Golden Eagle Trail ist ein 10.6 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Rundweg in der Nähe von Cammal, Pennsylvania. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, durch schönen Wald und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist am besten von April bis Oktober zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Hiked this Christmas day with my pup! Would definitely reccomend this for a winter hike. I did clockwise and yes, it's most definitely a workout so make sure you start off early in the day. Trekking poles are definitely necessary with the stream crossing and ascending and descending of course. I however did not have microspikes but definitely reccomend with the slippery snow and ice. Trail head is directly across road from parking area. I appreciate reviews with directions so that's where it starts! My 45lb dog did fantastic so as long as your dog is okay with multiple (many) stream crossings and steeper trails they'll do great!

Hiked again after 2 weeks... and it's an entirely different trail with a few days of rain. Wolf run and Bonnell run both had significantly more water making for numerous small beautiful waterfalls... but also more challenging creek crossings. The ascents/descents were also more slippery due to wet fallen leaves. Just an awesome hike.

Fantastic trail! Fall color kicking in... and perfect day for a hike. Did it counter-clockwise starting with the Raven's Horn. Saw exactly 1 other hiker. Will absolutely be back.

I hiked this trail clockwise...and if you do it that way it should be rated difficult. It’s a fair amount of up & down throughout but nothing crazy & then you get to the final climb & it is brutal. I’ve done a ton of hiking & this climb was a real challenge especially being 7-8 miles in already. Very steep & plenty of loose gravel. Make sure to have proper hiking shoes! The final lookout(Ravens Horn) is breathtaking. It took us about 7 hours total with stopping along the way. I would do it again but I’m pretty sure counterclockwise will be the way I’d go unless I’m looking for an extreme workout!

Terrific hike. Beautiful Forrest. Quiet and relaxing with a couple of decent vistas. The rock formations and creek hike make it worth it. Honestly you can skip the two spurs. One goes down to the main road and is a waste of altitude and the other is a dead end to nowhere. I would have given this hike a 5 if I had done the 9 mile version. All in all a good day.

parts of it are very Rocky and steep. for the most part it wasn't too bad. lots of beautiful nature; bears, deer, turkeys, coyotes. Definitely felt the burn after this one. loved every moment.

the trail was set up to use a presumably normally dry creek bed for a good portion. we went out after a good rain and were walking in a few inches of water for quite a ways. not impassable, but also poor design.

WOW this hike had it all! Steep, rocky pathways, babbling brooks, cliffs, rocky outcroppings.... beautiful. Was not overgrown but a bit narrow in some spots. We didnt see much wildlife at all, not even the rattlesnakes. The trail starts across the street from the parking lot. Truly a PA wilds experience!

Super overgrown trail with very narrow paths. Mostly flat and too many annoying bugs. Also annoying having to cross the stream a bunch of times. Views were not impressive; had to walk on grass at the top. Should be rated as moderate. Would not return.

This was a good hike, lots of different terrain. We got on the trail at 6am and finished around 11am. The difficulty in this hike is the length, definitely recommend going counter clockwise and getting the steep incline over first. There were a ton of creek crossings, possibly 15-16. There wasn’t a ton of water so we didn’t have to take off our shoes and socks, but I can imagine that would get annoying when there is a lot more water flowing. The last two miles there were a ton of nettles, definitely recommend wearing good thick hiking pants. We saw a bear towards the top of the mountain, but he was more scared of us than we were of him. We were glad to get the hike over with in the morning so we could enjoy the cooler morning weather while hiking and the creek during the hot afternoon, but the downside of that is the morning fog. We weren’t able to see anything at the first vista.

WEAR LONG PANTS!!! The final 3 miles of this trail is overgrown with stinging nettle. There isn’t a view until the very top, but it is nice. We ran into a talkative rattlesnake right off the trail!

Hiked what I believe to be the first part of this trail. It was called on the map Ravens Horn. Saw 2 rattlesnakes nestled in @ the rocks. Definitely recommend this one!

Nice, first part strenuous but not difficult. Many creek crossings. Did not see any snake or bear. Along the creeks, there are plenty of nettles, so wear long pants! Some bugs, but not too bad IMO. Left at 1:30pm, returned at 5:55pm, but walked briskly without break (it was pouring rain) and am used to hiking.

Lots of stinging nettle! I wore shorts and braved the stinging nettle haha but it's a great trail and well worth the experience. So beautiful. Lots of water for my pup and I. Great challenge leaving us feeling tired but satisfied at the end. The vistas were beautiful and plenty of them. Amazing rock formations throughout the trail. Clean and well kept trail.

Gorgeous trail with some terrific views of The Valley. There are several nice lookouts to take a break and eat lunch or enjoy some quiet meditation

was a gourgous hike. defiantly brutal with the inclines. bugs were also insane but that's to be expected. well worth the trip. found what I came looking for which were snakes. 5 garter snakes and 5 timber rattlesnakes at the very top overlook.

Overall the trail is great! Definitely watch for rattlesnakes up at the RavensHorn. Most of the way up Wolf Run and down Bonnell Run you will encounter LOTS of stinging nettles! Lots of creek crossings but they were either dry or low. For a 9 mile hike, this is a hard 9 miles.

Great views, beautiful day for a family hike on Mother's day weekend. It wasn't easy doing the entire loop, but the views were worth the effort.
