This is less than a 5 Min drive from Olivia’s overlook, so we did this after. Bridge is still Closed, like others said, so it’s an out and back. Steady downhill to the water, then a hike up to an overlook to see waterfall.

Great hike, simple but very steep ("easy" is a good definition of hike, except for the healthy elevation) Beautiful downhill woods walk/hike that transitioned into a thick, older forest the lower you go. The waterfalls (and area around) is lovely. Sad news: one of the bridges is out so the right turn loop is closed - which makes it and out & back hike....

Great trail and kid friendly loop. One of the Bridges is still closed but we were able to cross the stream safely and access the other trail. The waterfall is beautiful and we really enjoyed the lookout platform.

Nice trail! Love the steps down to the overlook. The climb up the rocks made me a little leery with little kiddos, but they did well! It was buggy but our bug spray kept them at bay for the most part and the bridge closest to the trailhead is still impassable.

half of the loop is closed due to reconstruction. you are only able to go over one bridge and see one waterfall. we were pretty let down based on the pictures posted here. ALSO the directions do not bring you to the right location when initially finding the trail.

Directions to get to the trail on this are incorrect but I did happen onto it. Short hike, waterfall is nice with some peaceful streams along the way. Moderate ascent to waterfall but overall easy walk.

Great hike to the waterfall. If you’re expecting an easy flat one mile trail though, this is not it. It has parts that are steep and rocky and you definitely need to watch your footing. It’s on the low end of moderate and further than a mile to do the whole loop but a great walk still. Worth it.

Quick, fun trail. Came after a big rainfall and saw lots of mushrooms. The falls were cool, a good centerpiece to the hike. Someone saw a bear; not us, unfortunately.

Nice gently sloping trail that empties to a quiet ravine. Would be a great place to bring dogs and kids. Safe and easy to navigate. Another one of Berkshire county's gifts.

The glen is beautiful if it has been raining. Early summer or mid fall is your best bet. Trail is quite short and easy, with no true views-but a nice walk in the woods nevertheless.

The directions in this app are incorrect: the trailhead is visible from the road on Lenox Branch Road near the border of Richmond and West Stockbridge. You can park in the pull-off on the side of the road, by the Stevens Glen sign. There are maps available at the trailhead. You can go either left or right to start the loop- if you go left, you will be descending immediately. If you go right, you will spend the end of the hike climbing uphill for a long time. There were a lot of lovely views of water features, with a number of sweet benches and little footbridges. One footbridge was flooded and had, in fact, become a waterfall feature due to erosion, but it is possible to cross it if you don't mind getting your feet wet. The loop's spur is marked with a sign that points to the Glen, and it is uphill most of the way, but totally worth it. Take the metal stairs to the overlook platform to see the tall, narrow falls in the crevice of the rocks. You'll have to double back on the spur to return to the loop. An impressive trail with great rewards, especially considering its short length and well-maintained trail (in all but the one aforementioned area). It is well marked and appropriate for anyone in good health, wearing hiking shoes or sandals. It certainly got my heart pumping in the uphill areas! Bugs were obnoxious, so take precautions! I almost didn't write this review because I don't want the trail to become too well known. My track looks totally wonky because I didn't have great internet service on my phone in that area, so the GPS would become weak or the app would crash.
