Interesting trail with awesome scenic views. The shore trail on the bank was sometimes beautifully rocky and river views astonishing. I was puzzled a couple of times reconciling between the map and the terrain but would find the path quickly. The only really physically demanding was the ascent to the Women confederation monument. The day was cold so mud was frozed in those few areas of the forest on the cliff. And as people commented previously too, the trail somehow appeared longer than anticipated, 7.4 miles for us

It’s a little longer than expected. Ended up being about 7 miles. Conditions were pretty good today not too muddy and only a few icy stop. There is construction at the beginning of the long shore path which makes for a dangerous hike down. Some spots were challenging but only for a short period of time. It was a good workout.

Went around midday on MLK Day... Not many people were out, so it felt like we had the trail to ourselves at times... Ended up parking at Pallisades Park Alternate Parking on RT 9W (check Google maps), as the Park Commission lot was full and access to Henry Hudson Dr. down to the Marina was blocked... It's a nice scenic trail along the river. We walked north along the shore and then south on long path. The path up from the shore had me breathing heavily and I took a few short breaks, but the rest of the trail relatively easy. It's probably less physically taxing to go "up" on the southern end (loose gravel incline), but I think it's probably more scenic to walk north along the shore trail than south... as others have noted, the u

We had the trail to ourselves- how nice! Well marked, good climb and descent. Portion along the river very soothing. Only comment - the upper potion runs along the Palisades Parkway and you more road noise than expected.

Great easy/moderate hike. Very busy on a Sunday afternoon but easy to pass people. Go early as parking fills up. Recommend starting in the woods north of the lot, going clockwise, for an easier gradual hike up. If starting heading out south, the upward climb is more of a steep staircase. Our dogs loved it!

The trail was very pretty along the water, and the climb up from the river was a nice leg burner. The walk back parallel to the highway was a little noisy and less scenic, but has some ok overlooks to break up the grind. On the small upper lot, I heard they were towing cars not parked in designated spots.

HikingGreat!

Nice trail, mainly flat with some steep up and downs. First part is next to highway, then halfway you go down to the shore and it’s beautiful. There is some dead fish along the shore. Went with my almost year old puppy and she loved it.
