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.

There is no trail here named spier mountain trail. It's called western ridge trail. All the trails here are well
marked. You will not get lost. This trail system is in the Moreau Lake State Park.

Very convenient location, beautiful views and outstanding hardwood forest. Many well marked trails allowing you to choose between an easy or harder experience.

Views of the Hudson River and valley are nice. Moderate hike, not hard as it is described here.

Loved the view! If you wanted it to be a longer route to the blue trail it is possible. Took my nephews that were 6 and 4 yrs old and they were able to do the blue trail, but would still advise watching them it does get rocky at one point of the trail.

Hard to find the trail head... Many different trails to follow... Blue trail leads to lookout. Harder trail, rocky and challenging at times. Good workout on a muggy day. Always worth the view.
