The trail to the summit starts near the Storm King Ranger Station, and initially follows the trail to Marymere Falls but branches to the north after a short distance. The first 1.9 miles (3.1 km) is on maintained trail but the rest of the climb involves scrambling on loose rock with some exposure.
Mount Storm King reviews
We hiked the Storm King Trail after a short hike to Marymere Falls near Crescent Lake. The trail is short, less than 2 miles, but quite steep with switchbacks all the way. As you get near the end...

The view at the top was amazing. So worth the hike. I was very nervous about the rope climb but it was not that difficult. I recommend hiking boots and gloves for the rope climb.

Loved this hike! Definitely will feel it the next day but the views are amazing. By the time we got to the ropes, heavy, dark clouds had rolled in and unfortunately we couldn't continue. If you're afraid of hikes, the last portion may not be for you as there are steep drop offs on either side of a very, very narrow path. This is right before the ropes. Overall, it's a beautiful hike with rainforest, views, and fun challenges.
Incredible hike, even in not so perfect conditions! Take your time on this one because it's all uphill. A lot of the roped areas beyond the maintained trail aren't crazy inclines and you can get up with some careful footing (though the ropes are a nice security, especially if you aren't blessed with grace). I found them more helpful on the descent. I wasn't lucky enough to see sweeping views due to fog, but the summit was rewarding anyway. A must-do if you're up for a challenging trail that won't suck up your entire day.
