Beautiful hike. I recommend starting on the cedar creek trail to the top. Dense forest. Crisscrossing over the creek. Some steep sections to challenge you. Beautiful view at sunset rock.

Nice out and back w different options to ascend. I took the blue trail up (Cedar Creek) and the white and red trails down. Good choice - steep grades up, gentle declines. A bit rocky in spots and slippery in the rain but fairly graded as moderate. Didn’t get a view due to the fog but expect it’s a very panoramic one. 2 hrs round trip incl an extra 1.2 miles on descent through campground. 4.9 miles total

Nice hike up along a stream, crisscrossing it along the way. Then a straight shot to the rock. Only 5.5 hours to sunset! Nice view.

Pretty view at the top. One section had a steep climb, but not super long. Nice walk along creek side.

South Taconic is wide flat fire road all downhill from intersection

Me and my wife enjoyed the hike. A very constant incline until you get to top.

Great hike. Lots of stream crossings but easy. Scramble up to meet SOuth T trail then nice walk to the view. Spectacular! Don't forget to take a left at the fenced in pipe to get back to Bish Bash falls parking lot. 11 year old thought the first mike was magical- we kept looking for gnomes
