Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I loved this hike. I absolutely recommend it. But when I say "steep", I mean that the moderate rated-trails will feel more intense than that for the first 1/3 for an average day-hike person. Take your time, go slow, bring water - totally worth it.

We were there on Halloween and the trees were magnificent! I think they would have been even more spectacular a week earlier.

This is a very hard hike but worth every minute of it. It’s challenging but awesome. The views are great too.

This hike is not particularly long, but it is quite steep, so be prepared. There's no need for technical equipment, but I was happy to have on sturdier shoes than just sneakers. The view from the top is wide and beautiful. Many go on to the fire tower, but we kept our walk short. For a great recap of this hike with tons of info, go to hikethehudsonvalley.com.

Climbed quite a few mountains in my life but this one is not for out of practice hikers. The steps made it worse because it had rained earlier and made entire mountain a mess, and paths are narrow and rocky in areas so you feel rushed by other hikers and yes runners. its a historical location and was probably a sight in it’s hay day, but its all young tree growth
all the same wherever you look. Which made it harder at the top to hang on, view at the top was good, no place to go relieve yourself either.

It is a must do. The view is breath taking. You may see an eagle too. Bring a sandwich and have lunch at the top
