Great quick hike beautiful waterfall. There was a dusting of snow there today

Have been here a few times. Always a great walk/hike. My dog loves it too!

Amazing trail!! So many options with various difficulties and views.

Clean and easy to get around, trails well marked.

Super scenic! Easy reverse hike (downhill first). Pretty sure it’s only 1 mile total.

Beautiful area. But the trails were not marked well at all. I saw trail names and colors painted on trees, but not at all intersections. There were a few intersections where we had to just pick a way to go. Went with three other adults and a baby. Do Not Bring a baby carriage unless it’s used in off roading and rough terrain. Lots of hills, but great for a first timer without a baby carriage

This is a great place to start off roading. I just started and went there with my buddy and there were some nice mud puddles and some rocky areas... definitely easy but can give you an idea of what you need to get I order to do more difficult off roading trails.

Pretty straight forward, crowded however in summer with a lot of of bathers in the falls! Fun for kids.

It was a nice trek while camping in copake falls

We come here weekly and we love it! Trails are marked and well maintained! You hardly see anyone on the trails, you may pass 2/3 other hikers/bikers. After reading other reviews if you’re seriously complaining about bugs in the woods and off leash dogs in a nearly deserted forsest maybe this isn’t the place for you.

a lot of tree roots and rough rocks if you are trying to go for a run.

Beautiful hike! Great for dogs! Shady and beautiful!! Will go again!

great trail, excellent for the kids. it was a hot day so the water felt great.

I've been hiking here for probably 15-20 years and have covered most of the trails. I like hiking here BUT there are a few things to take note of. First is that there are a LOT of off leash dogs. My dog doesn't like other dogs, so I can't bring him here because big dogs bounding up to him with no leash scare him. I also run into bikers on the trails that prohibit them pretty often. I also agree with some of the other reviews that it tends to be pretty buggy.

Overall, I agree with most reviews on here, it just depends what things bug you and what things don't. Its pretty well populated so you feel secure but if you're someone who likes secluded hiking, you won't get that until you get back towards route 1 quite a bit. The trails are generally well marked BUT there are a lot of them and they criss cross and overlap a lot so you'll definitely need a map with a marked planned route or a GPS/app to help you out

Tooooo buggy. Started off with all natural bug repellent, did not work. Switched to deep woods Off, did not work. Just ended up turning around. Not to mention the continued Route 1 traffic noise.

Great views and the waterfall is breathe taking!

Great first time here. Did the green trail. Didn't get lost. Will come back and try the red trail next. Trail markings were good.

Beautiful!

Easy 3/4 mile stroll up to the falls. Nice falls but overrun with jackasses not heeding the no swimming or diving signs. Loud and full of humanity on a warm weekend. Nice to see it but I don't think I'll be coming back. Not as spectacular as, say, Kent Falls, and just too many people. Parking is also a mess.

the kids and I loved it (10 & 12 yrs old)! we explored for almost 4 hours and only saw 8 people! Very peaceful. The trail was a bit confusing but that added to our fun.

This short walk along a stream on a hot day when many people were cooling off walking around in the water was really nice! No swimming by the actual falls (strictly enforced). Super crowded with families and lots of people and dogs.

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.

This is a nice way to see the eastern part of Martha's Vineyard. Take the ferry to Vineyard Haven or Oak Bluffs to gain access to the bike path. The bike path is not continuous but covers over 80% of the route recorded. From Vineyard Haven pass through East Chop and check out the lighthouse on Telegraph Hill. Continue to Oak Bluffs then on to Edgartown (passing a good mile of beach area) where you can catch another short ferry to Chappaquiddick Island. Continue on Chappy Road east to the Trustees property at Cape Poge. This is a nice area to beach or go overland to the northern part of Cape Poge to see the Poge Lighthouse. A wonderful ride!

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.
