Little flat trail is neither little nor flat. It's a pretty brutal trek to the top, but totally worth it for the views. I ran into a rattlesnake, so keep your eyes open.

I would call this moderate to difficult!!! But I appreciated the challenge and stream and flowers to be seen. You can avoid the roads by taking lesser marked / upkept small trails and still do the loop.

Fun trail, difficult descent, not very populated, also a very difficult climb up. However walking on the roads at the top is very pleasant

I would not call this an easy trail for beginners, it has a little more than 1000 Ft elevation and slippery area which would be safer with hiking shoes on.

The initial hill climb was a little brutal but the views were more than worth it. We went in late February.

Well maintained trail. It is a cardio challenge going up. About 1,100 ft elevation gain from the trailhead to the tower. I would come the same way I came up next time, as the trail on Spruce Gap Trail is washed out and rather tricky with those smaller rocks.

This was a pretty easy trail and not as demanding as some of the others around Rothrocks. Good for dogs and children

The Keystone Trails Association has finally completed brush cutting and applying fresh blazes on the entire trail during the weekend of October 19 through the 21st.

This trail is in better shape now. several miles have been brush cut and blazes refreshed at the Reeds Gap state park end this October 2011. blowdowns from Reeds Gap to the picnic area along Bear Run trail have been cleaned up. The rest of the trail to Poe Patty should be done next October 2012.
