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

Love this trail. Hiked twice — once in the spring and once in the middle of summer. Would like to try again in the fall. Can be very crowded, but the falls are breathtaking and worth it. Good idea to bring bug spray on this hike during the summer.

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!

Beautiful trail. I have been here 4 times in the past month,3 of them with my 2 boys, 4 & 6 yrs old. We loved it, what fun. The trek to about an extra hour with the boys as opposed to going it alone. Fairly easy over all but a few tricky spots where water crossed the trail, but nothing a good pair of boots can't handle. Bring you walking stick also it will come in handy at points. Happy hiking!

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.

This trail was surprisingly fun with some decent incline and rock scrambles. Crowds are no joke but around the middle it was very thinned out (spent about 20 minutes just waiting to get to the gate of the park... then had to follow someone leaving in order to park). Annual passes to great falls are 30$ so might be worth it for people who plan on coming back a couple times. GORGEOUS fall colors.

I went on November 3rd 2018. Fall colors were still there. It was a good hike. Falls was awesome.

Heads up: LOWER PORTION OF TRAIL FLOODED 11/4/2018

Great trail and really surprising that this is in the city. It's good for a leisurely walk, running, or biking. You can take smaller trails that are off of the main path if you want a more challenging hike.

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!

This is obviously a great hike, though it can be crowded at times. Awesome falls just about the entire hike. It took us about 4 hours to do the loop on a less crowded day. It can be slippery so use caution. Must do hike and IMHO late October early November is the best time.

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!!!

The trail is open and is beautiful. Two large waterfalls, easily accessible. Highly recommended.

the trail is very well marked.
it begins with a boulder field where you have to be a mountain goat and then it turns just plain rocky.

Trail is beautiful! Falls vary in size but all are great. Just hiked today and leaves made for slippery rocks and trails but the scenery was perfect! Great fall hike for sure. I will definitely return. My German Shepherd who is almost 11 years old pretty much ran this whole trail which means I did as well. Also lots of detours into the water for fun! Great trail for dogs (if larger in size and in good shape) lots of well marked trails and plenty of spots to step aside to let people pass. Highly recommend this trail! Experience it because it's worth it!

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. 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. So far we have returned once since then and I am 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.

Opens 10/31/18 at 1pm... Not a trick but certainly a treat.

Beautiful trail along the creek. We enjoyed the beautiful sight of the nature and pleasant sounds from the creek. Tree roots and rocks made it a bit challenging because we had to watch our steps quite often. At the end of the trail is the dam, picnic tables, and a nice playground.

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.

We went with a group that all had different skill levels. The rocks and tree roots made it more difficult for a person with a mild ankle injury but we went slow. Toward the end, there was a fresh downed tree so we didn't complete the last .2 miles. Beautiful, fun trail. There were several groups of people but it never felt crowded. Like another reviewer wrote, it feels like being in another country.

One of the best trails i have ever been on! St. Pete's is a very great hiking spot that has many different trails all throughout. Plus if you get over heated there is a water hole down near all the Boulders and rocks! If you havent gone you need to go!

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.
