To Hike Map

Great trail with amazing views. Agree with other reviews about it being a moderate trail. Stick to the trail and you'll be fine.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Not a hike for beginners but I definitely wouldn’t rate it hard. More like moderate. All the falls are absolutely breath taking. If you’re using your phone for pictures I recommend bringing a portable charger because you will need it with the amount of pictures you’ll take! You could easily get away with wearing sneakers. Just some parts are a little slippery and there’s still patches of snow and ice. But overall 10/10 will 100% be going again soon!

Absolute breathtaking hike! Quite a challenge with most of this hike being rocky slopes. I like to do this backwards where you hike to the falls vs. seeing the falls first. Wear shoes with good grip and slip resistant. Get there early as it gets crowded, and dont forget your cameras!!!!

Great trail. I’ve done it three times since March has started. If you want more of a challenge take the trail counter clockwise starting with the blue dot trail and taking the red dot down. Much steeper inclines going up so it’s a nicer workout plus you get to see all the falls first and the hike down is much quicker after you summit

Trail was a little hard to find but the view was amazing!

Favorite NJ hike. Red dot has some rock scrambling towards the top and blue dot is very rocky to descend. Would recommend hiking boots not sneakers. Really fun hike

Rocky, steep in sections, but the view is worth the climb!

very wet this time of year be prepared to walk in 4-6 inches of water for a few miles . Feb 26. views do not disappoint. beautiful little series of falls at the bottom.

Definitely not for beginners but an amazing trail nonetheless with beautiful views.

my wife and I hike this trail a lot, mostly on the winter. Hardly used in winter but can get real busy in spring and summer . Best part of this trail is I can be on it in minutes because it's barely a 100 yard from my house.

Great hike

This was a great challenge with a huge payoff!

I went on 1.27.18 and the ice was starting to melt. Challenging but beautiful hike. when you get to the trail head stay to the left because you get a better view of the falls

It’s my favorite hike the area. It’s short, great view at the top, and waterfalls on the Dunnfield creek at the bottom. But y’all. Stop leaving trash. Orange peels, apple cores and banana peels are all still trash. Would those items be there if we weren’t? Anything you bring into the woods should come back out.

Challenging but overall a short hike. I combined this with the Sunfish Pond loop and it made for an 11 mile (+/-) hike. I chose to follow the Dunnfield Creek path on the way to Sunfish. Didn’t see a single person. This trail was definitely more adventurous with numerous stream crossings, some washed-out sections of trail, and large spots of ice. After Sunfish Pond I stayed on the AT and passed dozens of people gojng the other direction. The AT was a far easier walk back to the car. Looking forward to doing this again in he spring.

I loved this hike. It rivals my hikes in the grand canyon of Pa. Highly advise that you take the loop trail clockwise. This is a better way to see the falls and it is safer to fall going up if you slip. We went yesterday before it warmed up (28 degrees) and had to use traction spikes in certain areas. I would recommend waiting til warmer temps, but if you do it in the winter where there is ice be very careful!

Gorgeous views and a great moderate hike.

Short but steep hike with an amazing view at 0.5. ❤

First thing I’ll say is red dot to blue dot blazes is the way to make this hike. Experienced hikers with proper footwear could go up red dot and back down red dot, but much more rewarding to take blue down. Easier on the knees and a different style hike. I made the hike in icy and snowy conditions so would recommend the trail any time of year. A little less than 2 hours if you’re moving, but take your time as you will have multiple views of the gap along your way. Red dot trail is to your right as soon as you enter the parking area. If you find yourself crossing a bridge and seeing white blazes immediately, you are heading toward the blue dot trail (this is the way you will exit the woods back to the parking lot).

challenging and beautiful falls view entire way.

Very challenging hike, winter time there was so much ice on the trail we kept slipping and falling. Wear good hiking boots with traction on the bottom. We hiked the entire loop, so at the beginning of the trail we took a right. It was super steep and tough. When we got to the ridge line it put us on top of the falls then we worked our way down from there stopping at each of the different fall sites. Hard hike but definitely worth it, beautiful!!

Super fun and scenic hike with waterfalls all the way up! I would rate this more as a medium difficulty rather than hard. I went in mid-April last year which was perfect weather. Would recommend going around this time.

can you safely take this hike without crampons?
