My fave hike I’ve done on the east coast so far! Our mohonk lake hike was a total of 6 miles! The lemon squeeze was my favorite part. Definitely requires a bit of upper body strength and agility to get through this bit. Totally recommend for anyones next hiking adventure!

This review is for the trail starting from the gatehouse parking lot through fox path onto sky top road, past the mohonk mountain house to the labyrinth, through lemon squeeze up to sky top tower and then back out on sky top road. We arrived at 10am on a Saturday to a moderately filled parking lot. We didn’t know we had to buy passes online, so we pulled off to the side to get that settled. We were told the time slots didn’t matter. After purchasing, they checked our temperature before letting us in. The labyrinth and lemon squeeze was a lot of fun, not overly challenging but definitely a workout. I’m typically a little wary of heights but I was running on a lot of adrenaline and really enjoyed myself. It’s a crowded and popular hike; go on an off time if you can.

Hardest trail I've ever done but also the best. Rocky, scrambling, tight-tight squeeze. Not for anyone out of shape. Will definitely do again.

The hardest hike I've ever done. The warning signs do not warn you enough- this thing is NOT for novice or beginner hikers. Do not bring your kids or the elderly on this thing.

This is a lot of fun! One of the highlights of my summer was getting to try this out after a long day of hiking at Mohonk. It’s worth the extra fee.

Great trail, we went on a beautiful day and it wasn’t too crowded. I have gone on a weekend before and it was super crowded so I would recommend not doing this trail on weekends. I noticed a lot of people missed the crevice however. There is a section of the trail that will take up up a set of stairs to the sky tower but if you want to do the crevice don’t go up the stairs continue on the trail

Awesome hike, but not really kid friendly. Recommended for in shape hikers.

This was a very challenging hike. A good pair of hiking boots is a must as the rocks can be slippery and steady footing is necessary to maneuver safely. We started at the the very first entrance to the trail. Note that to get to the trail head, you have to walk about 1.5 miles on an easy path from the parking lot. There is very little elevation in the beginning giving you a few opportunities to bail out if you decide this isn’t the right hike for you. It took us 3.5 hours to complete and we went all the way to the “crevice” and just took a few breaks to take a drink. Make sure to leave enough time so not to run out of day light. The Crevice is not for people who are claustrophobic, as the ladders are narrow and you have to squeeze through an opening that you have to go through sideways. A headlamp is helpful because the Crevice is pretty dark even in the day light. There were plenty of red arrows guiding you in the right direction. However, once you come out of the Crevice make sure to go to your right and look for the red arrow leading you up towards the top of the vista. The rocks require you to do a lot of climbing and having upper body strength is a plus. It would have been helpful if there were markers telling us how much farther to the Sky Tower, especially since we ran out of day light and emerged from the Crevice in the dark. Overall, a technically challenging hike but the views from the vista are your reward at the end. Glad we did it but probably wouldn’t do it again.
