good hike
Just did a quick hike today. The path was well marked and it seemed to go quicker than the time indicated. Highly recommend if you want a short hike and have the rest of the day to do something.

Mileage of hike
I have reviewed the length of this hike with John Mack, our West Hudson Trails Chair, and he has assured me that the 3.8-mile figure we give as the distance of the hike is accurate.  This figure is based on wheel measurements, which are more accurate than GPS measurements.

We hiked this route yesterday with a few inches of snow on the ground. Nice hike! The mileage we got on our GPS was more like 4.8 miles. Our time was pretty consistent with what was reported.
