Great views, challenging ascent, sometimes a little crowded at the summit. This trail is a great warmup before larger trips to New England or out west. Dog friendly as well.

Awesome views !! Worth the hike. I would start at the red dot end, although it's the steeper end with a lot of rock climbing, it'll be way harder to come back down the red dot trail vs climb up it. It's easier to come down the other side ( less rocks/more even grounds).. Sooooo many flies tho! I left with about 20 or so bites from head to toe ! Yikes! So come with extra bug spray while wearing long sleeves clothing for protection

Good workout going up, nice views from the top. A bit close to the highway for my tastes.

Beautiful hike. Best to go during the week, but the weekend is still great. One porta potty in the parking lot.

Beautiful view of the Delaware water gap at the top. We usually take the easy trail up and harder trail down (it’s steeper). It was challenging for our 15 lb dog but not for our 50 lb dog. You will see many hikers thru-out the trail and especially at the top. It can seem crowded sometimes. The parking lot has a porter potty. There is also a visitor center that’s a 2 min drive away from the parking lot, which has better facilities outdoors.
