We arrived to LOJ with overcast skies and a light snow falling. In a group of three, I was the only one to use snowshoes. My friends did well with spikes. A well packed trail met us the entire way. Last mile it got steep. Only came across one area with a good amount of ice. The summit was covered in cloud with light snow continuing. No views today. It took about 2 hours to navigate up the last mile but only 25 to slide down. We had s good time.

Nice hike. Pretty constant ascend once you get going. Hard to parking though. I had to park on the side of the road. Summit has really nice expansive views of the surrounding area. For me the in and out was 5.3 miles

Fun outing - went with family and brought a picnic to have in the canoes

Pretty fun trail in the woods - easy to enjoy the sounds of songbirds and woodpeckers

Repurposed railway - it's now a completely flat grassy path that cuts through the woods. It's a decent walk, but gets boring since it's so flat and relatively straight

Similar to Thunder Rock in Allegheny - but with more moss and waaaaay less people. It's a very tranquil spot

Pretty easy hike, but be mindful of the terrain

Wonderful for a day trip with friends

Excellent in fall - great foliage

As easy or hard as you would like to make it. Follow the Red Markers for a slightly easier hike to the waterfalls and the Blue for a nice challenging one. We started on the Blue and finished on the Red. I cut it short due to rain coming but it was a nice hike and nice scenery along the way. Definitely one to do!

Really challenged, but you will be fully rewarded by great views on Hudson and other mountains!
Be ready to have some climbing during first mile of trail. Some points are very steep. The better way to get the best observation places is to move up, moving down can be really unsafe especially when snow and ice have covered rocks.
