    Summited in 20-25 minutes from the front face of the mountain. Starts right in front of the bear mountain bridge and goes straight up, was a great fun scramble but definitely hard for inexperienced hikers.

    Completed 10/30/18 - the trail is long and gradual. If you like to get the climbing out of the way, this trail is not for you. There was a couple inches of snow from the loj and once we reached the top there was more than a foot of snow. Clouded-out conditions once we reached the top, but the alpine zone was unbelievable, even without the mountain views it felt unreal. I wouldn't do this hike without spikes or snowshoes in the winter. Probably don't need snowshoes right now since there was huge rainstorms past couple of days, but waterproof hiking boots and spikes will be much needed. Lots of hidden puddles, mud, and run-off all under the snow tuesday made this trail a lot more daunting. The overall experience and trek of this hike made this my favorite journey I've ever embarked in Nature to date, the high peaks are surreal.

    Would rate this moderate, but it's a quick climb up to this lake. Very breathtaking, can be done in a hour.

    Very breath-taking hike, but be prepared for black flies if you hike now. No hard scrambles just be prepared to ascend 1900 feet though.

    Waterfalls get nicer higher you climb. Go when there's snow or after rain

    3/27/18 went to Macedonia Brook State Park. Go the way the map tells you to go because there's a moderate-hard rock scramble going up cobble, which was unpleasant going down in snow haha. Views on cobble are great and watch for bears saw bearprints a couple times

    Beautiful New York hike. Stayed for sunset and views were awesome

    Amazing scenic views, bring tons of water, be prepared to hike. It's a difficult hike but you could do it, best rock scramble in hudson valley.
