The falls are beautiful and a must see if near the area, trail is easy enough to follow and this hike can be done in under 30 mins. Not so good, lots of college aged kids screaming, blocking the trail and drinking beer. Pretty sure this is a common occurrence as the falls smelled heavily like beer, its unfortunate people cant respect the environment.

This was a really enjoyable trail. You can certainly hear the road noise from the highway but I was able to tune that out. I would suggest going early (if you want to avoid people). On our way back down, the parking lot was very very full! We will be back!

Family friendly short and shaded trail. The first hiking experience for my 4 year old child. He was excited and was able to complete the whole trail without getting a piggyback.

This is a very pretty fall hike along the creek. Muddy though. Like really muddy. Like lose you shoes in the muck muddy. Wear it as a badge of honor.

Heavily used small trail. Popular with families. More of an out and back then a loop. Scenic, though crowed waterfall. Small climb by bottom of waterfall.

Trail is well marked and has beautiful views
of Tobyhanna creek.

We took Appalachian trail to sunfish pond to turquoise and back down the Dunnfield Creek trail. Moderate incline on AT, good views of lake and then had to cross the creek 5 times over fallen trees etc due to cool Fall season temps. Overall fun day hikes - our fit bits put this more over 10 miles and hiked 5.5-6 hours. Very nice hike; pretty quiet on trail and only passing people on occasion.

Cloudy, foggy day so visibility / views were pretty limited so I can't really comment on that. The trail was well maintained and marked. I would rate this as moderate with one small section with a decent incline. We took the AT up and the fire road back down. Wasn't too busy but that was probably due to the slightly rainy weather. Not one of my top hikes but I'll come back and check it out when the weather is better.

definitely the best trail I've been to so far in New Jersey. Last weekend I went with my cousins. it says 8.9 miles but if you do a legit loop without taking the shortcut then it's actually over 11 miles. I wouldn't rate it as moderate though. My body wasn't sore at all the next day but you do have to be somewhat physically fit to do this trail. definitely wear proper hiking shoes. ankle support would be really helpful. if you wear merino wool socks, you'll be even more comfortable. cotton socks have no ventilation. wool protects your ankle and also keeps the moisture out. you will have to cross 5 creeks so make sure you either have waterproof shoes or boots high enough for you to easily cross the creek. the real beauty of this trail you see when the creeks start to come. some parts were extremely muddy. make sure you have enough water and snacks. definitely a must trail. legend has it that the 5 creeks were initially discovered by a native tribal leader, Zeeshan Anjum!

Nice short trail. Well shaded. Virtually my own private haven. I literally saw 2 other people on the trail (which is precisely the reason why I went the week AFTER Labor Day)

Nice hike, with some great overlooks and rocky outcroppings to explore.

This trail is great for families to hike together and practice safety since is easy but it has some challenges. You can get prepared together so you'll ready when taking those moderate and hard trails out there. Hooyah!!!

short and simple. cool trail through low trees.

1st half of trail coming from lot on Rt 191 is very rocky and offers couple of nice lookout or open spots for view pretty early on. The remaining half of trail on top of mountain is an easy walk on old road until you start descent down Mt Minsi. The trail down/up Mt Minsi is great and does have couple lookouts. Didn't want to have to retread a section of trail if could avoid it so once I got to bottom of Mt. Minsi had looped back up to top via a connecting old road (mostly grown in with webs and all). The road/trail is marked on AllTrails map but has no name and seemed to get little to no traffic. Is the 2+ mile trail connecting Mountain Rd to Totts Gap Rd (brief hike up actual street before turns into gravel road).

I climbed up from Dunnfield Creek trail and came down from AT. The total time was about 4 hours including a half hour lunch/rest at the pond. Most parts in the Dunnfield Creek trail was not difficult but the last leg had a really step elevation. With the gorgeous scenes, I was surprised to find so few people near the pond. The AT is quite easy.

Great short hike. Rhododendrons are lovely and the falls, while not huge, are very attractive. Fun bouldering opportunities for kids.

Nice easy walk with well groomed trails. You need to climb up onto stone in a few places along the trail, rocky embedded paths. Highly recommend it for beginners or novice hikers. Be sure to check out the weather beforehand because it can be overcast and misty, wet, with limited visibility.

Nice shaded trail. Very crowded on Sunday of Labor Day weekend to the point I didn’t enjoy - but drove by the trail head on my way out and it was very quiet. So I would imagine it being perfect with light to even moderate traffic. The trail is a little slippery but manageable. The waterfall is a great reward for such a short hike and with the littles ones it was a perfect break spot before returning.

Easy trail with incredible views.

Great, easy trail with beautiful views.

Nice easy outing with kids 6, 8, and 10 with nice water views. Trail gets muddy so definitely wear boots/good shoes after rain!

Very nice and easy hike. Great for family. One waterfall about 3/4 through the hike on your right. Pretty rhododendrons line the trail.

Did this hike with 14, 12 & 11 yr old kids. We all enjoyed it. As other reviewers said, you definitely hear the noise of the cars from the highway on the way up. Kids loved the water crossing. Very rocky - glad we all had on our high hiking boots vs. trail running shoes. Wish there were more vistas to see.

my husband and I read some of the reviews and I'm not sure we would agree it's for all ages and abilities. It's a very rocky trail with declines and inclines. We absolutely loved the trail as it felt we were hiking around a rocky mountain and the view at the side was gorgeous; however, for the last half of the trail we really couldn't enjoy the scenery as we were too busy watching where to walk because of the all rock, uneven trail. We had our 2 German Shepherds who we had on an extendable leash that had to wait for us as they loved the terrain and seemed to walk through it with the grace of a coyote. My husband and I unfortunately couldn't walk briskly with them as we usually do because we had to watch each step at the last half of the trail so not to turn an ankle. That was why we gave a 4. It made it hard to enjoy the scenery. That being said, we still loved the uniqueness of this trail. Would definitely recommend it to those that love trail walking.

I decided to do a trail run here but beginner me mostly walked up the white blazed rocky trail up which had nice views of the river, highway and Mount Tammany. I had an enjoyable run on the way down which isn’t well marked but goes to the parking lot. Took me an hour and a half with picture snapping happening. It alternates on the way up but there was only one spot I really climbed and rest were just rocky. Half of this is moderate and half not at all except for all the rocks. If I was going to run it again for just running, I would go straight up the easier trail (stay to right), and run back down.

Enjoyed a great hike here with my friend last weekend. We took the Appalachian trail up; about 2.58 intense miles which took about 1.5 hours with occasional rests. After a half hour rest with lunch, we took the fire road down in about an hour.

I would agree that the views are better from the NJ side, but it was still a very enjoyable hike. Loved the rhododendron tunnels, great place to cool off! We observed many large millipedes and a variety of mushrooms.

I would consider this moderate to diffiicult. The way up the mountain was steep and rocky. Got a great workout.

Nice easy trail. I agree with Lexi below, we went with our two dogs and there must have been 100 people standing around in the falls. we couldn't even get close. Will try to go back off season.

Great views, the trail was more rocky than expected, trail is well marked for the most part. I was very happy to have this app as a guide. The trail is well maintained, easy walk. Perfect for a beginner.
