Wonderfully fun climb in the gunks. Lots of rocks/boulders to traverse. The rock scrabble was fun but a bit challenging only because we got caught in a rain storm so it made the rocks slippery. There is one part that is very narrow and even with a tall slender frame it was a tight fit.
The hike started right at the mohonk mountain house. Since we were only going for the day hike (as opposed to staying at the house) they make u park about 1.5 miles away from the house. It’s also $26 pp which seems ridiculous to me. There are explicit instructions for day hikers that u aren’t allowed to even enter the mountain house. Overall though it was worth it.

I loved all the details , the bridge and the great signing they have going on. A decent hike for a beginner and awesome views along the way. Highly recommend !

Please tell people it costs $21 PER PERSON to hike here! This is absolutely ridiculous.

Nice trail, completely in shade with lovely green cover and little brooks crisscrossing every now and then like naughty kids. Not very steep as few reviews suggested. The white markers take you right to the top and extend onto the AT. Do not miss the big pile of rocks once you feel like you reached the top. The view to the vista is left from the pile and can be easily missed. Technically the trail ends at the vista unless you are a through AT hiker. Nice to meet the through AT hikers and have a chat with them learning their experiences.

The scramble on Bonticou Ascent trail is like an adult’s playground. It was more challenging than Breakneck Ridge for me, but the actual scramble was the perfect length—not too short, not too long. Just right. Loved it. And the view is gorgeous when you get to the top. The way down is laughably easy, but a great break for the arms and legs. I can’t wait to do this one again, and hopefully with friends next time. You def want a hiking partner to capture a cool shot when you get to the crag.

Great for children. Loved the views of the Hudson

Hi all, I was wondering if there’s someone who want to join this trail during this week! Let me know. INSTAGRAM: @Sarisdu or sarisdu@hotmail.com.

loved this rock scramble. the view and white rock at the top is fantastic. great views.

Views are beautiful for what is a short moderate hike but unfortunatley this is an extremely popular hike that gets overcrowded on the weekends. Its become such a problem that the town has come out creating and enforcing new parking laws so be carful in that aspect.

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).

Awesome Hike !!! This was my first hike. Great hike for beginners. Short hike with Great View!

Such a great hike on such a beautiful day!

Decent trail. Not worth the 15$/person and passive aggressive attendant where we parked at the head though. Would not do again.

I love this trail!!! So much fun! Make sure you have good hiking shoes.

Loved the variety of terrain, a lake, castle ruins, views of Wanaque Reservoir and Appalachian foothills from high up near the water tower. This map will help you find your way: NYNJTC_NJParkMaps-RamapoMtn_2015-85x11.pdf

Loved this trail. My kids were apprehensive once we saw the rock face, but they went for it and ended up loving it.

Amazing views! I will go it again !

This trail was great and had breathtaking views! It took us about 3 hours total. An hour hiking up. An hour at the top having lunch. An hour hiking back down. It is VERY steep coming up and down, we needed a 5 minute break going up. Also very rocky the entire hike. Make sure you have the proper shoes! When you reach a giant rock pile with the wooden sign that says “View” make a left by the blue dot trail and follow that up to see the view!

It should be an up and down, not an out and back, but it is so fun and rewarding! Amazing views!

Nice wide trails through lots of terrain types. Great for kids!

A total blast. Makes me want to learn whatever kind of climbing this is (bouldering?). And the views!!!

I started off at route 515 in Jersey. there begining is flat and easy on a boardwalk most of the way. when you cross route 94 you approach stairway to heaven. it's a steep climb mostly rocks zig zag top the top. beautiful views when you get there

incredible rock scramble. amazing views.

This trail has it all! I highly recommend the rock scramble as it affords you a view of the valley that is remarkable. Once you are at the top, you can take a less steep trail down. It's close to New Paltz where you can go after for a post hike meal or shopping.

Excellent hike! Very strenuous and at the 3/4 mark I questioned why I was still doing it hahaha, but totally worth it! The view was great and we met a lot of great people, religious hikers and through hikers. There’s a farm across the street, a small farmers market with a bathroom. Good for quick stop.
