Great workout, varied terrain

Watch our for the blue trail, I ended up on a road and decided to walk back because I was confused. Otherwise great glute workout on the way up!

Hiked on 1/14 and the trail was spectacular. The frozen falls were unreal and just stunning. Highly recommend this trail.

This park is a gem....this trail is an old railway bed so it's flat as can be. The sound of water can be heard along good portions of it. You can walk it all year basically....Excellent place to go.

Enjoy these trails all summer long

A bit crowded at times. Pleasent enough. I liked the rock scrambles. There really were no views even in the winter. It was a nice work out.

Got lost as you have to keep stopping to check for blazes. Don't assume if the path is cleared that it's the one you want to be on. Falls were frozen over and much smaller than photos made it seem. Pretty snow and ice on the creek. Ruins were kind of interesting. Bring poles if it's recently snowed or rained.

Lots of slipping in med, but even more stopping to search for blazes. Only Lucy's lookout had a sign, but we didn't notice a lookout. The view of Manhattan is under haze even on a clear day (think looking for LA from afar). Twice on this "mountain" and the adjacent one we found blazes for other trails that didn't match up with the map. It gets confusing. Bring poles if it's rained or snowed!

Nice mountain. 4.6 mile loop

Short, easy and scenic !

The type of trail that offers a little bit of everything when you need to get out!

Beautiful trails between the pine trees. Even though they were frozen the waterfalls were still gorgeous.

Be careful, the road leading to the trail is narrow and winding and has low visibility around curves. Definitely use caution so you don’t get into an accident

One of the best hikes in the area with highly rewarding waterfall 2/3 of the way through (depending on which way you go). Reasonably challenging terrain. Enjoy!

I love this trail. I love that you can take other trails and loop back onto it. Beautiful area.

Great view Went up the blue trail and back the white trail. Good short hike. Waterfalls were very nice. Will hike again.

.Did the white trail loop.. rocky on the upper part. Small inclines relatively flat... very nice!

From the parking area, I took the yellow to orange along the reservoir. Then turned back on the white, and looped around on the red stripe to blue. From bear rock I took the white back towards the parking area.

Yellow/orange was incredibly well marked almost to the point where it was a bit obnoxious. Everything after that, you had to pay some attention. Yellow/orange was a really nice stroll along the water then up some rocks to cliffs overlooking the water. Red stripe seemed a little less traveled - was a fun little stretch. Blue was steep at times- and very rocky.

Maybe not the most exciting hike or the most rewarding views, but at the end of the day was a very enjoyable hike with varied terrain.

Fantastic hike with lots of beautiful things to see. Have done this hike multiple times and brought friends. I combine the falls and cliff trail.

It’s a great moderate trail. There are others trails that link each other throughout the park. The red trail goes along the river with some beautiful spots to stop.

Great area with lots of space and options. Even on busier days you won't have to worry about crowding (on the trails), however, parking can get a little tight but there is plenty of additional side of the road spaces available. Also- make sure to check out the visitor center, especially if you have kids!

Rode it end to end quite beautiful in areas enjoy!

Beautiful, beautiful spot. The waterfalls here are absolutely gorgeous. Totally worth the visit.

Lots of fun climbing over rocks alongside river

Been going there for 20 years. Easy and close. As I was leaving I saw a couple They had to be 85-90 years old. WOW good for them.

Yellow section was kinda confusing. Got turned around a few times but otherwise not terrible.

It was a horrible experience. We got lost due to terrible maintenance of the trail and ended up in the middle of nowhere and encountered a shit load of snakes. Nothing good to see. Never AGAIN.

First visit today, absolutely beautiful trails are marked and there is easy access for an old man like me. Other reviews were very helpful I plan on a return visit

Hackers was cool. I combined Raymondskill falls, cliff trail and Hackers falls into one hike. I had a blast. Here is my trip report.
