Many people out enjoying the cool spring day today. Trails muddy in spots but not too bad. Buttermilk falls is definitely worth the hike to see. Been to Blue Hen many times and never realized the hidden gem just down the stream.

HikingGreat!

2 awesome waterfalls only ~0.5 mi apart. Blue Hen was busy yesterday, not too busy today. Buttermilk basically deserted. First time to Buttermilk and it’s pretty spectacular. No markings but really easy to get to with frozen water crossings and noticeable tracks in the snow. Would love to see this in all its glory spring/summer but imagine it could be a little more difficult at times of high water.

beautiful trail some nice hills. It was a bit slippery - trail was frozen and uneven from people walking in the mud, with a little bit of snow on top.

Really quiet part of the park. Some trail-finding required, but absolutely worth it to see the falls frozen over.

Awesome waterfall. Couple of creek crossings be careful not to get your feet wet. Worth the extra hike past Blue Hen.
