Situated just a short walk from vehicle. Waterfalls were refreshing. The area is set up for picnicking and listening to the Falls was relaxing. Worth the stop to stretch and walk around.

I walked the trail both ways. The footing is more sure clock wise but the difficulty is about the same either way. Nice little hike with an adequate challenge.

No waterfall on the Buttermilk Falls Trail. So much for a quick hike and lunch break on the way back from Massachusetts.

Nice trail. Its doable but it is not for first timers. Close to the waterfall (although no water when we were there) it is a very narrow path close to ledge but then it Widens out again. Trail was well marked and lots of rocky patches.

Trail winds behind homes and has a refrigerator or 2 on it. Falls are dry. Late June. But good ascent and awesome for a 20 min hike.

Hiked all the way up there and the "waterfall" was completely dried out. Would not recommend to anyone looking for a waterfall.

A quick enjoyable hike. It includes a modest waterfall and a decent view from the top. Like many short hikes in heavily populated areas the viewpoint has turned into a litter box of broken glass and beer cans.

Pretty easy trail but with a steady climb, it took me 35 minutes to get up and back down with no resting. At one point the blue markings are replaced by white markings so that gets a little complicated.

Great hike for my girlfriend who isn't an avid hiker. But she enjoyed it, and opened her up to going more often.

Nice little hike with the kids to get out of the house. Was there on a Saturday and only a few people on the trail midday.

Extend this hike. It is beautiful but way to short.
