I ended up choosing one of the hardest trails, Trail E or, the Long Path, not on purpose but it was totally worth it! It was my first time doing something like this so it was a little scary because of how steep the cliffs were but when I got to the waterfall it was sooo worth it! Absolutely beautiful plus seeing the Hudson and New York the whole time (being from New York) was amazing. It was a great work out too. I can't wait to do it again.

very muddy. I wasn't expecting that much mud. I'm going to try it again in a few months.

Did with my 7 y.o. son. Take care on the steep "stair" descent. Rock scramble along the shore is challenging. Beautiful, fun, and doable, but do not underestimate the difficulty. Give yourself at least 3 1/2 or 4 hours of daylight if you are hiking - esp. with a child! Saw a few dogs but they did not look too happy about it. Great trail maps and descriptions available at http://www.njpalisades.org.
