Starting and ending at the preserve parking lot, this 1.2 mile loop passes by a series of waterfalls along Wilsey Creek (the northern boundary of the preserve). A portion of the trail to and from Schoharie Creek is quite steep.

Lovely trail. Standing water in a couple places. No big deal, just bring extra shoes for trip home. A bit hard to judge footing in a few places, due to lots of fallen leaves.

Great trail for people with kids! Easy walk with a great view. Nice brisk walk uphill at the end to get some exercise in. Very well marked and easy to follow.

Awesome trail right off the Schoharie creek. Has waterfalls, ponds and the creek itself. The first part near the parking area you walk by the water but the cliff is to steep to get down to but you can see some nice waterfalls in the meantime right next to the trail. Then when you cross the street and start walking down that’s when you have water access. It would be a great spot to hike, swim and fish.

Delightful short hike, well-marked with varied terrain. Trail traces the creek and several waterfalls, leading to the creek and back.

Super short. Could’ve walked the entire trial in 30 minutes. Stopped at the creek for a little bit. Waterfall you can view from from the trail it’s a steep cliff to get up close to it. Trail isn’t too over grown you can tell someone came through within the past week. There are ticks so be cautious.

You need to sit down at the lake. The view is simply phenomenal!
