Wonderful little hike up the Long Trail with the reward of a beautiful view of Brandon Gap and the Adirondacks to the west. Signs are at trailhead notifying that the trail is closed March-August for the Peregrine falcons that nest there.

Just got back. We loved it once we got to the view (as usual)! The climb is steep at times and mostly rocky!!! The view-spectacular! Can’t get much better!!!

The reviewers who talk about a great view aren’t going to the top of Mount Horrid, where there is no view that I could find near the peak. There is a nice view from Great Cliff, on the east side of the mountain about two-thirds of the way up. Nice hike with some steep spots and rock stairs to the top.

Great elevated view for a quick park and hike. Made it up and down in 45 min - a hour total. Gets steep and stair like in parts

We went in February (5 teenage kids and 3 adults). There was still some snow and ice on the ground which made the hike a bit treacherous in places. A pretty hard hike getting to the top, we had problems finding the markings, but that could of been because we were trying to avoid patches of snow and ice. I wouldn’t recommend little kids for this hike. The view from the top made the hike worth it. Would do it again in warmer weather!

Great quick hike that is a bit more step than some comments may disclose. Views are amazing!
Tip: drive a few minutes past the parking lot to an overlook where you can see what exactly you hiked!

get ready to scramble up steep terrain, but very short and great views to where you park your car!

Quick up and down with a great view.

Quick hike with a fantastic view as the payoff!!! Also as an avid bird nerd I recommend to use your binoculars before you head up the see the resident peregrine falcons who nest in the cliffs

Pretty view. Short hike, decent incline and somewhat challenging at times but nothing too bad. No special equipment needed.
