Fantastic view , make sure you have snow shoes

Had a perfect March Saturday morning for this fun hike. The loop is moderate and gives you a chance to explore the ruins of a stately estate which must have been a lot of fun to visit is the 1920's and 30's. Follow the Cornish trail to the notch trail and end the loop with the Washburn trail back at he parking lot off 9D. There are several glorious viewing points on the Washburn trail

This trail is not accessible to hikers during skiing season. Still giving 4 stars because it looks awesome and I will be back when the snow melts!

We did this in a few inches of snow, which definitely slowed it down. It made the hike really fun and pretty so would recommend. Hiking in the snow actually means less mud and mess but definitely need to be careful with you’re footing. We aren’t experienced hikers but pretty fit and this took us 2hours 45. I’m sure on a dry day it wound have been a lot quicker, more like a 2-2:15.

We went clockwise around this trail and I think I would do the same if doing it again. The ascent clockwise is longer but more gradual. The descent then was pretty steep but nice and quick. Doing it clockwise means you have done the majority of the trail when you see the lovely views at the peak.

Great snowy views!

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

I would give this hike 5 stars if it wasn’t so busy. IT’S TOO CROWDED! (On Saturday morning we barely could find any parking in few miles radius) Views are amazing, but asian tourist groups blasting music trough speakers were ruining our experience. Dogs without leashes shouldn’t be allowed at this trail, but there there at least 3 dogs running freely. My advice would be DON’T GO THERE ON THE WEEKEND! (Unless you like crowds)

Fun! Easy! Really muddy!

Trail is almost entirely melted after today’s weather ! It was a beautiful hike .. you don’t need spikes anymore unless the temperatures drop again. Will be going again soon

Beautiful hike to an abandoned hotel and a fire tower worth climbing. It’s definitely uphill but we did it with a chihuahua and he was fine!

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

Awesome hike!!! Winter time crampons or snowshoes a must. !!! The summit has a gorgeous 360 view. Hike takes about 4-5 hrs. Enjoy!!!

quick 2 hour hike. added Little Stony Point after. once you get to the top. great views and MUCH easier on the way down.

Hiked on 9/29. Amazing, not too strenuous, short hike with one of the best views above the Hudson.

pretty good hike with a nice view of the bear mountain bridge and the Hudson river

Beautiful hike. easy hike around the lake. good traction is recommended in some part of the trail in winter.

Very scenic trail and great for a long walk.
Not hard at all.

Great hike. The start of the white trail up is more of a road and there was recent clear cutting to widen it (not very scenic) but once past the quarry the trail thins out and you get great views of the Hudson. The actual summit is a bit inland past the river views and has a bit of tree cover. Past that it’s a long gentle down hill. Then you hit the Cornish estate Ruins which is an awesome treat on a somewhat uneventful descent. We went in winter so it was empty but I hear summer is a zoo.

It was a great trail. Took my two dogs. Beautiful scenery, lots of rock scrambling. Start early!! I started at 11 and finished at 6-ish.

This was such a great adventure!! Please bring micospikes. At least for no anyways .

Views are great but tower is closed .

Difficult but manageable

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

Pretty difficult because of all the ice but well worth the trek!

Did the falls to high point and back. Currently, microspikes are not needed, but did help.

For food hit up the Hoot Owl which is about 10minutes away. Stumbled upon it.. great food and atmosphere!

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done!! Though, I am partial to the Adirondacks. The views from the summit are really exceptional!

Fun trail with a variety of different landscape. I’d recommend going off trail up through rockier paths whenever you get the chance.

I did this today with my brother (it is January.) After a bit of a heatwave today was a balmy 15 degrees, and all of the snow had melted and then re-froze in the path like a beautiful ice cat walk. There's a solid 3 miles of trail that is completely iced over, and you have to penguin-walk a lot, even with good boots. we fell 3x total. 10/10 will do again.

but seriously, I strongly recommend this in the winter for experienced hikers. A frozen Verkeerderkill Falls is truly spectacular and well worth enduring the cold. There is one section of river that is impossible to cross without dipping a boot, so bag your feet if you're worried about your boots and their water resistance.

Given the very slow moving with the ice, we (ages 26/30) started this at 10:45 and finished at 2:45.

Easy walking pace or moderate running, this stunning gem should be on your list of HV hikes.

Great hike and a little hard but manageable!
