The views here are unreal. It's a really great challenge. The trails are blazed most of the way. You climb pretty fast, too. You have to make your own decision at the top to hang a left at the giant rock pile to get to the summit with all of the views. Went with trail sneakers, would definitely recommend boots. The rocks get slippery when it gets a bit colder.

Went up the Red Dot trail and down the Blue. I have asthma and a chronic cough and am definitely out of shape and haven't hiked in years so the ascent was extremely challenging for me. There are a couple of very difficult spots that are all rock and steep. I almost gave up but I knew the payoff would be so sweet if I made it to the top. I had to stop many times. My poor partner who is very much more fit than I was patient, however, and we made it. I am so glad I stuck with it. The top was amazing and thrilling and beautiful. You can do this! If I can do this, anyone can. Coming down was much much much easier except my toes were jamming into the front of my boots. Beautiful waterfall and stream at the bottom. I felt so accomplished and alive and the end. You must do this!

Good for a ppl who do not hike and who would pay $16.5 for an adult ticket to see something that can be seen for free at different location. I believe last weekend there were over 100 cars parked plus 2 “ coach America” size busses. Over priced and crowded. We turned back , drove 2 miles down the road and hiked for free, lol

3 stars since bathroom was clean

Good spot nice varied views

Took my kids on this hike and they loved it. My daughter was so excited she went ahead and eventually out of range of our radios and lost cel service. Thankful for the Vernon PD who quickly found her, on the other side of the mountain. Never a dull moment.

Like most people, went up Red Dot, down Blue Dot which was perfect. Both are rocky trails and Red was a bit of a challenge for fairly casual hikers like us, but we loved the view at the top. It had rained a lot the day before so much of the trail was muddy and leaf-covered which made some spots slippery, so be sure to wear proper shoes.

Also this was probably the most clearly marked trail I’ve ever been on - red dots everywhere!

Took red dot up which is strenuous. I got there at 0800 and it was quiet. Trail is rocky and mostly up hill. Blue dot coming down is still rocky and that leads to a short part of Dunn field Creek trail which had a water fall and stream. Nice views all along. Had my dog also.

Always a joy!

We went up the blue dot trail and down the red dot trail. Red dot is much harder, and it has the best views.

I really liked this trail. Going up and down the hills was a workout, but the the landscape was beautiful. There were many good view points, some castle ruins, and a far away view of the NYC skyline that kept this trail interesting.

Going up 1200 ft in less than 2 miles was definitely challenging, but it does give you sense of accomplishment and very beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

I am pretty scared of heights and found this very doable. Going down the blue dot trail is much easier and not as steep.

Challenging hike with a steep start. Make sure to watch your step and wear appropriate hiking shoes. I'd suggest to start with the Red Dot Trail, since the view a the top awards you after the steep climb. After enjoying the stop at the top its a relaxing walk down along the Blue Dot Trail. Make sure to get there no later than 9 a.m. on the weekend since the parking lot will be very crowded. Enjoy!

It was a lot of fun, but it can be a challenge if you’re not used to hiking uphill.

Ascending up the hill on the blue trail was difficult we missed the red dot trail. We descended on the red dot trail. Easy to follow trail marks. Trail was wet hard very rocky. lookout was beautiful!!!

Took the Red to the Blue to the Green and then back the same route. Really beautiful scenery and great sounds of babbling brooks.

A beautiful trail, the waterfalls and "tubs" are fantastic, I have been here 4 times in the past month.The overall nearly 2 mi. hike was fairly simple though there were a few spots where the trail was crossed by running water which made it a bit tricky. Nothing a good pair of boots couldn't overcome though. I also had my 4 & 6 yr old boys with me so that made it a bit more challenging. None the less it was an easy trek and the boys and I had a blast, especially my little guy he was so gung ho and never wavered, taking point the whole time.We areactually heading there now, just waiting in the drive thru for coffee!!!! Safe trekking!
P.S. bring your walking stick it'll come in handy.

Overrated, commercialized.

It was a great hike. a couples icy spots but they were easy to get around. great viewpoints. I would recommend bringing trekking poles if you have them they help you keep you balance on some of the rocks. It would be even nicer if there was not a highway next to the mountain but it is still beautiful.

This is hiking for people who don't hike. I do like the place, it's beautiful, but i'm used to much, much tougher trails so it's more of a walk in the park to me. TONS of people (again, just not used to that) as it's a very touristy place. Place is beautiful and very easy to follow the trail. This kind of hiking is good for people with small kids.

Went here back in September. Figured Ill leave a review. First time coming and I thought it was beautiful. F.y.i it is $16 for an adult ticket. Got some awesome photos of the waterfalls. Very clean. It’s not your typical hiking trail. The trail here is more clean, not exactly difficult. Perfect for people with no experience in hiking and want to get a feel of what nature is like without having to work up a sweat. It can be crowded and you will see plenty of dogs. Overall it’s perfect for a family outing. I would definitely go again

This not your typical nature walk. It’s a sightseeing adventure filled with beautiful waterfalls. Be prepared to climb and descend steps everywhere you go. I think the $16.50 to get in is a bit pricy but this is private land and maintenance on all those steps and walkways must be expensive.

very nice hike. easy for all ages

The hike was great exercise and worth the trip. The view at the top was lovely; however the road noise was distracting for me.

My wife and I love walking here, you can make it as easy or moderate as you want. Just hike near the creek if you want a nice easy walk, or do the whole loop for a bigger hike. Hiking down the tubs area can get moderate or difficult for some.

Our car was broken into once, so be aware not to leave things in sight.

nice for everyone. tried the red one took us about 2 3 hours a lot of stairs but very beautiful. be careful where you put your foot don't kill anything

Absolutely beautiful hike challenging yet very worth it once you get to the top we took the dog and she loved it definitely worth the trip don’t miss this one

Fun!
Red up, blue down.
Beautiful. Not for kids.
Strenuous red up with great views of river; moderate blue down with lovely waterfalls.

This was a great hike. Challenging at times but the views are worth the climb. Great views on the way down!

Reasonably well maintained trails but poorly marked for sure. Keep a close eye on you map during this hike or you’ll end up off trail pretty easily. Trail offers some nice foliage and a couple of nice views at the end, but really mostly just forest the whole way.

Great views of many water falls.
