Schunemunk Mtn is always great. Less traffic from this trailhead. Parked at Evans Dr & Route 32. Walked along Rt 32 towards the trestle. Just after the trestle, turn left into that private driveway. The trailhead is immediately on your left. Made a loop to the Megaliths and Western Ridge. Barton Swamp in between ridges was pretty flooded.

This is a great hike if you a) want something challenging, b) can actually find the trailhead, and c) don't mind some bugs. This little gem of a trail is probably second only to Breakneck when it comes to difficulty level because there is some very steep terrain! You will have to park on State Hwy 32 since there is no parking, and you will find the trailhead tucked off a private driveway/lane just under the rail bridge. Took me a frustrating amount of time to find it so hopefully others can be spared that headache. Other than that, it was a very satisfying hike! I went on a Friday in August and didn't run into one other person, so if you like being one with nature, it doesn't get any better than this!

Nice hike. Pretty constant ascend once you get going. Hard to parking though. I had to park on the side of the road. Summit has really nice expansive views of the surrounding area. For me the in and out was 5.3 miles

This is my favorite trail of all time. I have had some difficulty finding parking but there are several options around that are available but simply not ideal.

Good hike to a 360 view of unobstructed rolling mountains and hills . Continue on Turquoise path for a nice rugged woods,stream, and hills experience.We pass the end of AllTrails marker and continue Turquoise markers . This hike is longer than 5.2 in and out. Had my Garmin watch on to indicate our travel. I definitely recommend this path for all who are in good health.

Quite a Challenging hike. Mostly uphill and strenuous. There are some difficult narrow rock scrambles. Gorgeous views

Start under the railroad tracks, follow them until you can turn left, follow teal markers.
