Nice little route. A little muddy, but alternatives available. I also foresee it being really buggy in the summer. Good route for beginners or trail runners

Walking

Follow the trail clockwise to enjoy the water fall and river at the end of the walk. The initial incline was a bit steeper than expected but definitely doable with no skill level. Some areas of mud along the trail near the stream.

Did this trail a few days after some heavy rain, so parts there was some mud on the flat stretch by the river. Took a 3-year old and she loved it. lots of rocks to climb on and not too challenging. Great day out

Loop is best done clockwise so you tackle the hill first and then are treated to the falls and stream. Southern part of trail was very muddy but there is a secondary path to stay clear of the wet.

One of the best winter hikes of the season. This trail has it all - River, falls, steeps, clear paths (very easy to follow).

Not too challenging, but great for seniors like me. The water was fairly high so the falls were running nicely. I think they were trying to catch a beaver beginning to build a beaver dam

Wear boots! Trail is a little muddy near the river, portion over the hill is not well marked, but lots of fun little spots to explore with kids.

great trail to get the heart pumping climbing up Phillip's Hill. Trail marked by White Triangles. Be careful not to wonder onto private property. If it looks like someone's yard, it is. Happy Hiking!

It’s very pretty and easy. Slight increase in elevation only in the beginning of the hike. Right now in the end of Sept, the falls are not going on. Just still water. The leaves are yellow and falling. So pretty!

We did this trail at the end of the summer and it was extremely buggy and no running water, which attracted more mosquitoes. The trails weren't well marked so you might end up on someone's property if you go into it just thinking it's one loop (like we did).

Glass on trail, nice hill but overall so so. And of course no water (which really isn't the trails fault)

I was expecting a small waterfall but there wasn't any. Overall the trail was beautiful there was a lot of hills.
