Pretty trail but right now it is still under 2-12" of slushy snow in spots. With the melting snow, the length of the trail is flooded so if you don't have waterproof boots, forget about it. Additionally, the younger trees along the trail are still bowed over with icy, compacted snow, closing off the trail in places and forcing you to detour. As the anow melts, yiu can see the amount of damage done to the forest by our 3 Nor'easters. Be prepared to climb over fallen trees, and trip over the multitude of fallen branches. The rapid and waterfalls are ronning fast and hard, so the sunshine and the sound of water certainly made the hike worthwhile.

It could be a great trail but it is heavily overgrown and very rocky.

Great hike

Prettier as the sun began to lower in the sky.

Very scenic, easy hike. Take your camera, beautiful mini falls.

Beautiful hike on a hot day. But having just rained the day before, the rocky trails were slippery. Better to stay on the north side of the creek , drier and not as muddy, to get to the trail - from the parking lot ( on the hill above the pond) turn right before you cross the bridge below the dam . My dogs loved the many spots they could walk into the cool pools of water in the creek. Oh and bring your camera!

Pretty trail, but poorly marked along the leg that takes you back to the lake. So really only the loop part along the creek is worth following.

Definately muddy, but a quiet and beautiful walk.

Great place to walk, but definately needs some grooming.

Beautiful walk. Really kid friendly walk that was easy enough for my 4 and 5 year olds with a lot of scenery for the adults. Good rocks for the kids to scramble and climb if they choose too!

great hike. did it after a rainy day so it was wet but overall very good trail. well marked. Took my dog, very pet friendly. great views of the falls.

This trail was fantastic! Very scenic, lots to see. Not at all difficult to walk, although it has a decent amount of roots. Not too long, goes in a full loop which is great. Trail is easily marked and easy to follow. I can't wait to take my 8 year old sister here. Superb.

Decent trail. Long. Not very scenic. Very rocky at the beginning. I went with my girlfriend at around 11, but once it hits noon it gets very buggy. Not at all hard to follow, very wide and easily marked trail. Unfortunately, not too many places to stop and rest if you need it.

It was an enjoyable hike. It was very peaceful and I was the only one. Beautiful birds chirping and lots of greenery. There are some parts that are rocky and muddy, others are a nice hike. It is a snowmobile trail, so follow the wide trail. It ends up at the far side of the lake, and you have to push your way through some bushes if you want to get to the shore side, but overall, great hike!

Grew up camping at Promised Land State Park, Conservation Island has always been a fun place to explore.
Today was a chilly cloudy day, it was peaceful and quite. Active Beavers took down a few trees. Tails are marked very well and there is an optional trail to walk along the water.

This was a nice trail to complete; moderately/easy hike. I had no complaints about the trail maintenance and the stream (little falls) is pretty. It was not heavily trafficked which is what I prefer.

Perfect quick hike if you have small children. Lush with ferns and giant rhododendrons. Flat terrain.

A nice quick hike very easy to do. Very scenic. In season, it is full of blackberries & huckleberries. In winter, have done a snowshoe hike with some beginners. Plenty of benches around the loop to sit with hot cocoa & enjoy the scenery.
