Great, easy loop! Plenty of options to make the trip shorter or longer as you choose.

Nice hike in the winter. A bit of scrambling to get up to the falls. After you pass the falls it's really just a flat forest road. In the winter seems like a snowmobile trail as well.

Nice winter hike. Snowshoes are probably recommended.

Short trail, little squishy in some areas but boards laid down on the trail helps. Have to climb at the end of the trail to get the best view of the falls.

Great place to swim!

Very windy at the top with little to no visual when we went, but still a great hike. Definitely bring yourself lots of water! Due to the traffic coming up (as we were trying to go down) and grounds being wet, took profanity back down to attempt and bypass some people and to be more covered from the winds.

A more challenging, moderate hike. The first portion is very steep, then it escalates into more technical footing, rock walking, and stream crossing. An interesting and beautiful hike. Give yourself a little more time to complete this than you may have thought for 2.8 miles.

Awesome waterfall with a lot of places for climbing and lounging in the river. View from the bottom of the falls is well worth the walk down. Of note, the steps down to the bottom are steep and can be slippery when wet and covered in leaves.

perfectly nice and easy hike. falls are lovely but not most impressive in the area. make sure you go to the bottom of the falls too. There is longer hike you can do from the falls

short walk to falls. limited view from the top and so worth the equally short walk to the bottom to get a better view

Short hike to see beautiful falls.

Love this hike. Have done it twice. Bring lots of water. First time I did it with my husband and we went at a pretty good clip. Felt very accomplished when done and views are outstanding. Coming back was harder than going up as our knees were grumbling we are both over 50).

Second time did it with a bunch of girlfriends and it was wet and super foggy. Two girls turned around early on. The rest of us turned around probably less than halfway in. Must have good hiking shoes. Ideally you want boots as your ankles will be screaming at you on the way back.

Go but be prepared. You want hiking boots, water, something warm for up top plus a snack.

Definitely worth it. After climbing and appreciating the waterfall from above, you must go down, surrounding the river, and see it from below. A short hike for all the family.

Short, surprising treat at the top. Worth the stop!

Good for me and my 12 year old daughter, even in a bit of rain. Didn’t see any wildlife.

Beautiful hike with stairs cut into the steeper areas. The kids enjoyed walking in the water and climbing the rocks for a good hour after we got to the bottom. So did I.

Wonderful trail from base of Stowe to upper ski runs. Would rate it more challenging than moderate. Narrow trail through the woods and crossing water several times on the way up - much nicer than climbing a ski slope. Continuing up the ski trails and connect to the Long Trail. Beautiful views along the ridge in both directions. Great hike.

We hiked this trail to the top and back, it was not 6.4 miles but a little over 8 miles. There was not a clear spot to turn around as the Catamount XC trail goes on for many miles, so we stopped at approximately the top, and we got a little view, but not very much.

It was an enjoyable trail to hike, with beautiful scenery, but does not see much traffic in summer, some areas were not very well marked and 2 different people missed a turn and got lost on the way down. It was wet in places and the footing could be slippery. I would not classify this as a great trail for beginners.

At the top there was a lot of signs of moose activity.

(FYI The reviewer Jesepe A is obviously commenting on a different trail that starts nearby goes up to the Long Trail and back, https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/vermont/nebraska-notch-lake-mansfield-trail, that is not this trail)

Perfect hike! Meandering trail. Lots of ponds, rivers, flowers, moss, trees. I was smiling the whole time. First 1/4 really easy trek, next 1/2 somewhat challenging uphill with rocks, then last 1/4 easy again. No real 'peak' with a view, but still an amazing hike. Would do again.
