Cohoes Falls Trail is a 0.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Cohoes, NY that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and trail running and is accessible year-round.
A beautiful site but be aware that this location actually closes on November 1 you have no access to the trail ,very disappointing as the app states it is open year-round
closed for the season November 1st :(
Nice walk, beautiful views. NO DOGS allowed ... Thank goodness it's a short walk in and out... We had to take turns while someone stayed with the dog. You can leisurely do the whole walk in about 20 minutes.
Relaxing no too busy would bring s lunch!i
A nice short walk with a long and steep set of stairs, but the view is absolutely breathtaking. There is an area for fishing as well which is really neat, but the falls are a must see for everyone. Driving through the town you will see some beautiful architecture as well.
Steps were a nice challenge. Falls were awesome
While the trail is short, urban, and mostly man-made, the falls themselves are very impressive. Views of Cohoes Falls vary from the top to bottom, and probably from season to season as well. I will go back in winter to see the frozen falls (if it gets cold enough this year).
I live in Saratoga Springs, and it amazes me that I hadn't heard of Cohoes Falls until I lived here for over ten years. Many I talk to haven't heard of it either.
these directions will bring you to the trail. the trail is yucky. tons of garbage and LOTS broken glass. might be nice in winter and it looks like a really fun dirtbike trail though! went in about a mile to view the falls then turned back. the woods around the trail aren't even nice.... a very disappointing trail :(
The falls were nice however the trail was overgrown past the falls.
Nice water views
We have enjoyed this trail in all seasons but it always amazes us how the falls look when they are frozen over. Great trail for the kids - just watch the edge.
Beautiful local scenery. Biggest waterfall in New York besides Niagara Falls. Somewhere to go and sit and look all day.
