An excellent hike if you're looking to spend a few hours. Not difficult from a terrain perspective; the challenge comes in properly pacing yourself and going with a group that will keep that pace. Other than that, I love this hike and will do it again for sure!

Fun hike with great views. Park in upper lot, bring snacks and water and you’re good to go.

Most Amazing hike I’ve done in the Hudson Valley yet!!!!!! It was certainly a long hike worth every single step!! ONLY complaint which we did read in other reviews and really should have listen was.. parking in the lower lot. Then you have to walk alllll the way up and than all the way down after an 8 mile hike to your car. The hike it’s self was breathtaking HIGHLY recommended!!! The views on the way to the top and simply Beautiful! We went about 2 weekends ago the foliage was incredible!!! We also took our pup and she absolutely loved it but might be hard for dogs that don’t like some rock climbing. Cannot wait to go back!!!!!

The actual hike was exactly what I was looking for. Moderately challenging with amazing views. The problem was it was PACKED! There had to be at least 10 groups of hikers who were hiking with 5 or more hikers. We had to allow hikers to pass us throughout the entire hike. Maybe it was because the fall foliage seemed to be peaking or because the weather was so nice. If this is usual I would not recommend this hike.
