Diamond Notch Falls are really special. They are at the beginning and end of this route. It was steep at parts. The viewpoint was awesome. The peak is maybe 5 minutes further in the woods. Invigorating dunking under the cold falls following the hike. Took us 5 hours RT. Made significant stops at the viewpoint and falls.

I hiked it last fall after Labor Day. I really like the views on the last half of the hike plus walking thru the closed campground was strangely enjoyable.

A nice flat hike with a short climb at the beginning. The lean-to is so quiet and perfect except for the mosquitoes.

082119 went to Rollins Pond ..according to all trails directions looking for the trailhead. I did not find any trailhead at the GPS location specified in the previous reviews however I did go to the end of campground and found the otter Trail which led around floodwood pond which was quite nice. I found a nice swimming hole and took a swim with the dogs. it's just a basic little Forest hike but it was fine for a rainy day

What a wonderful trail! The trail has since been extended from mertensia rd park until 332 adding roughly 1.6 miles. It’s very flat and wide trail perfect for running, biking, stroller friendly. I frequently run or bike this trail. My favorite section is Fishers Fire Dept- PowderMill Park. Lots of great scenery, more shade than some areas and a beautiful mural along the way.

Summit was not the best but we loved this hike as a family with two small children last year!

Overall a decent hike we enjoyed it with both of our children and our 4 year old was able to hike it on his own with minor assistance.

Overall this was probably one of the worst hikes we’ve done. By no means do I consider myself an amazing hiker but this trail was horrendous. The trail is pretty much completely washed out on both yellow and blue. We went yellow first and took blue back down and it was less washed out but still washed out in many places so what was a steep decent is even steeper. I do not recommend this trail at all. We did go as a family and had two small children in tow but I suggest picking another hike over this one.

We did this loop two weeks ago. It was 65 degrees and partly cloudy except for one rain shower. Everyone says bring 5 liters of water but i only went through about two liters but again it was cooler weather. I’m sure on the macomb slide i would have drank more if it was hot. Macomb slide was epic! It wasn’t as crazy as i expected but i wouldn’t want to climb down it so make sure you hike up. The macomb trail was well traveled but not well marked. Making your way up the slide, just go up! At the top of you hug the left there is a trail. It seemed like people went right and had to back track. Once you make that push up to macomb you mostly stay up in elevation until heading to hough. Macomb to south Dix went by very fast and was easy until the rock scramble. The rock scramble wasn’t difficult but it did take some energy out of you. Lots of great views. South Dix to grace was also a nice trail, pretty well maintained and a quick hop to get there. There is a trial on the backside of grace that goes literally 1-2 minutes and has great views of the backside. Worth the quick detour. Once back to south Dix the trail to hough is again not marked and it’s not very well maintained at first. At the bottom of the trail before you start to hike up again there is a flat spot and that is where the Lillian brook trail is and again not marked. You could easily pass it if you weren’t looking for it. Great views from a false summit and great views from the actual summit. Onward to Dix.. it was more of a push than expected. The junction trail to go down isn’t until the summit of beckhorn (.2 from Dix). You have to go up and over this very difficult v shaped rock. Even for myself being physical fit and an athlete i had trouble. You could go around but it looked very sketchy. Once you go over to Dix and back to beckhorn you make your way down i think 2 miles. Trail is steep but not as steep as i expected. Once at the bottom it’s 4 miles of pretty flat ground back to the car. All in all amazing views on every peak, the trails are well maintained just not well marked. You shouldn’t have issues following them.

It was a bit rocky in spots and steep in one but that is to be expected on a mountain trail. The smell of the balsam trees near the top make it worth the trip. So far our favorite NY trail.

Absolutely stunning views. Definitely a very easy hike, only the dry chasm trails were any challenge and even then not bad. There was a solid fee (18$) to enter but given the quality of the trails and maintenance it was well worth it. Inner trail was probably the best, going along the river down low but the big dry chasm was awesome too. Don't necessarily recommend the upper loop (green trail) as its more of a walk along the top than a true hike.

Great view for such a short hike! We went up the Long trail and down the short, but I recommend doing the opposite because the short is much steeper. We went up for sunset which was very pretty but the trees obscured the view slightly, although there is a clearing such that sunrise is probably amazing at the summit. Highly recommend, it's a great challenge for the short distance!

Great hike. Big elevation gains either way you go but well marked lots to see. Keep an eye out for the rock that looks like a bears face

Well-marked trail that’s shared with lots of bikers. While the trail is mostly flat, our group sought out the scenic outlooks and waterfalls along the way, which added distance and climb to the route. Scenic outlook is definitely worth it.

Gorgeous view. My two kids (9 and 12) were able to hike with minimal complaining.

Nice wooded trails. We did orange trail. Runs along creek. Lots of moss and beautiful trees. Orange salamanders. Will go back.
