The directions lead to a very narrow rocky road that will damage your car. No trail head and no trail in sight.

The falls are magnificent but there is a lot of damage being done to the area by careless people. This quick hike out had litter and junk left on it. We spent time clearing some of it but even at the falls there was an accumulation of stuff people have carelessly left behind. Leave no trace, take only photos needs to be driven home to those going. I wish I had bags and gloves with us to clean up the mess and a way of spreading more information about responsible use of the area.

It’s very easy to get lost coming back so Pay attention record you’re map with all trails so you can assure you’re using the correct path many people were lost. If you have kids find the trails end parking lot ! It’s a nice family path

The hiking is more of a gentle walk. The falls are lovely, except for all the crap people left behind. We saw a range of garbage from dirty diapers, clothing, dirty underwear and more. Before COVId this spot was empty. Now it’s over run with people.

Nice easy flat hike. The hardest part was driving up the parking lot. And the parking lot itself is not well maintained. The falls are pretty and lots of space to spread out if it’s crowded. You can wade in to cool off, but not really swim - it’s not the deep, at least in most spots.

Nice walk. Pretty rocky in places and busy at the actual falls but people were polite and social distanced. Drive in is tight if cars are coming both directions...go slow.

Super easy. The waterfall is nice. Water is ice cold, but worth a dip!

Very easy hike , the small waterfalls is beautiful. Totally would be awesome to take a dip ,on a hot day ! . A parking lot is on top , but if you have a low car it’s better to park about 2 miles back .

Great trail with beautiful falls. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because there’s multiple trails marked the same color. Went a mile down the wrong trail.

I can't give this trail a real rating because we didn't get a chance to do it. The parking area was completely full and it was all mud. Watched several people trying to get their cars out from being stuck. Just posting this as a warning to those thinking about going.

It was amazing! The only reason I’m not giving it a 5 star rating is because it had a lot of tiny streams on the path, forcing you to get a little bit wet sometimes. I didn’t make it all the way to the falls at the end, but it was still beautiful! A good hike while quarantined.

My kids said this was their favorite waterfall and that comes after doing Kaaterskill, Watkins Glen and Letchworth. Who knows. Easy hike. Some downhill some uphill. Very muddy. Went 3/28/20.

Beautiful easy hike and gorgeous waterfalls. We backpacked and stayed overnight, as did many others, looked like all the sites were used.

Was great fun- I’d rate it as an easy hike, though the incline on the way in raised my heart rate a few ticks, for sure. Would definitely come back here.

Great easy hike. Good for kids. Nice payoff with a beautiful multitiered waterfall at the end. Perfect for a quick picnic.
