Awesome hike but the top section of Quarry Hill Trail is super steep in places. Bring lots of water in summer as the waterfall dries up and once you get up to the ridge you are exposed to the sun in a lot of areas. Great watching paragliders take off at Brace Mountain.

Started in Hillsdale and ride on Rt.22 isn’t ideal but the rest of trail is lovely shaded and paved. Cover from the summer sun makes for a very enjoyable ride through a pretty section of old farming area of NY.

This trail was Gorgeous and a great to bring your dog. I hiked this back in May and it was muddy but the summit was a STUNNER.

Stunning paved rail trail. Zero bugs in August. Nice ice cream shop close to hillsdale end of trail. Shady in parts.

Really nice little loop. I lost the trail very early on the first time it crossed the river, which it does 4-5 times early on, once I realized that was how the trail went I didn’t lose it again. Overall nice loop with pretty steady climbing all the way up. Pretty summit! Went back down on the south taconic trail which is easy to follow. When in doubt, just stay left bc there are a few forks. The only confusing part was when it looks like you’re heading right into a big fence, then as you get closer you realize the trail takes a right hand turn before you get to the gate. Definitely recommend if you’re like looking for a nice 2-3 hour hike (or 1 hour-ish trail run)

I can confirm what other folks have said that this is definitely a hard, not a medium! Steep rocky scramble and cliffs.

Completed this trail on a hot summer day, brings lots of water because there are no water sources during summer months. I combined this hike with the Bash Bish trail for a overall trip of 16 miles. Trail prior to Alander is a nice walk through the woods. Views from Alander are amazing. Trip over to Brace is a bit monotonous but not very difficult. Views from Brace are my favorite in the entire Hudson Valley. Roughly 100 miles of the Valley are visible. Albany is visible with binoculars..amazing views of the Catskills Shawangunks and Helderbergs. If interested I have a trail recording on my page.

Was pretty humid and I got sweaty so I decided to hop in the lake to cool off. I can’t swim and when I went deeper than I should’ve I started to choke on the water. I guess I inhaled too much and now have an infection in my lungs. Pretty lake

It was a good moderate hike to the sunset rock. Good trail mark. I saw no one on the way or at the rock.

Steep, rocky terrain near the waterfall area, but it's fun and challenging. Definitely doable. Trail becomes narrow at times around South Brace Mountain. Views are awesome once you reach Brace Mtn.

You will need to use your hands a lot, so be prepared for that. Also please wear proper hiking shoes. We met a nice lady on the trail yesterday. Other than that it was just us.

It was a fun trail but the ratings of trails seem so off. This trail (rated moderate) was much harder than Lion’s Head which we did two days ago (rated hard). Took us about 2 hours just to go the two miles to the top (admittedly on a pretty hot day, but also because it’s so steep). Also, there is no water right now because it’s too dry and we never found the “pristine pond”. But it was fun if you like scrambling and the view at the top was great (and breezy but no shade).
