Great views of the falls. Lots of people and trails! Excellent place to see any time of year and is wheel chair/stroller accessible. Trails are all flat and gravel. You cannot swim here though. Lots of signs to read about the natural history of the area.

Short, gentle walking path, navigable by wheelchair. Several scenic overlook areas for ideal viewing and photo ops. Tree covered path, so even on the hottest day (when we went it was 92 degrees out), you stay cool and comfortable. Several paths down to the riverbed for more experienced hikers.

Beautiful scenery/the walking trails to view the falls was easy to walk on. Viewing spots were great for getting pictures of the falls. Other walking trails/to the gorge was a little more rugged to maneuver. Great place to get exercise and enjoy nature. Would definitely go back. Gail H

Reminds me of a place I use to go with my soul mate/husband of 26 yrs. What a beautiful place. It's a must see. You can spend 20 minutes or 2 hrs. You can observe the falls from a manicured path or try your luck at a rocky path down into the gorge. Kids will love it!! Either way it's... More

The falls trail was easy to navigate and view the falls. However, a full view of the falls is partially obscured by trees this time of year. You can also walk to the area above the falls and see the view at the top. To get a better view, we tried to climb down the gorge trail which was very... More

Beautiful waterfall located in Orwell New York. The hike to and from the falls is short and flat. The location is a little hard to find however it's worth the adventure. We tried to hike some of the other trails located at the park however it ended up being too muddy. Some of the stones at the falls were engraved... More

I had always heard about the falls but finally made it there. Gorgeous. Well maintained paths, clean and safe. Lots of people enjoying the area and respecting it. Make sure you bring your camera. Lots of beautiful pictures to be taken.

Upstate New York abounds with beautiful waterfalls! On a day venture in Oswego County I explored this beautiful area. The peacefulness and beauty of this area is a true escape from the city. If you love hiking and exploring and experiencing the rushing noise of waterfalls, you will find yourself at home here.
