The trails are well marked, with a map of the area and trails at the parking lot (which is small). There are 3 access points and several trails winding through the property. The falls are pretty, but the trail to the falls has been changed...More

We stopped here after kayaking and spent three hours there. Take a picture of the map and park on cataract street. Trails are a little muddy but that's what makes it fun. Enjoy. Hardly any bugs

This is one of the best summertime activities Worcester has to offer. This is a beautiful hike through a lovely little park. The waterfalls are just gorgeous and the walk is breathtaking.

Nothing more than a trickle but we hiked all the way to the top hoping to see some water falling. it was not worth the trip. I guess we need more rain to see the cascading of it.

It's a beautiful waterfall but only after there has been lots of rain, especially when the Spring snow melts. If it hasn't rained you'll probably see nothing but a trickle coming down the cascade. But the cascade is not on Cascade Street (the map is...More
