Moderate trail when not overlapping other trails. Be prepared for some drops in elevation, especially near places where trail is not marked very well.

Great trail, with plenty of canopy coverage. It's hard to believe you're just 15 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. I took the green trail with a few little detours that added up to 2.9mi. The waterfall is small, but a nice place to cool off.

There are some places where the blazes are confusing, but the journey is fun.

Fun hike. Easy for the kids. Path was not very clearly marked at points but we made it and had fun!

The trails were moderately difficult and it's so worth it to see the waterfall but it is so poorly labeled for directions it makes it almost not worth it. Don't even bother going to the park office for the map because the map doesn't even have half of the pavilions and trails labeled. Very confusing!

A little confusing but overall it's worth a visit.

Took this trail for the first time with my dog and we both loved it. The waterfall was beautiful and my dog loved the water. We'll be back

Trail was ok. Markings were a little confusing but still were able to find our way without too much trouble. We went after it was dry for several days and there were still muddy areas but very passable. I could see after a rain it could be very muddy.

We got very lost. The trail was poorly marked in places and is not well maintained. Next time I would try the blue trail longer but better for walking

Nice trail, easy to moderate. Overlaps with 2 other trails (blue and purple). Green is the most scenic but also has the most drops and rises in elevation. If you decide to take this loop in the spring prepare your feet for mud and water.
