HikingBlowdown

We hiked this as a loop counterclockwise from the parking area. Great weather and nice views. Many blowdowns on AT portion between the intersection with Appalachian Way (north end of lake) and the intersection with Fahenstock Trail. As noted by others, a loop necessitates a road walk on Route 301, although we used a few side trails to stay in the woods whenever possible.

Only did about half the distance. Peaceful hike, not much in the way of views though

Great trail, some easy scrambles and nice to be in the woods. Very enjoyable. Easy to follow and well marked.

Hiking

Not a difficult hike, but not the best views either. We parked at Clarence Fahnestock Park and paid for overnight parking, and hiked North on the AT. Great area to pitch a tent along the path.

can anybody tell me where the trail ends? I'd like to park my car there..if anybody has any information about that please let me know!

Recent storms have toppled some trees on the trails. Nice hike otherwise. Beaver Pond is worth checking out on a very short detour.

This might be a moderate hike but with so many trees down on the trail, it was challenging at places.

Beginner hike. Nice view of lake. Decided to descend to beach from view point.

HikingGreat!

We went counter-clockwise on the loop, and we took a few moments to take the short offshoot to Duck Pond. There were quite a few bugs but they weren't biting. There's nothing particularly significant about this trail- its just a beautiful walk through the woods. The best quality of this trail is probably how lightly trafficked it is.

Hiking

I would not recommend hiking this as a loop. Walking on route 301 is very dangerous. There are parts where there is no visibility and no shoulder to walk on. To make it worse, cars park over the white line making people walk in the road. With growing popularity of this park, I would highly recommend hiking this as an out and back to the view point on the Appalachian trail.

Trail was well kept and pretty, but as others have mentioned, didn’t love how much of this was on/near 301. Very easy to get turned around since there are a ton of intersecting trails around this area.

A nice easy hike but very easy to get turned around and go in the wrong direction if you aren’t looking at the map often.

really pretty hike. i made it a little longer by checking out the small trail to the AT hiking area. i don’t like how much of this trail is on route 301. the trail follows the taconic parkway for a little bit also, so there’s traffic noise. but otherwise it’s a pretty hike with good climbs.

RockyScramble

great run. many interesting trails can get confusing. zero mud. very fun

Really nice trail, esp sections of the AT. Mostly shaded, mostly dirt paths with some large-rock sections and several small-creek crossings. As it’s a gorgeous holiday weekend day, and as the trail is mostly narrow, it was a bit more crowded than we would’ve liked, though not compared with more popular trails like Anthony’s Nose or Breakneck.

Nice, pretty trails but it was very confusing trying to find our way around. Barely any trail markers and it was very easy to go the wrong direction.
