Giving this 4 stars only because Lucy’s overlook had trees/leaves blocking the view. It was clearly a high point, but you couldn’t see anything because of the tall foliage growing from 50 feet in front of the lookout point. Trail was easy/moderate. Not crowded at all on a Sunday afternoon in July. Took me 1.5 hours. Bring water with you if it’s hotter than 80 degrees F, and an extra bottle to drink when you get back to the car afterwards. It’s mainly shaded, but you’ll sweat a lot with the climbs and how long it takes. Pay close attention to the map too. If you follow the loop counter clockwise, make sure you turn LEFT, following the white trail, at the giant boulder (i put an image on the images tab, my husband is standing in front of the boulder in a green shirt). Dont turn right to follow the blue trail, it ends at a dead end and will add 1.0 mile to your hike.

Not a walking trail. Steep rocky sections. Looking for easy? Not so sure -took us over 2 hours.

Love this hike! Trails are wide from so many people visiting. The trails are also very well marked.

White trail to blue, it’s rough, I can break some ankles and it’s a lot of rock climbing and just a lot of jumping rocks. Experts only!

Not much to comment on. The trails are shady and the loops are easy and maintained well. One thing to note and see are the huge rocks like tri-pod rock etc. It was a bit crowded so go to any trail real early.

Nice trial but very very rocky! Not much to see at Lucy’s overlook the first overlook was a nice view of power lines and distance view of Manhattan. Up and down with nothing but rocks. Wear supportive shoes!

Extremely rocky, but doable, I’d recommend being careful if you have dogs with you and there is a red trail that you can use to avoid the sharp incline, you just miss Lucy’s overlook - very pretty streams and rivers

You have to go off the path to get that NYC skyline view but it isn’t too hard to find!

I recommend this trail as it was very well marked and maintained. Was more challenging than expected. Pretty rocky and was a bit steep. Overall great trail for hiking and mostly shaded.

very straight forward loop. The first overlook on the hike gives a better view than Lucy’s, so don’t forget to check that out. You don’t have to backtrack from Lucy’s back to the blue trail. Instead continue following the blue/white markers and it will bring you right back to the main blue trail in no time. In the last mile there was some very muddy spots, but not too difficult to avoid.

HIKING BOOTS/SHOES A MUST! This is an easy trail but I suspect it’s easier if you’re experienced or a dog. Some of the inclines are super steep and be prepared to do a lot of rock scrambling. Makes it fun though and can’t beat the nature of course. I was there on a winter weekday and pretty much had the place to myself though there are currently signs posted that bow hunting might be taking place.

Followed the blue trail up to the overlook and back down and it was about 2 miles! Short and sweet view for a hike w not a lot of time!
