Great hike

I enjoy this trail a lot. A little steep if you're a little out of shape but still doable. First time I did this hike was in the 80's with Cub Scouts. I've done it many times since. Recently at least once every or every other year. It never gets old.

Excellent trail for something slightly more than easy. Great view from the tower. Great for people of all sizes and ages. Our go to spot for a quick hike on a nice day. I've been here many times through the past 25 years.

Relaxing trail with beautiful views! Runners, horse-riders, bikers; lots of outdoorsy people! Make sure you explore the northern trails, too! Pretty amazing!

Great workout! The blue/red trail around the mountain is challenging even for an avid hiker but the view from the top is definitely worth it! The trail is well-marked most of the time but the marks are sometimes too far apart and it could be easy to get lost; this is true especially around the summit. It's quite rocky; so, make sure you have hiking boots/shoes on for stability. Rock climbing is also part of the menu with some additional dose of jumping over the streams, fallen trees, and steep, rocky downhills. Trekking pole is recommended.

Nice trail.

Unbelievable. Not for the faint of heart when it comes to heights. Petrified of heights but was able to conquer this track. Beautiful views, wildlife and all nature has to offer. Great way to spend Earth Day 2018.

It’s a nice hike on a gravel trail for the family but it was wall to wall people up and down making it less enjoyable. Perhaps try it on a cold and cloudy day.

Chauncey Peak-Giuffrida Park is a hidden gem. Just the right length with good hight and features to make you return again. Also an entry point for Lamentation Mountain.

It's a nice trail. There is a neat tunnel blasted through the rock out past the end of the loop. Nice with the family, not too hard.

Nice easy Sunday morning hike. Great birding opportunities.

Short walk and sweet views

Good for dogs, more trails than shown on map, moderate climb, a little tougher if you go along the falls.

Better for mountain biking than hiking

Beautiful hike, great for most levels. Our 6 & 8 year olds loved it and enjoyed the view. Best parking is on Bidwell Hill Road.

Great hike with a beautiful view of the falls!

Beautiful little park and nice trail, great for a few hours in the woods, bring a picnic too!

Great views from the summit. The hike up is a bit strenuous, but the way down is through a beautiful pine forest with the trail paralleling a beautiful brook.

Nice easy walk with a beautiful Gorge. Busy road sounds are audible for much of the trail though.

very nice. definitely has some steep steady inclines. great work out!

Rocky, hilly terrain with nice vistas from the peaks and marshes in the lowlands. Look forward to returning with my dog.

Great hike and took a full grocery bag of trash of the trail.

Very pleasant, well maintained. Several nice brooks and water features. Relatively low wildlife activity.

Not much of a hike, more of a walking trail than anything. Took the blue and white trails. The white trail has you serpentine a lot. The pond is very pretty though, especially on a sunny day!

Great hike. Took my 12 and 6 year olds along with our dogs. Perfect distance and beautiful views.
