For experienced hikers, this is a 5-6/10 for difficulty. For novice hikers, this is probably about a 8-9/10. We hiked in a group of 4- everybody was fit, but with different hiking experience (no experience to very experienced) and it took us about 5 hours to complete. Great views. Highly recommend the hike. Be careful when you get to the footpath portion and choose the correct path- if you take the path that seams like a bushwhack then turn around because you chose the wrong path (unless you want to do a bushwhack, are experienced hikers, and have good navigation skills). Also make sure to park in the correct parking lot.

Great views, but a lot of foot paths and definitely not a trail for the faint. Bring lots of water and enjoy the views when you see them!

We took our dog on this hike today. he's not much of a jumper so he had a couple issues. but we were able to help him around. this hike has some of the best views I've ever seen. it's completely worth it. I loved this hike!

One of the best hikes in the NYC area, and probably the state too. Yup, you gotta pay $10 to park. Started off from Lake Minnewaska nice and easy on a gravel road. Super pretty views of the lake. And then holy hell does it get rocky. Once you're on the actual ridge though things start getting prettier, and the hike much more fun (some minor light scrambling may be required). Jaw dropping views, it's just vista after vista from Millbrook Mountain to Gertrude's Nose. The view from the nose itself will bring you to tears. 10/10 would recommend
