Nice scenery, my small dog was able to get through the snow okay. Few parts were very slippery. Made it to the first water fall and turned back was unsure if the trail looped back around to the beginning

Seems like a great local trail! I’ll be back when it’s less muddy.

NB This not for the Buttermilk Falls that’s one of the tallest in NJ. Rocky with a few muddy spots, but nice overall.

Easy but rocky. Hiking boots recommended. There are no trail markers but the loop is pretty obvious and if not the road will always lead you back to the trail head

No trail markers. Very rocky along most of the trail, better at the top tho. Busy at the water fall, less so as you turn off the stream and head back over the top.

very rocky in most parts, not well marked - no trail maps, you must use this app. Very diverse, very busy around the falls, but not much traffic across the pond on the orange trail.
