Definitely a place to go. Loads of people with children and dogs. We parked in the NY parking lot, which we read was less steep than the MA parking lot. Plan for about a 3/4 mile walk up to the falls. On the day we...More

The waterfalls are very nice, the trail to them from the parking lot is not long (15 mins), but can be demanding for older folks

This was a beautiful stop on a recent ride with my local Harley Owners Group (HOG). I will revisit again during warmer weather.

Easy short hike to the falls. Slightly elevated from the spot we parked but there was a closer lot. We liked the walk because it was by the stream. It was really a nice place to sit back and relax. Highly rec a visit!

From the shorter side no, but from the other side it depends. We were able 2 push a stroller down the trail all the way 2 the falls, but it is tricky in some spots.
