Underwhelming. It’s over before you even know it and nothing really special about it

Make sure to check yourself from head to toe afterwards for any ticks! Aside from that, it was a cute trail. Pretty scenery.

We were a little disappointed.

This trail is a short loop & easy, but it'd nice if you just want a quick walk to stretch your legs. The trail is well kept, clear path & no garbage or hoof holes. My dogs loved it!!

Overall good short hike. It is well maintained and very well marked, I really liked that. No waterfall just a fake one at the entrance that doesn't work. As soon as you drive into the park it is on your right, before you get to the office.

It's a good hike for young kids. But be careful because it gets really really muddy in parts. So go when there isn't a lot of rain or snow. Also there isn't any waterfall on any part of it, exp a fake one in the front that doesn't work lol!

Hiked this one right after stopping by the park office. Waterfall was off at the entrance, I didn't read the description and was expecting a waterfall on the trail. Path was well cleared, not much in the way of elevation gain but still a nice quick hike.

I visited Milford State Park on a Sunday afternoon and walked this trail first. It is at the entrance and is the first thing you see in the park (to the right). On this day, the man-made waterfall was not turned on and the pond was looking rather scummy. The path itself is a mowed strip within a small grove of trees. Since my intention was to hike/bike other trails in the park, this was a good one to start with. In my own estimation, if one had been driving a long time to get to the park, this little walk would be nice to get out and stretch before setting up camp.
