Diamond Notch Trail (Blue) Professional Reviews and Guides

"A waterfall is always a favorite destination for hikers, and one that is scaled down to kid-size is more appealing to families than a formidable one with limited access and dangerous drop-offs. An easy 1-mile walk along the entertaining West Kill (Brook) leads to Diamond Notch Falls, where kids can wade, splash, or just sit (do kids ever do that?) on the moss-covered slopes. If you’ve been contemplating a family camp-out, consider hiking another 0.5 mile to the spacious Diamond Notch Lean-to. (An added bonus if you spend the night: you can visit the falls again in the morning!)"

"This classic mountain notch leads to a secluded waterfall."

I hiked this with my wife and my 1 year old daughter at the time. We actually went past the falls and went up to the Lean-To. Wasn't strenuous at all.
