If you’re a first-time hiker this is the trail for you. There are just a few things you’ll need to know. First of all the bathrooms are all closed due to COVID-19. There is also a difficulty parking. It’s on a small street that is narrow, with no dividing lines. So drive slow! Furthermore many people park off the road which requires maybe a half mile walk to the trail entrance.Many people will be walking up the street. After you get parked whether it be down below or in the two small parking lots near the trail entrance. You need to know that many people go down the large gate and immediately see the waterfall that’s where it’s most crowded. The trail entrance you want is on the other side of the street going uphill. This trail Cliffside, hosts a stunning view! This trail also has a lake that you pass by as well and several waterfalls along the way. Now that you know about parking and what trail to walk on get out there and get those miles under your belt!

A lightly trafficked path… A relatively straight line through the forest, with a few muddy sections and some log bridges.. Then you take a left turn and reach the lake, which is pristine. A great spot to stop for lunch or read a book.

A lovely trail and very easy to follow… Except for the beginning which is not marked. I recommend starting at the end of the trail as marked. It is right opposite the parking lot. If you want to start the trail as marked, look for a gravel path heading up the hill next to the yellow speed sign. I went early in the morning, and it was not crowded at all.

This was a very well maintained trail. It is steep when returning back to the parking area. Otherwise it was an amazing experience, I would recommend showing up early. When we were leaving around noon the parking lot was full.

This trail was great. It was very well maintained and had everything you want in a trail - great views, waterfall, wildlife. Highly recommend. A lot of reviews mentioned the parking area being small (true) but I would add that it wasn't busy (I went in the a.m.). Good option if you are trying to avoid the crowds at the Del Water Gap.

Nice walk- leads to the boat launch very scenic. Easy trail mostly flat. My 8yr old could walk it easily.

Great trail! Beautiful walk through the woods with a lake, pond and the falls. Busy in the afternoon, go early to avoid overcrowding the parking lot.

Great trail, start early to avoid crowded parking lots, trail goes from easy to slightly difficult, you don't have to walk along the cliff the whole time, great views, make sure you check out Raymondskill Falls and bring lunch!

One of my favorite hikes in the area. Easy to navigate and not strenuous at all. Slight inclines in some places but very doable. The waterfall is beautiful and the trail actually takes you past a few more mini waterfalls. Bring a sandwich or some snacks to eat by the riverbank. Had a lot of fun here. Parking lot is small and fills up fast though so come early!

Loved this trail. Family friendly and pretty easy hiking. We went 2 weeks ago and saw a few snakes, and even some baby bears climbing up a tree! Just keep an eye out for any wildlife- we were fairly close to the bears. Not sure how common the bear sightings are but just thought I’d add it here. Safe and easy, I’d recommend for a nice walk. Lots of families and people with dogs.

Nice trail well kept with beautiful views on the top highly recommend

Easy hike. It says no swimming but people were jumping into the falls and hanging in the water. It was nice. Dog friendly

Recommend starting early before parking lot fills up. Main white trails are well maintained and easy. Side trails along ridge are narrow but offer wide views that was worth the single file walking. Enough varying side trails to follow that it kept a 3 and 5 year old entertained.

The beginning was steep but we managed with a two year old strapped to his back and a 3m old strapped to my front. The view at the end of the first climb even made our 2 year old say wow! Definitely worth it! Really loved it! Some parts on the ridge were a bit overgrown but passable.

Beautiful trail. It wasn’t a particularly difficult trail, easily managed it with kids. The lake is amazing and there’s a gorgeous overlook with seating at the top.

The eastern cliff trail is one of my favorites, other side of the road from the falls it snakes along the edge of the cliff, feels slightly dangerous but the views are outstanding. Done it twice with my 4&6 year olds.

Trails well maintained with good signage. Very level and with gravel in some areas. Beautiful waterfalls and views of the Delaware. Went early ~8AM and had the trails to ourselves

This trail system loops and the western section is alongside a series of waterfalls. If you’re worried that you are rusty it easy once you’re on the trail. Elevated in decline out.

Great trail. Many interconnected trails. Different parking trail access-points. Just enough meet and greets with other hikers.

The views on this trail were absolutely stunning! Multiple locations to stop and enjoy, even though some of the areas were temporarily closed. Easy hike and my dog loved every moment of it!

What a wonderful hike we had today! Started out our journey on another trail and came across this unexpected beauty! The waterfall was so peaceful and the view was just amazing. Highly recommended!

Peaceful, not super challenging trail apart from crossing few streams. You’ll have to walk on some improvised, man-made bridges. Fresh air on high altitude and great environment to put your mind at ease. It’s a bit rocky, so pay extra attention to the ground and wear appropriate shoes. Running not suggested. Watch out for ticks and use the deer insect repellent, as already in the start of the trail they’ll be all over you. The lake in the end of the hike looked amazing. Limited parking space, however there’s a bigger one 2-3minutes away.

Great well-maintained trail! Overlooks were a nice pay-off (bring a picnic to have at the scenic overlooks!).

I thought it was a lovey trail. Parked at Hackers and followed trail to Raymondskill Falls upper then lower level. Then followed trail down to base by water. Hike back up was a nice incline that was easy but got my heart rate up.

Hiked April 23, 2020. Highly recommend both of these falls, especially in spring when the water flow is impressive. Hackers Falls feels more "natural," due to Raymondskill having a boardwalk-type structure for access, but loved both falls.
