definitely will return to this hidden gem, especially in the fall. the steep inclines lead to spectacular views and the trail riding along the ridge was an unexpected treat.

One section of trail isn't marked very well, but other than that is was a great hike. Awesome view.

Beautiful view of the lake !! Went out with my 8 and 4 yr old . They loved it . However there were some points that it was difficult to follow the trail, I think it needs better signals of the trail. At some point I thought I was lost, kept going around in circles 

Chauncey Peak-Giuffrida Park is a hidden gem. Just the right length with good hight and features to make you return again. Also an entry point for Lamentation Mountain.

Did a modified 4 mile loop of this park. One of my favorites in the region. Definitely worth checking out. Very rocky and trails go along large cliffs with beautiful vistas.

Hiked on the blue and yellow trails yesterday. The yellow trail is very rocky while the blue trail is incredibly steep and very narrow on the inclines. Most of it is straight up. I had my 20 pound dog with me who hiked it just fine. There were lots of other dogs around as well. Be prepared for wildlife...snakes in the water and foxes on the trails. Beautiful place.

Nice hike. The part of the trail to Chauncey Peak is steep and rocky. The scenery is beautiful and well worth the hike to the peak. Seems to be well maintained.

I love this hike for an after work hike. I (believe i) posted a route that uses blue trail, red, and back to blue that gets both Chauncey and Lamentation.

I did the blue and white trail. It was very pleasant, some rocky area for a little challenge but not hard. View was gorgeous. Great for a quick adventure during the day!
