Went for a quick little hike here with my fiancé today. The trailhead was a little difficult to find even with using the AllTrails directions. If attempting this hike in the winter, do not go into the main entrance of Grafton State Park. Instead enter from N Long Pond Rd from Rt. 2. There was a decent amount of snow on the ground and even though it is all gravel road it was well plowed and drive-able even in my Chevy Cruze. The trail itself was packed snow with a couple ice patches that were easily maneuvered with micro spikes. The hike was pretty easy and is mostly flat with a few gradual climbs, be cautious about half way in during ascent there is a large ice patch. The day was a perfect mix of party cloudy/sunny and we were able to climb to the top of the Firetower which was super windy at the top! We were offered a 360 view of all of the mountain ranges in the area! Definitely will come back and try it out in the summer.

This trail I believe is not for beginners. It is very off trail. You should expect to walk through water falls, rocks & mud. I am not a fan of this trail in the winter, and it is much more difficult. However, I LOVE hiking it in the summer time. It was nice to walk about a mile up the trail and see a random, yet beautiful waterfall there. I recommend in the summertime. The winter, not so much.

It’s a nice place to walk easy to get to my wife and I use it quite a bit

Great winter hike .

Rough trail because of snow and ice but well worth the extra effort.

beautiful landscape and natural gardens. super easy to walk around lake, picnic lunch and relax.

I've hiked all of the trails up there, for most of my life-another one of my go to trails. I love the challenge, (I'm 74) the views alone can't be beat! get out there and enjoy!!

Excelent trails. Love the bog

Great trails, well marked and well maintained. Would be muddy in spring when snow melts or after a rainfall.

Extremely easy, flat trail. Not very long and all open trail. Perfect with kids and dogs. Beautiful falls at the end.

Love it!

Very enjoyable trek through the woods...didn't encounter another soul on a cold morning until I hit the junction with the Anthony's Nose trail. Decided to extend the hike about 0.8 miles and take in the views from the aforementioned Anthony's Nose. If time allows this is a must stop...gorgeous views of the Hudson River and Bear Mountain.

Great route with superb views. Not that the route has been updated to be clearer at the point where you leave the blazed trails.

Couple of detours necessary on Undercliff because of ice

Really beautiful trail. Gentle terrain. A lot of twists and turns. As long as you keep the app open it’s pretty easy to follow the correct path. Would highly recommend.

Went snowshoeing 1/12/19 after 8-10” fresh snow on unbroken trail. Absolutely wonderful trail with many ups n downs, really well marked, spectacular views on an azure blue pristine ice cold day! Temps started at 5* and ended at 13*. Highly recommend this trail for folks of moderate fitness. We are all in our 50’s and it was a good workout. Very good trail!

The view at the end of the hike was breathtaking. I went in winter time and it was incredible seeing the falls half frozen. If you are hiking this hike in the winter time it may be tricky! Me and my dog made it but I feel we were on the wrong trail. After reading reviews it looks like you need to go to the left of the bridge. However, we went to the right and followed a beaten down deer path. The destination was the same but it may have made it a little trickier scaling down the steep and icy ravine with no rope guidance. I recommend this hike but be weary it’s not easy and you will get wet.

Nothing to see on the trail

Nice, simple terrain trail. Not very well marked. The gunfine going from the adjacent firing range was freaking out my dog about a mile in. It beats mentioning that it is hunting season, so be careful when you go beyond the service road at the 0.5 mile mark.

Nice quick loop, well marked.

A nice nature walk. Not marked easy to keep walking in loops.

Hiked the Yellow loop today - counter clockwise. Nice trail - not too strenuous but a good workout. Had the whole place to myself. Some nice views along the way. Well marked trail throughout.

A really fun and fairly easy winter hike. A great trail to snowshoe. Trail is easy to follow and the view at the top is amazing for the amount of effort put in.

I thought it was a beautiful scene. There is a bit of a walk before the lake itself, but that’s not a big deal. My best friend and I went, and I brought my dog. It was nice way to get fresh air and take some Instagram-worthy pictures. We went in January, so it wasn’t incredibly crowded either. If I were to go back, it would be to do some running or to get my dog out again. People were friendly and the trail itself wasn’t difficult, so it should be perfect for that. Me not going back doesn’t speak to the trail as much as it’s because I’m always looking for a new place to adventure. If ever I’m looking for somewhere familiar just to take it easy, this would be an option.

Nice hike, a little confusing to find where it begins but if you follow the map and markings you can do it. It turned the Dover Church has a lot of history, read info at the beginning of the trail, you’ll be surprised. Wonderful views, very accessible, short!

Beautiful, slippery

Great hike has some really good hills to get your heart rate going. Went during the winter and it was super quite.
