Currently about 2 feet of snow on the nose trail. Hiked here through millbrook mountain from the west traps there was only a covering of snow everywhere else. But, once you hit the Gertrude’s nose trail it is rough if you’re not used to the snow. Still, beautiful views and an exhilarating hike although if not experienced I would say wait out the snow.

Perfect for walking/running with your pup or peaceful enough by yourself. There is several places with broken glass but overall perfect for what we were looking for.

Hiked a big loop around the lake (without seeing the lake very much). Snow was pretty deep. Mostly woodsy hike.

Spectacular views from the ridge of NY city, the Hudson River and the lake. Cactus growing at the top, deer running through the trees and turkey vultures flying at eye level over the cliffs.

My first hike ever. One of the days that changed my life, finding my love for the outdoors.

Nice lake in tarrytown to chill out in.

Love this park all year round! It’s an easy place to ski, bike and hike. Especially good when you may not have a lot of time. I’ve seen lots of wildlife here, fox, deer, and many birds.

This trail is not accessible to hikers during skiing season. Still giving 4 stars because it looks awesome and I will be back when the snow melts!

Nice easy loop around a lake but not really strenuous at all. Nice place to walk the dogs or go for a jog. To get your heart pumping try some of the other trails at Rockefeller.

Fun trail. Lots of variety in scenery. You go from fields, to forest like, to a swamp, back to forest then to cliffs overlooking the Sound. Took the kiddos and they loved it. The hilly part is fun to explore as it is the remnants of the Ice Age glaciers. Beautifully straight Tulip Tree, too. Take the map along with you and you won't get lost. I had my 13 year old navigating. No issues. You can go completely right around the swamp or straight past it, keeping it on your left, and head to the bluffs. Then you can also explore the hilly south side of the swamp and detour back to the parking area. The parking is the worst of it all. We had to wait for someone to return from the hike to get a spot. Only parking for six cars, but we squeezed in seven. I can't imagine trying to get a spot on the nice spring and summer days. It is one we'd like to explore in each season.

24 inches of snow made this a challenging hike but was fun and not to long to do. With a firetower at the top with some ok views I would recommend

Great views. Trail is pretty eroded in some parts from overuse, though. Should be rated as moderate.

Short but great hike

Great hike! Did it in the middle of February and it was quite icy so be careful! Other than that it was beautiful until it started raining halfway through!!

I would give this hike 5 stars if it wasn’t so busy. IT’S TOO CROWDED! (On Saturday morning we barely could find any parking in few miles radius) Views are amazing, but asian tourist groups blasting music trough speakers were ruining our experience. Dogs without leashes shouldn’t be allowed at this trail, but there there at least 3 dogs running freely. My advice would be DON’T GO THERE ON THE WEEKEND! (Unless you like crowds)

Its a nice place for trail running and has a pleasant view on top of the hill. The only thing that can be bothersome is noise of the traffic but that's fairly expected due to its location.

Went 2/24/18. Trail is wide; groomed for snow mobiles. Not icy.

Nice easy hike that goes to some really nice views

Very nice small hike. Awesome waterfall and old house foundations.

Nice hiking trails some extra paths through the woods. Beautiful beach. will definitely do it again

Very scenic. Good for a nice stroll so nothing serious. However, parking is limited and the trails are confusing.

Beautiful views. On one side, it’s amazing, calm, beach side walk, there’s walking trail as well across beach side, and on other side is hiking trail. Trail covers view of sunken meadow tidal marsh. Photos uploaded.

Flat easy scenic walk

Had fun with the family!!

Beautiful hike. easy hike around the lake. good traction is recommended in some part of the trail in winter.

Pretty trail leading from the nature trail, through a grassland with wildflowers and a salt marsh

Nice in the winter, only saw a few folks the whole day.

Rooty ,muddy lots of thorns. The trails are all broken up in different sections and should not take more than 45 minutes to run the whole thing. Some of the trails are across the street on Hylan Blvd. and Luten Ave. Be very watchful of cars they will not slow down at all.

Plenty of views of the lake with opportunity for some awesome pictures. Fairly easy going, and would recommend this!

This is same as Mountak Point Park Trail, no different.
