It was a pretty easy trail. Very muddy in spots. Could have used bug spray.

After a lame trip to Howe caverns, we crashed at the holiday inn express in Coxsackie. Great hotel by the way. Decided to check out this hike with my 2 boys. Trail markings were very clear. The falls were just awesome. Boys and I jumped into the pool under the falls and had a blast. Great little discovery.

Took a fun hike today that included our Bassett hound. The trails were manageable, though could be better marked. Be sure to have the actual trails map with you otherwise you could end up going all the way to the opposite trail end. Their were several dipping in the creek by the falls. Good trail for a family hike.

It wasn't a "lightly trafficked" trail as mentioned above. The falls were cool from afar, but up close dirty from party after party. Easy trail.

A great family hike - one of our favorites! You can swim at the bottom of the falls, a bit more pleasant for the kids if they have water shoes.
