This is a long hike and a significant part of it involves scaling rocks on all fours. But when it is done you will be exhilarated. You need some level of conditioning and strength to make it through. there are 3 or 4 scenic summits...More

Very nice place for an easy hike, a picnic and even some brook fishing. Wasn't buggy yet in late April but might be in May.

Macedonia State Park is a little known delight. Great hiking trails and views toward the Catskills Mountains in NY State. The Macedonia Brook flows through the entire park, providing a fabulous backdrop for campers and day trip picnic visitors.

Just got back from a great 6.8 mile hike today on the Blue Trail. (2.5 hours at a good/constant pace.) Thanks to many other reviewers, we went counterclockwise on the trail which optimized views and helped offset the super steep portions of the trail. Views...More

Stayed one night on campsite 18T. This site was a bit removed from our car as it was adjacent to site 19, but was somewhat remote and backed up to a night wooded hill. We found the site to be clean and quiet enough to...More
