After a lame trip to Howe caverns, we crashed at the holiday inn express in Coxsackie. Great hotel by the way. Decided to check out this hike with my 2 boys. Trail markings were very clear. The falls were just awesome. Boys and I jumped into the pool under the falls and had a blast. Great little discovery.
Took a fun hike today that included our Bassett hound. The trails were manageable, though could be better marked. Be sure to have the actual trails map with you otherwise you could end up going all the way to the opposite trail end. Their were several dipping in the creek by the falls. Good trail for a family hike.
I went there yesterday and once we arrived at the Creek we saw several fish working their way upstream. We also identified 4 different varieties of butterflies along the way. The walk is pretty easy, though muddy in spots. Check out the map on the way in since there are a few different trails there. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. Be sure to check out the falls. If you are attempting to reach the bottom of the falls, the safest place to access that area is about 50 yards downstream. It's quite easy to work your way up the stream from there provided the water isn't too high.

Great hike! Our dogs loved swimming at the falls. Wish the North Trail was a little less over grown.
