Easy hike, there are clear trail markings and they are easy to follow. Falls lack luster but nice easy walk with one small section of elevation gain.

The trail is not well marked why I don’t recommend following the AllTrail map. We landed somewhere in the woods and returned. I would love to finish the trail because of natural beauty and tranquility. Bring plenty of bug spray because I never have seen so many mosquitos in one area.

Straight forward out and back with a few side trails. Pretty dry overall and would be a great trail running spot. The housing foundations are pretty cool.

So much to see! I will be going back to explore more of the area.

Really cool trail close to home. Old foundations, waterfall, beaver pond. And a large balancing rock. Trail marked (white ) after pond.

fun trails, cool landmarks. slightly hard to find

Beautiful, but falls were only a trickle (end of September.)

I would not recommend using the AllTrails app for this trail. If you follow the signs to Orris Falls or Big Bump you'll be fine, but if you actually try to follow the map on the app you'll be off-trail trudging through thick woods. I tried several times to course correct and follow the app, which up until this trail has been excellent, but to no avail. I wanted to do the full 8+ miles the app laid out, but it just wasn't possible. Got frustrated and ending up Mt. Agamenticus instead, which was far better.

Great trail...
Went in the winter so it was very icy and couldn't get through parts but definitely going back this summer!

Quiet, great walk with a dog or on horse back. Falls are pretty cool...almost missed it because of poor trail head marking. Tried fishing, no luck.

It was a nice clear trail, falls could be heard but not seen. That was disappointing.

Pretty walk, falls difficult to find. Pleasant trail.

Moderate difficulty, poorly marked. Will be back!

Don't blink or you will miss the falls. Don't expect great views. Trail was easy to follow.

Entered from Thurrell and ran through to Emery's Bridge road hitting most of the side trails. Didn't go further than Big Bump as the trail was under water at the power lines. Trails were nicely groomed and were great for running without a lot of roots. Markings were hard to see and the trail was difficult to follow in places, blazes could use repainting.

Trails could be better marked, could not pick up on one portion of the trail.

Nice hike with interesting history. The falls were great and balancing rock was wicked! A little confusing as there were no markings on trees.

We checked this trail out Aug 28. Its a really nice trail that is maintained well. We never saw the falls and did the whole loop. But we haven't had any rain either. There are all sorts of different side trails to go one. In really good condition to trail run.

I thought this was a lovely trail through some pretty marshes, some interesting glacial erratics and a deep ravine with a little brook running through it. There was even a bit of history with the foundation of the Orris homestead. I was thrown off by the trail mileage on this app as stating that it was 8.1 miles round trip (as it turns out it's much less to get to the falls and balancing rock and back). Speaking of, the balancing rock was a really cool feature! It totally made the walk worth it! We never did make it to the falls though(we were really questioning how far it was)--perhaps next time. Another plus was that we only saw a few other hikers there. You really have to keep an eye out for the tiny "parking lot" and sign and there's only room for a few cars, but it's likely that won't be an issue--this seems to be a little-known gem.
