So which trail actually takes you to the waterfall?

Fun, accessible trail with pretty views. Parking lot is across from trail head. We had some trouble following the trails after stumbling upon the playing field-- we wound up crossing a bridge, passing through a wedding at the Lodge (sorry about that, folks) and taking the green trail south. Crossing the river just beyond the waterfall was fun.

did this trail today and wow. first off where the app has you park you need to walk across the highway to hit the trail head otherwise you will be on the flat bike trail. trails are well marked and the falls are beautiful. once you hit the falls and climb up the blue trail its a bit tricky getting back in track. our dog was able to climb up and out but shes hiked a bit. not for an inexperienced dog. overall great views, clean park n will do it again. not buggy either which was a plus.

Decent trail. Moderate at some points but then fairly easy overall. The High Point Path does not have any views or anything despite its name. The best view is on the Patriots Path right where it meets the pink trail. That view was pretty nice and had a bench and shade to have a snack. The waterfalls off the dam are also really nice. There is a path following the river that parallels the Patriots Path. Overall, decent hike and there are some more trails to explore so I will be back.
