Beautiful hike. Lots of views at several different points. Rock scrambles. Lots of up steep up hill and down hill rocky climbs. Several streams, ponds and waterfalls.
We almost brought our two younger kids with us 2 &; 5 bc we normally bring them when hiking back home in VA. I’m so glad we didn’t. We never could have made it with them. Excellent workout! We saw NYC from one of the peaks. If this is moderate, hard has to be mountain climbing. Be prepared. Bring more water than you think you’ll need. Lots of spiders and bees also. We sprayed several times... hopefully no ticks.. headed home now.
We also came across 5 snakes . All slithered away from us. Certainly a true adventure for our family!

Really enjoyed this hike! Waterfalls were gorgeous and the high point had amazing views. There was some confusion with the trail markers not being the most obvious but we adapted.

A little tough to follow the route without knowing you have to switch from HB (blue trail) to the very top, then take CH (yellow) down to PB west (white) back to HB (blue), but nice tough beautiful route. Looks like the pool under the falls would be a great refreshing swim in summer.

Went on 3/30 and could not cross with our small dogs because it was totally flooded from melted snow. Others could cross but the water was a river and about 6-12” deep... will return someday!
