One of the best blazed trails. The trail guide was a delight! He could tell you every detail. It was a bit muddy in some spots. Some really good views if you take the directions from the guide.

Nice trail to kill a few hours at. Tripod Rock is always a cool little spot and there are a few views but they’re not particularly impressive. Some nice uphill hiking and the trail on the side of the reservoir are super refreshing.

I love reading people's reviews on what they see in the woods. It is the woods so you may see bear, snakes, deer, raccoons etc. You may even get bitten by bugs as well. Expect it, be prepared or just stay home. Anyway i was hesitant to do this hike because of the lame views but decided anyway because its not far from home. The views are very lame in fact. Lucy's overlook has too many trees in the front of it and the high tension wires at other vistas take away from the charm. At 4 or more miles much better vistas can be found at a shorter distance near by at other trails. Just my opinion of Pyramid Mountain is don't understand all the hype.

The pyramid mountain trail system is really beautiful. The trails are well marked and neatly groomed, and there are varying levels of terrain for hikers of different ability. It's perfect for hiking and snowshoeing. That being said, please be aware that there are copperhead snakes present in the area. Obviously this is not the park's fault or responsibility, hikers are guests in the wildlife's home. We were so focused on keeping an eye out for foxes, bears, and deer that snakes didn't even come to mind and our puppy got bitten by one. We got him to the animal shelter for an anti-venom treatment ASAP, and he's going to be okay. I just wanted to make people aware of something I stupidly didn't think twice about.

Full Moon Hike with REI on the yellow/white/blue trail to Tripod Rock in downpour rain. As a beginner hiker there were moments of intensity but overall excellent terrain and vista. Would love to do it again if only to see the moon without an overcast sky and rain. :)

went to this place to trail run. the terrain is a bit tough for trail running, I couldn't get any momentum built up because of all the rocks, tree roots, and rock scrambling. definitely not for trail running if you want to run fast, but definitely a decent hike if you're in the area. wouldn't go out of my way for it though, the views are lame and there wasn't that much to see. the balancing rock was pretty cool to see

Very nice trails. Wide and well marked. We hiked a variation of the loop; after passing Tripod Rock, instead of going around toward Whale Rock we went down along the reservoir on the orange trail. This loop was four miles. We hiked on Memorial Day Weekend and there were plenty of maps at the trail head. There were a lot of people on the trails but it did not feel crowded. The map is also downloadable. We will definately go again and do different loops.

It’s a very lovely place to visit ! As you walk down the trails every so often you’ll find rocks people stack as they go by and it’s overall very peaceful .

The view at the top of this is OK. Got a little lost coming down. Pay attention to the trail blazers, easy to get off course.

A bit crowded at times. Pleasent enough. I liked the rock scrambles. There really were no views even in the winter. It was a nice work out.

Lots of slipping in med, but even more stopping to search for blazes. Only Lucy's lookout had a sign, but we didn't notice a lookout. The view of Manhattan is under haze even on a clear day (think looking for LA from afar). Twice on this "mountain" and the adjacent one we found blazes for other trails that didn't match up with the map. It gets confusing. Bring poles if it's rained or snowed!
