directions to the trailhead are off
I followed GPS coordinates to get to the beginning of the trail but seems like they are off-base. This is what has been posted on here: 41°26'52.3"N 74°01'49.9"W, which leads you to a village north of storm king state park

Be careful of ice in the winter
<p>I did this hike last weekend. The previous weekend I was in a different area of this park, and had no snow/ice the whole trip.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I brought my microspikes with me, which seemed like overkill (given there was no snow on the ground), but I had remembered hiking here before &amp; had a recollection that the trail was narrow and could be icy. I'm very glad I brought them. Even though there was no snow, the Stillman Trail had some bad ice flows. I met some hikers who had no microspikes and they found it very difficult and had to hike off trail. I did bring microspikes, but they were not even adequate in some areas with very hard ice (they weren't biting into the ice adequately).&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Some photos showing the ice across the trail:</p> <p></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
