If you're looking for stellar views, skip this trail. However, if you just want to get out into the woods and do a longer hike, this is for you. Can't believe this is rated as hard. I did the western ridge trail (yellow markers-follows the western ridge along the Hudson River) and it's so easy. No rock scrambles and barely any ascent from the trailhead. Past one guy like 3 miles in that was walking his mountain bike; tells you how easy it is to climb to the top. This is an all ages trail for sure. Retirees can easily handle this one as well as small children and doggies. If you've done Hadley Mountain nearby or Sleeping Beauty, you'll laugh at how easy this trail is. Decently marked but mostly you're just trying to follow the worn path.

We only did part of this trail and didn't make it to Spier Falls.

we followed the yellow trail the entire way and we came out on the road about 3 miles down from where we parked. we never made it to the "peak" if there was one. it was a very long hike with no reward of a view. we did pass a couple overlooks of the river and dam on the way up, but over all very disappointing

Very nice hike, well marked trails. Lots of mosquitoes when I was there last Sunday. Please carry some repellent.
