Family and dog-friendly loop hike mostly along a beautiful stream. Although this is a loop hike, I strongly suggest beginning with the left or lower side of the loop. This will keep the stream on your right side the entire hike. You'll begin by crossing a small stream on a bridge - to the left of the Tucquan Glen sign. It's an easy hike with part of it along an old logging road. Follow the blue blazes. You'll pass the remains of an old homestead. The gorge will narrow as you get closer to the halfway point and you'll have some beautiful waterfalls over huge rocks. At the halfway point you'll reach the railroad tracks. Turn right along the tracks and cross the bridge over Tuquan Creek. After another 100 feet or so the trail will head sharply uphill on the right. The stream will be out of sight for the first third of the return trip but the trail returns to it soon.

Beautiful hike along a stream that leads down to railroad tracks and the Susquehanna. Not to challenging but rocky in places. Not well marked, actually not really marked at all. Just follow the stream and you won't get lost. We parked in a small lot and had walk a little down and across the road to get to the trailhead.

Awesome area with lots of trails perfect for hikers of all levels. Tons of shallow water and creeks, perfect for wading in the summer. Leads down to the Susquehanna River if you follow it down the whole way. More of a leisure hike, it doesn't get very steep or rocky. 10/10 recommend, this place is a verdant paradise in the summer!

Terribly marked trail. Extremely confusing. All markings led straight into prime hunting grounds although signs posted everywhere said no hunting. We saw hunters in trees and got a few shotgun blasts close by even though signs said archery only. Abandoned trailed after about 45 minutes of just trying to get started. Terrible, dangerous hike.

Great hike and beautiful views. Followed the yellow blaze out and the blue blaze back. Note: make sure to start at the small parking area across from the woodworking shop.

This is an all time favorite for me. I'm lucky enough to live close by. A lot of people stop when they hit the waterfalls, hang out for little, then head back. But I like to take the trail the whole way out to the river. No one is ever out there and you get I nice privet beach like area right on the Susquhanna. Pack a bathing suit if it's warm enough. You'll regret it if you don't!

Lovely trail. Great for the dog too. Found a nice flat rock near a 'waterfall' for a picnic

This is a beautiful trail. Lots of different terrain and little challenges! Little ripples and falls along the way. Nice rock formations and random chimney finds! Love coming here especially when the water is high for some natural swimming!
