Great hike with some amazing views near and around Cobble Mtn. Started from the lower half and went counter so that I saved the views for the 2nd half of the hike. Perfect hike to do in the fall, the colors are beautiful and pictures cant do it justice. Easy trail to follow and i personally didnt find it extremely hard, did it on a late Saturday Morning after a few showers and had the whole trail to myself until the end where I passed a few people heading up Cobble Mtn in the early PM. By the time I was finishing the weather really cleared up, the sun was shining and the parking lot was starting to get packed, so I expect this hike gets busy when the weather is nice, luckily I dont mind hiking in the rain and the sun was out by the time I started the 2nd half of the hike, so I was able to enjoy Cobble Mtn for myself. This trail has a lot of boulder crossings which were very slippery after the rain and a few of the trails acted as streams, so I highly recommend you have waterproof boots with good traction. Great place to go after this hike is Kent Falls Brewery, its a working farm brewery and they have some great beer on tap made right there for a very reasonable price, plus the workers there are super friendly, youll thank me later!

Easy walk up to the fire tower. As others said, nothing special about the hike itself, but the view from the fire tower is spectacular.

enjoyed some great views from the cliffs and brought a hammock with me and enjoyed some relaxing time by the river.

nice trails, near a river, moderately busy, lots of dog walkers and dog pick up bags available.

Nice hike. Started walking through camping area to trailhead, but then trail opened up and view at the cliffs was great. Got to see rock climbing class and kayakers. Creek was full of white water, impressive from above and at water level. The climb at the midway point and at the end of the loop were a good work out.

It was a nice trail. Easy at first, a little boring walking through campsites to get to trailhead, but the view from the top of the cliffs was great and the climb at the midway point made for good workout. Enjoyed watching rock climbing class and several kayakers. Abundant rains caused white water rapids that were impressive.

This is a great park. With plenty of stuff to see you can easily spend a day or two. As long as you pay attention and plan your hike it shouldn't be to difficult. This was my first time and I had no issues.
I will ask that you keep your dog on a leash as rules tell you to. This is not for your dogs saftey but others on the trail. Don't get mad at me when your dog gets hurt because you don't have them on a leash and they blot up to my little girl. Just be glad I didn't come after you next.

Loved this challenging hike. Almost 8 miles. So glad I went counter clockwise because I got to go up the rock scramble instead of down. Mostly very well marked. A couple times had to refer to app map. Would definitely go again.

Rocks were tough

Nice little hike. Trails aren’t well marked though with many paths splitting off, so be advised.

Nice
hike. It took us about four hours. We started on the eastern side. The trail is marked though at times it was difficult to follow it. The western side has steep sections and a few rocky spots that were challenging. Definitely worth it. We saw just two other people. Visit the town of Kent afterwards.

We had a great time today on this hike. We did High Cliffs and added the loop on the other side of Stover Park Rd, for a total of about 6.2 miles. The extra loop allowed us to descend to the creek, where we took a rest and cooled off with a wade. All in all, the shade was appreciated, the views were really nice, the trail easy to follow, and we even got to see some rock climbers at work. Great morning.

Excellent route for trail running. Quite steep and strenuous at the beginning (first 1.5km/1mile) then slightly technical coming down the summit of Cobble Hill. After that, the trail becomes top notch for running.
I’ve done it in the winter (rocks get icy and dead leaves are slippery) and summer. Good year round and a great workout.

It’s a short walk up a gravel road, nothing special. But who doesn’t love a view from a fire tower?

This place can get crowded, so timing is important. We did the "outer" loop and were able to find some solitude here & there. Beautiful, scenic, and not very difficult.

Not really a loop unless you turn off on the Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail for a few miles and loop back into the Timp-Torne Trail.

Sick views once you reach bald mountain.

Not an easy run, but a doable 7.5 Miles with just over 2000 feet of vert.

Free parking and easy access from the Timp-Torne Trailhead on Route 202 (shorter and easier distance from NYC than Bear Mountain).

Lots of wimpy reviews on here. I wear shorts, singlet, bring a few gels and a handheld water bottle, that’s it.

Easy trail. if you park at the southern entrance with the red barn make sure you cross to the other side of the river to hike on the marked and named trails, otherwise you have a nice walk with the river on your left-hand side for about a mile and have to come back the same way you came.

Way too many different little trails, easy to get lost. 2 and a half hours total, easy/easy-moderate, very few steep hills. Good markings. Good amount of dogs (must be leashed).

We do this trail every summer and it never fails to please. Even the hard part has started feeling easier. Definitely more overgrown this year!!

this trail had a great New England feel. stayed at campground with 3 kids for father's day for weekend which was perfectly rustic.
I echo others advice to start at northend and go counterclockwise to avoid step rocky descend, especially with non teens. excellent river walking stops down before park ranger cabin, westside had nice low cascading falls. the other side down further by pull off had natural pool which were swam in cause it was hot. we'll be back, even with 1.5 half drive from greater Hartford. stop at Dottie's Diner in Woodbury for doughnuts, their best in state.

One of my fave spots with the pup though signage is confusing - no blazes just names and signs are wonky so I always get lost. Always. But I always find my way out eventually too. Great river playing for Dogs too. Easy enough but a beautiful space

Great hike! Nice views and a chance to see the river at water level and above

Great hike! We did the blue trail counter clockwise. 3 of the 4 of us were in sneakers, the other in hiking boots. The sneakers were OK, we just had to go a bit slower. Beautiful views at the top where we stopped to have our packed lunch. At one point around the campground, there are some facilities if you need a bathroom, complete with toilet paper.

Great loop with different terrain and great views.

Good hike, although I'm confused about the 1,735 ft. elevation gain stated on AllTrails--maybe we climbed that much in total ascending/descending, but Cobble Mountain itself certainly isn't that far from the valley floor. We started up on the yellow blazed trail from the Macedonia Brook SP visitor's center and did the blue loop counterclockwise from there. The yellow blazed trail was seriously overgrown with downed trees, but we figured it was a less trafficked trail and therefore less maintained. However, some sections of the blue trail also were pretty overgrown, which we found surprising considering that Macedonia Brook SP is (1) pretty well trafficked and (2) at the epicenter of tick country! The first ~3 miles counterclockwise from the south end of the park were rather boring forest hiking; after recrossing the park's main road, the hike's second half was more interesting: ferns and the brook and the small scramble up to Cobble Mountain were highlights. We spent 2.5 hours completing the loop at a quick clip. BRING BUG SPRAY! Lots of standing water in the park = free arm workout swatting at mosquitos/flies.

A pleasant walk through the woods in Cheesequake state park. Most of the trail is well marked and in good shape. There are a few sections that go through low-lying wet/muddy areas that are not well cared for, e.g., logs on the wet ground in lieu of boards. Some scenic views of the surrounding marshlands but not spectacular.

Nice hike, well maintained trails. The loop is 3.5 miles, not 3. Also, since it's a weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day, there was a $10 entrance fee. Overall it was enjoyable! Not really any spectacular views along the trail but it was still pretty.
