Awesome trail! Just challenging enough with great scenes. The hike was all along the falls. The hardest part for us was finding the switchback trail to take on the way down. Once we got to the top of the falls we really weren't sure which way to go, so we just went up! We climbed a boulder filled hill for about 10 minutes until we found more orange blazes and the trail.

We also were undecided as to whether or not to bring our dog. He's medium sized and can pull, so we were very glad we didn't not bring him!

Beautiful place. Going past the falls and exploring the trail on top provided some amazing views of the town.

Falls are beautiful. The trail was very busy even on a weekday. We spent some time waiting for people struggling to come down the falls trail. Suggest going all the way to the top, stay to the right and follow the switch back down to the parking lot.

Love this hike! I'm 43 years old and have been hitting these trails since I was in high school. You can mountain bike, hike to the top waterfall (very scenic), or just hang out on the banks of the Lehigh river. We use to jump off the bridge into the river, although they have stopped that, if you're feeling rebellious, go for it!

It was great. Definitely take the falls trail up. You're climbing alongside the falls the majority of the ascent. The rocks are wet and loose which is fine on the way up but less fun going down. I highly recommend taking the white blazes/ switchback down.
Also following the directions from the app brings you to someone's backyard so here are the coordinates for the parking lot 40°53'00.8"N 75°45'37.5"W

Nice short hike with beautiful waterfalls the whole way up. It's a popular spot, so you'll definitely see other people around. It wouldn't necessarily be a very difficult trail, but the wet rocks make it dangerous, so just be careful. I read about a longer trail (5-6 mi.) that would also bring you back to the parking lot, but the directions were a little unclear & I didn't have time to try out each path at the top of the falls. If anyone's familiar with a longer trail I'd love to do that instead of just the 2 mile loop!
