Good vertical hiking. Kiddos loved it. It was not to crowded so great for a dog.

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.
