We enjoyed our first day of hiking in Manchester at Lye Brook. It was 5 miles and we hiked for 5 hours. While I would call it easy, it was the easiest we hiked all week. We are avid hikers, hiking at least 6 miles at least 1 day per week, year-round.

Very pretty hike. Trails were maintained and were well marked. Popular spot so if you want some time alone sitting at the falls, might want to go early

This hike is not as difficult as many claim; I would rate it as moderate. There are rocky sections and a portion has a persistent, gradual uphill climb but much of it is fairly level. The payoff is lovely; I thought getting to the viewpoints was the most challenging part of the hike.
As others have said, it is quite popular especially on weekends so go early for more solitude.

The hike is difficult. You need at least three hours to get there and back. There was very little water.

Well worth the hike. The trail is somewhat challenging. Make sure you wear the proper footgear. Trail is also dog friendly too:

We had Saturday morning open, and we decided to hike to Lyle Brook Falls. After driving down the Forest Service access road, we were able to easily spot around 10 AM. The trail reasonably well-maintained, although there were some instance that we had to hike through some soggy mud, as well as also negotiate some small streams, so be sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes. It took about 1 hr, 15 minutes each way, at a moderate pace. When you get to the falls themselves, you may want to consider taking a very short side path up a hill to get a much more expansive view of the falls, from a higher perch.

This hike was a highlight of our trip to the Manchester/Arlington area. It's a little challenging at times for an old guy like me but, overall, just fantastic views, beautiful colors, not overly crowded...and the falls at the end are spectacular!

This hike took a while longer than expected, 2 hours to the falls and an hour back. The falls at the end are nice. Not sure if there had been a recent rain or if there are persistent mudholes but I would wear some waterproof boots next time.

The hike to the falls is through lovely forested area. In our opinion it is neither moderate or easy. The terrain is varied, with many rocks of all sizes in the path. At times it is wet and slippery. There are inclines and declines over this terrain. Bottom line is it was much more than we expected. We spent over 4 hours traversing.

Always a favorite hiking trail. Have taken our Scout Troop up over the years. Nice for most all levels though some more difficult spots. All in all a great trail, great views and beautiful falls at the end
