Great hike for the whole family, kids really had a great time.

Great for a family? Two parking sites one further away then the other. Our 7 and 9 yearold loved the hike and the falls. Room to go out on rocks which were safe for most, with the exception of very young kids or those with mobility difficulty. Well worth the trip.

Love this place. Nice place to get out in the woods on a regular basis.

Beautiful hike but very crowded.

I proposed to my wife here right after a snow storm in November. Beautiful spot any time of the year!

really nice flat trail with really beautiful scenery. unfortunately, the trail markings are a bit sparse and there isn't any kind of trail map or guide to help you figure out where you should go. I will say though that you should start off bearing left rather than right because it's a lot easier to figure out where you should be going than bearing right as the trail description suggests.

Simple easy trail!

Easy walk to a great waterfall

Amazing little hike. We parked at the Bish bash pull off and not at the state park so the hike was shorter. There are some small hills and the terrain is a little rocky at times. When you make it to the top and see the falls you will be in awe. You can take stairs down into the falls and climb the rocks to get some good picture or even cool of quick. No swimming signs are posted everywhere but a ton of people were in the water waist deep. Stairs are very step and uneven so be careful. Our 4.5lb Chihuahua went with us with zero issues. He loved being able to go into the water at the beginning/end of the trail. We camp in the area and this will definitely be a spot we visit often.

We went mountain biking on this trail. It wasn't a long ride, with a bit uphill and downhill. Not very crazy. Suitable for beginners. The trail is quiet. Nice scenary!

Lovely falls.

Gorgeous hike with many ladyslipper orchids to be spotted along the trails. Some fun, easy bouldering to be found as well. Will be going back to explore further in the very near future!

This trail is so magical and incredible its mind blowing

This is a nice relatively easy trail, yet the 7 mile loop can be very confusing. The trails, although marked, are not very well laid out, and if it wasnt for the Alltrails app and gps, we would have been 'lost several times'. Make sure you have the alltrails app to navigate properly. With that said, we had a fun day with a relatively easy dog friendly hike/walk!

Hiked here with my family two years ago and had a picnic on the rocks by the waterfall. Such a beautiful place, it’s a must go if you’re visiting the area.

Not good for kids. Had to park far from trailhead and there was no shoulder on a sharp curve. Couldn’t do it, unfortunately!

Amazing and blissful short little hike, well worth the incline challenge, coming from New York.

rough terrain in some areas, and some small inclines, but quite pretty and well kept

The waterfall was stunning. We parked on the Mass side but also chose to go along the NY side and back. It was a lovely hike!!

Love this area. Great for walking the dog & just hiking all the trails. There are so many little trails & a pond of you cross Lakeview road. I've been hiking here for years, often alone (4'11" female) & have never felt in any danger (for the reviewer TM that said women have been assaulted there) I've even locked my keys in my car here & some nice mountain bikers spent about an hour helping me get them out. One of my favorite spots.

Wow, what amazing day. It’s a short hike down on the MA side. We even did it in about a half of inch of snow. Be sure to wear warm socks or bring extras, very wet. But stunning falls. I will be back!

NY parking provides an easy family friendly hike to the falls. MA parking gives a short stint of challenging terrain down to the falls, a fun little burst of the hikers high!!

Not marked well. Lots of hills and rocks. Not as easy as everyone says.

I was going to praise the trail for its beauty, but when I was almost finished with the loop, the trail came abruptly to an end and I had to turn around and hike the whole way back at the end of the day when it was getting dark and I was out of energy. Plus the second half of the loop is not marked at all. The parts that are marked are not all on this map and I had to constantly refer to this app to figure out where I was. That didn’t help a lot and almost got me lost!

Great trails for biking and hiking , very friendly people there definitely coming back for more

Great, beautiful, peaceful trail. I just wish there was a better place to park closer to the trail head; its somewhat dangerous to walk around that curvy road, especially if you have a dog with you trying to wander in the road (we had to put ours in a backpack we got to the head) but we also went in winter and there was some snow that made the road even narrower. Either way we will definitely be back, the brook is just too gorgeous to pass up!
