Very easy trail. I ended up going on the weekend and it was ~$30/person to go hike! But it was worth it since I rarely go up to these parts. There are a couple trails in this area, so it's hard to tell where you are some times. But all trials either lead to the top where that tower is or the bottom, where the lake is. Basically the short cuts are difficult, and straight up the mountain, but you can take the easy long way. You could probably take a motorized wheelchair up those easy paths if it had some tread. I would only go here if you had family from out of town. There are bathrooms, and a hotel and benches, so everyone can participate. If it were just me on a regular weekend, I wouldn't spend that kind of money.

Very easy, leisurely stroll suitable for all levels. Amazing views in all directions, including the skytop cliff, (which, if you get a chance, definitely go check out!!), the Catskills and the Gunks, as well as hints at the ADKs in the background. Views of the old hotel are also stellar. Mohonk is truly a hiker/climber's paradise.
