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.
