Beautiful view with chances to break off the beaten path. I only wish that there was a clear map for what colored paths lead where. The views were worth the time regardless.

Nice out-and-back with an elevation of about 400 feet, beautiful forest and creek, and lots of wildlife. We didn't see the waterfall today but plan on going back soon and hiking in that direction. Next time bringing some waterproof boots or sneakers to creek walk. Don't like creek walking in our hikers. We spend a lot of time hiking in the Finger Lakes (Ithaca, Trumansburg, Watkins Glen, Montour) and this place reminded us of some of the smaller trails in CNY. Got some beautiful shots here! Highly recommended trail.

Basic loop trail, good for beginners & children. Also a good trail with slight elevation change good for you to get accumulated with new trekking poles. ⛰

Well marked easy to follow trail, muddy and soggy at some points but the views of the waterfalls make it worth it.

Well marked with great views. Some of the hike is walking on wet shale rock less then a foot away from running water. Do not go when there is a flash flood warning or it just rained a lot because the lower trail will be under water.

Well- marked trail and hiked it with the kids. It doesn't loop, so we did backtrack once we got to the end, but it was a beautiful view even in January.

Nice trial - preferred angler access which takes you down to the creek. Don't care for heights which the upper trail has decent size drop offs, but nice views. More road noise on the upper path from the thruway.
