Totally overgrown, trails in bad shape. Tons of ticks anytime of year. Poison ivy over the entire northeast section. Use caution.

This hike was great! We parked in the area by Scutt Road which is a little different from this trail map but it ended up working out perfectly. We went around to the lakes first and then went to the Catskill Mountain house site which ended up having much better views than we anticipated. From there we went to Boulder Rock, inspiration point, Layman monument, Bastion Falls and we finished up at the top of the falls. The most challenging part for us was going back up from Bastion to the upper falls (especially since this was at the end of our hike) but honestly the views at the top made the extra work more than worth it. You could leave the bastion falls part out and experience amazing views.

Also went up rock scramble and back the easy way. Not sure how easy it would be going down the rock scramble. I had a baby in the hiking backpack and was just a bit dangerous. Great views at top !

The fall colors where amazing. actually made it a 12 mile hike with a friend. So worth it.

This was a difficult trail, but the views were worth it. You would need to be in pretty good shape and have good knees to complete this. Also, trail shoes with good traction are needed. Lots of friendly dogs on this trail.

Definitely not a hike for novices and/or children. There are plenty of spots where, if you slip, it's game over. Dead serious. I've seen a number of people up there with their dogs. Not a good idea imo. I have hiked it in the dead of winter after a heavy snow. Getting into the gully wasn't bad. Getting out? Not so much. We were all utterly and completely exhausted by the time we made it back to the trail head.

Did this trail in May. The walk was beautiful. Stairs bring you down close to a waterfall, and then there’s a bridge to bring you to other side. The bridge was ‘closed’ but we carefully walked on and over which was totally worth it.

Looped the entire Hunters Pass, exhausted today (10.15.19) as a solo hike. Came out to around 15 1/4 miles. Started by going in Hunters Pass to site, follow yellow marker with arrow to Macomb. Herd path well defined. Felt like descent was gentle and then onwards and up. South Dix has a few false peaks, it just keeps going up. East Dix or Grace was a decent pitch down but steady, one of my favorite peaks of the day, very still winds and first sun of the day for me. Do everything in reverse and take the left to Hough. Right as Hough had me feeling tired it was over. Yellow marker on tree let's you know you've arrived. Didn't stay very long here as I wanted to spend a good 30 mins on Dix. Lengthy hike over but no issues following trail, was a little windy but tons of boulders to setup for a break. Had a beer, recharged phone at this point. Prepped for descent. I had second thoughts of doing hunters entire loop, it is very long and steep down. Beckhorn trail I would say is steep but is .75 miles shorter. Flattens out and seeing the site signs at Lillian was nice. Once I got back to Slide Lean To I knew it was easy, hustled back!! Start Time 655AM End Time 502PM 10 hours 7 mins, was moving about 8-8.5 of them

beautiful woodland setting on an Indian summer day, Be prepared for a mostly uphill climb and maybe some quads burning! Getting to the field at the top is a beautiful mowed area of lawn surrounded by the sights and sounds of the forest. Went on a Tuesday afternoon in October , only saw 3 other people on the path, lovely walk in the woods!!

More challenging than expected! With 25kg packs the scramble section was tough in parts but fine given nice weather. Would have been a bit concerned if it was wet. We needed lots of water so refilled half way at Lake Welch. Purified and boiled it - not sure whether that was necessary but am fine in any event. The part at the start near Suffern is a bit average as you can hear the traffic.

Nice little hike with great views.

Did the loop hiking by the ponds and then climbing the mountain from the south.. Highly recommend because right away you are awarded with views of the lake to the south! Once you reach the summit you can only see the northern section of the lake.. Absolutely amazing views.. descended the east side and was very gradual. Not much to look at all the way back to the parking lot.. overall great little hike.. 7.25 miles in 3 hours with 30 minutes on top.

Well maintained trail, easy to follow. Limited parking so recommend arriving early during peak season. Awesome 360 views from top of cascade. Summit of Porter is slightly mismarked on alltrails map.

A nice easy hike through aromatic pine woods. Wide trails with great resting benches and a fun bridge to nowhere. The elevation was enough to get some aerobic exercise but a nice change from some of the more challenging trails. Our dogs loved it and enjoyed the water from the occasional streams.

Stumbled upon this trail while out for a drive. A great trail especially in the fall. We did 3.9 miles and it was very easy to follow trail. The pond is very nice and does have some rock scrambles on the one side that for kids can be tricky, but 3 young ones managed. Majority of trail is level with some various ups and downs nothing at all difficult. Did on 10-15-19 and trees have great color. Would definitely come back.

A short, sweet trail. The loop took 35 minutes at a moderate pace. Some stretches will be very challenging for junior and senior hikers: steep, rocky, slippery with fallen leaves. And there are a few overgrown bits, so remember your tick repellent (mmm, just love that Skin-So-Soft "woodland-fresh fragrance")

The Calkins Brook trail is an easier way to Seward if you want to save Seymour for another day. From the cairn near Donaldson it is not a difficult climb to Seward. The trail out to Donaldson from the cairn is very short with one difficult rock to scale. From Donaldson to Emmons are big mud holes. The climbing part of the Calkins Brook trail was so covered in fallen leaves that it was sometimes difficult to find the trail.

Great hike. Fairly steep your first mile up but so worth the views. You’re about 3/4 of the way there once you hit the pond. Definitely don’t recommend for small kids but great to pack and lunch and enjoy the views.

This is my place of introspection. I come here often right after a therapy appointment or a routine check. I ride my bike from the 19th Ward here, which is about 6 miles. I love this place. The volunteer/paid caretakers do their job well. It is rare to find trash. A lot of people walking their dogs, joggers, or hikers like me. So much history! Fredrick Douglass and his two wives, and Susan B. Anthony and her family. It’s amazing how this place in the middle of a city is so quiet and serene. I bring close friends here and share with them the gift of introspection. Enjoy your hike, bike or jog!

Trail was rocky and muddy in areas, but that is what is to be expected at Devils Bathtub. That is part of the beauty of it, is that it’s natural and is an adventure, not a stroll down the sidewalk. It also appears that someone came in this summer and installed a new viewing platform at the start of the trail and they updated the boardwalk. It really needed it, the previous one was getting to a point of being unstable.

Short and steep. Great views from multiple look outs. Very well marked.

We followed the blue trail, then doubled back and took the red trail. Both trails are out and back. Decent walk for the dogs, nothing too exciting. Trail is mostly covered with small rocks so it can be a bit slippery going downhill. Red trail is a little overgrown but not bad. Ticks were out in force.

Really enjoyable trail! You get to cross over 2 creeks and there is a steep rock climb at the end before reaching the peak. If you continue back to 86 taking the loop then there is very muddy areas.
