Moderate trail but very picturesque. The pool on the bottom was great. The kids can safely wade and the water is clear and beautiful.

You'll definitely get your exercise getting to the falls but its well worth the hike. Make sure you have appropriate sneakers or hiking boots to make the trek up or down the trails to get to the falls. Beautiful Falls

If you want a relaxing day of hiking and waterfall, this is not the place. Tourists from all over are crowded on every rock here. Although it is cool to see, I wouldn't plan my day around it.

We parked in the NY parking lot since I was not in the mood for a strenuous hike. The waterfall is absolutely worth the 20 minute leisurely walk along the brook. If you have a free few hours, make the trip. It's great for pups,...More

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.
