    D. D. Laury saved Shohola Falls Trail

    This is a nice trail; I would rate it around an easy moderate or a easy+. The trail is well marked and generally maintained with only a few blown over trees. The map on the right is incorrect though. The trail actually runs up to a road at the halfway point and starts down (if you do North to South) on the other side of the gorge. There are a few waterfalls but it is hard to see them due to tree growth. Not much wildlife, I say no one on the 5 mile run, lots of mushrooms. I would have no reservations about taking my dogs here. If you trail run, it took me a little over an hour at a reasonably easy pace. Incidentally, I would do this one barefoot if you are into that.
    Tip 1: The Ranger has put up signs that state that you shouldn't start on these trails after 3 PM. He told me that this is usually a 3 to 3.5 hour hike and it can get dark before it is completed.
    Tip 2: On the South trail coming back down the trail seems to go to the "lookout tower"; a wooden platform. There the trail ends (another trail is closed on the south side of the platform). You have to go back up to the last red marker which says Picnic area to pick it back up. The Ranger said that many people get confused at that section as I did. Thinking that the picnic area was a spot to stop and eat I continued only to find the trail ending. What they mean is that the picnic area is in the direction of the parking lot.

    close to town and easy to find. by going up the main trail and circling around on the yellow then sleepy hollow trail you can get about 1.5 miles out of it. can tell that it was maintained but there are a number of big trees down over the trail from the winter storms.

    Good option if you are in the Hudson city area. Tips: can be muddy, many trails are out and back (not as much fun as loops), map is not very helpful (IMHO), trails are fairly clean, dogs allowed on leash but many non-compliant owners and there is a lot of dog faeces on the trails, can be windy as you are overlooking the Hudson river. Not many humans about; averaging 2-5 per visit. Saw turkeys, squirrels..., + evidence of deer, coyote, fox. Easy trail also easy to get a bit disoriented. Well maintained.
