Fairly easy loop just shy of 5 miles. I started at the parking lot on the Blue trail then White. There were some very rocky sections. I took Red up a steep incline that led back to White then Blue again back to parking. If I were to return I would go the opposite way and take the Red trail downhill.

This is a heavily visited area especially around Tripod Rock. I saw no less than 30 people on a Thursday afternoon and an equal amount of cars in the lot. Several large boulders and other geographic features make this worthwhile. The "scenic overlooks" were disappointing.

Overall well maintained, well marked, and clean trails. I saw lots of families and several dogs on leash. Will return to explore other trails.

This mountain is my go to hike. It's familiar, has enough small challenges and the sites and mystique are always a draw. From the view of New York on a clear day to the Tripod rock sitting in the old "temple" down to the breath taking size of the bear rock the place is cool. You can also follow the orange trail around to the lake. If you want to make a day of it cross the road to Turkey mountain. If you live in the area and haven't been here you are missing an incredible and beautiful spot.

Started on the blue trail and came back via white trail. Blue trail is for beginners and gets a bit indepth while you head to white trail.
