    Jennifer Pawenski reviewed Lake Minnewaska Loop Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Everything I have hiked in Minnewaska has been great and this one is great too. Nice for hiking, picnicking, or just a leisurely stroll.
    A nice lake, great view points, a water fall, and even small beach if you so desire.
    I would suggest going on a weekday or not peak time as it can get very crowded.

    My only complaint was with the Millbrook Mountain foot path - at the start a sign stated that its a mile hike (2 miles there and back)that leads to a some great cliffs (always a favorite of mine), About 75% of the way there is another sign that states you can not go further without a MOHONK pass (its not like i could purchase one mid trail) and upon arrival at the end of the trail i came to find the cliffs were closed for nesting falcons. I am not about to disturb the falcons but it would have been nice to know prior to the start since its really the reason to take this trail.
    Both were surprises and NOT stated anywhere at the start. I only bring this up because everything else was VERY well marked so it seemed odd.

    The trail itself is great. I think i would really like it on another day.
    The problem we had was it was beyond humid and it was the morning after July 4th celebrations and people had left garbage everywhere! Such sadness - pick up after yourselves, people

    But the trail itself is nice. It has some steep sections but some nice view points!

    This is a cute little trail. Nothing overly difficult and definitely something a little different along the river.

    Not a favorite. The first 1/4 mile is through a meadow and was overgrown. Given the large amount of copperheads (i just saw one the day before) and tick borne illnesses in the area - I found it a bit unsettling. The trail does open up but to nothing spectacular. You will get some subpar views of the river and west point but nothing great. Even the walk in the woods was depressing. Im assuming this area got hit hard with recent storm because you are essentially walking though a maze of fallen trees. Its really quite sad actually. There are such better trails in this area.

    I really liked this trail. A steep start but it has some great view points along the way.

    nice little loop. I turned right at the split which turned out to be a slightly longer more gradual incline to the top. Cool fire tower at the top!
