A gift from the Riddell family of Colliersville, Robert V. Riddell State Park offers more than 1,000 acres of forested woodlands located in the Susquehanna River Valley. The park is easily accessible, straddling I-88 in Otsego County, and is approximately 20 miles from Cooperstown, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The park offers a variety of family-friendly passive recreational opportunities. As part of an extensive statewide trail network, it is a preferred destination for hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Additional activities include bird-watching, snowshoeing and fishing. Schenevus Creek, a Class A trout stream which leads to the Susquehanna River, crosses the north side of the park. This land was formerly cultivated for agricultural purposes. Hiking trails allow visitors to explore the wooded southern portion of the park.

gradual uphill hike, easy terrain, but challenging. there are alot of water run-offs, so its very wet in general. one point you have to cross a stream, and to get to the pond at the end, you have to go through a marsh/ bog, so you have to improvise a little bit which made it interesting. the waterfall is on the way to the pond, which is clearly marked, and is worth the hike.

Not bad in the beginning of the spring but can get pretty buggy and over grown. There is a waterfall off the trail but can be hard to find.
