Great hike. The start of the white trail up is more of a road and there was recent clear cutting to widen it (not very scenic) but once past the quarry the trail thins out and you get great views of the Hudson. The actual summit is a bit inland past the river views and has a bit of tree cover. Past that it’s a long gentle down hill. Then you hit the Cornish estate Ruins which is an awesome treat on a somewhat uneventful descent. We went in winter so it was empty but I hear summer is a zoo.

Pretty difficult because of all the ice but well worth the trek!

Easy walking pace or moderate running, this stunning gem should be on your list of HV hikes.

Rigorous for the first mile or so, but relatively easy the rest of the way. Spectacular view looking south rewards the climb. Easy 15-20 min walk from Cold Spring Metro North.

It was a good day for hiking. But in the afternoon the trail was a bit too crowded. Some groups monopolized the scenic overlooks. Normally I would give this 5-Stars.
Also I am very pleased with the improvements Governor Cuomo is making to the NYS Parks, Thank you.

Nice trail with a good ascent and a bit of rock scrambling. Unfortunately it was also absurdly overcrowded with loud annoying hiking groups, it felt like we were still in the city, so much so that we decided to go off trail to get away, which was nice. A tip for hiking couples and groups-most of us come out here to get away from the noise of the city and enjoy the peace of nature, so keep your mouths shut or at least have the courtesy to use your inside voices. We want to hear the wind blow through the trees, not your constant blathering at full volume.

This trail is awesome! A bit challenging during the first mile or so but after that it's quite easy. The ruins are amazing!!!!

beautiful view at the top! The first white arrow you see up the white trail leads to a great vista. Don't miss that!

Great hike, there is a map provided at the beginning of the trail and markers along the way which make it much easier to navigate. Went on a Monday and it was pretty empty and great with our dog:)

We hiked the white trail, going over in the yellow then red and at last blue. This map doesn't tell you the colors but you can get a free map at the station where the trail starts. Took about 2,5-3 hrs to get around the 8-9 kilometers. The first bit is definitely steep but once you get up there, the views are fantastic!

Really cool old structure, took the opportunity to head up yellow trail and back down into cold spring on the white trail. Awesome views. Highly recommend, nice combination of easy hike and progressively got more difficult upon descent into gravel pit above cold spring parking area.

Ruins and views and streams, oh my.

A nice steep climb if you follow the easterly ascent, but good for some rewarding views of the Hudson near the summit.
