nice open trails and easy to follow

Nice trail with good scenery.

Great hike. Awesome views. Easy to follow. Trail markers every few hundred feet.

Awesome place!

Great walk for everyone, make sure to go when it’s not too hot out otherwise the falls will be dried

I hiked this in winter. The water falls are so beautiful. The trails are perfect. We did the entire 4.6 mile look and stopped halfway at a picnic area to have a snack. If it is this pretty in the winter, I cant wait to come back in the spring. Oh, the rim trail was open, the gorge trail was not (due to ice) but the view we had were still spectacular!

I did this trail in the Spring. The key is to get there early, because it will be packed. If solitude is more what you prefer when hiking, this is not the trail for you. That being said, the beauty of the gorges and waterfalls on this trail is worth dealing with the crowds. Definitely worth the price to get in.

Nice, easy walk with some nice water spots.

This was one of the most beautiful trails I've ever done. This was one of the stops on our road trip from Michigan to Maine. I'm so glad we did it!

Beautiful! Just watch out for the ice under the snow if you go in winter.

As advertised, very easy, but an unbelievably scenic stroll. Some dirt trials so wear boots if raining

Easy trail with no technical parts, wide open and simple to follow. Went in January and was still in good condition and easily hikeable until we got to the lake where it was icy.

Easy, heavily trafficked trail (most likely see an abundance of kids and dogs). The flame is really interesting to see, much more enjoyable when there aren’t other people to get in the way of some cool pictures. Other than that it feels just like a walk in a park.

I've visited this park twice and it never disappoints. This is a must in the fall!

Peaceful trails, gorgeous waterfalls. Absolutely stunning in autumn.

A nice scenic walk.

This isn't really a loop. It's a down-and-back trail. There's a point where you can go down (which is where it starts to "loop") to the river, but you have to walk along the river the rest of the way, which really isn't easy. Would probably be fine in the summer in sandals when you could walk in the water. But if you're trying to keep your feet dry, I wouldn't recommend trying to do the "loop."

Checked this one out in June of 2017. And this hike doesn’t disappoint! It’s beautiful and moderately well trafficked. Great for all ages. There’s a bit of stairs along the way which are a great way to enter the trail. Awesome views of the falls and rock formations, would definitely go again.

This isn’t really a trail. It’s more of a scenic viewing area. There’s a Little Rock chair right next to the falls situated in the middle of a residential area. But it’s beautiful nonetheless and totally worth checking out. (June 2017)

Beautiful trail that we did in early November... Cloudy, sprinkling snow and temps around 30... Beautiful scenery with stunning falls viewed from look-out decks high above the bluffs...
View of Canandaigua Lake, too!

Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

Falls are worth the trip. Bruce trail sections are fun.

no trail markings, trail is rather difficult to follow, however it was fun and challenging. Went down to the creek about a half of a mile down the trail then followed the water a ways. Climbed back up the embankment and followed the top trail back. I did not see the rope near the falls, but we did not investigate too hard.

Beautiful hike. Empty in November. Icy but worth it for the experienced hiker.

It is rated moderate but it is as easy as it gets.

An easy hike. Lots of people were there the day I did it. Old, young, dogs, etc. A little bit of climbing was involved, and plan on getting a little wet after a good rainfall.

The falls is fantastic -quick incredible, but this isn’t a hike.It a simple walk to the falls.

Did not think it was moderate ...not hard at all. Beautiful place!

Great, easy loop. Very well maintained for walking, running, or snowshoeing. Worth checking out the small falls!
