very easy trail with nice views of the river

I went down there with my 4 year old and we wished we’d worn water shoes and bathing suits. There were folks jumping off the rock cliff and swimming. It was beautiful.

Easy short walk to breathtaking views. Great hike with kids or if you are short on time.

what a view

The Falls hike was educational and the views great. A little too commercialized for me. They have another trail which is more of a challenge. The nature trail is a great hike but with no map and poor trail markings it was a challenge. I followed footprints but at one point led me to a dead end. I don’t know about you but it made me feel unsettled.

Very easy, short walk to spectacular views.

I was pretty annoyed at the high entrance fee ($12/person) but the views turned out to be worth it. I would call this more “sightseeing” than hiking. It’s like a series of boardwalks and stairs around the gorgeous falls. I can imagine this gets pretty crowded- a tour bus arrived as we were leaving. If the parking lot is full, you may want to find something else to do.

Easy, short trail with great views of Wilmington, Ausable River Valley, Whiteface and Esther.

Easy and pleasant until you reach the ski area, then you're wandering through old machinery, piles of junk and at this present time, construction. The part of the trail that includes the ski area is the actual ski slope which is over grown, the bottom of the slopes are all gravel and have zero appealing qualities. There are way way way better trails in the area, skip this one.
