Hiked up and back on the orange trail. Would've taken a different route down if there was some sort of map or sign telling me where the other colored blazes went to. Views were okay.
It's a short hike but the views are excellent for the effort expended.
Nice hike with great views of the Hudson.
Easy hike with great views! Hiked numerous times, practically my backyard. I definitely recommend for a short, half-day hike.
Finished in about 3 hours. Didn`t see any snakes though. Had some fun scrambling.
An easy climb. The views from the top are wonderful. I could see the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. Also could see the Newburgh Airport. Hope to come back some day.
What an amazing hike! I started at about 10 AM and came down at 3 PM. The hike is only supposed to take 2 hours, but I tried a different route and got lost. So I ended up on the other side of the mountain. There were some outstanding views along the way, especially midway, when all the trees clear out. Awesome views of the Hudson and Newburgh. This was my first "true mountain". Hope to go back someday.
love this hike when i find some free time, short with great views
An easy hike--took less than 3 hours round trip. A good overlook from the top.
I also went on 04/20/08. You can get some good views of the Hudson Highlands from here. It's a short hike, so you'll have time.
My pregnant wife and I strolled out here sometime in fall 2005.
Short hike with some decent overlooks.
Climbed Butter Hill and Storm King, took the stillman trail down from the summit and around the front and back up again to Butter hill. Very tough going back up again and I am glad we went that way.
Very short hike from 9W. Took me 2.5 hours round trip (without hurrying and stopping for lunch). Not as scenic as I had hoped, but there is a good overlook from the top of storm king.
