Nice to get out for some fresh air, but I could hear cars driving nearby the whole time, and the only sign I saw on the trail was very adequate: "Where's the waterfall?"

Lame trail, most of it’s paved. Hate i wested my time.

The lanape yellow trail was just painted but the return white trail was difficult to find. beautiful even in 26° weather!

Nice trail views of NYC at one point.

The beginning of this trail was disappointing, lots of trash and two used condoms within the first mile (pack out what you pack in, people!). Seems like the trailhead is a local hangout. The trail was more Rocky than I was expecting and quite challenging towards the back half with significant uphills. That said, I had about 45 pounds on my back (I carry my two year old in a kid carrier during hikes). Once we were in a little further it was quite nice and quiet.

Amazing view

Great hike w many scenic views! Quite long and rocky for amateurs but well worth it! Water fall fell short of expectation though.

Great trail but not well marked everywhere. Hard to follow without a map or if not well familiar.

Awesome! 6 miles saw hemlock falls. Great hike, saw some cool things along the way too. Many different trails and parking on locust grove in millburn

Really nice trek. I was able to manage it as a first serious hike with my 7 year old daughter.
...A friendly dog stole her walking stick.

It is a beautiful place away from the city. Not a long drive. You can hike and if you need there is a nice waterfall you could take dip in a nice summery day. Hike along the waterfall.

Went off trail a little. Saw chipmunks, bunnies and foxes. Waterfall was definitely the highlight. 10/10 would recommend.

Very dog friendly and a great hike!

I saw pictures of this waterfall and didn't expect anything grand. I was able to find the preserve pretty easily and it had great parking areas... spread out around so you can park at different places. They have a great dog park if you want to bring your dogs. That is pretty much where the great things end. I went to the post board in the beginning to see if I could get a map... there were none so I took a picture of the one behind the glass on the board to know where I am going. There was graffiti all over the post board and the a small restroom area that was now not being used. I tried for almost and hour to figure out where to go and which way... I kept taking trails I thought were trails but weren't. I was here to see the waterfall (hemlock falls). The trails are not marked at all... the only one that was is the waterfall trail (red dot). I am not sure how I stumbled onto the red trail but I did and was very disappointed with the falls... it was a simple trickle. I knew it was nothing large so I won't put down the preserve for that. The unmarked trails makes it almost impossible to find anything. Sad to see that there is graffiti all over and that this is not taken care of. Oh well another waterfall and park to check off my list.

The trail is light but I highly suggest using the map as a reference because the markings aren't the greatest. The view & scenic shots when you get to Hemlock Falls are amazing.

Trail was ok. But it is TERRIBLY MARKED. Very easy to get lost. Overall a nice day hike if you're familiar with the trails.

This was a nice trail. Really suggest keeping a map on you just in case you get off track.

The waterfall is a sight to see.
