Easy parking,nice walk.

Nice overnight spike camp experience

Short trail. A couple of the steeper hills can be challenging. Hiking trails are well marked, (as well as most obstructions) with many unmarked offshoots, but it’s a relatively small patch of land, so I wouldn’t worry about getting lost. Good for light hiking or running.

This hike has beautiful views and well-marked trails but beware of ice and mud on a January weekend when the temps are in the mid-40s and the snow has not completely melted.

Hiking boots and poles are helpful!

It’s nice to go in a counter-clockwise direction, going up the steep side first and coming down on the blue/red path that is more gently sloping.

Off-road parking was available directly opposite the trailhead. A few other hikers were on the trail, but it did not feel crowded.

This is the most difficult part of Devils Path. I did it from Mink Hollow and climbed Plateau and Sugarloaf. On 1/21 crampons (not just microspikes) we’re very useful

Pretty difficult because of all the ice but well worth the trek!

Great hike but very very icy on the Major Welch portion, be prepared if you come in the winter.

Really nice walk... it isn't a true boardwalk as it is all concrete. It is wide and should withstand any future storm. Great beach... pretty easy to get to from the city. Good for people watching. There isn't much else along this stretch...you have to west on 116th to find any decent eats. It is an easy 10 miles and a good way to get the steps in.

Very easy four and a half miles...give or take. There wasn't a lot of wildlife this go around. I'll have to go back later in the spring. With the government shutdown... the visitor's center was not open, which is always a shame. Children in Congress making decisions that have impacts that are far reaching. Regardless. It's only about an hour or so train ride from mid-town (A train). so you can leave at 9am and be on the trail before 11. It's close enough that after the hike, you can take the shuttle train to Rockaway and enjoy some beach time.

The trail was beautiful, the bald mountain section was incredibly difficult on the downswing. ( way too much ice ) I’d give it another week of the January thaw before attempting again. Besides the ice which is obvious for this time of the year, our group had a blast

A short sweet hike with a lot of bang for your buck. Beautiful views. Moderately steep the first half. Trail is packed snow and ice right now, needed spikes but not snowshoes.

Trail markings could have been better.

Trail is poorly marked. Park near the Basketball courts and follow signs to the exercise trail. Wooded and predominantly easy trail. Trails are marked but not clearly defined.

We parked on the side of the road and made our way up the dead end road past the farm house.

There was a clear snowmobile trail to the right that we passed and continued down the road.

Beautiful area with plenty to see. In summer it must be lovely!

Lovely mild January day with temperature above the freezing mark until you end up at top. Extremely windy and cold at top with now views. Trek was easy via the Haystack trail until the steep climb at end. Very difficult climb in snowshoes for me as my girlfriend switched out to spikes. Descent was difficult in some areas, so we both opted for short spikes and slid most of the way down. This was our first attempt at snowshoeing in the Adirondacks and not our last.

Did the falls to high point and back. Currently, microspikes are not needed, but did help.

For food hit up the Hoot Owl which is about 10minutes away. Stumbled upon it.. great food and atmosphere!

Great day and trail system. The steepness near the very top made snowshoeing a challenge. Great views on the overlook.
