Very steep trail but great exercise. Didn't make it all the way to the top because it was steep and it was raining. Saw the falls through the woods very beautiful but we turned back because my boyfriends was nervous about bears or mountain lions. Then when we were all the way almost to the end, a tree falls on its own. A huge tree which made a loud noise and we thought it was some animal knocking it down so we started running but it was fun! Would go back again probably in the fall or spring.

This was a nice hike.. Uphill on red trail was a slightly steep challenge, as other have said, great work out. The second half of the loop heading down is not a marked trail, but was able to follow easy. The downhill section of this trail is pretty steep and takes some time to get down. Overall, it was a very enjoyable hike with some great views of the falls..

Steep trail up to fall- great workout!! Wanted to find either reservoirs but couldn't. Anyone know the best trail to them?

Always a good hike if you take the Quinnipiac trail. I enjoy starting from the north or from the south. Was just there 2/19/17. There had been a couple of nice snow falls in the last 10 days, but on this day it was in the low 60s. So there was a lot of snow melting and the waterfall was flowing strong.

Good trail, will attempt again. Didn't complete the loop, miscalculated how much time I before dusk with all the snow.

The Quinnipiac trail is a good trail to walk on. This section of the trail is a challenging short hike with a great waterfall.
