This was a good hike. We enjoyed seeing lots of different bugs. There are a few good views.

A few muddy spots. Buggy throughout the trail. Well marked trail. Went to the waterfall on purple trail very narrow. Over all great hike for the family.

Loved it. A bit harder to walk than I thought. Well marked, but some steep ups and downs. But I’m not in the best shape! Well worth going.

If you want exercise in stability it’s a good trail. Very technical. Rocky, roots, trees down. Working up and downhill. Loved the workout didn’t love the ride.

This trail has a nice mix of flat and incline spots. The trail is dynamic and there is a great lookout over the Hudson River.

Great variety of trails, great views of the Hudson River north and south on the Red Trail. Louisa Pond is spectacular! very enjoyable and not overly strenuous. Everyone polite and socially distancing!

I decided to try some of the other trails in the park today. They were beautiful. Ups & downs, nothing strenuous, nonetheless beautiful. There are rocks and roots throughout the trails(I do not mind). A lot of blowdown, most cleared up.

This was an easy to follow trail with a well maintained track. The trail head was easy to find with ample parking and maps at the start. Nice views of a lovely lake, recommended for a good walk, not really hard at any point although we were about to get a bit of a sweat on.

The trails are meandering and rolling. A very pleasant nature hike with lots of shade. The forest is thin enough that you shouldn’t get any wildlife surprises. We saw several deer.

Trails are well marked. The view from the Hudson River Overlook is wonderful. The path is very rocky or has tree roots so watch your step! The lake is half swap (overgrowth) and 1/3 lake and 1/3 lily pads. The bugs were not too bad but definitely had bug spray on as the buzzing was all around. Nice place to hike.

This is the red and blue trail and well marked, the red trail was nice with a small view of the river but lots of bugs around the lake on the blue, would be very nice in the fall. I added to it by walking up the white trail

Hands down one of my favorite trails. I like to hike from the lower lot to the upper lot and around the lake. I can get a 9 mile day hike out of it. Parking is generous and easy to locate, markers are well placed, trails are maintained and easy to navigate, wildlife is plentiful. What more could one ask for.

This has a few different trails. Most are easy strolls but still beautiful. There is only one spot for a view, but being outdoors is still beautiful by itself.

Nice views. Great for a quick hike just outside Kingston

Completely snow covered, which is probably why I was the only on the trail. Beyond peaceful and beautiful.

A great uphill hike from the bottom lot, or a nice walk around the lake from the upper lot. This is my go-to for hiking when I only want to be out for a couple hours.

This trail was beautiful around sunset. Definitely a fun shorter trail that's a little rocky but very do-able for the amateur hiker. Worth checking out!
