It's not a difficult trail but make sure to wear comfortable and ankle supportive shoes.

Great trail for kids. Well groomed and marked. Falls were beautiful.

Great waterfall at the end. There is also a campsite at the falls, if you wanted to hike in and spend an evening. Most of the trail is creek bed, with about 1-2 inches of water present after a rain in most portions. If there is heavy rain, be prepared to climb over a few logs.

Moderate trail even after a heavy rain. Payoff is the beautiful series of waterfalls.

Awesome trails. Just avoid the carriageway (boring to hike) – you can catch trails all the way instead.

Also note that the trail to the falls may be cut off after plentiful rain, but it's still worth it just for the Mossy Glen section (immediate left off carriageway at parking lot).

Gorgeous moderate hike. If you are looking for views this is a great pick. The trail is moderate and offers nice portions that are great for trail running. There are also many nice little overlooks so you can find your own spot to relax and take in the views.

Only did part of the loop. Ended around where the beaver pond is, but I think this is such a fun hike!! I like the little natural water spigot. And the quarry itself makes for fun rock throne photos.

Always a beautiful trail. A few lookout points and pretty walks.

It's a lovely trail, a rather steep climb, may need to use your hands to climb up some of the trail. It's located near a campsite, which will give you a moderate to high trafficked area, depending on time of day. Definitely worth my time, the views were beautiful. It took roughly 5 hours, with some breaks at the look out points. The hike can be longer than 5 hrs if you choose to go further through the trail. I'll post the pictures that I have.

Very impressed by the overlook and not to hard to access for beginners and intermediate hikers!

Excellent hike. Trailhead was not difficult to find based on the AllTrails directions. It took us right to the parking lot which had signs towards the trail across the street. The path was wide for the most part and very easy to follow. There was one confusing part about 1mi into the hike which was a fork in the path. There were two wide paths so we did not know which one to follow, but we stuck to the right and it took us the correct way. At the end we took a swim in the water which was cold but felt amazing as it was a hot summer day. The hike back was a breeze, mostly downhill. The hike to get to the falls was not very challenging and perfect for a quick and easy thing. Mostly shaded. Took us 40min, and the way back was maybe 20min. Would do it again! Very fun.

Beautiful view from the ledge panther mountain has one good view. Hiked through to fox hollow steep and long 10.5 miles.

Easy hike. Nice Forrest views with a small set of falls at the top. Great place to cool down. Quick little hike

I Loved this Hike, I took four kids and we did both Giant ledge and Panther Mt, we went early in the morning so that it would not be as crowded, and the later in the day it got the more people we saw. veiws were Spectacular, I am recommending this hike to everyone I know, absolutely breathtaking!!!!

Beautiful views went from Giant ledge to fox hollow very difficult decline out 10.5 miles

Easy hike , falls were visually appealing.

July 1 2018 - 97 and humid in area.

A nice trail, though very buggy. I did not get any ticks but another in my group got 2. Trail is mostly shaded, good for a hot day. Did not find any waterfalls.

Be sure to really know the route in your head and look at the map on alltrails in detail. Even though the title is "Blue Loop", you actually only take the blue trail for ~1.2 miles, then to loop back you get onto the red trail.

We followed the blue trail for ~3.3 miles before we got nervous that we had done something wrong. Luckily we turned back because the blue trail would have taken us farther and farther away from the trailhead, and the sun was setting.

There is a small yellow "trail" which goes down to the neversink river which is nice if you have a few extra minutes towards the start of the hike.

I’m so glad I found this trail! It offers the views on every turn. From open vistas on the ridge to interesting rock formations and interesting and non monotonous forest.
I started counter clock wise and both myself and two other families took a wrong turn off the trail on the first half mile of trailhead. Maybe there should be an additional trail marker. But if you pay more attention that we did today, you won’t get lost.
I saw some people with dogs but not sure how dogs manage climbing the boulders part. The elevation gain is very gentle and climbing parts make the trail interesting. Red trail portion is a little wet and offers some magical deep forest feel.
Saw a wild turkey and a deer.

Cleanest hike with amazing view at top

Nice hike and beautiful waterfalls.

Watch out for rattlesnakes! One was hiding under a rock I stepped near and warned me I was too close.
Good hike, but the falls were a little lacking with water. Maybe next time will be better.

Only went to giant ledge but didn’t realize it was a bunch of ledges. Amazing views and relatively easy hike to ledges. Would definitely recommend to all my friends.

Just hit the Ledge, not Panther. Pretty steep hike but some very nice views (at least 2 major ledges to peer off) for a relative short amount of work. Camping at the top. The descent is loads of fun, running and jumping down on all the rocks--be careful though.

I thru hiked this area and the out looks are soul touching ..for a day trip for someone ,I'd say it's a must ..happy trails

Love this hike. It’s pretty short and not very difficult. Like others have stated, some of the rock scrambles are a little tough for the pups, for ours anyway. Overall I would rate this Trail as easy. Beautiful views at sunset rock!

Wonderful views at Giants ledge. Decided not to continue to Panther due to rain coming in. One of the best views the Catskills have to offer.
