Great, easy hike. We went when it was misty so the whole trail looked pretty magical but unfortunately didn't get any views to the top. We went up the blue, detoured toward Boulder Rock and then made our way back down the red. It was a little muddy and slippery at a couple of spots but that was to be expected due to the weather. Overall would recommend the hike for a an easier to moderate day hike.

Amazing trail, rather easy, very pleasant, gorgeous views and perfect for dogs. Only a few muddy spots this week end. We took a small detour to go check out boulder rock which added just under 2 miles to the originally planned loop but it was completely worth it! And at the end of the loop we checked out the kaaterskills fall overlook platform. I would strongly recommend it. Overall a very satisfying and relaxing hike.

Great to do with dogs - watch for a couple of drop offs at the trail edge near boulder rock. Hikes quickly, with moderate effort. Gorgeous, gorgeous view from boulder rock.

Great hike to do with dogs. Nice views along the way. Boulder Rock is a great spot for lunch before heading back. Trailhead is across the road from the parking lot even though it's not noted on the trail sign.

I agree that this is moderate- with not much flat ground (lots of roots & rocks) and some incline, it wasn't that easy for me but we completed it- a couple inexperienced hikers and 2 dogs! The hike wasn't named the same as on this app- it was the Blue Trail (or Escarpment on the map.) It took us 3.5 hours with lots of stops for pics. BEAUTIFUL lookouts!!

Great hike and really good views. Boulder rock view is perfect. Good spot for lunch. Trail markers are well laid out for this trail, however finding other trail heads sometimes a bit confusing.

Wonderful hike.. Just a few caveats. We weren't sure where the trailhead was:,it is just across the street from the parking lot. We had no trouble finding our way but not sure whether the 4.4 mile loop included Boulder Rock. Things are very well marked but was uncertain which pieces of the trail would lead back to the parking lot. Since I have 2 hip Replacements, I gauge what I can do!
