Amazing view at the top. Hike up had some ups and downs, but nothing too strenuous. Trail is rocky and rooty, but again, not terrible. We went with our two kids (12 and 7) and they loved it.

Decent hike. Difficulty is more advanced beginner than moderate. The views were nice and the trail is not very crowded.

Beautiful forest trail leads up to a gorgeous view. It was raining today and cloud cover was magical. Good for all hiking levels, small rock scrambles but not difficult at all. We had the trail to ourselves for the most part

This trail starts from the back of the DEC parking lot off Platte Clove Rd. The trail is pretty well groomed. A map at the beginning tells you where Huckleberry Point is but signs at junction simply say Trail. Initially follow blue blazes, then follow the yellow blazed. Parts of the trail is muddy, other parts rocky and goes up and down. Saw some neat mushrooms. In the end it paid off with a beautiful panoramic view.
