This was a moderately easy hike to the top with excellent views of the countryside. Trial markers were well placed (though use of the color green may not be a great idea with the spring/summer colors in full bloom). You can keep an easy pace...More

Short hike to the top. 20-30 minutes. Upper third has some "steep" steps in stone ledges but you just need to take your time. It is worth it. If you cross the top and descend the far side it is really steep going down. Sorry...More

We were just there (after several recent snowstorms) and we wore snowshoes, but could have done the hike in bare boots. As long as you go several days after any snowfall other hikers will have packed the trail down for you. It's not a difficult...More

The view is worth the hike. The hike is steep in places but not very long and has a good trail. Make sure you bring your camera and give yourself plenty of time on the top.

This is a nice hike with spectacular views of the Schoharie Valley. Abrupt cliff edges at the top so better for mature children. Worth the trip!
