Create an itinerary including Robert Treman State Park
Robert Treman State Park, a picturesque region of rocky gorges, creeks and waterfalls, boasts high-quality walking trails, camping grounds, a swimming beach and picnic grounds. Hike the gorge trail to see 12 different waterfalls, including the impressive Lucifer Falls. The multitiered falls cascades 35 m (115 ft). Visit the Enfield Falls Mill--which is on the National Register of Historic Places--and Miller's House, a former gristmill that ground buckwheat, wheat and coarser grains. It now serves as a small museum that documents the milling process. Head to the lower falls for the lifeguard-monitored swimming beach. Bring a picnic to enjoy at picnic tables under shady trees.

  • Gorgeous trails, mildly manicured, easy to follow and near more wild trails if desired. Stunning foliage and waterfalls aplenty. Scenic areas easily accessible from each parking lot. I went from the main entrance/lower park onto the rim trail to upper park, which had the most gorgeous view of the tallest waterfall and stone paths near the end; then, back down via the gorge trail, which I think looking at the elevation maps (roughly accurate on the trailside) is the way to go (more up and down going there, then mostly down on the way back). Moderate difficulty hike. One water bottle was enough for me going light on a cool day. Chipmunks, squirrels present. Friday afternoon saw other hikers every 5-10 minutes or so.
  • Amazing park for one whole day. Beautiful trails (we did 3,4 km in one way and back 3,6 km). There where few spots were you can take a break near river. The Lucifer Falls are heartbreaking. In the end of our hiking we were swimming and jumping in clear, fresh and cold water). Here you can find also playground for kids, tabels for picnic, small cabins for staying few days. Highly recommend!!!
