Rugged hike with outstanding views, waterfalls, ruins. Moderate to difficult. The first part going north from the visitor center / cafe (fully stocked) heads down the cliff with moderate exertion and you get to a beautiful waterfall emptying into the Hudson. At this point, if you want an easier hike, turn around and go back up. If you continue the loop and head south along the Hudson, it gets harder.

Awesome!!

Boulder field is really tough, hike up the cliff and by water fall is really steep. A lot of beautiful views. Really enjoyed it. Next time I would hike down by the waterfall and then just hike back. Boulder fields we’re just too hard

ok so far the best trail. my first time at the sades. I'm a bit foggy on the actual mileage. said i did 13 miles..hmm not so sure about that. the app rating is pretty accurate as a hard trail. A word of caution i wouldn't go after a rain shower you might fall on your booty butt due to alot of scrambling at the cliff base. Great views and a two hiker thumbs up!

This was AWESOME!! Definitely a challenge, and a LOT of scrambling. I don't recommend the longer trail loop for kids...especially under 10. Some of it is very steep, with moving rocks. Great sweat l, but not toooo difficult.
