Note: This trail is on the Goshen Boy Scout Reservation. Summary: I started at the Camp PMI parking lot and walked over the wooden bridge toward Viewing Rock, and then headed further on to Jump Rock, and returned. The total distance on the GPS was 6.56 miles. The trail is a little rocky and steep in a few places, and as previously mentioned it was overgrown at the last half mile near Jump Rock. Otherwise the trail was clear and marked well. One note of caution, there is another trail leading south off of Jump Rock. Do not take that trail if heading back to Viewing Rock and the Boy Scout Camp, take the westbound trail. Since neither the westbound trail nor the southbound trail are marked at the top it can be confusing. I learned from experience and ended up adding 1.1 miles to my hike.

Hike was good. From lake up to viewing rock then on about 1 1/2 miles on up to Jump Rock. About 3/4 mile of the trail was overgrown. Path was visible but bushes were waist high on both sides. I walked with my hands up and the bushes rubbing my legs and hips for 20 minutes. Views were fantastic from both locations. Well worth the work.
