This is a great hike, starts off with a beautiful view at the base of the falls where you start your hike. The first mile is difficult and where you find 95% of your vertical. But once you get through that you can enjoy an easy hike and relax at beautiful lake at about mile 2.5. The first mile of the hike has a lot of traffic but get past it and enjoy the rest.

This is the tallest waterfall in NJ and it is right next to the road. Next to it is a great trail that takes you through a forest and leads to the Appalachian Trail. Tough in places but cool. Check out my full review along with some things to look out for.

Good hike. Caution: Don't take the south side mountain road, take the north side. The roads are horrible.

Enjoyed a great day swimming with kids at Hemlock. The hike in from the falls is fairly steep and rocky. It levels out around the lake and then becomes steep again up the Orange trail to the AT and back down to the Blue trail.

The trails in general are well marked and wide. There are a few questionable spots but we navigated without any major problems.

Cleanliness is an issue with this area as it is heavily visited by tourists to the falls. Bring a bag to help carry out empty beverage containers and other trash.

solid hike,easier than expected it to be. Did miss the turns after the lake but thanks to two ladies with a cute lab we were able to find the right trail.
