Nice hike although many trees are down along the route so either around, over or under was a regular decision. Beautiful waterfall at the beginning of the trail.

Good hike, more buggy than I expected. Trail is pretty well defined but in some parts it is definitely not as clear, most likely due to the storm. I went off trail two times and went back to find the trail. The fire tower has an okay view, you can’t see much with all the trees in the way. Also, some parts have trees in the way that you have to go underneath/above and it’s a fun adventure. Wish the trail was better marked at some parts, but overall I really enjoyed this short and quick hike.

Really liked this spot. Lots of parking, picnic tables, and pretty views even if you just hang around the entrance. Pretty waterfalls and rock formations, and covered bridge. I did the big loop, beginning on the covered bridge part with my 12 year old and our dog. It’s a good, moderate hike that’s a little more challenging (and fun!) due to all the downed trees and tornado damage. There are a few spots where the markings aren’t super clear - we got slightly off track towards the southern part. All in all, a great spot!

we did this as an alternative to Kettletown state park trails being closed. We were looking for an "easy" hike in the area to take my parents that were visiting for the week.
The Hike end up a tad less "easy" because of the obstacles due to the tornados that recently hit CT (5/15/18), the north part of the trail is still no clean, so many trees are blocking the trail and you have to find your way around.
But it was fun for us and them and they end up with some "adventurous" pictures :D.

This was a good trail. Really short. There were a ton of trees down due to the tornado and it made the trail impassable at parts. I did a lot of scaling! My dog was able to stay off leash since it wasn’t busy.

Beautiful trail, nice and easy. Went right after tornadoes so it was a bit of an obstacle course maneuvering trees but I would 100% go back again.

Great views from the fire tower in fall. The pond trail left is an easier hike

interesting hike with a small river gorge containing a covered bridge and some nice waterfalls. Further inland is a boardwalk and ultimately a climb to a watchtower. the loop wraps up with a descent through cool woodlands to a pond. Moderate climbs and descents and the varied sights are the highlights.

Crappy markings but good moderate trail

This was a nice moderate trail. There were two trees down blocking the path which was a minor inconvenience. Markings could be updated. Generally a nice hike.

Great walk took my grandkids age 4&6 and they loved it. Covered bridge, boardwalk and tower.

It's a nice easy hike and I loved the little watchtower. It can be done with kids.

Nice hike, pretty river/waterfall. Beautiful lake. Also a good place to go sledding with the kids when there's snow on the ground. My dog loves it.

Nice quaint waterfall. Access is easy and unrestricted. Loop trail easy. Just short uphill but any age should be able to accomplish. Just not well marked. Found myself using this apps trail map to stay on course. Signs for "tower" but somehow completely missed it.

Great 1h 30min hike with a lot of different terrain and beautiful waterfalls. We hiked with two 6 year olds, a 5 year old, 3 year old and two 2 year olds. The littlest found it hard and we ended up carrying most of the time.

It was okay, part of the trails were not marked towards the end so it got confusing. Good place overall though

I went more to hang out, and it was a 90+ degree day, so I stopped often to enjoy the scenery and relax. This trail is very beautiful, from the waterfall and the stream, the watchtower, and the covered bridge. The trees provide quite a bit of sun coverage, which is nice for me since I'm fair skinned, and the little sun spots on the water are so gorgeous.... There are a lot of uphill rocky slopes so if I were to go alone it would make a perfect workout!

This is one of my go to spots. If you do the big loop it can give you a pretty good work out. It has alot of different elements from the waterfalls, covered bridge, brook, steep climb and very woodsy. It is busy closer to all the activity and get quieter as you hike more in the wooded area. I do the start of the loop at the covered bridge and come out on the other side of the pond.
