We hiked on a day with temps in the high 80’s, but it was nice in the woods. The trail is very nice and very well marked. Most of the way, it felt like a nice walk in the woods. I’d say it’s on the easier side of moderate. The only downside is the limited views on the summit, which is typical of the Catskills, but since we do a lot of hiking in the Adirondacks, it is definitely not the same rush when you get to the top. Bring bug spray for the black flies, but the bug spray worked well and they didn’t bother us much unless we stopped in the woods to rest. The little breeze on the top kept the bugs away and allowed us to enjoy lunch. We took about 4 hours round trip, plus 30 minutes on top.
