It's Open. I was at Raymondskill on 6/24/18. I spoke to a Ranger at the trailhead. The Hacker's Falls and Cliff Park Trails are now open. NPS webpage also lists them as open.

This trail was great! My 2 year old could walk it but yet slightly challenging. Wide trail. Easy to find. We felt perfectly safe. Absolutely would go again.

Beautiful area, and the falls were spectacular. A recent storm this year made a mess of the trees but fortunately the falls weren't really effected.

Great hike

Took this trail today, beautiful day. Once up the initial incline there are some beautiful views. I read this trail as being 5 plus miles round trip. We were so intune with the beautiful weather and views that we didn’t realize right before the knob that we had gone 5 miles already. BE ADVISED the full loop is 10 plus miles. Well I got a full workout today. Great trail in the winter highly recommend.

I hiked this trail New Year's Day and again a week later. It's beautiful and totally doable covered in snow. I ended up taking the trail along the cliff on the way to Milford Knob and then taking the main trail back to the parking lot.

Beautiful trails between the pine trees. Even though they were frozen the waterfalls were still gorgeous.

Be careful, the road leading to the trail is narrow and winding and has low visibility around curves. Definitely use caution so you don’t get into an accident

Fantastic hike with lots of beautiful things to see. Have done this hike multiple times and brought friends. I combine the falls and cliff trail.

Beautiful, beautiful spot. The waterfalls here are absolutely gorgeous. Totally worth the visit.

Honestly, I thought this spot was really cute and tucked away. If you enjoy easy and pretty nature walks this would be a good one to check out. Easier for children and elderly who are just looking for a nice and easy/short outdoor stroll.

First visit today, absolutely beautiful trails are marked and there is easy access for an old man like me. Other reviews were very helpful I plan on a return visit

Worth the visit to Gray Towers. Gorgeous grounds. Trail was a nice little walk- ended up walking back up road to mansion.

Great views, easy to walk.

Hackers was cool. I combined Raymondskill falls, cliff trail and Hackers falls into one hike. I had a blast. Here is my trip report.

Incredible hike. Awesome water falls, and views. Easy access to Pennsyvania's Tallest Waterfall.

Take the southern trail on my track to the bottom of the falls. Once you get to the river, cross to the other side to find a foot path leading to the falls upstream. You don't want to miss hanging out at the bottom of this beautiful waterfall!! Bring water shoes and a hiking stick to help with crossing the rocky river.

Great, relatively easy hike with lots of views. Some other hikers were around as the afternoon approached, but when I arrived at 9:30 I was nearly the only person around. Enjoyed the halfway point before heading back toward the trailhead: the Knob overlook of Milford.

We took our 4 kids (ages 11 to 17) and we all loved it. Raymondskill fall is beautiful, just a short walk down and short climb up if you park in the lot. Hacker's fall is a fairly easy hike just across the road and up. Hacker's falls are definitely worth seeing. Saw lots of wildlife too.

We hiked this loop with 11 year olds, young adults, and 50+ year old adults, and all were able to complete the simple loop. We saw the falls, which were gorgeous, and the river at the bottom of the mountain. There was a pretty steep decline to get to the river however, but if you take it slow, most can make it down and up again. Our original intention was to hike the Cliff Trail, but we were confused about where we were and how to read the map from where we were. In the end, we were not disappointed, we just ended up doing something different than we had planned.

A beautiful fall and a nice hike to the creek. I only gave it 3 stars because the trails are not marked so uncertain which trail to follow to make the 2.9 mile loop. Parking lots are very small and you may not find a parking space. The trails are lined with gravel and certain spots are slippery.

Awesome views! Pretty easy trail other than the initial climb.

Beautiful hike along the cliffs. There are several areas where you can go off the main trail a bit to the edge of the cliff and relax.

Great hike, very scenic.

Relatively easy hike, did Cliff trail as well. The view was great, and the falls were also wonderful. Definitely a hike I would do again.
