Nice afternoon walk, not too hard at all. Some light scrambling and nice views. Definitely good stuff for the proximity to NYC.

Great view from the top and a pretty nice return, but the way out is a lot of working on or near the road and a stone’s throw from people’s backyards.

Love this trail and my kids have grown up hiking this trail.

Fun hike. Fairly steep incline. Great cardio workout. Windy up at fire tower but great views. Want to try and take the yellow trail next time and do the loop since I’ve done the fire tower twice. As previously mentioned in another review, watch the red markers coming down. Easy to go off trail.

CLOSED: Went up there today to see what condition it was in. The park ranger told me it would be closed for about another week, as the threat of mudslides is too great with forthcoming weather and downed trees that need to be removed from the trail.

Great payoff at the top! We hiked a day or two after rain, so some of the lower stretches were muddy & somewhat slick. Pick a clear day, the views are incredible.

Beautiful scenery at bottom and along hike. Ok view at top.

Excellent hike and in NJ probably one of the few with a reasonable amount of elevation.

We ended up doing a 15 mile loop after climbing through heavy rocks in the middle C trail.

This has a lot of rocks and boulders as well as streams so hiking boots are strongly recommended.

We did it Dec 1 and due to mistiming our total hike ended up doing the last hour in complete dark and moderate rain - not recommended!! So if you do it in December plan your return early as daylight goes away by 430 pair so.

Lots of photogenic scenery.

Only put off is the gas pipeline running through certain parts!!

Will definitely go again in summer- probably easier at that time. This time was slippery, mushy and wet!!

The trail was very muddy and wet. It was not well marked, which made it hard to follow the All Trails map. The vistas were not that aesthetic, with houses and highways in view. This trail should be rated Moderate. I recommend going south at the start of the back loop. Overall, this hike was disappointing.

All in all it’s a great trail. I would rate it difficult the rock scramble was a little intense but doable. Got to say I had two mountain dogs and it was a little of a challenge for them. No they were fine but no litte dogs unless u have a back pack

One of my favourite views from the summit

Great short workout/hike. Nice view of the mountains and then the ocean at the top.

Stunning views from the peak. Not sure why the trail is marked as closed, I would encourage you to continue onwards as long as you are in shape and stable on your feet, you will be just fine!

Beautiful mix of trees ocean beaches and tide pools.

Love the views, hiking around the park is a good workout on easy to moderate trails. Go early to beat the crowds and park outside the park and walk in to avoid a parking fee.

Dusty in dry weather, but a good workout, great views and lots of sky overhead.

We have hiked this trail many times and loved it every time. Unfortunately the Woolsley Fire burned the trail.

Relatively easy hike, following a red and yellow blaze trail. On the weekends lots of people hike part of this trail to get to the fire tower, which offers great views over the entire area. Beyond the fire tower it gets quite.

did this counter clockwise , did this trail after minsi for mind the gap. I did prefer this trail only because it had more incline

Partial ice , Mug and snow . Clear mark and it is moderate. But still have some foliage!

Love this hike, it’s a great challenge, has some seriously beautiful lookouts and is typically a low crowd. The rock is really cool and it takes a Little Rock scrambling but very doable. Hiking boots recommended. Bring water and keep track of trail bc it’s not clearly marked in some spots.

You can have an easy to intense work out on this trail. I love this park because I have many options to change up the trails and get a good work out in for the day.

it's one of my 'go to' trails in the mid-Hudson valley! I've been hiking this trail for close to 60 years!! I'm now in my 70's, and still love hiking it, regardless of the season! not all that far from home.

Hard work up and down but the views from the top totally worth it. Stunning views up and down the coast.

The views here are unreal. It's a really great challenge. The trails are blazed most of the way. You climb pretty fast, too. You have to make your own decision at the top to hang a left at the giant rock pile to get to the summit with all of the views. Went with trail sneakers, would definitely recommend boots. The rocks get slippery when it gets a bit colder.

This hike is NOT dangerous unless your wearing sandals like some people do. If you start into the canyon and hike to the posted sign at 1.25 m. that says to not continue, you will have a immediate -.1 incline, and it’s very doable. After that it’s smooth sailing.

such beautiful views. a very short hike up to the top but just enough to make you feel like you did a workout

Did a five mile loop. Was good hike, unfortunately it rained a few days before so was a little muddy but it’s all good.
