Beautiful, varied trail with great views all around. Gorgeous hiking over rocks on top ridge with small scrabbly growth. Wear hiking shoes, slippery leaves! Planned to park on Taylor but signs said not to, so parked on overkill road. Had a bt of trouble finding way back, would have been useful to have good map on line or in hand.

Was a very rewarding hike in the 15 degree windchill. The trail was marked amazingly well. If you go this time of year it was pretty leafy and slippery. Overall a great day with amazing views of the Catskills and I think the Adirondacks also.

Pretty easy except the fact you need to cross the creek and get ready to be wet if your sneaker isn’t waterproof.

Apparently this town doesn't want hikers in it but keeps the trail open anyway. If you don't park in the parking lot, you get a ticket. If you try to get to the loop, there's a chance you'll get a summons for crossing the railroad tracks. Once you're on the mountain there's a fair number of rattle snakes to scare your wife. Kidding aside, parts of this were beautiful. I could do without the townies yelling at us for parking on their street though. Perhaps they didn't think the town does it on purpose to collect a few bucks from hikers? Won't be returning as this was just a back up plan to Harriman being too crowded.

Nice trail wasn’t particularly challenging but there was a fairly incline start to the trail. If you bring children keep an eye on them as you have to cross an active railroad to get to the other side of the trail. As far as the views from the top you have a decent picture of the Catskills from a distance.

Really nice view from top. Steep ascent trail. This trail requires you to walk on an approach real to the ascent trail.

Great little trail. A bit muddy but really fun. Check out the megalites if you head up here.

This hike is rated "difficult" in the standards of people who don't get their lazy butts out of their house, but I found it more of a "moderate" challenge. After 2.5 miles into this trail, you will encounter a vista with unhindered views of the Hudson River and Storm King Mountain. This trail is also not heavily trafficked, so if you enjoy solitude and want the vista all to yourself, go for it ;) The start of the Dark Hollow (black marker) trail is a tiny bit tricky to find, but if you use your AllTrails GPS app and brain focus, you will find it.

I recommend long pants like others on here. Was difficult but some nice views. the view at the end of the trail (marked on map) isn't as good as some of the others. I bet it will look better once the leaves have fallen. Had I known prior to coming here, I would've just skipped that and just done the loop.

went counterclockwise on the loop. this trail is marked difficult and actually is difficult. if you don't mind steps, scramble, and elevation you may love this trail. the giant monolith boulders are amazing...

Lovely hike! You need to walk through some tall grass in the beginning. But the rest is decently marked. Saw some different types of snake but they were harmless. Great views!

What a great hike. I usually wear shorts but read the reviews. I’m glad I wore pants today. Bring lots of water. Not great views but worth it.

Great trail like many others have said. Lots of variety, moderate to difficult with long steady climbs and some minor scrambles.. Definitely a long pants situation, or do a good tick check. Watch the blazes carefully — I had to backtrack some wrong turns. Megaliths are nice..

Forgot to stop recording when we got in the car. It’s 6 miles. You should hike this...wear pants - everyone will be happy you did.

Super fun trail so close to the city! We did a slightly longer version of this following the “Hike the Hudson Valley” website guide, which I recommend. Def a long pants hike, especially as you walk through an open meadow of tall grass that’s perfect for ticks. Great, moderately hard uphill, super varied terrain, good mix of shade and exposed areas, and the awesome view at the megaliths makes this an A+ hike. Will be back.
