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.

Trail follows water crisscrossing several times before steep assent to marry up with South Taconic trail.
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
