nice relaxing trail. lots of benches along the way to stop and soak in the moment. red trail follows along water while the others take you more through the woods.

First visit.Great easy hike with kids (and dog). I can't wait to visit again in summer. Kids liked jumping from rock to rock by the stream.

Did some hiking here after a few days of rain... As long as you don't mind getting muddy you should be good to go. Also pay attention I'm pretty sure there are 2 red trails... An older one and a newer one... The older one has lots of tall grass and isn't very well kept... Tall grass=snakes.... I didn't see any but was waiting for it. I did some off trail too just a little bit to make things exciting. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here however it was closer than hawk mountain so I'll take it. Not bad, but after being spooled by Glen onoko and Ricketts Glen and the DE water gap I guess my standards have changed.

Good for a quick walk with the dogs (first section of trail to the creek's little waterfall/rapids area).

Easy and well marked trails. Newer benches and picnic tables are a plus. Creek trail is scenic.

Brought my 11 yr old and 5 yr old boys here. It was fantastic. Easy enough to hike with small children, fantastic scenery, you can get right close to the water and there are so many photo opportunities. The first trail kind of stems off into others....I'd suggest sticking to following the water if you have children as the other trails do tend to be a little higher. AWESOME HIKING EXPERIENCE. The kids cant wait to go back!

I did some hiking there this weekend with the family and friends. Wear good hiking shoes. Very slippery rocks. It was a beautiful sight.
