Enjoy a 30 minutes hike through the woods and soon you will reach this picturesque waterfall. This beautiful place is perfect to click some pictures. The cascading waterfall, the serene atmosphere, and the lush greenery of the place enchants you and you will not want to go back. The park where this waterfall is situated has an abundance of wild flora. This includes the Chestnut Oak, Red Oak, White Oak, Maple, Hemlock, Dogwood, Wild Rose, and Sumac. As the trail is small, you can also bring your kids here.

Buttermilk Falls County Park Reviews & Ratings
We couldn't find the water falls. They didn't have enough signs on the trails. Other than that, the forest is clean and well kept. We saw a tortoise... We had a good time too.
Nice small County Park with easy to moderate trails. Waterfall that's running well in the spring or when there's enough rainfall. Good views at the top. Parking lot isn't big, so come early on the weekends.
Nice local park with a short hiking trail (it's a little over one mile long). There's a waterfall at the northern most point on the trail, and some decent views looking southwest and west from several locations. The trail can be muddy in some places and you'll need to watch your footing in the areas with loose rocks. Dogs are allowed and there's plenty of parking in the lot on South Greenbush Road. Enjoy!
Great hiking trail, medium difficulty. Took about 35 minutes to reach the peak with a very curious dog by my side... meaning, you can probably reach the peak sooner if your partner is not sniffing all the rocks on the way up. The hiking trail has a lot of roots running through it, so be careful. Also, the trail can get muddy. Overall, a good hike, but not perfect.
Quick easy hike. It's about a mile total. goes up the hill then back down. Great after a rain storm so that you can see the falls going.
