Great hike

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.

Was a very nice hike. Definitely a challenge right now due to snow coverage that is melting. Trail is slippery so hiking boots with really good traction or metal spikes are suggested. Beautiful view once you hit the top!

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.

Very comfortable walk with kids and older dogs.

Great trail. I’ve done it three times since March has started. If you want more of a challenge take the trail counter clockwise starting with the blue dot trail and taking the red dot down. Much steeper inclines going up so it’s a nicer workout plus you get to see all the falls first and the hike down is much quicker after you summit

Great trail that's well maintained. I really love the boardwalk they put in through the marshy areas. Very easy walk with plenty of birding opportunities. I'd say it's even worth repeat visits throughout the year.

We went out on this trail after a huge storm and it was absolutely amazing! I can only imagine how beautiful it is when everything is green and in bloom. The difficulty and time needed to complete the hike increased a bit due to the amount of snow which had accumulated, but it was more than worth the effort. The view is perfect!

Beautiful trail. Nice and simple and great all year round - peaceful in the Winter, gorgeous in the spring-fall

Nice walk around a lake. Some parts of path are uneven from tree root growth. Lake has a play ground for the kids. And if you are into fishing the lake has bass, sunfish, carp, catfish, and stocked trout.

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

Trail was a little hard to find but the view was amazing!

My little pup was in HEAVEN here! Tons of playful pups to chase around, ponds and streams to get into, and wide open space as well as trails. Wouldn’t really recommend it too much for non- dog lovers and it was very wet & muddy so be prepared for bath time afterward.

Awesome spot, has multiple trails. An array of wildlife can be found here and there is a nature center you can go in and learn about the trail. Also very safe I have seen police patrolling the trail routinely. Also you can pick up maps under the pavillion near the parking before starting the trails.

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!

Not really a hike, just a great weekend stroll.

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

Amazing to find such a large outdoor area in Clifton; great view of NYC and many geocaches for a bit of fun while hiking; spotted many deer during my hike which really helps make you feel farther from the city life

Excellent trail!

simple and easy but still a nice trail through a marshy swamp.

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.

Favorite NJ hike. Red dot has some rock scrambling towards the top and blue dot is very rocky to descend. Would recommend hiking boots not sneakers. Really fun hike

Rocky, steep in sections, but the view is worth the climb!

very wet this time of year be prepared to walk in 4-6 inches of water for a few miles . Feb 26. views do not disappoint. beautiful little series of falls at the bottom.
