Nice spot to skip stones. A little busy though.

Great trail, but the lower part next to the river is very icy, slippery, and dangerous during icy/snowy weather. Not recommended for seniors or young children.

Easy walking trail with some families. Some narrow spots next to the river but still easy.

Easy stroll. Took the red out and white back for a nice loop. Relaxing views from log benches.

HikingGreat!

This trail (especially the lower part that gets right down to the water where the icehouse used to be) is easily one of my favorite places to go - hard to explain why, but it always just feels 'right' to be there. I couldn't possibly recommend this trail more.

Nice little nature walk. Cute little waterfall and nice views of the Esopus. WARNING! The small loop off to the right does not cut back to the trail. It is a steep and rocky hike out which is covered by leaves right now. I did it just to make sure that it is in fact not a marked trail for you future hikers. All on all beautiful quick hike though.

Easy trail with rocks & roots on the white trail. Nice views of the Hudson River. The blue trail had a waterfall with a seating area, but there were some parts of the blue trail that were overgrown. The waterfall on the red trail was beautiful & had a seating area overlooking the falls.

Pretty easy trail. We did the counter-clockwise around the upland portion to the waterfall. All shaded - nice benches and areas by the Hudson to sit. We then did the smaller loop, but found that it doesn't really connect back to that main trail as in the AllTrails trace. You have to double-back or take the inner trail that loops back. Nice pleasant walk.
