  • Nice spot for a quick walk. Great for dog walking. The waterfalls are not huge but very nice none the less. There a nicely made benches along the way for a rest or to just take in the scenery. Please clean up after your four legged companions.
  • Beautiful nature preserve and very easy walk. The views by the river are great and the trails are easily marked.
  • We stopped by on our way out of the Catskills and it was a perfect place to stroll and have a picnic with a bunch of kids. We appreciated the benches along the way! Be aware that the easiest trail does not loop (yet) although it may appear that it does from the map.
  • My very favorite because its quiet and great views
  • This is a very dog-friendly hike. There's a small pebble beach where your pup can swim. Just make sure to bring poop bags. You have to carry out all of your trash.
