Beautiful trail. Don't forget your camera! Lots of great photo ops. This trail has something for everyone. Loved how natural the trail was. Climbing the rock formations gave a bit of challenge and excitement to the day! Side trails are great. Even our dog enjoyed the trail. We would highly recommend exploring The Ledges as well as the loop trail. Two thumbs up

Less hikers than other parts of the CVNP. But you're not alone. The first mile, clockwise, is noteworthy, but after that it's mostly quiet unremarkable forest... which is a good thing;)

Plan to go back and do the entire trail. Really liked it a lot.

Excellent and fun for the younsters.

Excellent trail. Can make what you want of it by taking some of the side trails. Take a camera....numerous photo ops.

Like many others, I had only been to the first fall since the silly sign said "Trail Ends Here". I decided to go past the sign this time and it was great! I went around 9:30 on a Saturday morning in early October and there weren't a whole lot of people hiking the trail (the Buckeyes were playing later that day, maybe that was part of it...) The hike along the creek is a lot of fun! When you get to the second fall it's very peaceful and relaxing. It's just under a 2 mile hike total. I recommend this trail. And go past that silly sign! :)

Beautiful wooded trail that opens up to a pond around halfway through. The trail is well-marked; Plateau Trail intersects Oak Hill Trail several times. Great trail for looking at the autumn leaves.

We headed from the Ledges parking lot to Look Out from there we took Pine GroveTrail, which has a conectecting trail to the Lake Loop then did the Salt Run Trail back over to finish the Pine Grove trail ending at Ledges pavilion.
With all the conectecting trails this made for a great long challenging hike.

Beautiful hike! Trails were well marked. We met lots of friendly hikers. Trail very pet friendly. Falls were beautiful with a great viewing deck. We would highly recommend exploring these trails.

Decent hike. Nice overlook for fall colors when they finally turn.

what an amazing trail that was and I saw an owl

Great trail with nice scenic views. Cool rock formations and cliffs.

Beautiful hike. Falls were bigger than I had imagined. Well worth hiking. When I got to the loop, I went in a clockwise direction

Great trail, but I ran as the sun went down. Even with the flashlight it was rather treacherous. Also, adding the trail past the shelter down the middle and back next adds an extra mile to the trail.

I agree with Mairah that the traffic noise takes away from the experience. Other than the traffic noise it was a beautiful ride.

It was a nice bike ride. I only gave it a 3 because of the traffic nearby.
