“A long meandering trail with steep traverses, streams, and wildlife.”— Gunks Jesse
Starting from the Mohonk side, park at the Coxing Creek area. The trail starts at the top left corner of the parking lot (facing the parking lot from the road). The first thing you'll see is the old Enderly family graveyard on your right. The trail continues through a swampy section that crossed on planks. This requires good balance. It crosses a small stream over planks. This stream is later crossed by hopping from rock-to-rock.
After this crossing there is a split in the trail. King's Highway goes straight up the hill. High Peters Kill Trail goes left and traverses under the hill. Take the left and continue following the trail as it traverses around the Dicke Barre Wilderness Area. The trail gains the ridge line and crosses past an old ski area. It continues through a beautiful section of cliffs with a stream and a waterfall at the foot and exits at a small parking area along 44/55.
