The Beehunter trail is about 6 miles long (the park signs say 6.5 miles but a gps track came up with just 5.8 miles, including the walk across the field from the parking lot to the trail head.) This trail is described by the Park brochere as one of the more difficult trails in Allegany State Park. It really is not all that difficult.

Apparently the person who created the park brochere believes that going uphill and downhill twice is "difficult." Most people who can't run a 5k in less than 25 minutes will probably break a sweat on the uphills but nothing that is going to cause a normally healthy person to have a heart attack, especially if you take a few breaks on the way up.
