Small part of the trail is still closed. I ran the open parts (from Raymondskill Falls to Milford Beach) in July, and enjoyed it a lot. We hiked parts of the cliff trail yesterday and combined it with Pond Loop and Buchanan Trail. Great for running, good for hiking, really nice views from the lookout points. Enjoyed the elevation changes a lot, too.

Great overlooks.. not great marking but easy to find..used my app to help in spots to keep me on track... some of the cliff trail was blocked because of Falcons nesting on cliffs, but can go on most of it along the cliffs
Took cliff trail to Milford Knob & back

Took this trail today, beautiful day. Once up the initial incline there are some beautiful views. I read this trail as being 5 plus miles round trip. We were so intune with the beautiful weather and views that we didn’t realize right before the knob that we had gone 5 miles already. BE ADVISED the full loop is 10 plus miles. Well I got a full workout today. Great trail in the winter highly recommend.

I hiked this trail New Year's Day and again a week later. It's beautiful and totally doable covered in snow. I ended up taking the trail along the cliff on the way to Milford Knob and then taking the main trail back to the parking lot.

Incredible hike. Awesome water falls, and views. Easy access to Pennsyvania's Tallest Waterfall.

Great, relatively easy hike with lots of views. Some other hikers were around as the afternoon approached, but when I arrived at 9:30 I was nearly the only person around. Enjoyed the halfway point before heading back toward the trailhead: the Knob overlook of Milford.

Awesome views! Pretty easy trail other than the initial climb.

Beautiful hike along the cliffs. There are several areas where you can go off the main trail a bit to the edge of the cliff and relax.

Amazing views if you stray from the main path and go closer to the edges!

Nice, easy, well maintained trail. Best to do it in the summer or fall, but you can do it in the winter and spring as well as long as you are willing to trek through snow and watch out for icy spots. Can get a little muddy in the spring, but nothing too bad. Has really excellent views and meets up with a ton of other trails along the way so you can easily make an all day hike out of it. It is dog friendly! It's beautiful, and since my parents live in the area I will definitely be hiking it again!

Did this as part of a loop with Hackers Falls and Raymondskill Falls. Arguably the best views in the area and a great easy trail to hike. Would definitely repeat.

Beautiful views from up on the cliff. Great trail to do a little running as well. It was cool to look over the town of Milford at the end of the trail.

Great for a quick day run! At the end there's a river to hop in.

Wonderful hiking. I must come back in the Fall to enjoy the Autumn colors!

Probably the most serene and beautiful views I've ever seen.

Great hike with beautiful views of the Delaware river. At the end you get a great view of the village of Milford

Gorgeous views. Add the loop to hackers falls and take a cooling break!

Great hike on the Cliff Trail out to Milford knob... Stunning views of the Delaware River. Milford knob was a bit of a disappointment but overall, a great hike!

Great trip but not linear at all! I did a fabulous 8 mile loop.

Great views at the overlooks. We parked at the Cliff park trailhead which has a nice restroom. Several loop trails start here and connect to the Cliff trail to the overlooks. Would be nice if the sign with the trail maps had the corresponding trail marker colors listed.

Awesome set of trails right across from Raymondskill Falls. For the effort you are rewarded with another great waterfall (Hackers Falls), an abandoned farm, a,loop around a pond and the cliff trail, which has stunning views of the Delaware River Valley. Restroom at one of the trailheads about mid-way if you start on Raymondskill rd. A must - do hike while in the DWGNRA! Hike it!
