Gill Brook trail is one of my favourite in all of the ADKs. It's soft and scenic. The last 1.1 miles to Colvin feel like twice that, and I bonked my head on a fallen log. Trail between Colvin and Blake is very steep but nothing too sketchy. My total time & distance is from the farthest spot in the parkinglot, not the trailhead.
Great view from Colvin, no view from Blake.
