John Young Nature Trail is a 2.2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Rodman, New York that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until October.
Basically the whole trail is wooded, preventing much of a view near the waterfall. You really have to look to see the falls because they are pretty far away. The trail itself is not bad. I saw people mountain biking on it when I was there. Depending on the time you go, be prepared for mud in sections. Overall, it's a decent short trail, but not alot to offer in the way of scenic views aside from the forest. It would probably be a nice fall hike.
it is under construction at this point. I have now hiked this five times and totally love it. it is difficult to get to but it is so worth it.

Great trail. can very easily miss the waterfall if you're coming from the west. There is a strange "intersection" that doesn't exactly point you on the right direction. Thankfully I kept going and sort of found the arrows to point me on the direction. Got to a spot overlooking the falls but couldn't see the rainbows, like the sign says. So kept hearing east until I was facing directly at the falls and that's when I noticed the rainbow. Beautiful site.
Beautiful trail! The only thing that it needs is direction arrows for finding the falls.
It's not a bad trail, but its pretty wooded. It's a little short, the waterfall is far off. Trail is kept up pretty well. This time of year parts of it are a little soggy but it isn't bad. But it's good for the family, mostly flat.
Loved the views.
Not a bad hiking trail, pretty easy. In the shade the whole trail most of the views are blocked by trees. The waterfall isn't much and it's a far view. Not a bad little walk though.
