Definitely not moderate! We took the red/green trail and it took about hour and half each way! Great workout! Beautiful view at the top/ monument. We saw a bear which added to the excitement although my wife would beg to differ. We highly recommend it!

Amazing hike!! I extended it and started from the High Point AT parking lot and did the loop. It’s about 6.6 miles and it adds some difficulty and elevation gain on the AT walking out to the loop. Highly recommended!!

not a real trail for serious mountain bikers. it's a road with people and cars that is paved so any bike will be fine.

Started the hike from the trail at the edge of the AT parking lot and followed the AT to the monument loop trail. We decided to tack on some extra miles once we made it to the top by following the monument loop trail down the back side and then looping over to Lake Marcia before returning back to the car on the AT. Great hike with the dog. The trail had fewer hikers than we expected, given the great weather and visibility today.

I would recommend this trail because it’s has a vast mixture of steep/rocky inclines and also it’s fair share of flat easy walking sections. Monument was a great view!

We took the red / green monument trail. I would recommend this trail to anyone who wants an easy workout. Trails are narrow so be prepared to cross other hikers. No crazy rocky terrain too strenuous to walk over. Some pretty steep areas about an hour in - great for cardio! The monument has great views for photo ops. At the monument, the path to the left of the field to get back to your car.

Great family hike. I took my 5 and 6 year old and they did great! Moderate level of difficulty as stated. They loved the rocky part on the way down by the lake.

I was trying to figure out why this trail is labeled "moderate" instead of "easy," when I fell on a slippery rock. It had rained the night before and the whole trail is comprised of giant slabs of rock that were very slippery. It rained on my way back and it was slow moving. The top was less impressive than views of the monument from the trail.

Was originally planning to do the Monument Trail but didn't realize that the parking near the Monument didn't open until 8. So instead I hiked in from the Appalachian Trail parking area and then back to my car. Pretty rocky section of the AT but great views as you get closer to the Monument, especially from the viewing platform and the Monument itself.

Nice trail with pretty views on both sides towards the start of the trail. Trail marker is a circle - half red, half dark green. We ended up cutting our trail short because we stopped following the red/green marker and picked up a light green one instead. We completed the first half of the trail before cutting off to a different trail - it had a good surface - dirt/rock - and was pretty easy to do. Just be careful to not slip or twist your ankle on the rocks as the surface is not even. If you get hungry and want a good hamburger, I recommend Arlene 'n Tom's restaurant in/near Port Jervis.
