This is a straightforward, mostly uphill hike with few turns. It’s pretty much a straight shot from the trailhead to the top of table mountain. Not too difficult and some nice viewpoints along the way.

We hiked Blackhead and Black Dome from Lockwood Gap. This was a nice hike that was enjoyable since there was views since the leaves were off the trees. The trail up to Black Dome wasn’t bad just a little rock scramble that had great views of Blackhead over your shoulder. The trail up Blackhead seem steeper and there was ice on the trail that was easily avoided.

A very nice spot great views
Fantastic way to spend a December day
The only drawback was having to walk thru the campground since it is closed for the season
Even got to see a deer

Beautiful in autumn

Great hike. Very challenging. Left flashlight at home so started descending from the top during sunset so had to use iPhone as flash light. Be aware of animals at sunset. There are two spots with a great view. However I went all the way to the top as well thinking that’s where the best view would be but there was no view from there. Good luck to anyone it’s definitely a great experience :)

Really fun with amazing views.

Great and nice hiking day with my father-in-law! We did a shorter version of the loop I guess since with the gps tracker after we passed Thomas Cole Mt and we came back, the total distance covered was 8,5miles (3,530ft total ascent). In any case great experience at the Catskills! Very recommended- pay attention to the ice in some parts of path when facing north.

Easy walk. Old hotel ruins are fun also!

This was a great trail however the map layout is a bit misleading. If you Map the walk to Boulder Rock it adds a bit of mileage and i don't think it was "Moderate" . However the views were gorgeous. There are some ledges to be really careful on if you go for some good views.
