Sentier assez pénible au début, une route en pierre qui ne cesse pas de monter. De Plus le chemin à prendre était très flou, nous ne somme pas sur d'être aller au bon endroit ou si le sentier continuait. Nous avons croiser d'autres randonneurs aussi perdu que nous.

No indication whatsoever... we met a couple of hikers who told us they missed the entrance of the trail (where it leaves the boring sand road). So we went right as soon as we could. We reached a viewpoint that was ok but maybe not worth the climb. We did not see what we were supposed to see, so I guess we didn’t take the right trail !

the falls a definite reward at the end. steady climb but not too difficult.

Great hike very pretty view but with many gnats. Amazing time.

Quick one mile loop with varied scenery and enjoyable stops to read poetry along the way.

Pretty decent hike. We only had a few hours so this was perfect. Took us about 1h15m up and 45 down. Not too much to see on the way up. The waterfall is cool, but there isnt an open “view” like there would be on top of a mountain. If I were ever in the area again, I would probably do it again.

Walked the loop with the family - 12yo and 9yo. It was an easy hike/walk with a few up and down slopes. Nice views near the pond, though nothing spectacular .

Nice quick hike. make sure to look up at about 1.6 mils so you see the sign for Prospect rock to the right. Beautiful view from the top!

Not a hard hike just not well marked.

Not to steep of an incline going up. Very clean trail, but it was not very well marked. Once you find prospect rock its beautiful definitely a hidden gem. Needs more trail markers for where the actual rock area is. Otherwise, it was a nice hike, we even went further and found Lye Forest.

An okay hike. It’s a steady climb to the falls, it never gets steep. The trail descends a little over the last half of a mile. Although the lanslide and the waterfall are interesting, there aren’t many other attractions on the rest of the trail.

Great easy hike for an early Saturday morning with a stellar view as the payoff. Had Prospect rock all to myself for 40 minutes...very grateful

Came in November. Beautiful and no none there. Perfect.

Nice easy hike! The Falls were completely frozen when we were there today which was pretty cool. Very well maintained trail & super easy going, never steep.

It was a great hike and the best time to do it is fall when the ground is full of fall leaves. It looks like a scene from a fairy tail book. This is an easy hike with not much elevation. This is a quick hike if you have other things planned as well during the afternoon and dont want to spend all day hiking. Or just need something for 2-3 hours. It gives you some elevation as well. So for folks who like to raise their heart beats a bit while hiking, this has that element as well. Waterfall itself is quite beautiful. There is a giant rock where mostly folks go till and take pictures. But there is about 50 more steps you could take upwards towards the falls (a bit slippery) but gets you closer to the falls and gives you a better view. You could also go further down the fall and chill at a few rocks. Not too much traffic.

Ticks! This area is prime habitat for ticks. I was there in October for one hour with my dogs. They stayed on trail 99% of the time and still I’ve picked at least 25 ticks off them today.

Trail was well maintained. Very easy to hike. There were 2 other trails that went up the mountain for a longer hike if you have more time. The only disappointment was hearing the traffic because it's so close to the main road.

This was a nice easy trail on the last leg of a 2 night backpacking trip starting at Stratton mountain trail.
Still foliage this late in season. Could easily see where most of the wild flowers would have been. Nice stream crossings.

Great little hike. Took about about 2 1/2 hours for the up an back with about 20 min at the falls. It has been dry the last few weeks so the volume of water coming down was not spectacular.

Did this while baby wearing my 6 month old son and it was the perfect workout !

Great little hike!

Still snow on the ground with nice views and signage with Frost poems. Would go again.

It's a rather boring hike up. You are pretty much walking on a dirt road. Road is very rocky and steep. There is a small waterfall at the beginning other then that pretty uneventful until to reach Prospect Rock. The view from there was very nice. Ok hike if your looking to kill some time.

This was so far our favorite hike in the green mountains.

very nice trail... family friendly... our dachshund made it all the way without any assist. no views along the way... a nice wooded trail. would look great if leaves were peaking... which they were NOT today... the payoff is a waterfall which is fun to scramble around on and pretty...

awesome hike. my wife and i did the whole loop. tons of climbing but well worth it. beautiful and quiet. almost saw no one. definitely recommended.

Nice forest hike but ZERO views at summit.Trees have overgrown it as of 9/17. Disappointing.

This is a awesome little hike with beautiful views.

Great trail...loved the numerous Robert Frost poems placed throughout the trail. Great all ages Trail

Nice trail network, the waterfalls are picturesque and the trip up the mountain is a nice loop. Very popular so expect plenty of company.
