beautiful place to enjoy with family

Very cool waterfall! A great place for a picnic to chill and watch the falls. Like others mentioned, not a "hike", but a cool, quick stroll.

Very nice. It’s not necessarily a “hike” (more like a nice stroll) but you get to see pretty waterfalls and forest. I think this would be a great walk for families with kiddos.

Awesome trail! I wouldn’t call it a “hike” because the trail is so well groomed and the terrain is very easy to navigate. Beautiful series of waterfalls.

5 stars for great views! Nice easy trail, waterfalls were full and beautiful today!

Falls were flowing well today. Easy for children. Did find a tick on my sons shoe so be watchful.

Trail started off overgrown and with no trail markers. Follow the state park border signs at the beginning and you'll get to the trail.

The entrance to Jacobs ladder trail is very hard to find but once on it you'll have silver metal trail markers guiding you. That being said, this trail is extremely over grown and the markers were very hard to find and in some cases they had fallen off completely. Be sure to bring a compass and a machete for this part!

Once you get to the top of scramble you'll be rewarded with a great view. From there you have a bunch of rock markers to guide you and then the rest is a breeze.

I definitely recommend this hike because of the amazing wildlife we ran into.

Super easy especially with a baby. Great views mostly shaded with trees which is nice when there are no clouds in the sky.

This was a great waterfall. A little disappointing when looking at the map there though. They had 3 waterfalls included in this hike. It appears the other two were on the other side of the road, which you couldn't get to. Still all in all the waterfall was very nice and a quick to get to.

Man this was worth the 1hr drive. Looking forward to go back once the weather gets better. If you’re from westchester looking for some very pretty views, Minnewaska has a lot to offer. Make sure you go on the Blueberry Run path. Photos do not do this place justice.

Go day after it rains.
