nice try, mike.
the real answer is the hike you are looking for is called gertrudes nose, easily the best hike in the gunks and perfectly OK in any sense of the word. from the main millbrook trail, starting at the upper minnewaska parking lot, and following the signs for millbrook, go just past the landmark glacial erratic called pattersons pellet. keep looking and you'll see a blazed, small trail on the right side of the main trail heading into the woods just after. follow the trail along spectactular cliff lines with views of the palmaghatt ravine all the way to gertrudes nose and keep going it takes you all the way back to millbrook on the other side with views of the wallkill valley.
