Amazing. Strenuous.

Close to NYC, a bit challenging, steep, windy rock face, great "pride" view at the first main view point. Easy hike to do on the way back down towards NYC, pit-stop hike.

Great trial! And very good cardio

This trail marker sequence you need to follow is: red, white, yellow, blue, white, yellow. Don't miss the blue turnoff! If you want a longer version, skip the blue turnoff and stay on yellow, veering left onto white at the intersection of yellow and white. This takes you over to Bald HIll and Lambs Hill. The white eventually meets back up where you would connect from blue to white if you were to stay on the original loop. The longer option gives you around 12 miles.

It's a great hike with some great views of Beacon. However, it's hard to find a parking spot. Other than that it's a great hike. I highly recommend going to the fire tower.

Came from the Allentown Pa. Well worth the 2 hour drive. Definitely had a good workout with this hike. We'll be back to check out more of the trails.
