Hackers falls and the views from cliff park trail makes this a must do hike in the area. Not too difficult with not much elevation gain, so this is usually my go to hike when a friend or family member who doesnt hike much wants to join me. While the Raymond falls can get quite crowded, hackers trail and cliff park trail are usually quiet.

Raymondskill falls is beautiful! Parking lot fills up fast on the weekends so get there early. I got there at 10:30am and got a spot. But by 12pm there was no parking left.

It's Open. I was at Raymondskill on 6/24/18. I spoke to a Ranger at the trailhead. The Hacker's Falls and Cliff Park Trails are now open. NPS webpage also lists them as open.

Beautiful area, and the falls were spectacular. A recent storm this year made a mess of the trees but fortunately the falls weren't really effected.

Beautiful trails between the pine trees. Even though they were frozen the waterfalls were still gorgeous.

Be careful, the road leading to the trail is narrow and winding and has low visibility around curves. Definitely use caution so you don’t get into an accident

Fantastic hike with lots of beautiful things to see. Have done this hike multiple times and brought friends. I combine the falls and cliff trail.

Hackers was cool. I combined Raymondskill falls, cliff trail and Hackers falls into one hike. I had a blast. Here is my trip report.

Take the southern trail on my track to the bottom of the falls. Once you get to the river, cross to the other side to find a foot path leading to the falls upstream. You don't want to miss hanging out at the bottom of this beautiful waterfall!! Bring water shoes and a hiking stick to help with crossing the rocky river.

We took our 4 kids (ages 11 to 17) and we all loved it. Raymondskill fall is beautiful, just a short walk down and short climb up if you park in the lot. Hacker's fall is a fairly easy hike just across the road and up. Hacker's falls are definitely worth seeing. Saw lots of wildlife too.

We hiked this loop with 11 year olds, young adults, and 50+ year old adults, and all were able to complete the simple loop. We saw the falls, which were gorgeous, and the river at the bottom of the mountain. There was a pretty steep decline to get to the river however, but if you take it slow, most can make it down and up again. Our original intention was to hike the Cliff Trail, but we were confused about where we were and how to read the map from where we were. In the end, we were not disappointed, we just ended up doing something different than we had planned.

A beautiful fall and a nice hike to the creek. I only gave it 3 stars because the trails are not marked so uncertain which trail to follow to make the 2.9 mile loop. Parking lots are very small and you may not find a parking space. The trails are lined with gravel and certain spots are slippery.

Relatively easy hike, did Cliff trail as well. The view was great, and the falls were also wonderful. Definitely a hike I would do again.

Hiked the .3 mile loop to the top and bottom of Raymondskill Falls. Recent rains made for lots of water pouring over the falls. The trail to the bottom is a little steep, but it's short enough that small kids can walk it.

Great views! A little crowded around the waterfall deck but it thins out on the trails. Doable hike with children.

Great falls view, trails are easy, however not marked well. Used a program call bike computer to follow correct pathing.

Combined Raymondskill, Hackers Fall, and Cliff trail for a bigger loop and it was great. Some uphill some downhill, varying natural paths. Waterfalls we're great and the views on cliff trail were breathtaking. Only downside is trails could be marked better, some markers were knocked down and trail intersections could be labeled better.

Raymondskill falls and hackers falls are both great falls to see even in low water periods. Take the trip up to the cliff as well to look out at the Delaware river. Check our recorded track to see a great loop to follow.

We combined Hackers, Raymondskill and Cliff trails and we loved the experience! Our only criticism is that while the trails are marked, we would have liked more detail on the trails, such as maps or indicators where some trails overlapped. If that kind of detail was present I would give this experience 5 stars. Beautiful blend of well groomed trail and natural beauty. The falls were amazing and the overlooks were breath taking. We would go back enthusiastically. We parked at the Cliff trail head and there was a much appreciated bathroom there! Another plus!
