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.

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

There's some small cliffs off the side of the trail that offer some awesome fall veiws.

Nice smooth day hike. Rated harder than actually is, but the views on a clear day don't disappoint.
