Unexpected beauty. Well maintained trail with some elevation changes. Not extremely strenuous. A must see if visiting northeast New York state.

We visited the place last summer. It was a very scenic place and a must visit in the NY state. My elderly parents had a hard time walking around. But, it was totally worth the effort.
