Great hike, but very steep all the way up with lots of slippery rock surfaces. The dog did great. Bring shoes with good tread!

Fun hike especially on a hot day. My daughters loved to swim in each of the three waterfall pools. I agree with those who say it is a good beginner hike to the first waterfall. Gets a bit rocky after that

worth a trek up if you're in the area. the views from the top are great and the steep trail gives a nice taste of adirondack hiking without the endurance requirements of an adk high peak.

Tougher than I was expecting as it is a steady incline nearly the entire way. The view is absolutely worth the climb and the fire tower is incredible from the top. 2hrs roundtrip.

beautiful sights on the water and in the woods. wholeheartedly agree that the trail is super easy to lose. this app was our primary guide at times. mellow trail good for kids and pets. quick and peaceful!

The falls are nice, but the trail is not well-marked, and there are a number of intersecting trails that can make it confusing if you don’t know the area.

great relaxing hike.

What a lovely trail! Easily accessible, not difficult. Definitely muddy in some spots, but nothing too much. The falls are wonderful, with lots of space at the top (although no one was there when I visited). Markers are easy to see and maps are available at the kiosk prior to entering the trail.

amazing hike with serious ascents. the trail is well marked and almost entirely shaded. yes. it is rocky. sturdy shoes a must. hiking poles recommended. other hikers describe crowds. not our experience on a summer monday. we saw a few folks each way. at the top you will pop out on a park road. go left to find picnic tables, bathrooms, cold water, and a great view of lake George.

This was a difficult hike mostly up steep terrain. Coming down is slippery -bring walking sticks. I would call this more than moderate difficulty.

Clearly marked trail off the Warren County Bikeway approx. 1/2 mile north of Rte. 149. The start is very steep and rocky, it had rained the night before so it was also slippery. Took an hour and 15 min up and 45 min back. Overall a nice moderate hike.

Beautiful place to hike. Definitely recommend!

For sure one of the more difficult hikes we have been on. It was a challenging hike but very rewarding and beautiful at the summit. Prepare to get your heart rate up. Great for older kids...not for younger ones....and our King Charles loved the hike....recommend for all but bear in mind...this is no cake walk!

Awesome hike

Good hike. I agree with the easy level. This was our first time on this hike and the trail did not have good markings. Will do again next time I'm in the area.

GF and I did this hike after a full day of basically non stop rain.The rocks were slippery so we decided to stay slightly astray from the trail as walking in the dirt was safer.Red trail is really well marked and simple to follow.Starting at the stairs we made it to the summit in 1:13 and that was with a few short stops here and there.We were fortunate enough that not many people had driven up so it was not crowded.Windy but it felt great in a humid day.Views were fantastic.I would suggest hiking shoes and we had trekking poles which helped but this is a very manageable trail.Our round trip was 3:05 but I took quite a few pictures up top.

Hadley was a lot steeper than I was led to believe. The view at the top was worth it though! My Fitbit tracked it to be more than 4 miles, not the 3.4 listed above.

Awesome hike, Decent incline- Worth the views. check out the back side once at top, awesome views!

Steady incline for most of the hike with several areas being solid rock with no ground covering (which we referred to as sidewalk). Great views but quite busy!

Nice hike today - temps in the 70's with a slight breeze. It hasn't rained much lately so there wasn't a real lot of water flowing down. Trails were well marked and there were some roots and rocks along the way. Not a lot of others out on the trail - especially to the 2nd & 3rd falls. My Garmin hike app said it was 4.2 miles with an elevation gain of 551 ft. It took us 1 hr and 52 mins to go up and back (not including our breaks). Bugs were not an issue.

Beautiful walk. More a walk than a hike, though some parts are quite steep.There are more trials than the two loops shown.I you go straight up the hill along the edge of the. meadow, there's also a trail that continues past the cutoff to the tower, down around the back side of the first hill to the left (west), and then along heading SW. Trails aren't marked AT ALL, but are wide and easy to follow. Quite well maintained, and mowed paths in the open field as well. Who maintains this place? Clark Foundation?

Great hike with amazing views. Trail was a little difficult for my young kids. At the top the park rangers have a water cooler station to refill bottles.

I hiked this trail last weekend as the first stop (chosen at random) for the Firetower Challenge. Fairly straight forward, it was steeper than I expected at some points but I’m also pretty out of shape. Views were amazing up at the fire tower and the steward was friendly and helpful in answering everyone’s questions. Lots of dogs and kids on the trail that day, which was nice to see. I would definitely hike it again.

Great short trail! A little further than a mile and pretty easy terrain. My group went backwards (technically) and followed the river downstream to get to the falls. Great photo opportunities.

Love hiking Hadley in the fall. Awesome views!

Amazing trek! Views are amazing!!

a fun trail full of critters and a great view.

Moderate is a little off. I’d say hard. The runs are straight up for the first half, over rocky terrain. The second half of the climb is steep but fun. The view at the top was well worth it! Only complaint was that it summits at an area that is basically a parking lot and picnic area. Shame on me for not reading more about this climb. I do not like to hike to something everyone else can drive to. Although we had a great time!!!
