Good challenging hike with the kids (8 & 13). Was steep at some points and rocks were slippery. Gorgeous view of lake. Saw geckos, chipmunks, bear tracks.

Awesome time! Beautiful scenery! Some really steep inclines, not for the fainthearted.

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.

Awesome trail!!! Steep in the beginning and end but smooth all around.

Awesome trail!!! Steep in the beginning and end but smooth all around.

The hike itself was great and the falls are very nice. There are no big scenic overlooks or things like that as you are mostly hiking through the woods. I will say the trails, for the most part, are poorly marked and can be confusing as there are intersections of other trails which can easily throw someone off. Also, I do not know who is responsible for maintaining the road in to the parking lot but that is inexcusable. It was almost undrivable with an AWD SUV. Shame on whomever is stealing money there because they are not improving the roads in even a little bit.

Loved every minute of this hike!! Waterfall was breathtaking, and the hike was awesome( a bit scary If you go alone)..the drive there was cool too; many things to see;however there was no service most of the hike, but besides that pretty worth it.

Beautiful view of the waterfall at the very beginning. Steep inclines from the start, great workout. I'll definitely be back to explore more soon!
