It is nice but nothing to go crazy over. Go once and that's enough for me at least.

Trail was closed today due to high water. We walked down to the Cohoes Falls overlook park and hard some great views of the raging water. We managed to see one immature bald eagle flying up-river.

You get a beautiful view of the Cohoes Falls. Highly suggested after a heavy rainstorm or early spring (durning snowmelt). Picnic tables available. Can get down close to the bottom via a long straight set of stairs with 100+ steps or a curved easy trail. This is for the "get out of the house" hike for a little bit, hike. :30 to 1 hour tops and you've seen it all.
Cohoes Falls is 2nd largest Falls in NY only after Niagara Falls. Catch it when it's roaring and it really is awe inspiring.

Nice walk, beautiful views. NO DOGS allowed ... Thank goodness it's a short walk in and out... We had to take turns while someone stayed with the dog. You can leisurely do the whole walk in about 20 minutes.
