HikingGreat!

First half of the trail is great for beginners. You hike creek side up until you need to cross it to get to the reservoir. Easiest way up is to cross before the stream divides over the large boulders. This is a little tricky if you have older or younger hikers with you. Great hike all around though!

Very nice trail, but to get to the waterfall at the end you must cross a creek. Beautiful area. Saw a huge black bear. No pic sorry.

Fall is dried up right now, but the hike is gorgeous because of the little falls and creek. People need to clean up after themselves though. Cans, bottles...you name it...was all over the place at the beginning of the trail. So disrespectful.

The beginning of the trail was pretty easy and was more of a nature walk than a hike, but there were a few parts you had to climb down. To get to the falls, you have to cross the river, I did that by walking through the water, but I saw a couple who walked across a fallen tree. I expected to be able to find the falls by listening for them, but the falls were mostly dried up, so finding them was a bit difficult. The end of the trail at the falls was pretty uneventful, but it was still a nice hike.

I go here all the time and it’s a beautiful place! Only downfall is that people trash it ALL THE TIME which is sad considering how amazing the falls are. You will need to cross over a fallen tree in order to get up to the waterfall.

This was a great hike! It took a little time to figure out where the trail went to the falls. But once I got to the falls I had them all to myself and could just sit & enjoy them!

I could not find any places to safely cross either. The trail was a mess. I’d like to hike this again with someone who knows how to get to the falls, also if anyone knows how to find out if this is open to the public legally I’d be interested in setting up a crew to clean up the trash.

I'm sure the falls are pretty but there are private property signs and trash EVERYWHERE. Would not recommend

For the most part the trail is well maintained but not marked well. One water crossing to get to the dam crest. Beautiful ....

Starts off easy. If the water is too high, you have to cross using several logs to get to the waterfalls. Not the best for dogs who aren't water friendly. Bigger dogs only for climbing the actual falls.

The waterfall is bone dry. Ok hike but more of a atv/off road terrain. The creek was nice with small falls.

Hiked this trail today and did not see the man-made bridge. The water was too high to cross without getting soaked so I didn't bother. I also couldn't tell where I should cross if I had wanted to. It is evident that the opposite bank gets foot traffic, so I assume I would have found the trail if I'd crossed but I can't be sure. From what I did walk, it was a pretty hike.

First to Review

Park at the hairpin turn on Aston Mountain Road. The trail is very well used and muddy along most of its length, depending on recent rainfall. There will be 2 points where the trail cuts down to Spring Brook and crosses. Just after the second point, continue straight and you'll come to where the path crosses some slippery rocks. After crossing here, you'll pick up Panther Creek. Cross Panther Creek towards the reservoir and follow the trails to Watres Falls. Roughly 0.8 miles, one way with minimal elevation gain until you start climbing the falls to the reservoir. If the falls are flowing, you should hear them before you get to Panther Creek. *Edit: I was informed after the hike that there is a man made bridge roughly 1/8th of a mile further up Panther Creek from where I crossed. I can't confirm this yet, but it may be a way to keep your feet dry.
