Really nice easy trail that gives beautiful views of the Cranberry Botanical Area. I took my parents and boyfriend on the trail, they don't hike often, and they loved it! Its well marked, the only thing to be aware of is it is boggy in several areas. Would highly recommend to both avid hikers and new comers. Would be a great trail for kids.
A good trail if you have small children or elderly with you. More of a sight seeing destination. Bring shoes you don't mind getting wet. We went the day after a rain storm and the boardwalk covered ankle deep with water. Would be a good place to run laps if not crowded and it had not recently rained.
Walked the trail at a somewhat leisurely pace, saw several deer. Started at the Upper gate parking lot. Walked down the Cranberry River Road to the beginning of the Cow Pasture Trail. Toward the end before reaching the forest service road the trail was very wet. Something to keep in mind-waterproof footwear. A Nice hike but would have been nice to have been able to follow a trail instead of the road back to the car.
