loved this hike, went on a nice warm sunny day in Jan. The half frozen waterfall was amazing. A neighbor of the trail gave us the advice to stay on the trail the land to both sides are private land. it is well posted.

Iv done this hike dozens of times and it’s always worth it! Yes it’s steep but a short hike iv read some reviews of people missing the waterfall and the rock statues and ledge itself once you reach the creek at the top stick to the right side and take the well worn side trails towards the cliff edge they will run into the ledge and the rock statues.

Great hike, amazing views of the Delaware and a waterfall to refresh yourself.

Good hike with great views! If you're lucky you'll have some Bald Eagles overhead or flying below the ledges. Passed a few other hikers, but otherwise empty midday on a Wednesday.

Great views, waterfall, rock designs. Downside, be on the lookout for rattlesnakes!! No joke. Hike in is up all the way and rocky. Good chance of seeing bald eagles up there.

The map here doesn't cover the entire length of the trail; it ends arbitrarily. I'm not sure how much more there is but some other hikers we encountered suggested it was substantial. Having just followed the route here, we saw neither a waterfall nor ledges. A good vigorous climb at the beginning and a pretty creek at the top of the hill were highlights.
