Nice views of the Hudson. Had done this same hike a few years ago. Would not rate this as hard.

As others have said, difficult to follow. Other than the AT section, blazes are not very well maintained and a couple of junctions are very confusing. Had a map and AllTrails open at all times, and still made a number of wrong turns. Wasn’t a big deal in terms of time, but way less fun with your head buried in a map. If you live in NY area and itching to get out and do a workout, fine. Otherwise, meh.

Once it reopens would recommend breakneck ridge instead. Much more challenging and no navigation drama. Plus post hike in town of cold spring is great.
