Nice, easy hike through the forest. I like starting at yellow and following through to red, uphill for a bit of an easy workout.

Good set of trails. 3 main trails and a number of other unofficial trails.

Watch out if you are trying to go on yellow the whole way the bridges are out so it may be best to avoid for a bit.

Love this place. Something for everyone

The water fall is small, and the water doesn't seem like its suitable for swimming in. The Trails are not difficult, and are good for kids and dogs

Hiked the Red trail today w/ a student. A good workout for her & a good walk for me. Went left at the trail split & the downhill portion was tough for my student. Will go right next time so we get the uphill climb.

Love. Good hiking, foresty, gorgeous water, and the falls are a short hike from parking. If it weren't for the bugs I'd lay around on the mossy banks all day.

Luckily we had a picture of the trails because it got a little spotty right before the falls, and we continued on the yellow instead of back tracking to blue so luckily red connected easily to yellow. Very populated today with lots of dogs (off leashes)

Love this trail! It's wide open and flat. Perfect for young kids. Not ideal for those seeking a workout.
Parents need to be careful near the river as there are several steep drop offs along the edge of the trail. I bring my dog and my mini goats here all the time.

Easy, with beautiful river views. Went in early spring 2017 and was able to easily complete, even with snow still on the ground.

I walked to the falls and set up my hammock right along the river. I was so happy with this trail. Perfect spot for lounging by the water!

Beautiful forest, the waterfall was worth slipping down all the ice. Absolutely stunning.

Was the only car in the lot when stopping by for a quick hike with my dog in the late afternoon. Markings weren't great but found the core trail eventually. Pretty flat and easy trail.

We had a really hard time at this trail. trails are not clearly marked and it says the trails are good for biking but where ever we ended up, unless you are a professional mountain biker there is no way you can get up and down some of those hills, so we ended up pushing and pulling our bikes up and down about 10 hills, not fun. And we got lost because of the lack of markings on the trail, what should have been maybe two miles and about 45 min took us 2 hours and dumped us onto the main road, no where near where we parked. Very frustrating!

Nice easy hike. Quite a few people there on a Thursday morning. Well-marked trails and points of interest.

It is a great hike for beginners, I think my only issue with the trails is how infrequent some of the trails are marked.There are markers and you can easily get back on track but at one point my friend and I got lost on the yellow trail because for a good 20 minutes there were no markers on the trail.

Monday, June 27, 2016

The yellow route is over 4 miles there and back.
