love this trail. pretty easy. a bit overgrown this time of the year in some places, but with sharing my path, I'm hoping more ppl can knock it down. nice quick afterwork hike. unless your me and like to stop and take a ton of pics. I also do this in birkenstocks. not completely reccomended, but easy enough that you can.

Has potential but is not maintained and the trails are horrifically marked. Avoid the blue bird trail.

The trails aren't maintained, lots of mud in spots. Some trails aren't marked so can lead to navigational confusion. There is a trail off to the left, directly after the first bridge that will take you down to the creek bed and a small waterfall, that was nice. That concluded our campaign for Wolfe.

Walked the whole trail. I wouldn't recommend the pond trail. It's all mud. And I'm pretty sure I did the hill trail backwards because coming down was pretty intense.

This could be a nice trail. There are waterfalls, meadows, evergreen stands, so much beauty. The problem is there seems to be no maintenance. There is so much mud that several parallel trails have popped up. There are downed trees crossing the trail. The trails are marked, but intersections are confusing. It could be a great little trail, but it is just okay.

really muddy right now (April 29, 2019) nobody else on the trail for the time I was there, peaceful

You need mud boots for this hike! Excellent hill climbing trails. Not sure where the actual trail is there are several groomed trails we just followed them. No trail markers on the trees.

very nice place for hiking, lot of nature to see. one long stretch is very muddy but it adds to the charm. I'll be back soon.

paved walking trail with some wildlife and lots of trees. follow the river, do all the loops and you can get 6 miles out of it in one pass.

This trail is steep going up and very steep coming down but, it is a nice quick hike. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a moderate hike.

Grew up here. Love this trail, do it every so often.

Visited here early August on a Sunday morning. It wasn't super busy and I passed no one on the trail. Trails are well maintained; half is shaded by the woods, and the other half was in ther open. It's a quick loop with nice views of the lake, and I observed a belted king fisher.

unmarked, poorly maintained, confusing, with a view of the intersection of three highways as your only reward

Not hard to find: NY 7 to the Old State Road sign, straight east under the railroad tracks, past several streets on the left. Wittman Road is the first right (after N Broome Rd on the left). Wittman is just a gravel driveway for a family home, with "No Parking" signs at the trailhead. I asked a dogwalker and she said to park along Old State Road near Wittman. This trail would be much better with a few trail markers or map signs. If I make a set, who should I talk to about posting them? A couple of miles of easy to medium-incline trails, mostly rocky. Only one muddy runoff area made me use edge of path. Great view of Binghamton once you finally get up there., and some view east downriver to Johnson City, Vestal, Endwell. Way too much trash; I picked up thirty flat or small bits, but if I'd brought a big bag I could have removed a bunch of bottles and cans.

I do this hike a lot for conditioning. Very steep but still a great hike. The pond side is very easy though, great views as well.

I parked right in front of the gate. There aren’t any No Parking signs right on the trailhead. We had no issues. And the hike was beautiful! So peaceful, and such a great view, especially for being right outside of town. We loved it!

I was just there today & would recommend this park to any visitors who enjoy hiking. The falls & gorge are worth every step. However, the red trails get confusing because they are actually 3 separate trails that can lead you away from where you think you're going, unless you use a compass carefully & take a picture of the map near the parking lot. Beware that from the footbridge, the White Trail is straight ahead, despite the low red flags along the same route. To follow the Rim Trail, your first step after the footbridge needs to be an immediate sharp left. I suggest installing simple rustic signs indicating the beginning of specific trails at each end, as well as an arrow indicating the direction to follow. Also, I suggest using a few other colors so that each trail has its own individual identity.

great hike. bear left at the start to see the water falls below you. looking at the park map at the entrance, I do not recommend doing the large blue loop. it is not maintained and is more like crawling through animal paths. otherwise enjoyable. for any geocachers, check out the cache of the white trail.

Wildly steep but the view of the hill to come keeps you motivated, yearning to reach the top.

Very tranquil, many beautiful fungi, birds, and moths. Had to cross a brook near the parking lot, waded barefoot and then put my shoes back on. Because the lower meadow was flooded there were no ATVs, which (no offense) was fine with me. Trails were not marked except at the top of the hill, so keep the GPS going so you don't get lost.

Park over on Fuller and walk to beginning of trail. Pretty easy hike with gorgeous view near the top. Wouldn't recommend going if it is muddy out or has been raining a lot as part of the trail is where water run off goes.
