It's a beautiful little day hike. We parked at Gillette parking lot and walked across the street to the Patriots path. We went up and first got to the look out, then the trail led us to the bottom of a beautiful waterfall. Hike to the top of the waterfall and it leads you to a lake and a little wildflower meadow! Our furbaby Jax loved it too!

Got lost on 2 trails. Use the blue path starting from Schooley mountain park. Awesome waterfalls though. Taking a dip was fun.

After crossing the street we opted to go counter clockwise around the loop. Glad we did it this way since my knees can't handle things too steep going down. Though there were satisfying ups and downs either way. Trails were well marked and you could normally see two marks ahead. Some rocky bits especially by the falls. Have good sticky shoes if you go on a wet day.

Today was our first time going to the falls. It was fun and the falls provided additional entertainment. Our German Shepherd loved the hike as well.
