Only got one mile in (the person I went with couldn't handle it!). Will be going back, I want to make it to Eagle's rock.
Very rocky trail & lot's of bugs(as to be expected).
I followed the yellow trail.
TIP: Wear hiking shoes.

It was OK. Really nothing more than moderate. The only challenge was the constant uphill from the beginning of the yellow trail. Terrain on the yellow is mediocre at best. When I neared the top I jumped over to the blue trail. Terrain was a bit better, but nothing extraordinary. As you near the end of the blue trails southward direction from the top there is a lock box on your left with notebooks and pens. People leaving messages and tips for the next to come across it. That was pretty interesting. All in all, it's like a regular walk in the woods

Parked at 322 and hiked about 2.4 miles to 501. Incentive at the end... Ice cream at the Pretzel Hut. A nice walk, about an hour or so with a little lookout about half way (at the top of the mountain is a little rock cluster called Eagle Rock).

Not well marked. We took a small trail off the main one. It crosses some pretty streams and we were well into a quite forest. Came to a T in the trail with no blaze. Went left and found our way out!

We didn't go very far just about 1.75 miles in and then turned around. It was a nice afternoon hike and there was one nice small lookout near Eagle Rock.

I am not sure what 7.6 mile loop this is talking about. The Horseshoe Trail is a 140-mile trail that runs from Valley Forge National Historical Park toward Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It ends about 15 miles northeast of Harrisburg at the Appalachian Trail. It does run along the Lancaster-Lebanon county line north of Lititz, but it is not a loop trail.
