Hiking

We did it backwards like the few before us so we could hit the falls at the end. Highly worth it though the first half mile was a steep climb. Would do it this was again!

Trail is lined with mugwort. Take your mask off and get some fresh air. Then pick some mugwort leaves, rub them between your hands, bring it up to your nose, take a deep breath in and relax. Bergamot and many other beautiful flowers were in bloom along the trail as well.

Hiking

We took this hike counter clockwise, starting with the cliffs and ending with the falls for swimming. The trail start for the hike was a bit difficult to find, but that first uphill climb was the hardest push, and it was an easy hike from there! Jumping in the waterfall pool was a wonderful break from the heat, and a lovely place to eat lunch, and not too crowded on a Tuesday afternoon.

I began this trail counter clockwise which I think was more difficult, but better because the falls were the reward at the end. The first 1/2 mile was extremely narrow and overgrown, and I walked through at LEAST a hundred spider webs. I picked up a stick and waved it in front of me like a crazy person to avoid walking into more (it only helped a little). This trail was beautiful and peaceful, and there was an awesome view at the beginning. The waterfall was also amazing. State troopers were there when I got there, giving citations out to people jumping into the pool from the cliff above. I was glad, though, because I got some really good pictures that would've instead been filled with swimmers. When I got home, I found the trail on Instagram, and apparently there's another bigger waterfall that I didn't even know was here that I missed out on. I'll have to come back and find that one. Bring bug spray and carry a stick!

Generally easy hike to first falls. Things start to get fun and challenging if you keep following the trail past the first falls. And it’s definitely worth it to keep going!

This trail is very difficult and dangerous. Please be cautious. The waterfall is lovely.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Hike begins and ends at Buttermilk Falls, due to COVID access road to parking lot is closed. You need to park your car close to the bridge to avoid parking ticket but it is close to 1.4 mile to the trail head which is Buttermilk Falls. The waterfall is beautiful, make sure to plan your trip 2 days rainfall for nice view of water falls. First one mile is very steep with loose gravel and rocks. Once you reach the t-junction (wood trail) you have option to continue on Blue trail (left) or Yellow trail (right). Blue trail is very steep 0.4 mile hike with lot of rock climbing and then 0.9 mile to Hemlock pond trail. From there you can follow the trail loop around the lake. Yellow trail is gradual increase in the beginning and at the end it is bit steep increase in elevation and rocky path. This path is approx 1.6 mile to Hemlock pond trail. We decided to take the Yellow path on the way up and Blue path coming down. It took 2 hours to reach Hemlock pond and after to reach down from around 1 and half hour. Lake is very relaxing, if you are interested you can add Crater lake to the hike which is around 1.1 mile of paved path around lake. We saw couple of rattle snakes on the way up on Blue trail.

Very nice easy trail. Super good for biking. It wasn’t very crowded at all and we visited on a Saturday morning. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an easy nature walk or a bike ride

HikingBugsGreat!No shadeOver grown

There is no fee. It was easy to hike. Clean/clear pathway. All flat land. Beautiful views of flowers, berries, butterflies, birds, buddies, mountain cliff, cornfields, etc. View of River too but you have to walk through heavy woods without a clear walking path. We saw some people swimming. Be careful because there are a lot of bears. You can ride your bike and bring your dogs. The bugs were a little annoying though. Wear sunblock. There are some shady areas but there are also some areas that aren’t shady at all.

This was definitely not for beginners. Very difficult. Some areas you can’t tell where the trails are. We made our own way through a lot of the way. Also, slopey. So be extra careful. Other than that, the falls make the hike worth it.

Fun hike, some really good lookouts on the cliff trail. Recommend going past the falls and find a couple of smaller isolated pockets where you can enjoy the water without all the people. The falls were a little too overcrowded. Parking can be crazy on the weekends so head out early

Hiking

Easy hike - less than 3 miles. We give it a 3.5 because of some trash and some abandoned buildings, golf course and some not-so-mindful people. But overall it’s a nice view and less traffic if you head straight to the cliff walk: You enter across from the parking lot. Very little parking! We came on Friday around 1pm. The lot was full but we still found a space. This hike is not well marked so just follow the read outline above or do what we did and enjoyed veering off at the cliff walk to see more of the view (just follow the black dotted lines). When you enter (across the street from the parking lot, you can go right or left (to the cliff trails or the falls). I highly recommend going right to wards the cliffs. It’s barely up hill. Anyone could do it. Walk there first then it’s almost all down hill ending with the pond and the water fall. You can swim in both. However the swimming hole at the waterfall was full of people who could care less about COVID19. That was aggravating and a bunch of city people who could care less about nature (blasting music, graffiti, trash, no masks...). However they mostly drive in and walk straight to the falls. When you hit the cliff walk, there’s almost no one, it’s beautiful and peaceful and great views. Keep kids & dogs away from edge. It’s safe and 20feet or more from the path. I swam in the pond and it was lovely. The park rangers have done a great job at cleaning up the trash. Just do the earth and everyone a favor and TAKE ALL YOUR TRASH OUT WITH YOU - maybe even pick up some other trash you see along the way. It won’t kill ya, just bring some hand sanitizer ;-) Enjoy. Not bad for a hike not far from nyc. THE VIEW IS NICE and lots of little froggies.

HikingGreat!

This trail was amazing! First mile is very easy to the first waterfall. Many noted (and it’s true) that it’s hard to find the trail to go beyond the first waterfall. If you go about 25’ back on the trail from the first waterfall, to your left uphill is a trail up and it is SO WORTH IT!! It takes you another mile under and over fallen trees, up steep inclines and along many other waterfalls along the way. I will absolutely be back to enjoy this hike again. So good!

Nice well maintained trail to the first waterfall. I wasn’t able to find where trail continues from there.

Hiking

I've done this hike before, starting from the Raymondskill Falls parking lot. But that parking lot fills up quickly. So I checked out starting from the Milford Knob parking lot. The Milford Knob parking lot is larger and not as used, so there should most always be available parking, no matter the time of day. Based on this experience, I suggest parking at Milford Knob and leaving Raymondskill available for people that can't/don't want to walk much and just want to see Raymondskill Falls. Other than that, the hike was as before - great waterfall! (Raymondskill), a very nice waterfall with swimming hole (Hackers) and great views at the observation points along the Cliff Trail.
