Rated this four stars because the falls are amazing, and the brief hike to reach them is easy. My intention was to hike the loop, but the trail was so poorly marked I couldnt follow. definitely going back after studying more maps. the trailhead and sign in are actually off to the right, immediately before the parking lot. No signs indicated that, so I nearly left before deciding to following the snowmobile trail.

Great hike. Water was moving which made falls very nice. No problem for 4 and 9 year old and they loved it. Spent almost 2 hours there and did not do loop. Started going downstream which I think was technically opposite way and came back same way. Highly recommend.

Easy hike with beautiful views of the halls. Takes about an hour and a half, depending on how often you stop for pictures and resting.

The falls are nice, but the trail is not well-marked, and there are a number of intersecting trails that can make it confusing if you don’t know the area.

Good hike. I agree with the easy level. This was our first time on this hike and the trail did not have good markings. Will do again next time I'm in the area.

Great short trail! A little further than a mile and pretty easy terrain. My group went backwards (technically) and followed the river downstream to get to the falls. Great photo opportunities.

Trail is very well maintained. Short walk through a beautiful forest to see a unique Adirondack waterfall. The waterfall surprised me with the force of the rapids and how it was a gorge rather than a classic waterfall. Highly recommended as a stop on your way to the northern Adirondack region as the trailhead is right on the side of Route 8.

Even with the low water, the Auger Falls loop is impressive. The trees are starting to turn color and in a week or two will be at peak.

Very easy and quick hike. The trail follows the river for a good portion of the hike. Looks to be a very poplar hike cause of the easiness of it so expect to see others while hiking It. Alot of families on the trail.

A beautiful short hike with an amazing reward at the end! Went in July and it is pretty wet in some spots. Very easy for children or older adults.

Super easy hike to the falls. The falls are lovely and the water flow is quite powerful. Neato. The trail markings become a bit more murky as you head past the falls, but the most important thing to remember is that the trail, walking upstream, sticks to the rivers edge for a couple hundred yards and then slowly loops back to the parking area. Go for it! Don't turn back at the falls, do the entire loop!

Very easy, light trail to do in less than 2 hours. My parents and I enjoyed this hike as a leg-stretch after our long ride to New York. Trail is mostly flat, and the falls are very pretty. The loop back isn't very well marked or maintained, so we turned around and returned the way we came.

Beautiful falls. Loop trail just over a mile. Tough to get real close to falls but managed to do so.

Beautiful walk. Raging falls that make ground shake but watch little kids. One slip and they will be gone forever!
