I also did the loop, I wouldn’t rate it as “hard.” The views on the summit were decent, and we also saw an enormous turkey vulture on the top.

Nice views. The white trail up was quick so we took the blue trail down. It was a little tricky coming down the rock scramble - glad we had our spikes as it had snowed the day before and it was icy.

Some of the best views in the local area as far as I know. Glad to have found this hike!

Great short hike. It's steep at the beginning but pays off with huge views.

Fairly moderate hike with the payoff being a view west of the Catskills mountains. Hiked up on the last Saturday before daylight savings to catch the sunset, and I was not disappointed!!! Beautiful view and a GORGEOUS sunset...sun dropped behind the Catskills.

I am a very frequent visitor to Macedonia Brook State Park and have done the route indicated by the map (up White Trail to Cobble Mountain and back) as well as the much longer (6.2 mile) circuit of the entire park on the blue trail, which also goes over the summit of Cobble Mt. I frequently hike up Cobble in winter. I would classify the White trail to the summit of Cobble as being an easy to moderate hike, certainly not hard, assuming good fitness. But it is steep and rocky and hiking boots and trekking poles are advised, and micro-spikes or light crampons in winter. As others have noted, the views to the west from the summit of Cobble are wonderful. If one takes the Blue trail north from the summit of Cobble one comes to a rock scramble (at UTM 18T, Easting: 624815 
Northing: 4626248) that requires moderate rock climbing skills to negotiate. This scramble could be dangerous for an inexperienced hiker. The track in the posted map appears to stop just short of this rock scramble.

One really steep part that requires hands to climb/descend.

It was the perfect trail to get back into hiking with. Peaceful, quiet, minimal other hikers, not too steep.

One of my favorite places. Awesome view from the top. There is a section of the green trail, between the blue and orange that requires some serious rock negotiation. It's about a 15 foot vertical section.

If your at the right place at the right time you can treat yourself to the Huckleberries!

An incredible view of the Catskills looking West. Missed the turn up the steep way on the white trail because there was no sign at the junction by the stream indicating this was the continuation of the trail. So we continued up straight ahead along a more moderate path until we met the white trail on the way to the peak. Having gone down it, glad I did, but there needs to be a sign here.
