Loved this hike! Was a lot more challenging than I was expecting....pleasant surprise! Definitely a moderate hike with some scrambling involved, so be prepared! All in all a great hike!

Beautiful vista, definitely will get the heart rate going on the way up. I recommend combining it to Pinnacle for a loop. Oh, and be prepared for lots of rocks.

It was a awesome ride hit it in early April and the bugs weren’t too bad yet great technical ride

Great hike for the more experienced hikers! Quite rocky and several spots with steep inclines! Gorgeous view once you get to the top! Watch out for snakes! Enjoy but be careful!

Great trail to start my hiking season. Good moderate to difficult trail in some spots. Quite rocky and steep if your into that kind of hike. Pulpit is the "half way" point on your way up to Pinnacle Peak...great place to stop and have some lunch before continuing on. Watch out for snakes!! Didn't see any this past weekend, however we saw quite a few last season! Enjoy but be careful!

Awesome trail. Great if your looking for a long hike! Thankfully we started early, got very crowded as we made our way back to the bottom.

I am used to hiking the NY Adirondack mountains. This was not as challenging but nice start to my hiking year. Nice views. We opted to help me up the gravel road and down the white blaze trail back. I would do this route again to avoid the pounding pavement on my knees on the way down or I would go up and down the same path through the white blazes. Great hike for dogs as not alot of challenging obstacles. Would be a great hike for younger kids as well.

Very excellent hike. Going to the right on the way up was the way to go. Definitely check out the spillway on the way down. It's to the right, and a little off the trail, but worth the jaunt. I loved that there was still snow on the ground and you could see through the trees. It is about an hour drive from where I live, and I love to drive, so it was the perfect trip. I will definitely be going back to check out the colors of Autumn.

Nice trail. South trail has very gradual climb with nice views of the river and as you make the bend toward the North trail, Nice views of Reading city and the pagoda across the valley on Mt Penn. Along the North trail there is the witch's hat pavilion(1890 construction), radio tower and power lines, water tanks... There are a number of historical ruins from when this area was a get-away spot for Reading inhabitants. There are some nice steep climbs, creeks and older trees on the nob tops.

Snow caused our loop to be an out and back. Philly is 50 but there is 6 inches of snow Out here!!!

this makes for a day of outdoor fun and a stop to Cabelas! Very rocky but very beautiful views. I always find that rhere are too many people at the view but atleast it is big enough. Cool to watch birds from here or see the foliage. Watch out for snakes!!

love this hike but watch out for snakes. I always see atleast one while at the view!!!

Well marked trail and I just completed this loop based on the hints and directions given in the reviews. Trails are well maintained. Only thing, I clocked just under 12 miles for the entire loop.

Love this trail. Trails are well marked. Love the Blue Trail a lot... I followed the directions based on other reviewers. I started off where the blue and red trail meet. Took the blue trail which ended up on Perkiomen Trail. To make a complete loop of the reservoir, you need to take Perkiomen Trail followed by Red Trail. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It was my first time there and it was not difficult at all to follow the blazers. Trails are muddy at this time of the year with all the snow melting... I hiked it solo and didn't feel unsecure at any times.

Great trail, very challenging at times, watch out for the rattle snakes

Great views, snow was fun and ended up getting socked with rain but still had fun with dog. took us 3.5 hours

This is a fun trail and I got to hike it this past weekend before and after snow. There is a lot to see and it offers a variety of terrain for hiking, and it’s not difficult. There are also many other little trails to explore.

Nice trail with flat to steep terrain. Great views with historical remnants inter dispersed along trail. McIlvain pavilion a must see.

Loved this trail! There was several points with some breath taking views. It involved a lot of moving around rocks and some climbing which I liked. Absolutely beautiful!

Amazing views.. heard a bear growl after pulpit rock which was scary.. long hike but well worth it.

Great mountain to hike and tailor it to what you like by your trail selection. Best hiked in October thru April unless you like to deal with overgrowth and copperhead snakes.

Great view at the Pinnacle. Well worth the hike and some real neat ice formations tumbling down the stream from the reservoir at the end. Didn't see a whole lot of wildlife but given the weather conditions and the terrain my head was down most of the time.

Moderate Trail, quick 1-3 hour afternoon trip. I've done it now about 7 times, and the less people the better. Go in the fall or early spring for less people.

Great views! Make sure to do the loop, it’s well worth it. Take a stroll down to blue rocks. It’s a little out of the way but you won’t be disappointed.

Love, love, love Neversink! I lived nearby for 8 years and hiked these trails every chance I got. A quick hop in the car to the Klapperthal parking area or a jog from the 26th street entrance made hiking here nice and convenient.

The moderate Orange Trail starts with a picturesque climb over brooks and bridges and offers a nice few-hour hike around the mountain, or a simple walk to the beautiful South Outlook.

The Cove trail offers a quick, but steep incline/decline to or from the South Outlook, and the newer hunting season Red Trail is a nice winding shortcut to the northern part of the mountain.

The steep Purple trail is my favorite! It's fun uphill or down, and its mostly-straight upward pathway is a nice diversion from other windier pathways. Along the way, you'll pass the base of a decorative fountain from a long-ago hotel. Hidden off the trail is the wine cellar from the hotel.

The Blue trail is at the height of the west side of the mountain. It offers a short cut between two points of the Orange Trail. It's coincidence that it's also the nicest workout if you're looking for incline hiking.

The Witches Hat pavilion is located by the North Lookout, which offers a view of nearby Reading. Slightly down hill is a closer view of the north.

There are many types of trails at Neversink. From flat running trails to mountainous bike trails, one can easily make a day of the trails here. I will miss having this place in my backyard!

This is a very nice hike if you are looking for some rugged terrain and climbs. Do yourself a favor and map out your GPS ahead of time because we couldn't find a parking lot and ended up parking at the Exeter Trail entrance, which was fine but adds another 5 miles to your hike. All the fallen leaves have covered up any rocks ( and there are a lot ) on the trail so wear great hiking footwear and don't rush. We did the entire loop and once we got to the "BLUE" marked trail we hiked straight up to the top and was great exercise. Once we peaked we could tell we were in a water runoff trough from the mountain, which was a challenge decent with rocks covered in leaves. From where we parked and hiking all the loops available we clocked around 15 miles in 4 hours. If you plan on visiting before the end of the year wear bright colors as there is hunting allowed on parts of the "ORANGE" loop. There are signs posted, and a detour trail marked with " RED & WHITE" which was actually the most challenging and fun part of our day.
We will definitely hike this again.
