Probably only rated as easy (green) due to the distance of the loop but this terrain is full of large rocks and roots on inclines and descents. It is not “easy” walking, it is a decent hike workout. Especially with two dogs. Trail can be pretty narrow at points but it is very well maintained and very well marked. I saw no scenic views that the Somers town site states and I’m not sure where the “lake and beach” from the other review is. This is definitely just an uphill then downhill trail hike 1.5 mike loop. Not a casual walk.

Also, parking is very small 2-3 cars tops if they park correctly. And it is basically just a clearing on the shoulder of the road. You will park on an incline/slope. Easy to miss.

Great! Could do with family but also enough terrain for the regular hiker! Excellent changes of terrain. Dog and people friendly

Great hike. Took my 12 and 6 year olds along with our dogs. Perfect distance and beautiful views.

Good trail for starters. Had my five year old and he did great. Some challenging spots on the cliffs on the way back down but he had a blast. Lots to explore for little ones.

Mildly steep at some spots but it was a nice walk overall. The pooch went swimming in the lake afterwards as I sat on the beach to take in the sunset. Very well marked trail and for all levels. We'll be back again soon!
