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
