This .6 mile hike into Ripley’s Fall is so worth the journey. There are a lot of rocks and roots to traverse. The path is narrow in places and it was a little wet in places (we went in Sept, probably is very wet in Spring). The granite face of the falls is amazing, creating more of a water slide then falls. The slab is wide so I would imagine in the Spring it’s even more grand.

Trail was super easy to navigate and it didn’t take long at all to reach the base of the falls. A little more climbing brings you to the top where I was able to sit with my dog and enjoy the views and the sound of the rushing water. Would totally recommend for any skill level!

This trail was so much fun for our family to hike! The perfect amount of a challenge for our 5 and 7 year olds, and the waterfall is beautiful! The kids had a ball walking and splashing in the water.

One of my favorite hikes. Easy and kid friendly. The brows are terrific!!

Love this trail! I took my dog and he loved being able to play in the water. There are several points on the trail to make your way over to the water which is nice. We’re definitely going back.

Poor directions to trail head. Lots of rail trail walking, better route for bikers.

Hiked Ring Trail to Witch Hazel then Blueberry Bluff to Ring Trail back down; easy and enjoyable. It took us about an hour round trip including exploring the Big A trail around the summit.

Great hike, nice views for such a short trip.

Great trail to walk with the dog. Labeled well. Enjoyed our walk meet a couple other dogs on the route. So nice that they have a big parking lot for people to park in. Quick reminder remember bug spray.

A really enjoyable hike...beautiful water and forest views. comfortable but somwhat rocky terrain.

Nice little hike. Took Ring trail to Witch Hazel to summit. Mostly very easy and a good hike for kids. View from the top is terrific with good visual aid to help identify directions and points of interest. Lots of roots and rocks so a little rough for anyone with any walking challenges.

First time going, theres a couple different parking spots with trail heads, but we chose to park at the lot at the bottom of Mt. Agamenticus look out [I believe you can drive to the top and park up there as well]. BEWARE of the bathrooms. My friend used the one at the bottom of the hill - No lights and poop all over the seat. Some trails are beginner friendly where others I'd rate moderate. We hiked to all 3 mountains; the first being the one with an actual view [if it's not foggy]. The second has no view but still has a sign labeling it Second Hill [LOTS of ants all over the rocks] and the Third One isn't even marked so we walked right past it [after taking Third Hill trail which actually ended up being a longer way - Easily could of took Ledge trail and been there sooner lol]. By the time we realized we had passed it we already had been hiking over 2.5 hours in the heat and was getting eaten alive by bugs [Yes, we put bug spray on before hand, but must've sweated it off] so we decided not to turn around. We thought we'd take the short way back, but ended up at Old Mountain Road. Used our "Maps" app on our phone to navigate the remaining 1+ mile walk back [on the road] to the car. Took us 3 hours to hike 4.35 miles.

great, nicely maintained trail. The whole area is nice epecially for it's location near the shore. it's worth a visit and if you don't won't to climb to the top you can drive there still with access to all the other trails.

Amazing view at Summitt

Nice, quick hike with tons of roots and mud along the way. The waterfall was beautiful! This trail is between easy/moderate, mostly for the quick elevation gain and small parts with climbing. Not bad, but watch your kids on the narrow parts.

I did a run around the ring trail, goose foot, cedar trail, vulture’s view, back to ring trail. The trails are in good shape and I got a nice workout.

Great to do with keep kids. Saw so many birds at the top.

awesome hike. went straight up vultures perch. then to summit two great woods multiple kinds of terrain, well marked and kept trails. can't wait to do it again

Very easy walk but a nice one. Great park, great view, only moderately buggy on July 9.

Great family trail with an amazing water feature at the end.

great little hike, tons of poison ivy so beware. many more trails than what this map indicates.

Easy .5mile hike to the falls. A quick pitstop of an hour tops.

Nice hike through the woods. The view at the top is beautiful. Perfect picnic spot. There is a little nature museum as well that is super kid friendly. Also you can drive to the top as well if you want to start there

Maudslay State Park is a beautiful place to wander. There are an abundance of trails, many of which loop around the park.

A beginner’s perspective:
This is a 5.2 mile, rocky hike. There are all sorts of rocks on this route - big rocks, medium rocks, ankle-twisting rocks, even a steep-ish rock face. So be prepared for that. And roots too.

The “moderate” rating may be true for the Presidentials, but is NOT comparable to, say Mount Monadnock’s “hard” rating. For a somewhat in-shape guy, this was doable, but a test — and I needed to watch literally every step.

The payoff is a beautiful summit, gorgeous views, and Gray Jays that will eat from your hand. Overall, a real test for flatlanders like me, but nice views and a great summit made it worth the considerable effort! (For what it’s worth, our 13 and 15 year olds had no major issues other than a lot of sweat and a few sore muscles)

Def not easy. Moderate would be more fitting. The view is so worth it!! Trail has muddy spots so gotta be careful.

Great short hike. I’m a beginning hiker in moderate shape and it took about 20-25 minutes. Drive up the driveway and park, there is no need to park at the end. Also, if you can do I highly recommend you hike up to the top of the falls, it’s very steep but the view is the best.

It was difficult to find the trail head (we ended up asking a local who directed us down Baker Rd) and hard to follow unmarked trails. In addition to unmarked trails, we found trails to be narrow and we came out with an absolutely extraordinary number of ticks. We do not recommend this trail.

Very easy hike and quick. Such a beautiful waterfall at the end
