Very nice hike. It's a little steep getting down below the falls, not hard for adults, but for younger children it may be a little difficult. Both the orange and red trails have a pleasant grade. Adding to the natural beauty of the hike is the leaves are in moderate color change now. The hike was definitely worth the 100 mile drive. One thing to note is that the red trail has a few left or right turns, so it is a good idea to memorize which way you want to go for the turns in advance. There are at least 2 maps posted on the trails (one on the orange, one on the red), so if you are not sure you have made the correct turns on the red trail you can get straightened out when you come upon the map.

Very kid friendly trail. Easy and fun walk in the woods. I was surprise at how well maintained the trail was. Gravel was put down in spots where it normally would be wet. Because of the mention over growth in the loop aspect of the trail we did not loop. On the way back we saw a black bear!!! You don't get a chance to hike with that type of wildlife everyday.

the first half of this trail is very enjoyable, and you are rewarded at the halfway point with a beautiful waterfall!! the rest of the trail, however, left a bad taste in my mouth because it was an (unmarked) ATV trail and was not cleared. we lost our way a couple of times and had to trudge through very tall grass and foliage, which are havens for snakes. I would recommend this trail highly to everyone, but would not suggest taking the loop whatsoever.

Went here today and hiked the red trail with my GF and dog. We hiked the red trail and it was really nice, portions of the trail are a bit overgrown it all in all it was a very nice leisure hike.

We really enjoyed this trail. We took the orange marked mid state trail down the falls and the red marked sand run trail back. The mid state trail was definitely a more enjoyable hike with conifers lining the trail for most of the hike while the sand run trail on the way back did not have much scenery and ran along a fence for a little while. Next time we'll probably do the mid state trail in an out and back. The falls are an amazing pay off for this trail and are incredibly beautiful. We would recommend this trail just to see them!

Nice trail. The mid-state section seems much prettier than the Sand Run section. The falls at the end were awesome since it has been such a wet June. It was somewhat difficult to find the trail near the falls.

Have done this trail several times; once in mid-winter at 10 below zero. The north side of the loop is now part of the Mid State Trail. Sand Run Trail is an easy, relatively flat trail leading to a 30 ft waterfall. Be careful in crossing the creek. This is a wet crossing and should be done by following the Mid State Trail's orange blazes. Do not be tempted to cross just above the falls. One slip could mean disaster. Will be doing the trail again in Oct., 2012, leading our church youth group.
