A relatively easy trail that loops above Brandywine Falls, but mostly travels around the picturesque gorge below. The waterfall is beautiful and one of the signature spots in the park, with a boardwalk to several nice vantage points. If you want to extend the hike, you can take the Bike & Hike Trail or the Stanford Trail to the Towpath Trail.
fun great falls. good place to hike for beginners and moderates.
What a beautiful hike this is! The falls were beautiful and the observation decks were a wonderful break from our hike. We really enjoyed the gravel trails, but there's a lot of loose slate and stone and it could pose a slipping risk for kids and even some adults. A lot of tree roots going over the trail and some larger rocks too. I will add this to one of my regular hikes just because it was awesome to be out in the woods right by the river enjoying a beautiful Ohio day.
Fun trail to do with friends!
