This loop rewards with a classic Catskills setting, vistas, and challenge. Special attractions: Vistas, the 500-foot cliffs of Indian Head, wildflowers, fall foliage, and wildlife sightings. At times porcupine, deer, red eft, mouse, and toad draw attention away from the rolling trail.

Nice hike. We made the hike in reverse. The start was nice, then got steep. We had a slight problem with the dogs traversing some of the steep parts of the trail heading down, (up if you follow this guide), the Indian Head peak. If you have dogs on this hike, you may want to bring rope and harness for them. Steep drop-offs at the trails edge are breath taking. Beautiful hike!
