I cannot stress enough how much I loved this hike, it was spectacular! I would recommend going around the map counter clockwise, climbing to the Women’s Federation Monument on top of the cliffs, and then going back down the way you came along the Shore Trail (white). The Long Path trail is right next to the parkway and you can’t really see the river through the trees anyway. But the Shore Trail was amazing, and the view at the top of the cliffs was incredible. I will definitely be coming back, and recommending this hike to everyone I know!
