Completed this hike yesterday. My favorite hike in the low/mid Hudson Valley region! Beautiful and near as difficult as it is rated. For moderate to fast-paced hiker, easily done in fewer than 3 hours, even with enjoying views and taking photos.

trail is hard no doubt about that. I however do it once a year. Gertrude's nose is named after Gertrude Bruyn who along with being a relation to me was the first woman to receive a land grant.

There were points when this trail made me hate hiking, but afterwards it was all worth it! Not for beginners or the faint of heart! Take the red to yellow to red to yellow.
