Very nice easy trail. Restrooms at the interpretive center. Mostly paved except the dirt side trails.

Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

I had a difficult time finding the entrance to this ‘trail’ tucked in behind a marina. This trail is a paved blacktop road suitable for biking walking or running. The scenery is beautiful, but there is not much shade. Safe place to run, with beautiful views and no traffic.

Definitely a must do walk around Goat Island/Niagara Falls State Park. All paved trails and steps/ramps (most areas ADA accessible, including by wheelchair and/or stroller) where needed to see the different falls, rivers, and smaller islands. Cost $10 to park the car, no other fees to hike around. No crowds this fall cool rainy season time of year-had a beautiful mild temp sunny day with gorgeous fall colors everywhere-yellow, oranges, reds!

I was taken aback by the ginormous, mossy boulders that make up this stunning trail. You can tell that this area has a rich geographic history to it. I have been to Niagara Falls more times than I can count but truth be told... I had no clue that this trail even existed. One of my close friends brought me here and now I can’t stop thinking about how badly I want to return to it. Make sure not to miss this trail!

Well marked trail to two great waterfalls. We went after a heavy rain and they were flowing! Expect to get your shoes a bit wet if its been raining crossing the stream. Dog friendly and they loved it! Partially paved to Blue Hen falls which is only about .25 miles from parking.

Of all of Cuyahoga Valley, this is one of my favorites ... the blue hen falls is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot and is not difficult ; to get to buttermilk is a more strenuous hike as its more of a natural path.

These falls are very cool ... from the parking lot there is multiple trails you can take, so you could hike for a couple hours or just hike the 5 minutes to the waterfalls.

Beautiful hike to explore. Great to hike in the fall! Watch your footing though lots of roots.

Great hike! Easily one of our top favorites in CVNP. A must see!!

Nice day hike with views

Tough initial hill, smooth sailing after that.

Fun trail! Very confusing to get to the falls but hike back was super easy! You do cross the creek and can be slippery, highly recommend waterproof hiking boots with great traction.

I enjoyed this route. we ended up hiking down the stream most of the way and made this a loop by finding a rdige trail that met up with the buckeye trail to get back to blue hen. was a lovely hike.

Easy hike! Great for an afternoon away!

Love this trail, made it to the buttermilk falls off the trail.

if u go off trail there is another waterfall

Fun and beautiful! Great for kids too

Go beyond the end of trail sign and check out buttermilk falls... The trail isn't hard but it's full of roots and several stream crossing but easy to find your way. So much fun and the dogs love it because they have to think as well. Worth the adventure

Besides the noise it’s a fun adventure.

Easy walk. You’ll see some horses as you walk.

Trail is located in the central area of Niagara Falls State Park. Offers a fantastic view of rapids and the falls. The trail itself has a lot of traffic, but it's Niagara Falls. Scenic and majestic views all along the trail.

Amazing easy trail with great views!

River Trail and Boulder Trail are a must see! So is Whirlpool Trail leading through rocks. Be prepared for solid climbing but also amazing views you've never seen before.

Love this route. I do a winter hike here every year!

Awesome! So much to see... little bridges to islands. Several smaller waterfalls to find. Access to cave of the winds, and cafe with food and drink.
Most areas are
Dog friendly!!

To echo everyone else, the trail, the scenery in the gorge, the entire experience was awesome!!
