We started from the Mt. Beacon park parking lot walked along the waterfall said and followed. It was amazing view, we really enjoyed it. But we got lost when we connected the blue to yellow. So we decided to get back to where we started but again. We ended up to the small parking lot.

It was amazing experience.

Quiet trail compared to many in the area. No facilities (use Anthony Wayne area). Keep an eye on markers as easy to get sidetracked. Just after the half way point this trail continues onto an unmarked stoney road while the blue and red/white trails curve to the right. Not easy underfoot (ankle support suggested) and could be slippery when wet. Nice viewpoints from both sides of west mountain. Cool historic area in last two miles. Took 3 hrs with about 1.5 mile extra for missing turnings.

It was a peaceful hike along this primarily flat terrain. Beautiful view of the mountains and fall foliage.

Really beautiful trail. A lot of flat parts and then sudden steep scrambles. Only a couple of lookouts

We hike it every year! Where else can you stand in two places at once :)

Always a nice hike, 3.8mi if you hike back on the road while the rest of the party hikes to the store for ice cream :)

It is a beautiful trail, especially in autumn, the leaves are beautiful, agreed with others, 90% of the trail are exposed to the far mountain views and valley. It felt like walking on a ridge. There are some steep climbs up and down. I would not recommend to take this route in the raining day.

This Hike was OK, got really crowded by the shelter and the road walking at the end isnt so great since people fly down the street. The lake was very nice especially with the fall colors. Not many views unless you add in the short spur to Black Mountain which I highly recommend you do, adds about 250ft of extra elevation gain to your total hike but you get to a very nice lookout point and also get to summit a MTN which also has amazing views of the Hudson on top. PS Trail is very rocky in some spots so make sure you have a good pair of boots.

Great hike! More like ‘hard’ than moderate

Dog friendly trail with a beautiful view. definitely worth it

Good hike and lots of fun rock scrambles but only call out is that a portion of the trail was under construction so you have to walk along a road for a bit. Also there are a couple roads mid-trail so if you have a dog, be careful they don’t run out onto a busy road. The trail got very crowded after 11am so if you want to avoid crowds, I recommend starting early.

Lots of stairs and people, up hill can be a loooooong journey. One way up and down. Great views and it was quite pretty, not for beginners—lots of great picnic spots! Beautiful vistas of the lower of the lower Hudson valley.

Very nice hike to amazing views! Good balance of moderately steep areas and long flat areas. Great for families also. Will do this one again!

I like the trail. Challenging with great views. Just head out early as it’s very popular and can get crowded

Really Beautiful. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because at night there isn't enough yellow reflective patch on the trees to navigate out towards the parking lot. It was a bit difficult, but with my offline map, the grace of God, instinct, cellphone lights and the help of our friend Charles, we were able to navigate back to the Parking lot after dark.

Such a fun experience. If you are novice, you will be able to do this trail. Make sure you start in the morning and give yourself extra time.

Fun, easy walk through the woods to the fire lookout tower. Ended up doing an out and back because my phone died and the second half of the loop is not well marked.

The tower has great views of the surrounding area. Would love to do the entire loop just to see what there is to see.

Great hike nice view.

awesome steep climb. Only bring your dog is he's a good climber. One of my favorite hikes!!

What a hike. I went this Sunday, October 14th, and the trail was pretty crowded. Parts of it were significantly muddy and rocky parts were basically a creek, with water flowing over the rocks on an incline, so I would recommend waterproof shoes if you're going after a heavy rain. The views were incredible, and I was thoroughly exhausted by the end of the hike. If you are going, I recommend looking at Hike the Hudson Valley's trail guide, as it's very helpful to get a visual look at each turn to get you from the parking lot through the entire hike.
For probably half of the hike, I was walking alone (solo hike but I kept running into people) with a smile on my face. I stopped often to admire the fall foliage (near peak right now! Golden leaves abound!) and pine trees along the quartz rocks. From the start at the lake back to the same spot it took me about 4 1/2 hours.

Great views from summit. Very steap on way down with rock scrambling. Be careful.

Short, quick and easy. First half in is flat, then an easy trek to the summit. I'd say this is great for kids and beginners.

Great hike. Challenging. Be in shape!

Nice short hike up to the top of the Nose. The place was packed but there are several overlooks to afford some peace. The green trail was very muddy so boots were a good idea. Views as always were beautiful.

Hiked this today and it was a great little hike, got to the top in about 50 minutes at a brisk pace, got down in about 35-40. The trail starts out very easy and is clearly marked with tan discs. When you get closer to the top it’s marked with different colored ribbons and it can be a little easy to go off trail if you’re not paying attention. The trail gets pretty rocky and steep towards the top which can be challenging in the wet areas. I would definitely agree with the moderate rating. The views were amazing considering it was a shorter hike!

Great fall hike with the kids. Fantastic views from the summit. But beware the road to the trailhead is treacherous. I wouldn’t attempt without AWD and good high clearance.

Map indicates going up and returning on the white trail. Best to return on the yellow trail. Trail maps were available at the start of the trail, just before the car tunnel.
