A little muddy after the storm last night. Saw a baby turtle on the path up by the pond. Overall nice little running loop with a hill thrown in to challenge you a little. Lots of cobwebs - must have been the first out today.

It was super buggy! It was overgrown in some areas and muddy in some areas, Someone was living on the trail. On the positive side, it was more of a workout than I expected, the hill is steep.

Stunning views of the rushing waterfalls. Need to walk a bit precariously in order to experience the up close beauty of the river, pond and falls but well worth it.

Nice trail. Perfect length for our small pup. Had a noce picnic at the waterfall on a rock. A little muddy in a couple of spots but mostly dry. Really enjoyed this hike.

If you want a tougher hike up and want to see the little waterfall on your way back, take a left at the fork. No mud at all!

Short hike with some steep parts, a stream and small waterfall. Went with my boys ages 12 and 10. Perfect for a quick hike to get a little exercise.

short hike, but reasonably challenging. a few muddy paths, so wear your boots or done be afraid to hike the rocks. be wary of random holes if you take the latter and a dog. GORGEOUS pathways, a true treasure hiding in plain site. met another dog and their human, a pleasant experience in all. tge falls to no river sold out for me. 10/10 would return.

Great views of the falls and an overlook of Hudson! A real hidden gem.

An interesting place . The trail to the right brings you to the falls. With the recent rain the falls were flowing nicely. However the trail becomes flooded at the falls .Someone commented that the beavers made a dam. I retraced my steps and took trail to the left . It actually is a pretty legit hike up a small hill . The trail isn’t well marked and I ended up just walking back on that trail. Not a bad spot overall

The trail is no longer a loop. a beaver has made his mark with a dam. part of the trail is now a sream.

Epic fail for such a nice place. Thought could do few miles around the loop and nothing's marked so kept hitting dead end.

This was a short trail, but the incline up Philips Hill is a good workout. A few parts are not used much and sometimes hard to make out, but overall a nice hike. The waterfall was pretty too.

there was trashed at the parking area thrown all over. the trail itself was a nice walk but there is no water at the falls. I am sure that is due to the drought but it was disappointing.

Trail was great considering its March. A number of larger trees down in the path but was fun. The small waterfall was really nice.
