the kids and I loved it. hill was challenging for me but was great challenge

Short and sweet! Fun little climbs and differing terrain. Educational plaques throughout and pretty views of the creek and river. Easy enough for the kiddos however if you are not an active person, the couple of short climbs may be tough for you.

Great spot for a quick hike. Plenty of good safe parking. Bring the younger kids! Sit down next to the Hudson River for a break. Very Enjoyable, easy hike with a few short climbs to make it fun.

I loved all the details , the bridge and the great signing they have going on. A decent hike for a beginner and awesome views along the way. Highly recommend !

Great for children. Loved the views of the Hudson

Nice wide trails through lots of terrain types. Great for kids!

very nice trail, well marked. will definitely be back!

As someone who isn't very active and out of shape, there were definitely some hard areas to hike, but the majority of it is pretty easy. If I can hike the entire loop, anyone can.

This was an easy stroll through the woods that leads right to the river! The trail is marked so much, anyone can navigate. Not a lot of traffic which was nice on a spring day after work.

Beautiful little Hike.

Really great spring walk. Moderate to easy exercise. Great for a group of kids and adults. Loved the outlook of the Hudson River. Can be done under an hour with lots of time to stop and take pictures!!

Amazing trail :)

Pleasant, well marked trail that takes you down to the Hudson River with some hilly terrain. Good hike if you want to spend some time by yourself (without fear of falling off a cliff), but you will come across several other hikers. I went with my 11 year old for whom the hike was neither too easy nor too difficult.

This is a nice trail for dogs and to get a quick trail run in and it's really easy to find! It's really good for beginners and to just have a nice walk/run in the morning before your day starts or to finish off your day.

Quiet on a Friday morning in mid-August. Very peaceful. My dog and I navigated the trails without any problems. I'm glad I wore my Keen closed-toe water shoes—no slipping or sliding up-or-down. There are many downed hemlocks due to a nasty blight—so sad.

Very easy hike if you have kids or dog, otherwise very boring. I brought a camera, but didn't bother to take any photo.
