One of my favorite hikes !... this hike will not disappoint !! ... great look out points

Nice hike ... not difficult at all .. perfect if you’re looking for a short hike

I love the this place me and husband go all the time.

Hiked on 11-11-18 Sam’s point , Ice Cave and Verkeederkill Fall Trail. Lots of water though after the rain. Recommended waterproof footwear.
Ice Cave is icy and cold. Make sure to dress warm. Verkeerderkill Falls view is Amazing, Beautiful trails.
The views are breathtaking. Awesome hike !

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

Great hike for all levels. The view at the bottom of the lake is wonderful and the path along the lake is very peaceful. The climb to the top gives a great view!

I had trouble finding the path to the blue trail that brings on top... If taking the white trail longing the lake and then going on top of the mountain (to get on the blue trail), you will have to cross a small bridge and keep heading away from the lake for like 2min and then the blue marker will be on a tree on the right (the path is delimited with rocks that blend well in the scenery). Then just keep your head up to see the markers. Can be done within 2h.

The foliage right now is outstanding. Bright green pitch pines in a sea of bright red bushes. Suggested waterproof shoes for the footpath to the fall. At times the footpath turns into a stream as you approach the fall. Probably will get worse after rains. Nonetheless a magnificent hike for variety of pace and beauty of scenery. The approach on both direction is a carriage road so do not aspect anything more than a pretty country road. Enjoy!

hiked it on 11-4-18. was as awesome as the first time. lots of water though, definitely bring some waterproof shoes if hitting it after some rain. river crossing to the falls looked sketchy but wasn't at all once halfway in. would suggest hitting up with ice caves and Indian Rock, made the total mileage 11.4.

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 but verrrryyy muddy. Had to scoot across a fallen tree at one point to get across the water. Be prepared to have some wet feet if you don’t have waterproof boots. Enjoy lunch at the lake and be sure to look for the city skyline at various lookouts on the trail. We did see a small black snake right on the trail which was more scared us of but just something to be aware of.

Great day and hike. Enjoy

The trail is narrow and really rocky. We went after a big rain and the trail was completely covered in water essentially the entire way. We couldn't cross at the mouth of the water fall because the water had risen so much and the current was so strong that it felt dangerous to complete the trail to even get a really great look at it. We wound up hiking a bit in the opposite direction but the view was mediocre at best and covered by a lot of trees. A lot of other hikers hiked upstream to cross but it was incredibly muddy and just covered with so much overgrowth that it was hard to navigate. I've heard that it's not great to come during the summer because there's not much water, but coming after a big rain and not being able to cross after hiking almost 2 miles on a rocky/wet trail was really disappointing. I don't think I'd go out of my way to do this one again.

Great trail....starts steep right off the bat. Have to cross the water a few times getting to the top. Great views of the upper falls. AT to Everett is steep but worth the hike. Ran / Hiked rt 41 to Everett and back in 2 1/2 hrs.

We went clockwise on the loop and enjoyed the first half of the loop. The return part of the trail was really wet making it difficult and not as much fun.

Nice park close to the city

I gave 5 stars bc it is a great hike with great scenery. The trails are very well marked.

Went during the week to avoid the big crowds and it was totally worth it. It was a pretty short hike up to Sam's Point and the views were amazing. Walking to the falls was pretty easy, flat, and a beautiful walk as well. These trails were easy to navigate and the paths were pretty clear. Take a day off and try to go during the week!

Fun day on the trails. Some really nice foliage. Did the full loop for the first time. Found the short loop a little more challenging though! Look forward to hiking Breakneck Ridge.

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!

The first half doesn’t seem like it will be worth it but if you do the entire trail it is breathtakingly beautiful. The peak, falls, and caves make for a very interesting and well worth it hike

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

Easy walk up to the fire tower. As others said, nothing special about the hike itself, but the view from the fire tower is spectacular.

I have been hiking here for over 15 years... love this place

Great trails , awesome views .
