This is a great hike if you a) want something challenging, b) can actually find the trailhead, and c) don't mind some bugs. This little gem of a trail is probably second only to Breakneck when it comes to difficulty level because there is some very steep terrain! You will have to park on State Hwy 32 since there is no parking, and you will find the trailhead tucked off a private driveway/lane just under the rail bridge. Took me a frustrating amount of time to find it so hopefully others can be spared that headache. Other than that, it was a very satisfying hike! I went on a Friday in August and didn't run into one other person, so if you like being one with nature, it doesn't get any better than this!

Wonderful trail, steep and more difficult than moderate in my opinion. Views at the top are gorgeous!

Schunemunk Mtn is amazing! I took the Sweet Clover trail and it was a strenuous hike! About a mile into the hike the trail becomes very steep and rocky. I also saw two snakes on the trail. Also, the railroad tracks are ACTIVE Metro North tracks, so use caution when crossing them!

This is one of the highest peak in the Orange County ny

can't say enough about how much i love this trail. nice climb, gorgeous ledges, expansive views, varied terrain, cool megaliths, funky alpine shrubbery. i do a lot of hiking in new hampshire, and this is very reminiscent of that area- for a hike that's only an hour from NYC, this one hands-down cannot be beat. my absolute go-to hike when i'm in the area.

One of my very favorites. Very run-able. Do not miss the megaliths.

Fantastic views, waterfalls, streams; this hike has it all. There are a few times when you may get off trail so keep an eye on the markers. Wear good boots for water crossings and rocky inclines.

Nice hike. Pretty constant ascend once you get going. Hard to parking though. I had to park on the side of the road. Summit has really nice expansive views of the surrounding area. For me the in and out was 5.3 miles
