I came to do Raymondskills with my dog, but they don't allow pets. Just service dogs. So I did this trail instead. I'm glad I did, it were beautiful. The climb up to Hackers Falls is a little steep, but doable. The falls were cool, we encountered some teenagers swimming there. They were cool. I came back down on the Cliffs trail and it was awesome. It literally follows the edge of the cliff on the Delaware Gap. The views here were the best I had in all my trip up here. Lots of pictures. Do these trails!

After the stunning hikes on the Pennsylvania side of the Gap, this trail was a bit of a let down. No creek, no river, no waterfalls. It was just okay. It's a gradual climb up a hill to a junction with another trail. That's it. The drive on Old Mine Road was not worth it, full of dangerous pot holes that were not too kind on my car. If I had known beforehand, I would have stayed on the Pennsylvania side instead.

It was very nice views but definitely a tourist attraction as well. The trail itself is fenced off and to view the falls you’re standing on man made decks.

Great hike, little crowded. We went on a Saturday and the weather was perfect. A lot of Boy Scouts on trail in big groups, they come from the Mohican outdoor center right there. Little rocky but great 360° view at the top. Got to dunk are soar feet in the cold creek at the end. So overall fun hike!

Nice moderate trail, parking is limited, the trail is along highways and parts of it could be rocky and there is three points with good views. Saw a couple of snakes on the trail, and moderate amount of mosquitoes.

Nice trail! Turned it into a loop!

rocky, pretty much ends just past radio tower with real nice overlook to left unless u want to continue on Appalachian trail.

muddy today but great hike

Hiked this trail yesterday. up the AT back the alternate route. this was a great hike and will do again.

Great ~3 mile loop trail - completed it in about 1.5 hours. It is worth doing the short off-shoot to see the waterfall. When we went there were still a few trees down around the falls, but still beautiful. Well marked. Few lookouts, benches, and an old stone fireplace randomly in the middle.

Highly recommend this trail especially if you have a dog. Went on 5/7 during the day and only saw people in the parking lot but not on the trail. Took my 12 year old doggo who loved to take in a dip in every body of water we found plus it was easy enough for him to complete. Saw some bear tracks and other animal droppings near the lake, lots of frogs, and the birds brought the place alive. Very well maintained and marked. Perfect for a trail run as well!

A little rocky, but nice length, a good workout and an incredible view from Large Pile of Rocks at the midpoint. Trail was in good condition and generally easy to follow.

Great view, I did the whole loop, trail well marked. Not hard at all, pretty easy for beginners.I love it

Really nice moderate trail. This trail offers everything. Ponds, river, waterfall, views, trails through forest and all nicely marked.

beautiful trail, marked very well and easy to navigate. Amazing view at the waterfall, steep climb after waterfalls but besides that very moderate hike. clean park and very informative with maps.

Nice leisurely trail. Take the Appalachian Trail (white markers) up and back for optimal views and terrain.

Nice loop. Has it all... streams, ponds, well-marked, lovely ecosystems enriched by interesting factoids with the trail guide. Spring rains made the falls all the more beautiful!

We hiked about half the trail. It's often very close to the road and one section of it, surprisingly, is a road. I was upset and embarrassed because there is no forewarning that there will suddenly be motorized vehicles on the trail. This trail would be much more suited to mountain biking than hiking.
