Walked the trail first. It was a workout. Went as far as the meadow at the top and came back down. Then walked the creek bed & up to multiple waterfalls. Did not go too far as the water became too deep. It was beautiful & challenging.
Bug spray is a must!

Great hike! The falls at the top are wonderful, with a nice shallow swimming hole at the bottom.

challenging and awesome. Will be back

Loved walking through the stream the whole way. Great place for kids to play in the creek, and then in the water hole at the end. Gorgeous water falls.

Great scenic hike. Wear shoes you can confidently walk in water in tho. Only drawback was we did not.

Great sneaker creeking! We walked up the creek, which was flowing but not too fast, with 4 children (ages 4 to 9). We made it to the boy scout bridge. Some challenges of course! We then walked down the trail that looped around and didn't go near the water. Felt good about that choice as going down through the water could have been a bit treacherous! overall a great hike!

We hiked in the gorge up to the top. It was a hard hike, couple hard waterfall climbs. Luckily the water was low and not moving fast. Your feet will get wet.
You can climb up one side, cross and go down the other side. It’s a steep climb and descent but doable and fun!!

Moderate physical difficulty, but the creek bed makes for a treacherous hike — lots of loose and wet rock, so make sure you are confident with your balance and footing before taking the creek bed trail. Impressive views of the rock faces really gave a unique hiking experience. Bring a change of socks for after the hike because your feet will get wet.

Back down, I took the trail on the right ridge of the gorge, which was a safer and faster option. Easy to follow and also provided excellent views of the gorge. Access it as you pass the bridge — you can see it on the map as the black dotted line on the northern side, paralleling the gorge. I enjoyed doing this ‘loop’ and would highly recommend doing both trails to get a change of scenery.

A fun scenic short hike. Very hot today and was refreshing to wade in the water.

Loved this! Wore flip flops and was fine but I wish I had my keen water shoes that have straps. Walking in the water was the best part on this hot day. There is a “pool” at the second waterfall and it is worth wearing your bathing suit!

Beautiful hike but didn't make it all the way. The bugs became horrendous. We followed the creek up past the bridge then turned around and took trail from bridge back to parking lot. I would start earlier in the day when it's cooler.

My go-to hike when visiting Canandaigua. Brings me back to my roots.

My favorite hike in the Finger Lakes. Plenty challenging with great views.

Short hike with amazing views. Your feet will get wet. There are a few trees down that make it a little more challenging to get to the 2nd waterfall but not impossible.

I t is extremely difficult to find a stay on a land trail. The route is not hard, just hard to find, as there is minimal maintenance there. If you want to hike in the water it was easier.

Probably my favorite trail in the western New York area. It's a good challenge, fun, and beautiful. It took two tries to get through the whole trail, but well worth it.

Great hike

Awesome hike and very rewarding. If you follow the gully the whole way it can be tricky at points, especially on the way down. 5/5 recommend, I can’t wait to hike it again.

Great hike, saw a 4" Polyphemus moth which blended well with the leaves. There was also a peaceful pond with harmonious frogs that had a bench dedicated to the Finger Lakes Founder.

Not really a loop, but great hike.

Very challenging. The trail to get to the falls was washed away (a lot of rain had happened when I went week before last) so I had walked along the river, there is a HUGE dam of trees currently before the second falls, climbed over thinking the water would be just as shallow on the other side and ended up in chest deep water. The second falls were beautiful though.

This was a lovely hike. Be prepared to get wet to get the rewards and views. The maintained trail brings you along the creek. To get to the two spectacular waterfalls you must cross the creek and go off trail. The first large waterfall is pretty easy to get to. To get to the second large falls you must be adventurous. You will get wet, muddy and need to climb over fallen trees. There were great little flowers in bloom (5/27) and a nice water flow. It got crowded as time went on. Great that people were out in nature, bad if you wanted peace and photos.

Long and Peaceful Walk, couple steeper sections, but overall a great way to spend an afternoon, even after a day of rain the trail was only a little wet in a handful of sections, will certainly go back

Love this place! It can be hard to do without getting your feet wet but can be done. Summer time afternoons tend to get packed fast here!

I'm partial to out west, but this was as close to climbing as I think I could get. Fun hike. You can stay mostly dry if it hasn't rained for a while. Take the fork to the RIGHT and keep climbing till you get to the wall. If you climb the wall, the right side seems safest, it is slick, so be careful and don't be afraid to get wet. After you reach the top climb up to the right, there are plenty of tree roots to help. This will put you back at the orange trail markers which eventually lead to blue and back to trailhead. The bugs were annoying, so bug spray might be necessary.

Nice, quick in & out walk(1.1 mile).Busier than some of the other local hiking spots. Better to walk the creek bed, shoes will get wet anyways. Also, ropes at both falls. Access to rim trail from there(nothing of interest). The hike is the creek bed!
