The trail isn't marked well but even in a light snow cover we were able to figure it out. Watch out for a few icy patches on the trail that we had to work around if you'll be on the trail in the winter. The falls were gorgeous ... parts along the cascade edges were frozen but running full force!

And we met a young porcupine near the trailhead just after the parking area! It was a bit shy ...

Great hike, Idk what people are talking about. I thought the orange blazed trails were marked fine. I loved the waterfall and the running streams through the trail. A little bit of a workout but very peaceful.

this was leg 4 of the metacomet for me.started at res #6 in w hartford ended at rte6 in Farmington, 9 miles gorgeous dec day, nice hike

Loved it here!

Short, easy but a lovely view especially during sunset.

The walk to the falls itself is nothing much to speak of, but the falls are amazing! Excellent spot for some photo-ops. Trails are well maintained and nice and wide. Good for a casual stroll, particularly with pups.

Great hike, the “caves” were more like GIANT boulders and really fun to explore around. It was pretty wet in a lot of places so I would recommend water resistant hiking boots. Our dog loved it too!

One of those great trails you tell ur friends about. Clearly beaten trail in the winter. Poor markings. Short distance on roadway.

Nice views from tower and nearby places. One of the best places in this area. Very busy during weekends, especially packed on parking lots.

Easy hike

Beginning is very easy, after you walk on the side of the road and then go back into woods it gets harder. I would say more in the harder side than moderate. There’s climbing rocks, hanging on to rocks over a edge. Don’t recommend parents to take there kids. But for a experienced hiker, it’s a very good hike! Sometimes it’s got hard to follow the trail marks, some aren’t as easy to notice as others. But as long as you pay attention you should be fine. Very beautiful rock formations!

Beautiful and serene. Nice views, well marked trail. A favorite local hike.

One of my favorite CT hikes. Right near my house so I get to do this one a lot.

Nice, easy walk. The trail was well maintained and the markings were clear. There were some nice vistas that showed off the fall foliage which was beautiful

Lots of dogs on Sunday.

The trail was very hard to navigate but the view was worth it once we found it. It was decently easy as far as endurance just a very steep walk to the oven and steep down from the view point.

Take a picture of the trail map before you head out. Around the group campgrounds, the orange blazes disappear for some reason.

The trail was not well marked, but thankfully there was enough foot traffic that it was easy to follow your way to the falls (which are beautiful, but smaller than expected).

Went with our family, age range from 6-35 and we had a great time. Took the orange trail, beautiful views well worth the hike!

awesome, this is the first leg of meta comet that I'm doing,crazy weed farm at trail head in Mass, can't wait to do 2nd leg

definitely worth it nice up and down few wet spots but enough roots and rocks to keep your feet dry caves are pretty awesome and also saw a gray fox on the way back from the caves near the top

oh yeah, I also saw a gray fox on the way back from the caves

definitely worth it, few spots with mud and puddles but enough roots and rocks to keep your feet dry, caves are pretty awesome, highly recommended

Did the trail for the first time with my 3 year granddaughters, niece and husband. It was a little scary at times because of my granddaughters ages, but then I’m a city girl from the projects in NYC. Anyway, WE LOVED IT and we plan on making hiking our thing to do on Saturday’s.

Did this trail and it is by far the best in the area.

A short trail but worth it. Amazing views along the cliff and the tower at the end. Worth it to go when the tower is open and you can go up to the top and get some amazing views. Underline amazing.
