Trail winds behind homes and has a refrigerator or 2 on it. Falls are dry. Late June. But good ascent and awesome for a 20 min hike.

Hiked all the way up there and the "waterfall" was completely dried out. Would not recommend to anyone looking for a waterfall.

A quick enjoyable hike. It includes a modest waterfall and a decent view from the top. Like many short hikes in heavily populated areas the viewpoint has turned into a litter box of broken glass and beer cans.

Pretty easy trail but with a steady climb, it took me 35 minutes to get up and back down with no resting. At one point the blue markings are replaced by white markings so that gets a little complicated.

Great hike for my girlfriend who isn't an avid hiker. But she enjoyed it, and opened her up to going more often.

Nice little hike with the kids to get out of the house. Was there on a Saturday and only a few people on the trail midday.

Pretty easy. There is a long trail extends the hike to 3 miles. I saw deer out there. Once you get off blue trail markings are not that great and they are doing construction on the path. You have to cross streets and people backyards if you wanna do the long path. The waterfall was a trickle when I saw it. Does have some nice views of the ramapo mountains. Saw some other people on the trail mostly teenagers. Didn't see any trash so pretty well kept up. Could do better with markings. Basically it's a one and done kinda trail.

Easy trail. Waterfall was running nice the few times I have been there. 1 scenic view at the top of the trail.

Used to be really pretty when I was little but now is a little bare of trees and the waterfall is only running after a very heavy rain. One view point of rockland county.
