This is such a wonderful example of the repurposing power of landscape architecture. It's a very flat walk for all ages, skill levels and elevators provide universal access for all to enjoy.

Unbelievable view from the top. A rocky terrain. The trailhead is behind the Natural swimming pool.

Great trail! The main part is on a carriage road and very easy to walk. There are options to break off onto various (more challenging) footpaths along the route, but even just staying on the main road was beautiful—small waterfalls, scenic views, and interesting wildlife! Not too crowded either. After three miles this trail ends and morphs into other trails, like the Castle Point trail, etc. AllTrails counts it as a 10 mile loop if you do a combination of all of those smaller trails after the 3 mile Awosting trail (which ends at Lake Awosting). The whole ten miles is worth it though...crystal clear lakes, cliffs, rocky outcrops, mostly flat the whole time if you stay on the carriage road. A great walk!

It's a multi-use trail. We've jogged, walked and ridden our gravel bikes on it. Superb for cardio or just a relaxing walk. There's lots of shade for those brutally warm days. Also, they just completed another single track trail on the west side of the lake. Great spot!

Awesome trails. Just avoid the carriageway (boring to hike) – you can catch trails all the way instead.

Also note that the trail to the falls may be cut off after plentiful rain, but it's still worth it just for the Mossy Glen section (immediate left off carriageway at parking lot).

Really fun and engaging hike. There is significant uphill up to Sugarloaf and quite a bit of fun scrambling throughout, however nothing too technical and dangerous in my opinion-no scrambling along a ridge line, etc. I did it solo in about 6 or 7 hours and felt totally safe. The only thing to note is that the area is generally very wet so many of the rocks are a bit slippery, and i do think this would be very challenging to attempt on a rainy day. Sugarloaf does not offer great views, but toward the top of Twin is really spectacular and not that much more of a climb once you have made it to Sugarloaf. Enjoy!

We had planned to do a different easier trail but only had a 2017 tag for our dog, not a rabies certificate showing the shot was good until September, so we couldn’t get in to the park where that trail was. This trail is rated as moderate and it was too much for my 5 and 9 year old. I enjoyed it, especially the views from Inspiration Point and the cool, rocky forest paths. Well marked with signage and flares. Quite a bit of steep hills.

we did this yesterday with a slight alterations. absolutely beautiful views. We got caught in an endless thunderstorm (there was only a 20% chance it would storm) on the way back through Castle Rock which was quite terrifying with all the lightning, but also incredible with the views of the storm over the land. we had done this one before when it was very, very hot and it was much harder so the rains were actually a nature blessing in disguise.

Easy and touristy!

Great trail! Lots of rocks to walk up, amazing views. My 7 year old kept up with no problem, but it's not an easy trail. It took us about 3 hours to complete the loop.

This was a moderate trial (easy at times with some hard points). It was well marked with great views and was great for our 5 year old lab.

This was a beautiful hike! We hiked it clockwise and if I were to do it again, I would hike it counter clockwise. Beautiful vistas and a great place to bring a lunch. Had two dogs with me and they did great!

this is one of my favorite places to go in NYC. it gets really crowded, though, so push to go early early or during a light rain or something.

I love this trail. A few hills in the beginning but mostly flat the last 2 miles. Very well maintained and clean trail.

Watch out for rattlesnakes! One was hiding under a rock I stepped near and warned me I was too close.
Good hike, but the falls were a little lacking with water. Maybe next time will be better.

Pretty cool space. I love that this area could be turned into some kind of open space above street level. Busy and popular!

Did this trail yesterday morning, Absolutly Beautiful and Breath Taking

I have a very special place in my heart for this hike. Some spots are tough.. the views make it worth it. In a few areas you walk through a lot of brush.. check for ticks and mind your footing, all good. Make sure to stop along the way to enjoy the many views you will see.

Challenging rugged terrain with a few nice overlooks on the way to the incredible 360 degree view at Wyanokie High Point. Great for all skill levels.

Was having a great time in this beautiful forest until I came across a black bear right before high point on the white trail with red dot in the middle... Thankfully, it turned once it saw me. Be cautious of your surrounding! Lots of wildlife here, saw deers and a turkey.

I grew up fishing all the time on this lake. The updates and reconstruction are awesome.

I am 63. With a new hip. This was a terrific hike and a wonderful challenge for me. I went with my 12 year old son. The rock scrambling was short but as challenging as I want. After the falls was more difficult than the first part of the loop. The descent after the second scramble was difficult but rewarding. There were several descents and climbs and wonderful views. My 12 year old seemed half mountain goat and loved it. He was tired as well. I am slow so it took 6.5 hours including a 45 minute lunch break at the base of the falls. We even out ran a thunder storm! A great day!

Very easy path to follow with plenty of places to stop, sit and enjoy. Now that the weather is warming up there are plenty of people on the High Line, and when we walked the High Line the crowd was huge, yet the noise was minimal. There are also a handful of food/drink stations along the way as well as a couple of gift shop kiosks and a few street vendors. I suggest you take your time, enjoy the quietness and beautiful landscape.

Loved it, pretty views, some good inclines and some easier areas too
Great places for eating lunch, sitting in the rocks with the beautiful views

One of my favorite places..

Beautiful hike that offers a little of everything; small scrambles, waterfalls, views, footpaths. Perfect challenge to all levels.

This was my first real hiking. Since I am a crazy person and like to push my body, I start with this very hard trail. Oh my God, this trail is very challenging. I would not recommend for someone to do it solo or out of shape. People must be careful and pay attention of your footing. I don’t want to scare anyone, but people can get hurt very badly on this trail. Stay safe.

It is a very pretty hike, but this is more like a skiing trail that can also be hiked (when theres no snow), 90% graveled trails, not difficult at all, the only difficult part is the distance, other than that, the trail is easy and with very little elevation gain, does have a nice seasonal beach that can only be hiked to, I imagine it gets packed though in the summer

Good exercise. Good views. Got a little lost at some points. Overall good hike.
