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.

Excellent park

Great hike

Great hike. Newer park with nice trails

I did a 7-mile loop which included the Lookout Trail and a portion of Cannonball Run in a good amount of snow. The trails are well-marked and there were a lot of great views along Lookout.

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 hike. Was here the Saturday after the nor'easter storm. Could not complete the red loop to many downed trees. But, there was evidence that the trail was being cleared - to many trees down for a quick fix. Will be back to try again!

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.

Beautiful place

Easy relaxing but crowded with picknickers in summer

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

nice hike with great view.

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

Walked it today with my dog. We were all alone. Had to walk thru about 10 inches of fresh snow and many down limbs and trees. Because of the conditions it took me about an hour longer than usual.

Excellent trail!

Be careful of chiggers! Beautiful trek though!

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

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.

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.

Not very difficult but it was beautiful and scenic

Trail currently closed due to construction

Great time to hike. Temp 52F. Footing fair to good.

It’s all broke bottles, broken furniture and private property.

I have hiked this trail 3 times over the past month. Great hike with my two water loving labradors.

Walked the trail this morning with my wife and two labradors. Both dogs loved all the water along the trail. And we had the woods pretty much to ourselves.

Gorgeous trail. Walking through the rhododendrons was surreal and the lake views were beautiful. Definitely a hard trail in some places with quite a few rock scrambles, so be prepared to do some light climbing

Lame trail, most of it’s paved. Hate i wested my time.
