Distance: 2.2 miles. Elevation gain: 50ft. On a clear day you can see NYCSome rock scrambling. Trailhead coordinates: 41.045837,-74.350383.

This is a fairly easy hike that is great for the whole family to see the fall foliage and experience a great waterfall. It is a short hike through the woods to get to the falls with other loops available for those that want to hike more.

Love!

This was a great hike! Was pretty long and strenuous at points but on a clear day you can see the NYC skyline. If you want to see the falls follow the map and it is worth the extra three ish miles.

Go North, Not South

I intended to do this hike yesterday and ended up doing a much different hike. It was still lovely but no waterfalls. Here's the key. At the trailhead you can go either north or south on the trail. Go north for the waterfall.

Very Calm

Really nice trail. Nothing crazy. Followed the blue markers with my dog though I do think if the water was higher he might have some trouble jumping the rocks at the start.
