Ascent Trip Report

Bonticou Crag, Clearwater, Farm Road and Million Dollar View. Pay $15.00 per person at the gate. Starts out as a mild walk along a gravel road. Then you reach a wild rock scramble (using both hands) up huge boulders blazed with red...this is no joke. I had to take off my pack at one point and hand it to my son to get up a tight section. Once on the top, spectacular views of the Hudson Valley down along a long rock spine. Took the mellower yellow trail down. Somehow missed Table Rocks, oh well. Worth returning as there are so many things left to see.
