The trail leads to some very nice views, but parts of the trail are very rough and wet. The climb is fairly short and steep. You'll pass several nice views, and a late day hike with views of the sunset is recommended.
That said, the descent down the Wapack to the State Line Trail is worn and very muddy. Parts of the trail are impassable without going off to the side, and there has been a lot of erosion.
I enjoyed this hike, and would do it again, but any hikers should be ready for the possibility of a slip in the mud or a twisted ankle.
This was my first hike ever. I just started to hike in my mid forties. It is a short hike but making it to the top on my first hike gave me the the sense of satisfaction I needed. It just made me want to hike bigger and better. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the family.
Fun hike, short but fun. This would be a GREAT snowshoe trek. Just enough vertical and not too long. Oooh, I can't wait!
