Ascend through a now-wooded area of former fields and stone walls to enjoy ridge views and reach the cascading Peters Kill (stream) in Minnewaska State Park Preserve.

a very nice hike . Rock climbing area is the best , definitely need climbing gears in some parts . views on the top are probably the best views I ever saw. very hard to find parking , the whole parking area was full , I had to park approximately 2 miles away from track .so try to get there a little early

This is a nice trail with varying terrain. There are just a few spots for views but still beautiful trail.
