We did this hike 2 weeks ago, it's pretty easy, there's a steep incline on the way in, but the road is wide and you can stop along the way. Be sure to look on your left as you're ascending from 9W, there's a trail that leads you down to a stream and waterfall. Nice little pit stop along the way. The houses are now mostly gone and in the spring/summer the greenery makes them hard to see. I definitely want to go back mid-late October. It's quiet, you're far enough away from the roads that you don't hear any traffic. Look out for snakes!

Wonderful trail for a first timer! I highly suggest to download the "Avenza" app on your phone and purchase the "northern Harriman bear mountain trails" map onto the app. It tells you GPS coordinates of where you're walking and saves your trip. The only tricky part of the trail is finding the next "trail marker" ... which can be spotted on trees... rocks...boulders...etc. i highly recommend this beautiful trail. The view from bald mountain was epic
