Good for a ppl who do not hike and who would pay $16.5 for an adult ticket to see something that can be seen for free at different location. I believe last weekend there were over 100 cars parked plus 2 “ coach America” size busses. Over priced and crowded. We turned back , drove 2 miles down the road and hiked for free, lol

3 stars since bathroom was clean

We live near here and it’s one of our go-to family trails with the kids. Tea Cup is great in the summer for cooling off!

Overrated, commercialized.

This is hiking for people who don't hike. I do like the place, it's beautiful, but i'm used to much, much tougher trails so it's more of a walk in the park to me. TONS of people (again, just not used to that) as it's a very touristy place. Place is beautiful and very easy to follow the trail. This kind of hiking is good for people with small kids.

looks nice but it seems closed

Went here back in September. Figured Ill leave a review. First time coming and I thought it was beautiful. F.y.i it is $16 for an adult ticket. Got some awesome photos of the waterfalls. Very clean. It’s not your typical hiking trail. The trail here is more clean, not exactly difficult. Perfect for people with no experience in hiking and want to get a feel of what nature is like without having to work up a sweat. It can be crowded and you will see plenty of dogs. Overall it’s perfect for a family outing. I would definitely go again

This not your typical nature walk. It’s a sightseeing adventure filled with beautiful waterfalls. Be prepared to climb and descend steps everywhere you go. I think the $16.50 to get in is a bit pricy but this is private land and maintenance on all those steps and walkways must be expensive.

This is great place for short hike. The views of the lake are nice. The trail is very easy to walk and to follow.

nice for everyone. tried the red one took us about 2 3 hours a lot of stairs but very beautiful. be careful where you put your foot don't kill anything

Great views of many water falls.

$16.50 per person. My first time hiking the trail. Crowded, but everyone was cordial and respected space. The hike takes about 2-2.5 hours depending on your hiking level.

Went on a misty, foggy day so didn’t get to see a lot of the views described, but this was a consistently nice 4 mile hike. Not a lot of elevation gain and not too rocky, so pretty easy overall. Would love to go back when it’s nicer for sure.

Great little hike. Dog friendly. Very quiet mid week

Great hike. Saw a bear!

Had a great time

NOT for real nature lovers. Went on a Saturday, very crowded lots of children and dogs. The waterfalls were pretty but not amazing. Th terrain along the entire path is not pretty, but rather ugly with tons of downed trees and branches the whole way. The wooden boardwalks and railings are irksome, constantly blocking you from feeling like you’re in nature. Pricey at $16.50 a person.

Hiked this trail earlier today with my husband, daughter and fur baby

Went saturday 9/22. Lightly trafficked is not true! this place was a nightmare! Full parking lot with a couple people even honking their car horns. Felt like I was in the city not the woods. The waterfalls were nice but if you are looking for some peaceful trails this is not the place to go! $16.50 for an adult to get in.

You have to PAY to hike this trail. No thanks!

We did the red trail. I understand the purpose of the wooden steps everywhere, as they provide views over extremely rough terrain, but this is not what I would consider a “hike” by any means. I paid $16.50 to walk up and down a bunch of steps. The views are beautiful but you don’t get much of a chance to take them in... not worth shuffling around multiple families on steep, narrow steps. Overall, disappointing for someone looking for a hike but a good place to spend the day if you have a family.

My friend and I went to hike for the falls. we learned when we got there you do need to pay to hike. it's beautiful but I wouldn't wanna take my dogs with because it's mostly wooden built bridge and steps until you get to an overlook area. I am glad I did it, but would rather go elsewhere.

We did the yellow trail with three kids (age 7, 2 and 3 months). The two older kids had a great time hiking and enjoying the Mother Nature, and it wasn’t that tired to carry the baby while finishing this trail. We were able to get all the way down to the bottom to see the main fall and we were lucky to see rainbow down there. We spent about 2 hours even though the suggested time was only 45 minutes.

Absolutely amazing!!! We did the yellow trail with 4 kids (ages 14, 12, 10 and 3) and everyone did great. Very well maintained - even though you have to pay, it’s worth it!! Friendly staff too! We’ll be back!

Always a pleasant and enjoyable walk, although I have not been going all the way around the lake this summer as everyone says the far portion of the trail is very overgrown. Be sure to bring good bug repellent with you!! The bugs have been pretty awful this year, every time I've gone.

Did a modified version of this hike. Sort of a figure 8 on a lollipop: Ramapo-Dunderberg over Black Rock Mountain to Hogencamp Mountain, then caught the Long Path at Times Square to Dunning. Followed that all the way to White Bar and then back up Durian to Black Rock Mountain, back down Ramapo-Dunderberg and out back to my car. Had to park a 1/4 mile west on Kanawauke Road since the parking area near the R-D trailhead was packed. Some great views from Black Rock and Hogencamp Mountains, lots of nice slab walking, some shady forest areas, big glacial rocks and abandoned mines. The boulder tunnel at Cape Horn on the Long Path was a fun surprise. The push back up Nurian to Black Rock Mountain at the end had me sucking some air. Only downside of this part of Harriman: motorcyclists who use Kanawauke Road as their personal speedway. Apart from the noise (which is only really noticeable at the start and end of the hike), it's a danger to hikers walking along the road and people getting in and out of parking areas.

About 8.5 miles round trip.

Awesome falls.

There is a large parking lot at the trailhead but depending on the day this area can get very crowded. These lakes are popular for swimming and fishing.

The trails are well maintained and the loop as marked on the map is easy for just about any skill level. Very flat and used by vehicles.

Awesome hike. Unfortunately the All Trails app was ABSOLUTELY useless. My location kept bouncing back to the physical location of the cellular towers and not my location on the trail. Luckily Google Maps worked and I was able to navigate.

Great for all!
