First things first...make sure you approach the parking area from the northbound side of 9W. This was a nice hike to get your heart rate up a bit and although I did it on a foggy morning there are some great views. Great spot for birding as well...saw my first blackthroated blue warbler of the season. Trails can be confusing..seems as if the blue and yellow trail is all over the place.

Sweet little scramble to get to the top...payoff is open space with a view south and west. Would definitely do again

Great hike beautiful view map a little hard to follow

Awesome trail. beautiful waterfalls. great lookout points!

It was a great hike for Saturday afternoon! sharp inclines in the beginning to get the heart racing.

A nice Easter hike with my two boys- aged 1.5 and almost 4. Waterfall was amazing! Hiking above the waterfall the trail goes along a beautiful river/brook that feeds the waterfall. There were some steep, rocky, and slippery spots where I had to carry the baby and help my 4 year old— I put the baby in a hiking pack for the trip down since he was getting tired. I would definitely visit here again- especially in warmer weather. Seems like there are a few nice spots to cool off in hot weather.
We didn’t do the whole hike- turned around where the trail crosses the water mostly because it started to drizzle. We took almost 2 hours.

Nice hike not to hard some good views and an a firetower. Leave mountain and hit Hudson valley brewery 20 minutes away for some good beers and relax dogs are welcome

I did the orange trail to the teal and yellow trail and it immediately starts off with rock scrambling and a pretty steep climb. There are multiple beautiful views though. The snow made it a little slippery, but be sure to have a trail map on hand because there are quite a few trail intersections that made it confusing and easy to get lost.

It’s a nice moderate hike. Great views from the top. There are several trails within this hike. Easy to confuse the route even when following the signs, so it may require some navigation on your part. It’s great for novices and those who don’t want to drive too far up north. You can hear cars and see the road from some points of the hike, so that helps too

I love this trail. I've hiked it a handful of times and I still enjoy the vistas and lookouts. Moderate difficulty with a few points of extreme gradation. Takes about 3 hours to hike. Also significantly less traffic than on Anthony's Nose or Breakneck.

Good, short, moderate hike with a lot of rewarding views.

Did the trail covered in snow, it was lovely (as described). PLEASE have an understanding of the trail loop BEFORE arriving as the map at trailhead is sun-faded. Confusion can occur due to a few trail crossroads. I'm uploading a map pic. Highly recommend this trail!

Amazing views even on a foggy day.

I did the white then blue/yellow followed by the red. This should provide you the loop as shown on the map

We took the white trail (right side at entrance) to blue/yellow to red and I found this more rewarding as the views got better and better along the way. Minor scrambling at the end, but nothing my dog couldn't handle.

Gorgeous views all around. I would say besides some minor scrambling this hike is not hard at all. The way back is a lot of downhill

This is an easy hike and great trail to take dogs. 8.1 miles but nothing crazy challenging.

Incredible Hike. You cannot go wrong in the Hudson Valley. Check out my full write up with pictures and things to look out for.

Pretty quick and easy. Took white up and back to avoid too much rock scrambling. Great views

Great views and hike. For the experienced hiker start the loop on left and circle back with the white trail. For those not up for the scrambling just follow the white trail on the right up to storm king mountain for the Hudson view and head back on the same trail.

This was a fun trail — followed orange blaze up, a bit steep the the beginning with a bit of rock scrambling in a couple places. Areas were carpeted In leaves and the end was especially beautiful because it looked like fall. A bit of a gradual downhill for the most part at the end and then a short steep hike up to the road/parking lot. Not sure how tires and some metal machinery or appliances for stranded there right toward the end. Bed of leaves meant I had to pay extra attention to jagged rocks for foot placement.

Fantastic. Great climb. Some mild scrambling. Stunning foliage in the fall. Perfect view of the Hudson from the top. Sweaty climb to an easy stroll. Totally worth it.

This is a beautiful hike. Lots of view points and just gorgeous with the fall foliage. Get there early! The parking lot was half full when I arrived around 8:30 am and by noon when I left there was no place to park and people were parking down 9w. I went the red markers to blue to blue/yellow and then looped back on the white markers.

Amazing fall colors. Cannot imagine a better hike in the fall. Very accessible.

Everything you want in a mtn hike... views the whole way.. you will def work for it though... super fun in the oc

I found the trail to be challenging with lots of rocky terrain. This was my first hike ever, but it was manageable. A previous commenter was very helpful in noting the simple directions of following the orange markers to ascend, continue to blue/yellow and then descend following white markers. The views were fantastic! great hike!

Hiked with 5 kids! Very challenging but rewarding. Beware of some rock climbing/sliding involved but mostly moderate.

Definitely would not classify this as a Hard hike. Views are extremely rewarding. IMO, better than breakneck which is across the river.
