Great views at the top. Pretty well marked but you have to be aware.

Stay to the left to take the easier trail with switchbacks. Still some hills to power through, but the other trail is much steeper, yet shorter if that's what you prefer. Stunning views at the top, will be back again to visit once more of the leaves change!

Easy to moderate hike depending on which trail you choose to take up to the viewpoint. Can be done as a loop, which is how we usually do it. Great hike for kids and dogs. Usually not too crowded and nice views of Lake St. Catherine and the surrounding NY and VT mountains. Perfect for a quick hike - takes about 20 minutes to the top from the parking area at a moderate pace.

Easy walk with a surprise waterfall in the beginning. Missed the loop turn off so did a few extra loops. But nice and leisurely.

Nice, easy to moderate hike, with two ways to the top that can be done as a loop. One trail, which heads south from the kiosk, is much easier with switchbacks. The main route is steeper but shorter. The view at the top is very nice, with Lake St, Catherine in the foreground and the southern Adirondacks to the west. There is a platform at the top for camping. Across Endless Brook Road is another trail system for hiking and mountain bike riding maintained by Slate Valley Trails, with some more nice views.
