excellent hike, easy.

Great for a quick, pretty hike with picnic.

A friend and I did this hike yesterday. It was a sunny day and there was a lot of snow still on the ground. The hike was lovely and definitely a workout going up and a little hairy going down. Best to hold onto some branches and trees or avoid slippery rock faces and take the deep snow way around. All in all a great 2 to 2 1/2 hour hike. if anyone happens to go on the trail and finds a gray hat with a pompon, please contact me st 203 592 8403. I believe I lost it on the trail and would love to get it back!

Nice winter hike! The trail can be a little muddy and slippery when snow covered. Beautiful waterfalls and some steep section and rewarded with amazing views.

A lot of tree roots
but we love it

One of my favorite trails . I once did it in flip flops ! (Big mistake) does have challenging points but the view is worth it ! Not for everyone and make sure to bring water and proper footwear!

Cascades is the best!! The part past the lake has parking down a little hill and dogs can be off leash to play starting 100ft from the dirt lot. If you want a longer hike though start at the parking mentioned.

One of my faves :) it's an easy loop with some moderate difficulty along the way and beautiful scenery:)

Great winter hike - loop trail is strenuous enough for a work out and quick enough (90-120 min) to squeeze into a busy day. Nice views of the surrounding hills and a few streams and small waterfalls. Trail is well marked and dovetails with the AT for ~0.5 mile.

Magical especially after a snowfall...

Quick and nice!

Insanely difficult and dangerous. But I’m a complete scaredy cat! If you are not a rock climber full time, don’t do it! Beautiful view at the top, though!!

Worth every step.

Love this place. Easy hiking and beautiful scenery.

The Falls Trail is more than moderate, especially if you’re walking with children. Erosion has brought the trail very close to the river over unsteady rocks and exposed tree roots.

Awesome trail with beautiful views on top and a nice stream on the way down. Very strenuous in certain points, steep going up to the top

Beautiful trail... scenic

Very rocky, a bit confusing, and the end of the trail comes out to an extremely busy and windy main road, in which you have to walk back about a mile to the main entrance. This was a one and done.

Good workout, nice vistas, well-marked trail, with an interesting brook.

Beautiful views, not a long hike but definitely gets your heart racing. Well marked

Pretty hike, did it counter clockwise, two beautiful views, varied terrain, definitely a heart racing hike so agree with all who say drink plenty of water and pace yourself. Clocked this at 3.9 miles, not 2.6.

Great place to check out

Was a really cool quicker hike that still really gets you winded. Decent views, cool topography.

I've yet to come across another hike that allows for such awesome and ample access to a cliffside scramble. The quarry is certainly the highlight of the blue trail. But the backside of the mountain, facing East, offers some awesome views of New Haven.

The wooded areas on top of the mountain are magical and have their own unique energy which is so inviting and peaceful.

I'm so glad that I live near this wonderful spot.

Nice trail, with nice lake view at the top.

great place to meditate

Absolutely beautiful trail with amazing views! I am not sure I agree 100% with the kid friendly aspect, as there are some cliff faces and sheer drops you have to climb as well as go down. Perhaps tweens and up, not too sure about younger though. My dog was able to do this with ease though haha!

Family hike. Absolutely beautiful! Challenging for me and my wife (while toting the kids) and we are definitely planning on returning to explore more of the trails!

blue trail is tough. fed a good hike and good views. lots of traiks
