I agree with the previous reviewer in that the trails have major signs of overuse..erosion, short cuts and litter. Thankfully I did the trail in the early morning and didn't see many souls. Trail gives up a nice incline to get your heart rate going...with a nice payoff of views of the Hudson Valley from the top. Place is oozing with history as one can just try and imagine folks talking the defunct Railway to the top in the early 20th century. Keep in mind that the trailhead parking lot is closed until summer '18.

the sad part about this trail is its so beat from over use. shortcut paths off trail have become stream beds for erosion.. combined w hikers who have little consideration or respect for the outside and nature they are in... makes its new found interest a problem for the trail. last year we walked to the top amid people playing music off their cell phones and one walker flying his drone. was truly sad.
