This trail leads you to a stone road in the middle of the woods. No views, pretty muddy, and not worth the effort.

Beautiful trail!

Such a great view! I completed the trail in October - it definitely has some muddy patches but overall is well marked and fairly well maintained. As far as the drive in goes, Canaan Loop Road (FR 13) is a loop. The trailhead is approximately halfway through the loop. The section of the loop that goes from Blackwater Falls to just before the trailhead requires four wheel drive. However, the section that begins on 32 in Canaan Heights is drivable with a car (mine is a Honda Accord) without four wheel drive, at least in the summer and fall.

Ran to the summit twice today for a workout. Awesome views at the top and great workout.

Alert! Don’t hike during rifle season! The trails were swarming with rifle hunters and we weren’t aware and had no blaze orange. PA allows hunting in their parks.
Trail was well marked and had nice views.

Great trail! Went in the fall, very muddy and had some streams. Slight incline and declines but nothing kids and adults can’t handle. Great views of the river, with many opportunities for photos!

Neat, Historic

Beautiful, well-maintained trail.

Fun trail to hike. Nothing strenuous, but enough uphill sections to get you to break a sweat on a cool fall day. The Cascades did not disappoint. We went after a day of rain, so Meadow Run was flowing nicely. Flat Rock likewise was quite picturesque. And the hike along the edge of the Run down to the Slides was a treat (even if a bit of the trail was under water at the time forcing us to hop from rock to rock in sections). If you like the classic Laurel Highlands nature (hemlocks, ferns, Rhododendrons), you'll love this trail.

There are a couple really great lookouts, not the table rock, you have to go off the trail just a bit to find them, they are unmarked.

There’s a super cool damn on ur hike out to table rock. Very muddy! If you hike the loop it turn into a gravel road, look for a path into the woods on ur left, super cool old cemetery from the 1860’s

Very pretty area, good for a quick hike. Raven’s Rock was my favorite trail (That’s where everyone gets those cool pictures)

Nice hike with a few ruins from an earlier time. Really nice view about 1.5 miles in from trailhead. Trail climbs steeply at times to the ridge a lot of rock formations but limited views, possibly better when leaves are off. Trail follows the ridge before dropping down to the parking area. Purple blazes are hard to see at times, red blazes are more obvious, but the path is well worn and easy to follow.

Really enjoyed this trail!

Well marked trail with lots in a short hike. Waterfall, river, and great rock formations and springs.

Started at Kentuck Campground (very close by). Trail was relatively muddy a d slick but well marked. The sections which are distant from the river are unremarkable. The portion along the river and Cucumber Falls make the trek worthwhile. I did the entire trail and cut through town, across the river on the Graet Allegheny Passage trail and got back on the trail to return to my campsite. That worked well but last mile was a lungbuster.

Got a little lost after reaching the view at the top. Followed the red-orange/lavender blazes. Brought me to Scenic Trail entrance, just a few hundred feet from where I parked at McCune trailhead.

Beautiful falls, easy short trail.

GREAT views!! Very quiet once you get away from the parking lot. Way overcrowded at the parking lot at Bear Rocks. People parking in the grass alongside the road, not picking up their trash and dog crap. So much for a wilderness area. Won't be long til its permit only. Otherwise, even though VERY wet and muddy, it was great hiking! Wear some shoes with ankle support. Most of the trail is very uneven and rocky. Two stream crossings on this route. Neither very hard. First one you need to step rock to rock to avoid shin deep water. Take something to help balance if you have it.

Nice walk that’s scenic and pleasant. A gem on the edge of Thomas

We hiked from the trailhead off Dinner Bell Rd. to the Cascades. Very nice walk, but some pretty steep sections. Hiking shoes are a must, as well as possibly a hiking stick. Check out the climbing rocks before the falls, then take the low trail at the bottom to the falls. It's a bit shorter.

For those worried about the road, there are two ways to access this trail. From inside Blackwater State Park, past the snow tubing area, you’ll need a capable 4WD and a sense of adventure. I’ve done it in a stock Wrangler. It’s muddy, rutted, rocky, etc. and also fun to drive in the proper vehicle. The second way to get to this trail is by accessing the opposite end of Canaan Loop Rd from Rt 32 just a couple miles south of Davis. From this approach the road is fairly well maintained gravel. It’s a longer drive from the Rt 32 end but you can make it in a car. Also, the trail is very muddy and wet. Don’t wear sneakers like my hiking buddy did. You’ll regret it.

Hiked/walked this trail for the first time this weekend. It is beautiful!! Nice path, easy walk and it's easy to walk down to the rocks and creek. I did not walk the full loop. We turned right at the fork and walked along the creek. When the trail started to loop back around and away from the creek, it became very overgrown. There is a presence of poison ivy this way. My husband, being highly allergic to poison ivy, and I decided to turn around and go back the way we came. I was also concerned about ticks and we weren't dressed to walk through high grass and brush. Next time I will dress accordingly to walk through this section but overall a very beautiful and peaceful trail.

We loved this hike! beautiful woods, rock formations and stream. having 2 little ones backpacked on us made it a little challenging but the loop to Cascades & flat Rock then back to parking lot was about 1.5 miles so definitely doable with the kids. We spent the whole day at the Cascades. there were great shallow pools for our 2 year old to splash in for hours!

Beautiful and quick hike! A good view that I would definitely recommend! However, my boyfriend and I did run into a pretty large rattlesnake towards the beginning of the trail head, startled us to the least! Just something to look out for in this area.
