From the northern end of the parking area, head into the woods on a blue-blazed trail, which climbs gradually to the right of a ravine. Pay careful attention to the blazes, as there are a number of side trails in this area. After turning sharply and ascending on a switchback, you’ll reach the remnants of two stone pillars to the left of the trail, with scenic Buttermilk Falls cascading down...

Did this hike today. Seems
Did this hike today. Seems like the blue trail was all over. We ended up getting a bit lost which was our obvious mistake but we always have google maps and a compas and found our way.  It was an enjoyable hike, Not what I would call easy but it was a nice day.

Easy Hike if Local
If you are in the area and need a quick hike, this is it. There's not anything special here. Very close to the road. Heard sounds practically the whole time. Waterfall was a mere trickle.  Definitely should not be in the top waterfall area. We started at the one side, went to the other and back in only 1.5 hour. Anyone could do it in 45 minutes, easily.

A pleasant surprise
Did this hike yesterday. Although I was a little disappointed that there was minimal water flowing down the falls considering it rained much of the prior night, this was still a good hike. The first two viewpoints were hard to view through the trees, but the third one made the hike worth it. It was a relatively clear day and Newark was visible as well as the Ramapo Mountains. Someone left a chair up there in the perfect place to watch a Sunset! This is a hike that would be good for just about anyone in decent physical condition. Description was accurate and the blazes are highly visible.
