This trail is one of my favorites. Challenging but fun! Best part is coming down and you pick up the pace and can run it. Steep inclines for a majority of the hike make it challenging. Easy to follow and navigate and clearly marked. Walking through the woods is kind of magical in its own way. If you are hiking it in winter you most definitely need traction.

What a great winter hike! We did this on a beautiful February day and got great views through the trees for the last mile (plus a few vistas near the summit). Pretty quick hike- we got down in around 4 hours with a long lunch break and slow/moderate pace. Not many people around in the winter. Parking (on Peck Rd) easy to find and spacious. *You absolutely need traction if attempting this in the winter.* A couple people we saw were trying without, and it did not look pleasant. Most of the trail is a solid slab of ice covered with a little snow. But with spikes- great hike! Would love to do it again in the summer and stay in the lean-to.

This was a nice easygoing hike down in the Catskills. I really enjoyed the views of the Blackhead Range as we were hiking up to the summit. There’s a part of the trail where the tree roots are all over the trail. There was 3 good lookouts close to the summit.

20/39 and the prettiest so far. A really nice walk through the woods. Great to do alone to find some peace of mind. Walking through the woodland floor was wonderful. A little rain early on didn't spoil a thing. 15 newts on the way up and 3 snakes on the trail right after the summit. Done in 2:59.21

Great trail. Currently very wet and muddy. Making for treacherous footing. Prepare accordingly.

Well marked peaceful trail. Good challenge through out. So quiet you can literally here the trees creaking in the wind. Would do it again and recommend
