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.

First visit today, absolutely beautiful trails are marked and there is easy access for an old man like me. Other reviews were very helpful I plan on a return visit

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.
