    Stunning views. The trail is fairly well marked. Be sure to stop at the cave entrance where the cold air is blasting up out of the depths of the earth. The rock formations out at the trail center are amazing. I did this trail as an extension of the Millbrook Mountain Trail, making it about an 8.5 mile loop around Lake Minnewaska and up to the Millbrook Mountain lookout. Lovely day! I didn’t see many other people on this trail.

    Beautiful glacier lake. The trail is a wide carriage path for a large section of the way. The climb from the creek to the overlook at the top can be slippery- lots of moss and wet stones. The view from the top is stunning. I added in Gertrude’s Nose Trail to make this a 8-8.5 mile hike.

    Glorious views from the top of the crag. The rock scramble wasn’t bad except for one place where the rocks are very high; took me awhile to find a foothold/handhold there. The trail up the rock scramble is very well marked.

    I hiked this trail last week with two friends. I work out 4-5 times a week, but I’m 38, overweight, and not exactly in shape. Also, I haven’t been hiking since last fall because of winter (I’m from the northern hemisphere). So, judging from some of the reviews and the fact that this is 4.85 mile uphill track, I wasn’t sure how far I’d get. We started a little before 4am with the goal of reaching the summit by sunrise. The moon was bright and the stars were brilliant. I took my time, stopping often to catch my breath. I reached the first lookout a few minutes after 7am- just in time to catch the first rays of the sun as it came over the eastern mountain. The view is unbelievable. The other two had made it in less time. We stayed there for awhile, then headed on up to the actual summit. The phenomenal views make every inch of the climb worthwhile! That 4.85 mile downhill track is hard on the knees and toes! Good footwear is a must. I can’t imagine making that climb in heat and sunlight. The darkness made it easier since I couldn’t see how far I still had to go. This was definitely a highlight of my NZ trip!
