We went on 3/28, and there was a lot of debris on the first part of the trail, before the trail splits. We found some icy spots and a lot of mud.

Go under power lines to get there from station road. The parking area is very small. There are trail markers here and there. Old cars on right when you go in. Follow the stream if you lose the markers. There is a mine area you will come across. So cool. Climb can be steep at times but is worth it. There are two places you can go to the top for different pictures.

Super muddy on East-west trail and part of bluffs trail. Rock beach was easy to navigate but there was a mudslide that my dog chose to enjoy.

Parked at convenient overlook. Very moderate trail through varied terrain. The trails are well marked although I didn’t see one called Hither Hills Trail. Suggest to skip the easternmost part of the path as it goes onto the road and doesn’t add anything in terms of beauty or interest. (Actually goes past a carting company. What is that part for??). Otherwise nice views of the water and lively plant life. Laurels? Azaleas?

This is more of a neighborhood trail. In the middle of a Orchard Park, NY community.

hiked on Wednesday 4/1, a tough hike but definitely rewarding! trail conditions were great. wet muddy in a lot of places but easy to get around. could have been much worse. hiked in boots, no snow gear needed. wasnt too crowded either

Great trail! Outer loops are not well marked and gps is not very accurate. Tower was amazing!

Completed Cascade and Porter on 4/3/2020 with our dog, Beef (his first two ADK High Peaks!). Conditions were very slippery, and the snow melt is making the bottom half very wet. Trail was manageable without microspikes, but the way down was slow. Despite the wet conditions, still a great hike!

It’s been a while since I’ve done this trail. It’s beautifully maintained and serene, but not a whole lot to see or any amazing views. I prefer this for a solo hike (it’s looooong for kids). I do love that they have added some plaques with information on the park and some new trails off the main trails that I’ll explore next time. My tracker somehow paused midway around the lake, the full trail is closer to 4.2 miles I believe.

Muddy and icy but a nice quick jaunt on a rainy day.

In the spring or after rain stay on the bluff trail. East-West trail was 75% muddy. The bluff is beautiful. Need to come back in summer and walk the shoreline. No swimming or dogs on beach.
