This is a beautiful trail. I took a wrong turn and modified it a little, but was worth it. Will definitely do it again.

great little trail for a casual hiking with a fellow rock enthusiast

Lovely view in September!

it was a good trail! I wouldn't really recommend dogs. I had to pick up my two labs and help them climb up the side of the rock part of the mountain. overall it was good!

Nice easy trail with beautiful views. I'd rate it easy.

Hiked today did millbrook mtn trail to Gertrude's nose out and back awesome both ways views are magnificent 11.5 miles easy walk though. I highly recommend if you are in the area

Completed this hike yesterday. My favorite hike in the low/mid Hudson Valley region! Beautiful and near as difficult as it is rated. For moderate to fast-paced hiker, easily done in fewer than 3 hours, even with enjoying views and taking photos.

My new favorite hike. Gorgeous views.

BEAUTIFUL SCENERY. Waterfall, stream, mts.
Great falls after a heavy rain. Won't be much if it's been dry, but the hike is gorgeous either way.

We parked in the lower parking lot and took the mossy glen trail (blue), which is almost an immediate left off the lower carriage road. ( corner of parking lot ).
This trail hugs the peters kill for almost 2 miles. The water tumbles over so many rocks / boulders it's beautiful. We followed the blue trail left and up to the upper carriage road and made a right.
Follow the carriage road for about a mile and look for the orange blaze on the right for rainbow falls trail heading downhill. (Easy to miss.. pay attention).
Follow the trail for about a half mile to the base of the falls. Continue along the base of the falls following the orange markers UP the short rock scramble.
Once at the top enjoy the view of the Catskills in the distance. WOW.
We followed this trail to the lower carriage road and made a right which leads back to the parking lot in about 2 miles or so.

Nice trail to introduce a person to hiking at Minnewaska. Views of lake, rock ledges, and panoramic view of Hudson valley but not too difficult or too long.
