Went for an easy hike with my dog. He loved it. The water was high because of all the rain so we couldn’t make it past a certain part of the trail where the river had come up. Beautiful and easy though.

Nice hike! Took about 2 hours to walk both ways. Scenic view and a decent beginner trail.

Was an overall good trail. Parts got kind of wet where there wasn’t a clear way to get across other than to take your shoes off or try to balance on the few rocks above the water.

Lower fall was gorgeous. Overall trial was really nice. Definitely need to watch your step and keep an eye on the yellow trail tags. You snake along the river the whole way. At about the half way point the trail changes to being extremely overgrown and narrow. I wasn’t trying to end up with a bunch of ticks on me this time of year so i turned around here. Got pretty muddy at that point too.

Beautiful hike however encroaching construction towards the far end of the trail makes the path hard to follow. But it was certainly an adventure!

Loved it my dog had so much fun running in and out of the water. The bugs weren’t to bad as long as u don’t stop for a long break!

Nice little hike. We stopped at the lower falls and it got a little busy. There are a lot of dogs off leash which was nice to see.

Great hike! Pretty well marked, there are only a few parts that are very grown in and the trail gets narrow. I hiked with my two dogs and they loved it - lots of water for them. Make sure to bring waterproof shoes!
The falls are wonderful and hiking along the stream is super nice.

This is a nice serene easy trail for a couple or family. Let ya of bigs so definitely come prepared. Not a long trail at all, but the waterfall on the end/on the way is quite beautiful. Great place to explore and make lasting memories.

I've been coming here for years . pretty easy hike with beautiful view

Nice river walk, payoff is nice with a closed in pond and waterfall

What a nice place to hike. I was surprised by the abundance of different mushrooms in that forest. They grow in many colors and different sizes.
Luckily we used bug repellent so the mosquitoes didn't bother us too much.

great hike, waterfalls where really nice. We had recently got rain so they had a nice amount of water. Varied terrain, ups, downs, rocks and roots.

awesome. you follow the water the entire way practically. the falls are gorgeous. Trail markers tend to be far apart. I didn't bring my phone to track my route and i definitely regretted it. I got confused a couple times and had to backtrack find the last trail marker and get back on route. I'll definitely be back time and time again. great find.

Easy hike with some nice views, I absolutely loved how the sun hit the moss-covered rocks, managed to get some nice photos.as for the falls I would say the first one is the best one.
If you don’t bring a map or use the app then I can see some people getting lost on their first time. Overall it was a decent hike with minimal effort required.

Nice scenic hike. I loved the waterfalls! Trail was poorly marked on the way back and we got a bit lost other than that no complaints.

My wife and I loved this trail. While the 1st falls were an attraction we found that the rocky gurgling brook with abundant moss-covered rocks made for a serene beautiful trek. Eventually, the brook opened up into a large beaver flooded area but the wooded walk was still beautiful. The trail appeared to be recently remarked with yellow plastic strips to follow. There were only a couple places with momentary glitches that the trail was a little tricky to follow. One was where a new house had been built and trees down to the brook were cut to make a vista for the house. Just follow the brook the entire trail stays close to the brook. We enjoyed a lunch repast not far beyond the house on boulders that seemed to be designed by nature for us to comfortably sit above the brook while we dined. A little farther up there was bridge that seemed to go to another trail marked also with yellow. We stayed on the main trail without crossing the bridge. The next tricky part was just before coming to the middle falls when the trail led to a bridge with a clear-cut and no trespassing signs beyond. When you get to the bridge look to the right there are markings there not easily seen. The trail there moves away from the clear-cut and the beaver flooded area. The middle falls are not far beyond hidden in a gorge type area. There is a sign when you arrive. The 3rd falls is a little distance beyond, impressive in a good sized drop and open area at the bottom. We did not linger long as the mosquitoes were aggressive. Interestingly we ran into people coming from a parking are at that end of the hike near the 3rd falls. We actually only met one other group who completed the hike as we did. It was a delightful day and we thoroughly enjoyed this hike.

Very cool spot! My friends and I didn’t walk the whole trail but we walked up by the brook for a bit and found some cool little spots to hang out. I also climbed the main waterfall which was a blast. Also went off the main trail and found a few abandoned camp sites and a super old foundation. Can’t wait to return!

This is a beautiful hike and very easy. There are brook trout above the first falls that can be caught on small spinner baits.

The first fall was easily reached and beautiful. Not worth trying to go past first fall. We proceeded to the next falls but never made it. After an hour of hiking through very narrow paths that were overgrown and horribly marked we decided to turn back. We must have stopped 6 times to check the map on this app and to try and find any signs of a path marker. And the mosquitoes were just horrible. Will never go past the first fall IF I go back at all.

This trail was awful !!!!!!! It’s literally just all woods , and the trail is poorly marked so be prepared to get LOST ! Nothing much to see besides just the waterfall that’s there but that’s IT! I would never go back and it’s really not worth it at all.

Perfect for an easy day of hiking. I bring my dog off leash and he loves it. There are some areas that are a little overgrown and you have to guess where the path would be. Nothing that makes it too difficult to follow. Chubby hiker approved.

Trail not marked well. Large section was clear cut and Unpassable due to mud. my two daughters my dog and myself crossed over a small bridge to get on the other side the trail disappeared
very disappointed

Love this place it’s beautiful. Very well marked. Was very upset to see that someone seems to be bulldozing in a section which has taken out a bunch of trees and caused that section to flood out and be a muddy mess. So very sad I thought there were rules in place about building and altering land that close to the wetlands

Great trail. Flat for the most part, good incline towards the end to get to upper falls. Perfect for the doggo, purgatory brook is along the entire trail and is great for a water loving pupp. The falls are beautiful, all 3. I went at the end of April, water flow was heavy, but did not affect the trail itself.

This hike was beautiful! You walk along a brook most of the path. I took my daughter and grandson here this past weekend and we had a great day....until my grandson and I slipped on a rock crossing the brook and we fell in. I thought it was funny and laughed the whole way back to my car. He didn’t find it so amusing (he is 7 years old). So, with that said, we only made it about 1.5 miles in and had to turn back. I’m looking forward to going back real soon though.

Falls are nice.

Beautiful trail, was very icy, but worth the effort with little kids.
