Great hike. Good diversity. Probably the most challenging you’ll get in Hillsborough area.

I completed a variation of this hike which included the Laurel Pond Trail to the Pumphouse Trail and the Boulder Garden Trail. The forest is beautiful and lush, but the lack of views on the route I took results in the hike being somewhat anti-climatic. My father used to bring my brother and I fishing at Laurel Pond and Wawayanda Lake when we were young and so I was eager to explore the surrounding woods a bit.

Just did this hike yesterday and there was a lot of snow on the trail. It was a fun hike with several rock scrambles and stream crossings. I can't wait to come back again when the flowers are blooming.

Great for Mountain Biking

Great hike. Newer park with nice trails

My daughter and I did this with a lot of snow on the ground. Because of that, I suspect it wasn’t as easy as noted. We had to find detours around paths covered in water. The loop was closer to almost 4 miles because of that. Even still, we loved it, though I had some scary moments crossing water.

I've done this a couple of times. It is really more of a walk than a hike in my opinion. Also, it is not as secluded as I would prefer.

Hiking counter clockwise on the loop trail you have steep ascent which is fun and challenging. After that it is very easy hike. Great views on the ridge at the top. I only wish graffiti artists would stay at home and people should be mindful to carry out all trash.

Really enjoyed hiking here. It was after recent snowfall so there was water on some of the trails, but that makes the hike better to me.

Very comfortable walk with kids and older dogs.

So much fun with the dog!

Beautiful place

I bring my 5 year old little girl out here frequently. She is able to complete the hike without any problems.

Easy relaxing but crowded with picknickers in summer

Great workout, varied terrain

Watch our for the blue trail, I ended up on a road and decided to walk back because I was confused. Otherwise great glute workout on the way up!

nice hike with great view.

Nice for an easy walk, I agree with other comments that it’s more of a sidewalk along the road than a trail by the river. Lots of green space for a picnic without being on top of other people. Definitely not the right choice if you’re looking for a hike or true nature walk. Can get busy without a lot of space for bikers to easily pass. Great views and decent parking.

No views

More of a nice walk on a sunny day; not a hike; also not the cleanest or most remote area ... crowded too. BUT the falls make for a great view and photos raising it to two stars

Excellent trail!

Good workout following the blue white and red. Not marked clearly and we did get turned around a few times. Glad I had the map on my phone because there are no trail maps at the kiosk

This place is very nice but my dog came home with hundreds of miniature ticks all over. I had to give him 3 baths and they didn’t come off. Horrible place for dogs.

Nice hike. I wish that the all trails map showed the other adjoining trails

was a good hike. took a lil longer than I thought.

Lots of parking at trailhead. The initial section is steep and covered in very loose gravel. May not be suitable for all skill levels as there are also some boulders to climb. Some parts of trail were blocked by construction. Heavily visited area.

With a good amount of stunning vistas and beautiful forest - and having to work hard for some the views - this hike was great. Granted, this was a 80 degree, clear day in February - the conditions could not have been better. Norvin Green never lets me down.

Not very difficult but it was beautiful and scenic

Nice to get out for some fresh air, but I could hear cars driving nearby the whole time, and the only sign I saw on the trail was very adequate: "Where's the waterfall?"
