Travel from open fields through the woods and hike to the top of a prominent, stark-white crag overlooking the valley. (Optional, challenging rock scramble up.) Note that there is a small fee, per person, as this is on the Mohonk Preserve.

Did on 8/8/17 great short hike with my 9 and 7 year old. I haven't done it in decades. Was a ton of fun and brought back great memories.

Very nice hike, but a particularly challenging and potentially dangerous scramble section if you're not familiar with scrambling. Parts of it were like rock climbing and could be very hard. Also, be prepared to pay a gate fee of $15/person during peak hiking season. Awesome views, but a little technical for a casual hiker.
