Proper foot wear and a little athleticism are a must on this trail. There are a few steep inclines where you need to use rocks and roots to climb up. The loop takes about 2 hours. The views along the way are truly beautiful. This hike is well worth it and makes for a perfect day hike! Can't wait to do it again.
Took around an1.5 hours. Hard to tell the trail but this app help with that. Recommend that you take snacks and GOOD HIKING SHOES!!
Beautiful place ! Have been here many times and it never gets old. It has a dangerous reputation, but as long as you are smart, stay on the trail and don't try to do anything dangerous you will have a safe trip(: Highly recommend checking it out if your from the Lehigh valley and have not been here yet!
This trail has a pretty bad reputation, so I was hesitant to explore it. I'm so glad I did! It's my new favorite. Absolutely beautiful scenery. The waterfalls are stunning and even in the middle of summer in a drought they were running full. You do end up grabbing on to roots, rocks, etc to help get yourself up in a few areas. Hiking boots are a must and I would suggest a hiking stick too. The trail can be confusing if you don't do research first. When you approach the trail sign welcoming you and giving the rules (not the one immediately off the stairs) you want to follow the trail to the left of the sign. This takes you UP the falls, which is easier than trying to go down that way. If you go right it's all switch backs and sort of boring and you'll be exhausted by the time you get to the top of the falls. Also watch for rattlesnakes... one scared the bejesus out of me. Be smart - don't get close to edges, pay attention to your footing, and wear proper hiking boots and you'll be fine. I would consider it a moderate trail.
Beautiful and refreshing. Take it to the top and you get a decent view of the Lehigh Valley
excellent trails with beautiful waterfalls. my dog loved it :)
very beautiful! enjoyed every moment of it, although I did see a guy getting carried out in a stretcher. A little difficult if you're new to hiking but, if you go slowly there's nothing to worry about. If you go all the way up, you get a chance to see a view that's to die for.
SO much my favorite hike to date and did almost weekly when i lived there for 2 yrs... Took my 12,11,9 & 3yr olds and they love looking for crystals on our outing... Recommend experience and SAFETY which is OUR PERSONAL responsibility and so enjoyable and beautiful... The energy is AMAZING
is there not way to edit? another 2 hours if you make a right after climbing the falls.
this is not the actual falls trail. this loops is around the gamelands. to get to the falls go counter clockwise and take the right about an hour in. enjoy the view for a moment then follow the new trail back along the ridge. if the path starts going straight down the side of the hill you are off the main trail. follow the orange blazes down the switchbacks until you reach the bottoma at the sign for the falls. from there you can actually climb the falls all the way back to the gamelands trail. keep following the water up and you will pick up the trail. though this requires going into the restricted area. enter at own risk. this loop took 3 hours. if you want to log miles it's another 2 to finish the counter clockwise loop. not missing much but forests and a few meadows. otherwise hang a left and its about 30 minutes to the lot. forgot to turn on the gps to show tracker.
