The trail is a service road so it's an easy walk. Perfect for my 6yr old and I. There were a few picnic tables at the beginning of the service road. Just to note, Google maps sent me to the wrong side of the river. You will want the Scoby Hill Rd in Erie county not Cattaraugus county. There are signs on the main road.

Nice Hike with some pretty decent elevation

It was such a nice trip! We made 10.5 km for 2,5 hours . I was there 3rd time but never took a full trail before. For my friend who is not really into hiking it was so difficult, he told me he'll never go to the mountains again :))) But for me it was fun. Amazing view of Hudson River and mountains, virgin nature and incredible feelings after you made it.

The black on white trail was good. it would of been nice if the markers were a littler closer. Overall, it was great

Absolutely fantastic hike! Great trail. HUGE summit with tremendous views! Not a high peak officially but its views of the surrounding high peaks are as good as any high peak I’ve done. This peak rivals the views and feel of cascade in my opinion. The hiking path is very well marked. It starts of very gradual with some steep sections toward the summit. There are a few false summits/ open areas toward the top that tease what you will actually see at the summit. There are also many wood planks/bridges on this hike and I always enjoy those. There are three areas to fill your water if needed but they are all toward the start of the trail. The summit is bald and the fire tower views are incredible. Plenty of space in the summit to enjoy time with your group or by yourself. Lot of reward for this hike!

Things to know:

There is some parking along the side of the road and a small parking lot across the road that will hold about eight cars

There is a diner about maybe 2 miles from the trailhead if you need somewhere to eat and also another café at a golf course that’s even closer by. Of course the town of Keene only few miles away and there are plenty of options there as well.

I hiked this trail on a Friday and there were already a dozen cars at the trailhead by 10 o’clock in the morning. So I’m sure on the weekends this would be a very popular/busy hike

NOTE: the trailhead sign states this trail is 2.6 miles to the summit with an even 2000 foot elevation gain which contradicts what AllTrails has listed (2.5 miles 1574 elevation gain)

its a nice hike... good views along most of the trail. ... however with fall foliage in peak this hike would be AMAZING like many others in the area.

This hike is awesome! Great views, three peaks, vastly different forest ecosystems, but also closer to 10 miles and at times its very easy to lose the trail. Make sure you have your trail map downloaded because cell service is spotty and come prepared to hike at least 10 miles. We got surprised by the way extra three miles, but it was totally worth it.

The scenery itself was amazing!!!! However, a narrow trail combined with way too many people made this a hike that was just not enjoyable.

Awesome view and tower, can check this one off the list!!

Went straight up to the summit of the mountain and then back down around the pond. Recommend that loop by far!
