I hiked the overlook and then the Hamilton falls trail with a small group of people last year, and am planning to go again soon. In august there is an abundance of mushroom varieties on the way up. Coming back down to get to the main park entrance is also quite enjoyable, where you walk along a wide gravel path following the babbling brook.

I thought the trail was very well maintained and clean, views from the dam were great!! Have already recommended trail to others. Enjoy!

This was an easy hike to the falls. Fairly shaded as well. Once we reached the falls you can see a rope on the rocks. We climbed up the rocks with rope and there was a grotto like area on top. Would not recommend for children to do this. Fell coming down and scratched up my back. It was a really pretty sight to see and worth the hike though!

First 2 miles are on flat ground alongside the river and then once you turn onto the Hamilton Falls trail you have about another mile to go until you see the waterfalls. Also recommend taking the trail to see the overlook because it's stunning. FYI you need to pay, per person, to get in to Jamaica State Park.

Accessed this through Jamaica State Park, nice trails. Gradual elevation and not at all difficult. Falls were beautiful but it was very busy (kinda took away from the beauty). Top of the falls were really awesome to see too!

I thought this was a great trail to do for a beginner. Pretty flat and scenic for over 2 miles then a 1 mile, rocky, with breaks, hike up that's totally worth the view! I think the lower falls are more scenic but it was super fun and a lot of people at the upper falls as well. There's a road that will take you directly to the falls (West Windham) if you don't feel like taking the long trek. Also took my Boston Terrier and he loved it!

Excellent trail, the water fall at the end of the trail is so worth the trip!
