More of a nice walk on a sunny day; not a hike; also not the cleanest or most remote area ... crowded too. BUT the falls make for a great view and photos raising it to two stars

The trails and park need a lot of work. The park feels lost in an urban environment with which it doesn't blend well.

It's gorgeous here! The falls were a little on the lower side and not overflowing, but it's a beautiful view. Not too many trails around here that are open, it's more of a park to walk around in. There was a Ranger there who gave a brief overview of the falls and the facilities. Overall, a great, short trip. I recommend to come early, on days with good weather, it does get crowded.

Great view especially from the bridge. The trials aren't that long; you can see the whole park in 2-3 hours. Stroller friendly and nearby restaurant make it a great afternoon walk.

this isn't really a hike. it's a walk through an extremely dirty park. broken glass and trash everywhere. the fall is beautiful but don't make the trip unless you're in the area or live nearby because it's not worth a haul.

Very easy and accessible paths with stunning views of the Great Falls. The park is also located in Paterson's Historic District, there are museums and art houses nearby. A very cool day trip
