I very much Enjoyed this hike. Not very difficult...great for folks with not much experience hiking as well as families. Calebs Peak is a wonderful spot to stop and enjoy the view south through the Housatonic valley...pack a lunch!!

Hiking to Caleb peak was about a 1 mile rock scramble with nice views at the top. We continued on the AT just to get some distance in, although views weren’t as nice after the peak. A good day hike!

Beautiful hike. I went straight through to Cornwall Bridge. Easy climb up Caleb’s peak. The rock scramble coming down St. John’s ledges is tricky so be aware of that. Really beautiful right by the Housatonic River once you get down the ledges (and flat!). My hike totaled 11.4miles from 341 to Rt 4.

Lovely views and just the right amount of difficulty. Don't know that I would call this Hard....maybe if you had never been hiking before. I brought my dog and he loved it too!
