Eagle Rock has a special magic that I haven’t seen matched by many parks. It has a vast array of terrains (from rocks and boulders to manicured trails to mossy wonderlands to some of the best off-trail hidden gems). In the nicer weather, I’ll find myself here at least 3-4 times a week. Keep an eye out for stick teepees and fairy houses on the trails! In the last couple years there has been trash and graffiti problems, but unsure if it’s due to it’s rising popularity or lack of staff upkeep and/or funding.

The view at the top of this is OK. Got a little lost coming down. Pay attention to the trail blazers, easy to get off course.

Took my mobility scooter out here today - perfect.

Great workout, varied terrain

Watch our for the blue trail, I ended up on a road and decided to walk back because I was confused. Otherwise great glute workout on the way up!

Nice to get out for some fresh air, but I could hear cars driving nearby the whole time, and the only sign I saw on the trail was very adequate: "Where's the waterfall?"

Awesome trail see video below of our winter hike)

A bit crowded at times. Pleasent enough. I liked the rock scrambles. There really were no views even in the winter. It was a nice work out.

Great trail. Clear and well maintained. Good mix of ascents, descents and flats. Several opportunities to take cross trails to shorten the loop if needed. As well as extend your trek.

Nice spot

Lots of slipping in med, but even more stopping to search for blazes. Only Lucy's lookout had a sign, but we didn't notice a lookout. The view of Manhattan is under haze even on a clear day (think looking for LA from afar). Twice on this "mountain" and the adjacent one we found blazes for other trails that didn't match up with the map. It gets confusing. Bring poles if it's rained or snowed!

Nice mountain. 4.6 mile loop

The type of trail that offers a little bit of everything when you need to get out!

Lovely, and saw some huge deer!

The description sums it up very well. Nice short hike on well maintained trails. Good for all skill levels. Moderate to heavy visitors.

From the parking area, I took the yellow to orange along the reservoir. Then turned back on the white, and looped around on the red stripe to blue. From bear rock I took the white back towards the parking area.

Yellow/orange was incredibly well marked almost to the point where it was a bit obnoxious. Everything after that, you had to pay some attention. Yellow/orange was a really nice stroll along the water then up some rocks to cliffs overlooking the water. Red stripe seemed a little less traveled - was a fun little stretch. Blue was steep at times- and very rocky.

Maybe not the most exciting hike or the most rewarding views, but at the end of the day was a very enjoyable hike with varied terrain.

AMAZING trail ups and downs.

Great area with lots of space and options. Even on busier days you won't have to worry about crowding (on the trails), however, parking can get a little tight but there is plenty of additional side of the road spaces available. Also- make sure to check out the visitor center, especially if you have kids!

Great trail, paths are well marked.

The trail and the sites and pictures obtained were absolutely breathtaking, but the way this trail is marked is unbelievably confusing. We went on the blue trail and ended up getting lost. We actually had to walk on the main roads for 3.9 miles just so we could get back to our car. Not sure if we would come back to this trail.

Very nice trail, especially in autumn.

Agree with other comments... the trail is pretty easy with well traveled and defined paths with little in the way of obstacles/challenges. However, you do get some killer views and still a really nice way to spend a couple of hours. You can mix it up with some of the trails that cut through the center of the reservation to increase the distance.

Fantastic hike. Great views with some tough terrain in spots.

Perfect for a nice scenic stroll on a hot day.

A lot of trails available for all levels, that are easily marked. Pretty lake. If you climb up the white trail you can find a really old castle from 1900. Ok for dogs.

I absolutely love seeing the deer every morning.

Fairly easy loop just shy of 5 miles. I started at the parking lot on the Blue trail then White. There were some very rocky sections. I took Red up a steep incline that led back to White then Blue again back to parking. If I were to return I would go the opposite way and take the Red trail downhill.

This is a heavily visited area especially around Tripod Rock. I saw no less than 30 people on a Thursday afternoon and an equal amount of cars in the lot. Several large boulders and other geographic features make this worthwhile. The "scenic overlooks" were disappointing.

Overall well maintained, well marked, and clean trails. I saw lots of families and several dogs on leash. Will return to explore other trails.
