Nice hike, pretty river/waterfall. Beautiful lake. Also a good place to go sledding with the kids when there's snow on the ground. My dog loves it.
Nice quaint waterfall. Access is easy and unrestricted. Loop trail easy. Just short uphill but any age should be able to accomplish. Just not well marked. Found myself using this apps trail map to stay on course. Signs for "tower" but somehow completely missed it.
very kids friendly. Probably a nice view from tower once the leaves are gone
Great 1h 30min hike with a lot of different terrain and beautiful waterfalls. We hiked with two 6 year olds, a 5 year old, 3 year old and two 2 year olds. The littlest found it hard and we ended up carrying most of the time.
easy but beautiful.
It was okay, part of the trails were not marked towards the end so it got confusing. Good place overall though
I went more to hang out, and it was a 90+ degree day, so I stopped often to enjoy the scenery and relax. This trail is very beautiful, from the waterfall and the stream, the watchtower, and the covered bridge. The trees provide quite a bit of sun coverage, which is nice for me since I'm fair skinned, and the little sun spots on the water are so gorgeous.... There are a lot of uphill rocky slopes so if I were to go alone it would make a perfect workout!
This is one of my go to spots. If you do the big loop it can give you a pretty good work out. It has alot of different elements from the waterfalls, covered bridge, brook, steep climb and very woodsy. It is busy closer to all the activity and get quieter as you hike more in the wooded area. I do the start of the loop at the covered bridge and come out on the other side of the pond.
