Do not forget about spikes for shoes during the winter.
A lot of ice is hidden under the snow.

This was a fairly hard hike. Starts out really easy and rocky/rooty. Changes to a steep ascent up rocks to the "notch." View was great! We had our dogs with us, mine being an XL Great Pyrenees who needed an assist only once. She is built for this kind of terrain. Remember to wear proper hiking boots, also bring plenty of water and snacks as this is a difficult hike, especially if you continue on on the connecting trails at the notch! Overall great hike, but I do not recommend this for any beginners. I hike in the Catskills a lot and I found this to be pretty difficult. Also, if you have bad knees be sure to tape them up for support or wear braces for this one.
