Fantastic little trail that leads to pretty waterfalls. My dogs and I had a blast playing in the water this morning. I couldn’t believe we were the only ones there. Truly a hidden gem. We’ll definitely be back!!

Great trail! It seemed to be hit heavily by recent storms (as did other trails in the area) and the path is now lined with downed trees. The access to the two ponds trail is also blocked by downed trees. It had rained the night before and there were parts that were very muddy. This trail was used for what appeared to be school or camp groups and there were very noisy groups of children. However, these things will not deter me from using this trail again.

This was a really nice trail. Definitely “moderate” with some steep sections in each direction. We went after a rainy day and it was mostly dry with a few muddy sections. The park service has done a great job clearing the trail of fallen trees from this winter’s storm.

Very nice. Well worth it

Beautiful area, and the falls were spectacular. A recent storm this year made a mess of the trees but fortunately the falls weren't really effected.

Very short hike, the falls are beautiful!

Trail completely obliterated by downed trees. Literally HUNDREDS. You have to bushwhack a lot to get through.

Great hike! Nice views of mountains and waterfall. Recommended.

All by myself it was a short but extremely pleasant hike with the exception of the litter thrown about but those who claim to love the outdoors and treat it with total disrespect.

Awesome!! Pretty steep climb up to the B.P. Campsites. Beautiful views of PA from there. We stayed overnight one night there then hiked to sunfish pond and down the Dunnsfield Trail back to our trucks. A lot more snow up there than we originally planned and with windchill the temp dropped below 20 degrees. Dunnsfield trail was much more fun and much nicer scenery with the waterfalls. There’s 5 creek crossings on the way back that were sometimes very slippery so wear some good waterproof hiking boots!! Overall,we loved it and would definitely do it again!!!

Absolutely gorgeous in the winter.

I started with the Mount Tammany loop and combined they made for an 11 mile (+/-) hike. I chose to follow the Dunnfield Creek path on the way to Sunfish. Didn’t see a single person. This trail was definitely more adventurous with numerous stream crossings, some washed-out sections of trail, and large spots of ice. After Sunfish Pond I stayed on the AT and passed dozens of people gojng the other direction. The AT was a far easier walk back to the car. Looking forward to doing this again in he spring.

Beautiful trails between the pine trees. Even though they were frozen the waterfalls were still gorgeous.

Be careful, the road leading to the trail is narrow and winding and has low visibility around curves. Definitely use caution so you don’t get into an accident

I followed the AT to Sunfish Pond and back the Dunnfield Creek to the AT. There were no tracks on the Dunnfield Creek trail but my own and various animals. It was hard to follow in the beginning since the blazes are on the rocks which were snow covered. Then they are lime green on trees with the light green mold LOL. Eventually you find the creek and just follow it. I had no idea you have to cross the creek 5 times though. Luckily I had on Yaxtrax and had trekking poles. The water was flowing good and the rocks were very icy and slippery with moss. Great hike though and Sunfish Pond is beautiful!

very happy with this trail. Very well marked trail. It started as orange/white blaze, to orange only, ending as orange/blue blaze mark trail. Very quiet, only saw two other hikers. The walk way down to the falls made a steep decent easier. The falls are beautiful! Straight back up the mountain to the top for some beautiful views. I watched a red tailed hawk sore for quite some time and spotted a grouping of cedar wax-wings! GORGEOUS birds. There were a few sitting benches which made resting very enjoyable. Highly recommend this trail. It is definitely a moderate rating considering the steep decent and accent to and from the falls.

Loved this trail. I thought it was easy. Had a stairway down to the waterfall. There were about 10 feet that had a kind of scary dropoff, for me anyway, probably not for most people. It was really pretty and peaceful. We went on a weekday.

love love love this Trail! I park at Millbrook Village cross the street and follow a trail to a picnic area. I continued over Earth bridge and made a left when I got to the road. A short way up there's, an entrance to a trail on the left. I followed that and eventually found the markings of the Van Campen Glen Trail. Once I reach the parking area at the end of the Van Campen Trail, I went up to the road and across the street to the Hamilton Ridge trail. Quite a ways up the trail there's the Orchard trail to the right and that brings you back down across from Millbrook. You can also take Hamilton to the Pioneer Trail. The Pioneer Trail meets up with the Hamilton Trail eventually.

Trail was extremely sketchy in late november. It look like parts of it were about to be eroded. I felt unsafe. I do not recommend.

Great hike for kids/ new to hiking explorers! Not too strenuous and well maintained (not rocky) trails. Beautiful views and gorgeous falls (go down the stairs - it's a climb to get back up to the trail but so doable and worth it). Plenty of benches and rocks to stop and rest while you enjoy the scenery.

Fantastic hike with lots of beautiful things to see. Have done this hike multiple times and brought friends. I combine the falls and cliff trail.

Wonderful maintained trail with terrific views and beautiful water falls. Parking is very easy as the trail is across the parking lot of PEEC.

Definitely a trail to do, Sunfish Pond is something to see. Did Appalachian Trail up to pond and came back threw Dunnfield trail...trail is rough in the beginning..very rocky but gets better.

Beautiful, beautiful spot. The waterfalls here are absolutely gorgeous. Totally worth the visit.

Nice trail, a bit crowded and rocky. Sunfish pond is nice, but the highlight was the backpackers campground before the pond. Great views from all the campsites.

First visit today, absolutely beautiful trails are marked and there is easy access for an old man like me. Other reviews were very helpful I plan on a return visit

Family and friends went on the AT up to Sunfish Pond and back down the Dunnfield Hollow Trail down to complete the loop (est. 7.6 mi.) Fun time, the glacial pond is very cool. There is a cairn collection on the NW side of the pond. If you can go see it. All in all solid trail.

Hackers was cool. I combined Raymondskill falls, cliff trail and Hackers falls into one hike. I had a blast. Here is my trip report.

Great trail for family hikes. Took our 9 and 7 year olds and they had a great time.
