Quite some elevation there but manageable. The lake makes a great rest spot or return point.

It was a good hike, more grounded than anything. Not so scenic but we did come across the pond which swimming is not allowed. The trail had a lot of missing tags but it wasn't so hard to get lost and eventually come across the next tag using this handy app. The end part of the hike was cool, you'll have an opportunity to climb up a rocky hill which we thought was nice. T-Mobile in this area sucks! Verizon works best. If you're heading back to NYC or NJ afterwards stop by the delicious Lomo Truck (Peruvian Food Truck) Instagram @the_lomo_truck...so worth it after the hike. P.S.Some folks mentioned there being waterfalls on this route but we didn't see it.

The parking lot is small, there were ~10 spaces left when I arrived at 9:15 am and a small handful open at 1 pm. Pros: - Trail is generally well marked, though it does get a little confusing in some parts - Island Pond is beautiful, make sure to check it out up close when you can because it is hard to see elsewhere on the trail - The Lemon Squeezer slot canyon is super interesting and you can climb on some cool rocks (or go around if that's too hard). - Avoids most of the hard-to-follow stretches on the Elk Pen Loop Trail Cons: - Parking lot is not large and will be packed when you leave, park strategically if possible - No views from the top of the hill, too many trees in the way Disclaimer: I actually did Elk Ridge Loop Trail, which is a longer/harder trail that includes the "out" portion of this one. I'd recommend doing that instead if you'd prefer a longer/harder hike: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/new-york/elk-pen-loop-trail

Moderate climb up with some fun sightings & terrain. Lemon Squeeze is a fun time but if you have a pack, you’ll probably need to take it off since it’s narrow. A little rocky but doable in sneakers if you’re careful. Get there in the morning (before 8) to guarantee parking and avoid crowds.

Not friendly for the kids under 5. We went with a 3 year old and a 5 year old and it was too rocky and high for kids. Otherwise it was really fun and pretty and worth the workout!
