This is a very nice and suuuper lightly trafficked trail (for reference, I went on Labor Day and didn't see a single soul). Decent descent at the beginning, which makes the hike back a good bit tougher than the way out. The trail is maintained very well for the first mile or so, then tapers off to almost grown over towards the end -- only about a foot wide in some sections with a few fallen trees etc. Aside from the maintenance issues, though, I'd give it 5 stars. Nice trail if you want to get out there alone and the large rocks along the creek make for a nice spot to lounge around and read a book or have lunch.
Side note: The flies were VERY bad when I was there. Come prepared with bug spray if you're hiking during any of the hatches.
Easy to moderate hike. I went in Mid-May after a bit of rain. You have to cross the creek quite a few times and some of the crossings were mid-calf deep. There were quite a few fallen trees to climb over as well. But overall, an enjoyable hike.
A nice trail, moderately maintained. A nice outting to spend the afternoon away from it all. The trail is closed to all but foot traffic, and not very populated at all. I happened across a few fishermen on my outting, but spent most of the day alone with the dog.
The trail crosses the Roarin Run creek several times, none of which are bridged. The rocky bed makes crossing easy, and provides a nice chance to stop and cool off with a few shallow pools that pets are sure to enjoy. My dog had to stop and strech out in every crossing.
The only downside is that some of the trail was not marked well, though the ground was worn enough to find one's way. I believe they are remarking it, though, as I saw signs of fresh paint at the time.
A great little get away, and one to find some peace and solitude back in nature.
