We loved this hike! The falls are beautiful and the trails very interesting. It ended up being 4.5 miles after going to see Mullet falls and Denton falls. Be careful not to miss the side trails to the falls! You will not see any water alls if you follow the route on all trails however the map at the parking area clearly shows where they are.

Trails are well maintained, a bit rocky at points. Beautiful views of the falls and the river.

Omg the mosquitoes were everywhere. If you stopped for a picture they swarmed you. We gave up and left. It was a 10 minute hike but we itched got an hour.

Great trail for kids. Well groomed and marked. Falls were beautiful.

July 1 2018 - 97 and humid in area.

A nice trail, though very buggy. I did not get any ticks but another in my group got 2. Trail is mostly shaded, good for a hot day. Did not find any waterfalls.

Be sure to really know the route in your head and look at the map on alltrails in detail. Even though the title is "Blue Loop", you actually only take the blue trail for ~1.2 miles, then to loop back you get onto the red trail.

We followed the blue trail for ~3.3 miles before we got nervous that we had done something wrong. Luckily we turned back because the blue trail would have taken us farther and farther away from the trailhead, and the sun was setting.

There is a small yellow "trail" which goes down to the neversink river which is nice if you have a few extra minutes towards the start of the hike.

Beautiful hike. Trail was wide and well marked up until the end. Then, I could not seem to find the waterfall. If I had more time I would have explored a bit more. Maybe next time. Also, I was wearing shorts and picked up three ticks in my legs. Be aware and enjoy.

Loved the hike to the falls but the comment on ticks was spot on. 2nd most on any hike we have ever done. Early in season so I don't know why. My dog loves all hikes and this was no exception. Well marked and maps in kiosk before you enter.

Great hike! The weather was perfect. A little overgrown in spots but not too bad. Dogs loved it! Will be coming back!

Nice trail, a pretty overgrown at parts. Good workout

There were some fallen trees we had to climb over which added an adventure aspect but some might find difficult. We couldn't find the big falls some directions would be nice but all trails were well marked. The hike was private we saw only 2 people leave as we entered. Definitely check for ticks though, I had a tick on my side after leaving. We would go back to look for the falls.

Was a beautiful day and nice walk. Up hills and downhills. Was disappointed didn't see the falls. But maybe I went on the wrong trail.

2 stars because my boyfriend and I got lost for over 2+ hours because the trails were so poorly marked! The trail NEVER loops which confused us and the trial marks (blue, red yellow) would just stop out of no where.
At first, the trail was great and the trail marks were fine. But as we got deeper, we noticed that the trail never loops, the trail marks disappeared & the trail just ends into nothing.

A lot of the yellow & red marked trails were not groomed in a long time so trails were extremely narrow. Wouldn't recommended this place.

first time to this hike. beautiful area overall. cool rocks to hangout on down on the neversink. due to spending to much time down at the neversink and the extreme heat. i didnt make it to the falls. but i will be going again as soon as i can. best part is this area is only 15mins from my house. i took the "blue trail east". terrain and ascends and descends were tougher than expected although very doable when you take you time and pace yourself. overall i loved it

Took our dog on this hike and it was beautiful! Trails were lightly trafficked and the mountain had several different terrains. We would definitely go back!

(ALERT-TICKS) April 29 2016: We walked the trail today and everything positive everyone has written about this trail is true and we enjoyed much of it. The yellow trail walk to the river is beautiful and we ate lunch there.
1)The entire hike was much too long for my kids who are beginning hikers and young. There are many side trails to explore but we felt we didn't have time with their low energy.
2) we thought we heard gun shots as we walked up from mullet river about half way through the loop.
3) My husband found a tick on his leg while at a stop and I saw one near my daughters shoe on the ground when I went to help her tie it. This was on the last mile of the red trail loop. We checked ourselves on the spot, before getting in the car and then again before a shower and I found a tick behind my sons ear.
I feel confident that we removed the tick properly and that it had not been on him very long but we will watch the area and check in with pediatrician on Monday.
NOTE: The red trail loop in this area at this time seems quiet infested with ticks. I've never seen a tick on a person (only pets) nor have I seen them just on the ground as I did today, so please be careful and dress properly if you choose to do the entire loop.

This trail is definitely scenic with the opportunity to see a few waterfalls. We went in February so snow was melting which made some parts slippery so you should definitely wear appropriate footwear and take caution. There are some parts where you will need to go across a small stream of water via rocks. At a moderate walking pace it took us 2 hours to complete the whole trail and come back. Parking area is very small and only allows about 5-7 cars to park at once. There are several inclines, the longest being right as you come back and are coming to the end of the trail-- I would rate th difficulty a medium overall.

This is a great loop. Don't miss an offshoot down and back to the Neversink River and definitely don't miss the Mullet Falls. The falls are truly what makes this 4 mile loop worthwhile. It really isn't marked. Follow my recorded track of you want to make sure you get to it (off the trail down and back). I'm also uploading a picture where I mark t with a red arrow. Hate reading that people missed these great falls!
