Was a very nice hike. Definitely a challenge right now due to snow coverage that is melting. Trail is slippery so hiking boots with really good traction or metal spikes are suggested. Beautiful view once you hit the top!

We went out on this trail after a huge storm and it was absolutely amazing! I can only imagine how beautiful it is when everything is green and in bloom. The difficulty and time needed to complete the hike increased a bit due to the amount of snow which had accumulated, but it was more than worth the effort. The view is perfect!

Great hike! Nice views of mountains and waterfall. Recommended.

Usually very busy with lots of people but the waterfalls are pretty. Very easy hike, great for kids, not great for strollers because there are some stairs to climb.

This is my favorite hike in NJ. We added on to this hike taking the spur to the right, orange marked trail, to Crater Lake. You can walk all the way around Crater Lake or just go back down. We then looped Hemlock Lake. Nice rocky outcropping at the end of Hemlock for a place to rest. Love the views and not too many people.

You can pick up the trail from anywhere but we started along the boardwalk and visited the cows. Also there’s an old cool cemetery hidden along the railroad tracks that’s a little hard to find but so worth it. Once you cross the road and begin
the hike it gets challenging as it is quite steep but the breathtaking views are the payoff!! Don’t miss it!

Entered at the beginning of the boardwalk that takes you through the cow pasture. The real workout begins after you cross the road. It was a butt buster for sure, and is similar to a talus field up and down so when the leaves are wet and covering the terrain makes it a little tricky!

very happy with this trail. Very well marked trail. It started as orange/white blaze, to orange only, ending as orange/blue blaze mark trail. Very quiet, only saw two other hikers. The walk way down to the falls made a steep decent easier. The falls are beautiful! Straight back up the mountain to the top for some beautiful views. I watched a red tailed hawk sore for quite some time and spotted a grouping of cedar wax-wings! GORGEOUS birds. There were a few sitting benches which made resting very enjoyable. Highly recommend this trail. It is definitely a moderate rating considering the steep decent and accent to and from the falls.

Cute little easy trail

Loved this trail. I thought it was easy. Had a stairway down to the waterfall. There were about 10 feet that had a kind of scary dropoff, for me anyway, probably not for most people. It was really pretty and peaceful. We went on a weekday.

I did one big loop at the Pocono Environmental Education Center. If memory serves it was at least seven miles. It's a beautiful place to hike.

Great hike for kids/ new to hiking explorers! Not too strenuous and well maintained (not rocky) trails. Beautiful views and gorgeous falls (go down the stairs - it's a climb to get back up to the trail but so doable and worth it). Plenty of benches and rocks to stop and rest while you enjoy the scenery.

Great trail. I went on Thanksgiving day, so there wasn’t much traffic, however that isn’t the norm. Definitely not a beginner’s hike, but it’s a great workout and the views are amazing.

Challenging hike for the Friday after thanksgiving!! Great climb to the top, the views were not that predominant and the trail was packed! But overall great hike, nice workout!

For an illegal hike it was great. I went in through the Moanalua Valley, and after going through the ridges, going back down through the stairs was well worth the risk. Do us all a favor and do not blast through the residents yards and treat the area and trail with respect if you go up via the stairs. This is a wonderful place that will definitely reach long term memory for you, but to keep the stairs from getting torn down we must respect the people that live by the entry despite out insistent need to challenge authority. Happy and safe hiking fellow adventurists.

Love this hike. One of my favorites for a quick workout with super rewarding views. You can definitely burn off last nights pasta on this short but steep climb. Only bummer is It gets very crowded.

First time doing the trail, very nice view at the top.

First time I’ve ever done this trail and I️ absolutely loved it!

Gorgeous view, highly recommend

Fun short hike. Nice uphill and good views.

Hike kind of lame. But the waterfalls were amazing and worth the hike.

Nice Rock Peak View.. Hard for beginners.. Worth the view reward. Collado was here lol

Wonderful maintained trail with terrific views and beautiful water falls. Parking is very easy as the trail is across the parking lot of PEEC.

Good fun. Great view from top.

Listed as moderate but two sets of people changed their minds halfway up is my observation.

i am a relatively new hiker, and this took a lot from me to accomplish. Steady escalation. Narrow ridge. Rock steps. All a bit challenging but worth it

Very nice and challenging hike! The boardwalk is beautiful. We even passed through a farm with cows! Highly recommend.

Really nice and enjoyable hike with a great view at the top.

What superlatives are left to describe this trail? Like others I though it was absolutely fantastic. I took the trail up while it was raining and caught the sky in transition up at the top as the storm was passing. Truly heavenlike. A few tips: as others have mentioned the trail is super rocky so sturdy shoes/boots will go a long way here. Also when wet, the rocks get slippeyr so always check your footing. And finally, did have a few ticks on my pants through the hike so I would definitely recommend wearing long pants or at least high socks.
