Nice trail. Well marked. Some scrambling. Lots of leaves that make it slippery

Average trail at best. Far too much of the route was boring and over used (for my liking). Also not a fan of walking roads nor hearing highway traffic. Great views by the castle but that is not enough to get this one over 2 stars.

lots of leaves on the ground already so it's hard to follow the trail sometimes. had to rely on the app a few time as we couldn't see blazes either. after you get to the very top you will hiking along the road and it's busy and noisy

This is my favorite to do with my puppy! We go every week. Once you get to the top and you reach the water it is absolutely beautiful. There is so many dogs swimming, it is the cutest thing to see. Overall, it is a very enjoyable hike, bring plenty of water. When I went this time the waterfall had no water flowing down it but usually there is & it is beautiful.

Nice trail with some rocky parts at the beginning, and an easy walk along the lake. Good for beginners

Lovely easy hike through the woods up to Ramapo Lake, which is very picturesque. The loop around the lake has lots of nice places to stop and enjoy the view. Nice any time of year. Parking lot fills up very quickly on weekends.

Hike the McEvoy trail to Ramapo Lake often. Easy hike through the woods following the stream up to the lake. We usually circle the entire lake, lovely views and a few huge rocks to sit on for a break. Have only hiked up to the castle ruins once- steep climb up but the ruins are worth seeing.

Nice moderate hike. Very well traveled and did not run into a bear! My friend was petrified she would see one.

Great views. We like it more going clock wise. At the castle we had a great picnic with Manhattan view.
