Last summer we wanted to escape NYC so we headed up north to Woodstock. I figured when in nature we might as well walk around it. So we tried out hiking on this trail – and it turns out we were seriously unprepared. Had we not been smokers and in poor health, it may have been easier. But this trail is seriously all up hill. It will definitely be a challenge to a novice but to a regular hiker it might be appreciated. But despite our complaining, the views around here are truly spectacular.
