Awesome trail! Would plan to be here about 2-3 hours. The hike to the falls is challenging, uphill the whole way and very Rocky. Would recommend some shoes with grip or hiking boots. Way back is all downhill, very quick. The falls are stunning, a must see!

Consistent, gradual incline on the way to the peak. It is worth it for the view though.

loved this trail for its steady, yet invigorating incline up to the falls and it’s easy, needle-padded descent back to parking lot. my 12 yr old son and i loved it. it was hardly busy on a summer tuesday around 11a.

Very well groomed and well marked trail. Rocky at points and not too steep. Waterfall at the end is worth the hike. Make sure to go early to avoid the crowds.

Hiking

The walk up is not fun due to the trail being a road with a lot of rocks and continues up in a gradual incline. That being said, once you get to an area in which there are bigger rocks on your right, a trail entrance to the long trail, and a choice to continue going up the road; look to your right. There is a path through the rocks to prospect rock and the view is beautiful. You can see Manchester and the mountains that serve as a back drop. There are great places to sit and enjoy the view. Just a note the app will continually say you are off route but if you are on the road you are going in the right direction. Parking is limited and you cannot park at the entrance of the trailhead. Instead park by the water tower just before. There are about three spots. Wear bug spray and watch for poison ivy

Nice wide trail but still tough to social distance, large group of two or three families together spread out, and some people just won’t move over when passing to maintain distance. Nice overlook at prospect rock, going back down was tough with rocks and we were glad we had bug spray.

crowded but enjoyable hike. there were lots of off leash dogs which was good for us, since I am a dog lover and was able to let my dog off leash since all other dogs were also off leash. I generally prefer loops to out and back, but this was a nice hike. super easy.

Great hike! Pretty steep and very rocky for the first couple miles, be ready for a workout! Last 3/4 mile is downhill to waterfall. Very picturesque and good place to cool down in summer months. Began hike around 9:30-10. Relatively few people on the way in, but got busier as the day went on. People climbing all around the falls, hoping as quarantine life dissipates traffic will slow down and lessen the human erosion around the falls.

Follow the blue always! Waterfall ending is as pictured. Solid 3 hour burner. Not good at all for small kiddos.

Fabulous view but room for only a few people to social distance on the rock. Trail is wide, not particularly exciting but has a small waterfall near the beginning, very rocky and steadily uphill for 1.1 miles. It’s not difficult if you take it slow. Prospect Rock is opposite a trail on the left which is clearly marked. Despite the negatives, I enjoy this hike for the uphill workout & beautiful payoff at the top.

Very rocky in some places...spent a lot of time looking down to make sure I had good footing. Muddy up toward the top of the trail but nothing too bad. The view of the falls is stunning. Small area so if you have a group...you’ll have to take turns.

Great trail. My dog loved every second of it. It was enough uphill to break a sweat and the waterfall at the end is great motivation to complete the trail. I saw people of all ages on the trail. Very rocky so you will spend a lot of time looking down.

Easy hike through mixed hardwood and then some older stands of hemlock. The trail is well marked with blue blazes and wide enough to pass people easily. Rocks in the trail mean that you do have to spend a lot of time looking down. Steady, but easy uphill to a fork at around 1.8 miles in, then a more narrow and level trail that was muddy in places down to the falls. The falls were quite full for June. Not a lot of spots for hanging out at the falls, and definitely no place to swim or get wet. I hiked this trail on a Thursday morning starting at 8:30 am. I passed 7 groups of hikers the whole time but had lots of stretches where I didn't see anyone. All-in-all a nice hike for summer - shady the whole time.

Enjoyable trail that is a decent challenge and fairly quick. It took us 55 mins up and 42 minutes down. Trail is on a two track road (if your feeling lazy and have a off-road vehicle/Jeep you can just drive it). Beautiful cascading waterfall very early on that is definitely worth the quick stroll off the path to get closer. There are a few off shoots of other trails but just stay on the one that looks most vehicle friendly (or the widest). Fairly steep but not too bad most the way and flattens out a bit before you reach the top. Footing a bit unforgiving as it isn’t a true hiking trail but manageable. The sign is easy to miss as others mentioned but one way to help is there is a trail that shoots off dead left with a sign after the trail levels out a bit. Just past the sign on your right you will see the red sign on a tree that reads “look up” and further up the same tree another sign reads “Prospect Rock” and points right of the trail. Then you just walk down a little path thru some trees and you can see the opening and “Prospect Rock” as well. The views of Manchester, Mt. Equinox, Dorset Peak and the Northshire valley in general are magnificent!
