Very easy and fun trail. Took my 2 & 1/2 year old and her 4 year old cousin with me. Went at the end of December, so we didn't see any animals but plenty of people and dogs walking the trail. The girls were really good and walked the entire time with some falls but they are very tough. Only walked half way to the water fall but that was a perfect time to go back before the girls got to cold. Very cool areas with tall trees and Spots by the water to take nice pictures. I recommend it if you are looking for something easy and fun. Very beautiful and I will be going again when it gets warmer and the plants start to grow.
Thirty dollars to download a map? Won't be coming back to this website.
great Trail, very scenic, recommended
Went with 5 year old and 6 year old ... Perfect length and not too many obstacles for the kids.
Great easy trail.
Was a very nice hike
Took my year old in a carrier. Nice little family outing
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.
Nice place. Will be back at spring time
Easy and nice enough
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.
Great for family with younger kids! Hike to the waterfall
Great experience !
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.
