Horrible markings. I do not know how I would have gotten out without this app. Seriously almost had a panic attack trying to find my way out.

MicroSpikes are a must right now as the thaw has caused some serious icing over the trail!

Nice trails not difficult, plenty of deer.

The ridge walk is the best part if the trail. I think probably the best way to hike this is to park a vehicle at one end or the other. To hike this as a loop may make it a bit boring.
There are quite a few wet spots on the way up, very wet spots when I hiked it.
Found sign of deer, coyote, porcupine and what looked like possibly a fisher.

First, there is NO LEGAL PARKING November through April. Google results say to avoid the snowplow turnaround and park on the right side of the street which is PRIVATE PROPERTY. There is also a no trespassing sign on the PUBLIC street. There is a shack a mile in at the intersection with a very large and scary “PRIVATE PROPERTY: THIS IS NOT A GUN FREE ZONE.”

Would not recommend trying this without contacting the state about what is marked state land, and what will get you shot on sight.

was good to walk, with a dog! there was a good bit of mud and ice but ok. I bet its prettier in the summer!

Hiked on 3/16/2019. Majority of the trail was fairly easy to moderate until the last mile or so which accounts for around 30% of the elevation. Makes for a fun final push :) last half mile requires some ducking and dancing around small pines. When you think you’re at the top go about 100 feet further for the “Tabletop mtn” sign and a pretty good view. Did run into a section of the trail that was tore up due to post holers with no snow shoes (not even carrying). Took us just over 5 hours with minimal breaks

One of the most challenging hikes in the Adirondack High Peaks, with high winds often magnifying the exposed nature of the twin summits (Little Haystack & Haystack itself), both of which are completely above tree line. The difficulty was compounded this Winter by the extraordinary amount snow on all the trails approaching the summit. Nevertheless, with proper preparation and regiment (in Winter, crampons are definitely required to handle the ice covered rocks on the summit) climbing this peak is worth the effort. The views from the summit are among the best to be found anywhere in the Adirondacks.

Microspikes the whole way. Could have used poles the last mile. Soft snow mid way up, slick ice last third. Lots of melt happened in the the 4 hours we were on trail.

Completed on 3.17.19. Still plenty of snow, well packed on the trail. Took Wittenberg Trail (red) to the summit and Curtis-Ormsbee (blue/yellow) detour down. Spikes a must, snowshoes would have been helpful on the blue trail. Substantial steady climb, good lookouts on the red trail.

Wonderful waterfalls. Highly recommend follow the South and North Rim Trail .i love it .

The trail is short, the waterfalls is amazing . Should bring SPIKES. I’m gonna back on summer .

I live directly across the canal from the trail. it's convenient and picturesque and my dog loves it

grounds are nice but found ticks on clothes when got home. stay on the paved trails

Nice easy hike. The Hudson river view is beautiful. The trail is not so very well marked.

Very fun NYC walk. Keep in mind that it can close during snowy/icy conditions.
Extra beautiful in the spring when flowers/trees are blooming.

Beautiful hike. It goes up and down a bit. We went with 4 kids and they loved it. It’s not exactly as easy as I expected. The first section is a bit steep and there was quite a bit of ice there today. The lakes are beautiful and totally worth the hike.

Fun trail! You are rewarded relatively quickly into the hike with views from Giants Ledge, and Panther mountain is really nice too.

I did this hike on March 17th without crampons (this was an accident, but we were already there and drove 3 hours) and that was a very bad idea. I fell many times and got pretty banged up. There is a lot of ice that has a thin layer of snow, so you don’t realize it until it’s a little too late.

Great hike, but wouldn’t recommend without crampons in the winter.

Short pretty hike. Great views to Rockland Lake and the river. I recommend continuing on the green trail mile to the next vista point.

We hiked this loop in the counter-clockwise direction which made for a very steep ascent to Nippletop. Absolutely no ice. Deep snow made snow shoes a necessity, snowpack seemed to be 5 to 6 feet, so we were pushing our way through branches. With low clouds and snow we didn’t get a great view, but it would be spectacular on a clear day.

Enjoyable hike, well marked trail, dog friendly, packed snow good for snowshoes or spikes. Gentle incline with a wide open summit and 360 views.

Dog-friendly, well marked. Snow was packed down March 17 2019 so we went up in our boots and spikes. A pretty leisurely hike overall with beautiful scenery and a nice view of Coney Mtn at the summit! I recommend starting with this one if you’re doing the triad.

Snow was packed down but I would recommend snow shoes or spikes to prevent post holes there were quite a few
An easy enough climb nothing terribly technical or steep, the views were top notch
Looking forward to doing cat and Thomas together in the summer

We did it today and it was beautiful it took us around 4 hours to reach the summit and get back
It was very difficult to pass the waterfalls and a bit dangerous

Nice easy and mostly flat walk along the canal.
