  • We spent the Labor Day weekend 2016 in the Catskills and this was our first stop,great hiking place,beautiful scenery,we'll be back in the future!  more »
  • Always humbling, the trails go on forever and you never get tired. Wild life snounds, challenging rock scrabble and views for miles. You can run for miles in the cool shade all summer.  more »

  • Great place to hike and awesome place to rock climb. I would definitely get a year long member ship. Its 90 and if you get a second one at the same time its 70. Basically if you go more then 4 times it pays for it self.
  • Great Experience. If you are doing the hikes you will need to park at the entry gate which is usually 26 dollars on weekends and 21 dollars on weekdays. Parking lot fills up quick during weekends and Holidays. Make sure to do the labyrinth and lemon squeeze!
  • Absolutely beautiful scenery and I love going out there. The walking and hiking trails are amazing! The people at the Gatehouse are rude and very stuck up so get ready to deal with that but once you've paid (because you have to pay $21/person to hike) it's great!
  • This place is amazing!! I went just to go hiking the other day, it had beautiful views of the lake and mountain house. There are different trails you can take up the mountain depending on the difficulty level you would like. My only complaint is that they used to have a shuttle from the parking lot to the mountain house which they recently removed. Now you have to walk a mile and a half to the mountain house which is tiring at the end of the day after a hike to get back to your car. Also don't forget to bring cash it's $26 a person and $21 for kids. I wish it wasn't as pricey. You get everything inclusive if you stay at the mountain house that's around $500 to $700 a night.
  • Great climbing. Trad with some anchor stations for top roping. Lots of multi pitches. Lots of bouldering also. An hour and half from the city.
