Blazes aren’t super helpful, definitely need to keep a paper or offline map!

Great moderate/easy hike. Rocky at times so be aware if you’re bringing kids/pets. Beautiful view of lake at top. A lot of nice surprises on the way.

Great hike with great views! As others mentioned, coming back turned out to be little challenging. The parking lot is small and fully packed on Sunday morning by 9am. Most people park their cars along the roads (unlimited) . There's no cell phone signal on the trail, so you need offline map. The only complaint is on our way back, at one point, the orange trail was not marked well and we got lost for sometime. Other than that it was a great hike!

Good trail except for one part that was very difficult going down but would have been easier going up. I would recommend doing the red trail on the way back to the car instead of first since so you go up the steep part not down.

It turned pretty stressful in the end when you taking the blue trail. Definitely not for the beginners. If you want it to be for the beginners take red trail both ways. I like it in general, my wife didn’t lol.

I went thru the entire trail, but toward the 2.5 mile mark or so it seems like it merges with a much steeper trail. The inclines and declines were much steeper than intially expected, so just have to be careful. If you want an easier trail, just turn back halfway and walk the same path back to beginning.

One of my favorite local hikes! Gorgeous trail with a fun variety - meadows, pine forest, rock scrambles, and a gorgeous lake. We got here at 7:30am and got one of the last spots. Only a handful of others on the trail at that time. By the time we finished the loop at 11:30, the trail was packed, a group every 15ft or so. Will definitely be doing this one again!

Solid day hike with optional lake excursion and nice views on the return (going counterclockwise). It was a good mix of different rocky trails. Bridges are out on the white (as you approach the yellow trail) but manageable if you don't mind a rocky stream crossing.

Nice Hike and well shaded. Good for beginners. I would make sure you have comfortable shoes and or hiking boots as there are plenty of larger rocks to walk over and can take a toll on your feet. Would hike again.

I loved this hike today! The trail was pretty well marked.. we went counter clockwise and followed red all the way to the lake. Really lovely. On the way back we went yellow-blue-white-red.. The route is pretty intuitive however there is an extremely steep section coming down on the blue section. At times, it felt pretty sketchy so just be aware I wouldn’t recommend that part for kids or pets. Go slow and have good hiking boots! It’s pretty rocky the whole way. All in all it was lovely. Saw some wildlife, wildflowers and could see the NYC skyline at the top of Diamond mountain.
