Solid trail, views are nice when you can see, but you never really get outside the tree line, so they're always through the trees. No real overlooks. Markings are pretty bad at a few crossroads, but overall were decent.

Nice hike but you never feel like you’re out in nature because of the noise. Make sure to bring water as there’s no sources along the way.

Great trail!! Enough up and down to make it challenging and interesting buy not too much so that it was painful.

Trail markers are horrible... Couldn’t do the loop

We took this trail on a hot day, so we were thankful as the trail runs mostly in the woods. Followed the red dot, hoped for a loop trail, but after walking for almost two hours we came to a fork in the road, where the red dot trail continued to go uphill, seemingly away from the river. That's where we turned back - the way downhill can be slow because of loose rocks on the path. Brings lots of water!

FOLLOW THE TRAIL! Not marked very well and tried following the dotted line trail which no longer exists. Got a bit lost. Great trail if you follow it though!

If you plan to do this trail in loop then beware of the path after the white with red dot marker. There is no marker for the path between the white with red dot marker and the blue marker so it's easily to get lost. The beginning of the white with red dot marker can be strenuous because it's rocky. I would recommend hiking boots for this trail. Overall it's a nice and worthy trail to hike.

Nice short loop that’s dog friendly. Solid climb to start then relatively flat loop with great views of the water. Very close to NYC. Trail was in good condition but not marked very well.

Enjoyable hike. Very nice views. Had to come back down the way I went up because there are no markers for the ‘4 mile’ loop on the other side of the peak. I think it was only malted for the longer hike.

The trail was nice with a cave, active little creek, and breathtaking views but it was so poorly marked! We followed the blue markers but got half a mile off the trail! And once we got up to the top, we couldn’t find the path to continue the loop. We had to go back where we came and got off the trail again following the markers. Then the markers were no where to be found. We decided to follow the map instead to find our way back to the trail. We went off the trail, into the thorny bushes and all..

There are many more trails up there than are laid out here but still pretty much bushwhacked from Jones to Dunderberg & Bald peaks for the BMBridge views before rejoining TT Blue. Not too hard to hike a beeline in an old growth forest. The dog flushed lots of deer
