One of my favorite trails.

Beautiful trail. At times the red trail was poorly marked. The carpet of leaves could not give hints when the markings were poor. Not many other hikers for a Saturday afternoon. Challenging terrain at times which made it fun. Nature center was very nice. Nice to have restrooms as well.

Plan to go back and do the entire trail. Really liked it a lot.

great if you can avoid the freaks. if you plan on using the shelter or picnicking on the weekends make sure you get there really early

Like many others, I had only been to the first fall since the sign said "End of Trail". I decided to go past the sign this time and it was great! I went around 9:30 on a Saturday morning in early October and there weren't a whole lot of people hiking the trail (the Buckeyes were playing later that day, maybe that was part of it...). The hike along the creek is a lot of fun! When you get to the second fall it's very peaceful and relaxing. I do recommend this trail.

Nice hills to break a sweat. Pretty busy on this beautiful fall day. If you seek total solitude try another trail

hiked down to the falls and back, took the wrong trail up the hill after the turn around, but added to the fun. could've sworn we heard a growl!? had our small dog, so possibly coyote. will do again, next time come across the longer trail from the north

A short easy hike to a pretty waterfall. It is not far up the road, or the Buckeye Trail, from the Boston Visitor Center. You can also lengthen the hike by continuing on to Buttermilk Falls.

Awesome trail with two very scenic waterfalls. A must hike trail for sure!

This trail was great really easy to get to for the Blue Hen falls and a fun little hike to the other falls!

The trail is easy until you go past the falls then it is difficult and very basic.

Awesome hike. lucky enough that a front moved through the day before and brought a lit of rain. As mentioned previously, definitely worth the trip to Buttmilk Falls.

Fantastic and challenging trail. Some of the best I've seen in Northeast Ohio. Great elevation challenges and some difficult and rough terrain, but varied. The trail is a narrow footpath most of the way and some sections are overgrown, especially closer to Jaite. This is a great way to get away from the business of some of the park's trails, and it's almost entirely shaded in summer. Add a few miles on the towpath to make this a loop (take the connector trail back from Red Lock to Jaite).
