Nice hike for a warm day, or for lunch by the Falls.

This is a short, easy walk to a waterfall. This time of year it's a trickle but I'm sure in the Spring it's worth seeing.
The app gives the wrong location. It's near Racquatte Lake. This needs to be corrected! This is a good place to give the dogs or kids a break from the car.

Nice waterfall, but it is nowhere near Piseco as Alltrails shows here. It is near Raquette Lake.

Very short but pretty. Was thinking it was .6 miles each way, oops just .3 each way for a total walk of .6. Waterfall is pretty.

Great hike!

Fairly easy trip on old road. Sucker bay is very nice and Sucker Brook has a great waterfall and bridge structure.

Great view of the lake. Lots of bugs. Easy hike but pay attention to roots.

Nice lil hike but the falls were very dry at a minimal trickle. Will have to try again when there is more potential for water.

Working on the Adirondack Waterfall challenge, we decided to visit Death Falls, aka Hidden Falls which isn't too far from our home. A little park-n-hike to a beautiful waterfall , at just about 3/10th of a mile, it didn't take anymore than a 10 minute walk to get there. Hidden in the trees on a small brook, this little GEM is a must for all ADK waterfall seekers.

Did this hike on an unusually hot Fourth of July. The description is very accurate. The first part of the hike is very easygoing. The trail to shallow lake becomes a little more difficult with exposed roots, some muddy patches and the bog. Here you will need to cross the small tributary using three long logs serving as the foot bridge to the other side. Once you cross the bridge you are a little more than halfway to the lake. Most of the trail is in beautiful wooded paths, the exception being the bog. We found the second half of the hike to be very buggy. The canoe mentioned in the description is now just shattered remnants lying near the shore. For whatever reason this does not appear to be a busy trail although we found it well maintained and clearly marked. We only saw one other family on the hike on this busy holiday in the Adirondacks. Overall it’s a pleasant hike if you can withstand the bugs.

Did the hike today, lots of mosquitos, Falls was more of a trickle. Not bad, got some good pics ...

Can park along the side of the road by the entrance. Very easy path to walk and only a slight hill in one part. The falls themselves were bigger than I expected! We went after there's been some rainfall in the area so big waterfall action - very muddy in some parts (almost lost some shoes!)

You can not park anywhere near this trail. Only for locals and so we could not visit

This trail is great. A short brisk walk with no incline to an amazingly tall waterfall. If you look around the right side of the falls, you will find a herd path going to the top of the falls.

Just a short walk but well worth it! It was raining when we went and there was a considerable amount of mud in one short spot. The Falls were running quite hard making it scenic.

Super quick hike to a nice waterfall. Pretty muddy today.

Not a great view. Keep on hiking through to big moose road. Stay overnight at one of the shelters or ponds.

Always a good easy hike/climb steep near the top. Typical of ADK hikes. Limited view from top depending on what's been cleared

This was a great father's Day paddle/hike combo. We packed up the kids, 4 kayaks and the dog and we were at the water's edge by 10am. We checked the GPS and it read 3.87 miles to the Sucker Brook trailhead, the winds weren't too bad so we headed out. After a bit the winds picked up and the waves were coming over the kayaks as we paddled across the open water so we kept to the shore a little closer than we had planned and added on a half mile but we were at the trailhead within 2 hours.

We traded our paddles and water shoes for boots and packs, enjoyed the hike, gave at least a quart of blood to the local skeeters and made a game out of how many deer flies we could take out (Acorn, our dog, was better at it than us). When we reached the summit we had some tired kids and a dog that spent the entire time chasing dragonflies. The summit was beautiful - the view, the warm sun -all of it was worth the effort.

We enjoyed some lunch and then it was time to come down...always quicker. We made it down in less than an hour and hit the water again..only to realize the winds had changed and the traffic had picked up so the water was rougher and we were against it -this required some rearranging of paddlers and route which took a bit longer but we kept it fun and safe.

Needless to say by the time we got to shore - almost 9 hours later - we were wiped. We had a great day, but we were ready for a bug free car! The dog must've agreed because she sat in one of the kayaks as we set the train up to carry the kayaks out and she wouldn't get out...she wanted a ride to the car! We carried her for about 10 feet which was enough for her to realize it wasn't as nice as the water and she was ready to get out. We made it to the car, had the kayaks on the trailer in record time and the kids were ready for ice cream! When we checked our track log we had almost 9 miles on the lake, 5.7 on the trails, 0.8 on the ports and some very happy, yet sore limbs.

A great paddle/hike!
