  • My daughter and I love taking the short hike in to the falls. We usually park at the lower parking area, the trail from there to the falls is longer, but the climb is less drastic than from the upper ...  read more »
  • Nice hike. Not too hard to get there. Waterfalls are picturesque. Lots of falling water. Did I mention scenic and chill? 
  • You can just come for the beautiful waterfalls or combine it with a great hike. Come with your friends, family, or come by yourself. You can't do wrong in this gorgeous spot! 
  • Nice hike! Two trail options available at different difficulty levels. The Mass. side of the park offers a slightly shorter, but steeper hike down to the waterfall while the NY side offers a flatter, wider but longer walk to the falls.
  • A beautiful place to visit and hike. The Falls are wonderful and well worth the short hike to get there. The entire area is worth spending time in and investigating.
  • We hiked to the falls from the camping ground. It was 1.5 miles there but the hike wasn't tiring and you will get to cross the NY-MA state line along the way. It's a very pleasant place. There were quite a few who chose to swim despite the no swimming sign.
  • Took a hike in September and ended up at the falls where we set up for a little picnic on some of the many flat rocks, and did some swimming. Great hike (always cool when you get to hike across state lines). Of course being a mountain stream the water is chilly but well worth it to take a dip. You can even swim over directly underneath the waterfall and take one a very high pressure shower.
  • Beautiful views and a lot of really great nooks to spend an afternoon outside. Pro tip: check out the "scenic route" for a more challenging hike along a fence that doubles a handrail. It's all the way on the left side of the parking lot.
