Waterfall. Wild Trout Streams, Black River, Hemlock forest, Deep Ravines This loop hike is great if you are looking to get out for the day but relax more than hike. The hike will take you down into the Blackriver as well as along Trout and Rhinehart Brook, Hemlock Ravines and mature hardwood forests. The trails are wide and have gravel put down. If you want that challenge there are a few trails along the Black River that are more like hiking trails, narrow and rocky. This hike will take you through both trail types. Along the trails you will pass many benches and picnic areas. There are also old water fountains along the way that where built by the Civilian Conservation Cor, during the depression. They no longer work though. The trails are all unmarked but will be getting marked in the next year. The best time to hike the area is during the week when you will only encounter fly fisherman. Weekends tend to get crowded.

This park is very small and the waterfall is small as well. A nice park if you live near by and want to walk on a daily basis. The waterfall is close to the beginning of the red trail only a few hundred feet down the stairs. Most of the trails are paved so no real hiking involved in places. There are pick nick areas all over and in some prestige places. Saw about 3 restroom spots along the trails. Definitely a pretty place.

Followed the red trail all the way around. Nice views! Hung out on a rock in the river. Peaceful.

Great for a stroll through the woods. Fun mix of easy level trails and a few steeper climbs. Trails along the river.

Went on this hike last week and there was a decent amount of cars in the lot due to the nice weather, but it never felt crowded. There's some great spots by small waterfalls to relax and read a book.
