- the hike begins on the side of the lot you entered from, not the far side. Enjoy!

Easy trail to follow, and outstanding views at the top! Definitely recommend.

Great trail up, a little wet coming down.

Decent views. Definitely worth visiting. A little too crowded for me though!
