Well defined trail, but very little trailhead parking. I went a bit further, turned left on the taconic ridge and got to the next closet crest- nice view through the bare trees.

My dog and I had a good time here. A good trail to try and get back into shape slowly. Overall easy trail until the uphill climb at the end.

This was a good hike! The uphill was tough for us being out of shape but it was a good workout. This map for some reason doesn't go to the top of the hill just stops at the clearing, but we continued up and got a nice view (there won't be one in summer). It was super buggy the whole way, as soon as we stopped moving they were all over us. The trail was super muddy in a few spots that made things tricky but with a little thought easy enough to maneuver around. Don't let it keep you from going. The stream and waterfall are just beautiful.

Wonderful hike! fairly easy until you get closer and closer to the NY MA boarder. Then strait up you go! A bit mucky at spots.

Nice trail, well marked, pretty easy until you get to the NY/MA border and then it’s entirely uphill. Parking here sucks. There’s a spot for 2 cars and then other cars just parked half on the road half on the shoulder. Ran into 3 other couples so it wasn’t busy at all.

Awesome Trail! The trail is well doable. My dog and I loved it. It’s a little chilly when it’s windy and after you cross into Massachusetts, it’s very muddy in certain areas.

Nice hike through the woods! The pup loved taking a break in the stream. Went in the beginning of October.

Beautiful trail. After the state line it gets quite steep in Massachusetts. There’s about 200 yards of soggy trail. They were grading the road and there was not much of a place to park.

Such a lovely walk in the woods. We didn’t go all the way. One of my party was recovering from an injury and didn’t want a rigorous hike. This was perfect. Next to the stream the whole time. On the way back we lost the path, but still ended up back in the road. Trees, fern, water, lots of shade. Great walk.

Easy trail! Hiked with my pup this morning, we ran into not one single person and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the fresh air. Not to mention the small falls at the middle point which was an added bonus and a great place to cool off.

Nice easy-moderate trail with a decent incline toward the end. Crosses the NY-MA state line. Didn’t encounter any other hikers whatsoever.

April 4th Still wet in sections. Dry and fast in many areas. A lot of down trees that bikes would not be able to get over, with a few that are no problem. Close to the top near the junction is very snowy, I'd advise to just turn it around if it looks that way, however that's going to be the best section of the ride come summer.

Mid-Aug: A lot wrong with this description but still a great hike. Waterfall is small but worth seeing. From the well marked parking and trail signs the Falls are about 1.1 miles in. Great family walk/hike to this point. After this, the trail gets a little and then a lot steeper. You do have to cross 2 brooks to get the full 3 miles in. Really found nothing at the top, couldn’t see passed the trees. Lots of pretty fungi!

Decent hike. Easy, level terrain mostly, except the last half mile or so which was super steep. Wish there was a view at the top!

It’s a nice trail. Not very long and quite easy except at the end. I liked the place, it’s clean and well kept. I recommend it.

Nice trail. I hiked it last weekend in the rain.

A very nice trail. Well marked and relativity easy for a family hike A real nice mixture of pine, birch, beech and maple trees. The trail follows the stream the entire hike and offers lots of access to nice views of the water. Above average hike.

I found this trail a little confusing. When you get to where the GPS takes you, there is no where to park except a little patch of pavement that is on the side of the road that has private property signs up (and the road kind of feels like someone's driveway) . The beginning of the trail is marked, with a DEC sign in book. The problem is that the trail runs alongside private property, and after going a little more than 2 miles in, the DEC trail markers stopped and different ones picked up, so we really weren't sure if we were allowed to go any further. Other than our confusion it was a nice hike (we never made it up to the falls, but followed the creek up which was nice).

A fine, well marked trail with pretty waterfalls.
