Several outlooks over the Hudson from different points along the trail. At a brisk pace, I completed this in 3 hours. Good workout.

Great hike - lots of variety; long parts of the trail are super-rocky, but plenty of spots for great views! Took us 4 hours start to finish.

We started on the trail early morning, around 8.30am; it was still very foggy outside. After two days of rain, the path was quite muddy and the two streams, we passed on our way, were running high. At the intersection, where the actual loop starts, we took the path on the right (red circle) while the yellow circle, coming from the Sugarloaf mountain , we left it for our return. The trail was quite empty. By the time we cleared the forest, the fog cleared also and all the vistas of Hudson and surrounding mountains were quite nice. We recorded the whole trail and it is actually 6.2 miles long. We enjoyed the trail and the fact that it was well maintained.
