At .8 mile crossed over to the left side of the creek. As the right side is a two lane rocky path the left side is unattended. Marks at the beginning and that is it for about .5 miles. It a rock scrabble. It was hard. AllTrails was a great help. This was s beautiful hike. Mostly shade.

Went there on a wimp... nice area with varying surroundings and natural life.... can’t believe I didn’t read the previous review thoroughly so kinda stuck in wet low land in the last mile or so on south loop... think would’ve been ok if I wore hiking boots instead of sneakers... oh well.

And pls spray plenty of mosquito repellent... otherwise you would’ve eaten alive like me! (I did spray but it didn’t work so maybe not enough)

Great trail for kids. Well groomed and marked. Falls were beautiful.

Very nice trail. Part of the path (right before doodletown) is unmarked. I had downloaded the map here and followed via GPS.

pretty trail. I'd say moderate to easy. some of the inclines are ragged so bring ankle tough boots. if you're interested in seeing the falls take the "blue" side as opposed to the "white" side as its much closer. if facing the mountain, street to your back, take the trail entrance to your far left. I took the one on the right and falls wasnt until the end of my hike. falls are quaint, not spectacular. just very pretty

The first part of Falls Trail that goes beside the stream is very rocky, wet and slippery, with moss covered stones on a fairly steep slope down to the stream. Once past the falls, the trail becomes easier. I continued on to Hardwood Trail, which was wet in several places and hard to follow. The GPS tracker on the app really helped to keep me going in the right direction. All in all, a moderately difficult hike that was a good morning’s activity.

A really nice trail with a lot of variety: a woodsy walk along the creek that opens up to a lovely lake (lots of people swimming, though they're not supposed to), then a slightly more strenuous hike up Diamond Mountain, where you quickly get enough elevation to have really nice views. Warning, though: the Blue Trail down is steep, sometimes challenging (I had a 9-year-old with me), requires good footwear, and it's not always clearly marked.

The scramble on Bonticou Ascent trail is like an adult’s playground. It was more challenging than Breakneck Ridge for me, but the actual scramble was the perfect length—not too short, not too long. Just right. Loved it. And the view is gorgeous when you get to the top. The way down is laughably easy, but a great break for the arms and legs. I can’t wait to do this one again, and hopefully with friends next time. You def want a hiking partner to capture a cool shot when you get to the crag.

Loved that it wasn’t crowded. Esp for A Saturday :) Serene afternoon day hike #twothumbsup☮️

loved this rock scramble. the view and white rock at the top is fantastic. great views.

Fantastic hike - no rock climbing experience or special gear required but the entire hike is a climb ranging from steep to moderate. The view at the top is fantastic and absolutely worth the hike! The kids loved scrambling up and down rocks. Almost the entire hike is in the shade so relatively cool and nice breeze at the top. About 4 miles round trip, took about 2 hours with a couple short stops. Trailhead is literally off the side of the road so follow directions and use the facilities before you get there! No restroom or facilities at or near the hike.

We started on Anthony's Nose entrance as marked on this map, and the view from Anthony's Nose was pretty nice. However, it came relatively early in the trail. The rest of the trail was not as exciting. The trail itself is pretty challenging though. I would recommend starting at Camp Smith and finishing at Anthony's Nose rather than what's described here.

We enjoyed it. Did with 2 children - 7 and 4 yrs old - and a small dog. The dog needed to be carried in a backpack for the Blue part of the trail and 4 yr old was exhausted by the end. Took us 4 hours. I recommend doing in reverse so you do the steep part up (white) in the beginning and go UP the rock scramble (blue), not down. Note when you switch to the orange trail from blue it's not well marked. We had to guess based on the map and go down a ways to see the marker.

Way too many different little trails, easy to get lost. 2 and a half hours total, easy/easy-moderate, very few steep hills. Good markings. Good amount of dogs (must be leashed).

a go-to walk for me. this trail allows add extra loops to make this as long a hike as you'd want

I love this trail!!! So much fun! Make sure you have good hiking shoes.

Perfect outing with two adventurous, athletic kids. It was a long walk for the 8yo, but she didn’t get overtired until the very end. All the rock-scrambling and waterfalls kept her happily engaged. We did it clockwise and took out time, stopping to snack a few times and wander off trail a bit. It was about a 3.5 hour endeavor. Highly recommend!

Great trail and lots of shade!

Nice quiet trail, the trail and white blazes weren’t the easiest to follow at times but it wasn’t bad. Neat little falls and water along the way but the trail tightens up and gets rocky at that point. All in all worth the hike.

Loved this trail. My kids were apprehensive once we saw the rock face, but they went for it and ended up loving it.

Fantastic reward at the end. Had to take some breaks because rocks were wet and slippery but definitely a trail you have to do.

One of my fave spots with the pup though signage is confusing - no blazes just names and signs are wonky so I always get lost. Always. But I always find my way out eventually too. Great river playing for Dogs too. Easy enough but a beautiful space

Very nice walk. Ripe blueberries at the top (in July), beautiful wide vistas and one cool rock face that has to be climbed (its easy though). The loop misses the "Cascade of slid," but only by a 100 feet or so, make a left at the Red-Orange junction and check it out before continuing on the red/orange (opposite direction).

My wife and I came in late around 1pm and took us a while to find a parking place.
The trail is a bit challenging and was planning 2-3 hours while it ended up with over 4. But we had lots of fun.

From Pamona to Reservoir and back. Not the loop. The “Red Arrow” route has been slightly changed on the ground and differs from the AllTrails version. Off by a few hundred feet in some places, but still generally the same junctions.

This trail has it all! I highly recommend the rock scramble as it affords you a view of the valley that is remarkable. Once you are at the top, you can take a less steep trail down. It's close to New Paltz where you can go after for a post hike meal or shopping.

Meadow with flowers followed by the quaint falls makes a nice little hike. Beautiful July morning to be outside.
