Nice for all. Upper loop moderately steep but if you want to avoid it you can just do in and out.

A pleasant trail with moderate rocky terrain and hills. It is quite wet as it is part of a large watershed are. Pay attention to the route since the Makenna Trail intersects and joins it; you can go right past some of the turns if you’re not careful! The Mt. Hope School foundations and a Spring house were lovely caveats to the sights.

Great trail for the kids

First off I counted 36 stream crossings from the top of Roaring Run to the merger with Painted Rocks. Of these, 30 are not easy in Spring with snowmelt. So either go in Summer or bring waterproof boots.

Wear pants. There are fields of thorny vines on most trails with some areas overgrown. This was in mid March.

Otherwise I enjoyed the hike. Didn’t see anyone else.

Coming up from the County Line TH, fairly step at first then a lot of rocks before leveling out near too.

Nice enough trail, great workout. Like another reviewer said, the trail is VERY poorly marked, in areas....if I hadn't downloaded the AllTrails "interactive" map, I would have really been wandering a few times! I hiked it 2/18, and it was really muddy, but it had been a particularly wet week or so previous. I can imagine when there's a lot of horse traffic, it gets to be a mess. Lastly...the mileage and elevation figures are a bit low. My Garmin, which tends to be a bit "stingy" with the numbers, said it was 7.1 miles and 1380' of elevation gain.

Fantastic trail for the entire Family. Beautiful views, especially at sunset on top of the over view.

Good series of trails you can piece together in this area. Did the about a 10 mile hike all together in December and it was difficult due to snow and multiple stream crossings but a great hike for those that like a bit more of a challenge. Plan to revisit in the spring and when i don't have to worry about dunking my foot in freezing water! Have waterproof boots or plan to get your feet wet.

While it is beautiful, the trails are not well marked. There are some old marks here and there and in clusters but not reliable in many parts.

Nice trail. We only made it two miles. Easy grade to walk.

Beautiful trail. Steep in sections. The trail blazes have faded and are very difficult to see. However, it is easy to see the trail without them. Once you intersect with other trails, the trails are well marked

Great trail

nice short jaunt on on the on the bike trail

I found this trail to be not well-maintained and very very muddy. In a few spots, it was beautiful, and had a great view, but for the most part, it was an incredibly boring hike.

Fairly easy trail run. Nice rolling hills and all in the shade. I tracked my run and I think the trail is more like 5 miles including the offshoot to the overlook. Had a good time on it though.

Very nice trail. Some of the bridges along the trail are rotted and falling apart though. This would make a great Eagle Scout project for a local scout and would be a great improvement to the trail

This trail is well blazed and was actually quite busy while we were there. I would rate this as a moderate hike due to the moderate incline that seems endless. For at least half a mile it feels like you are climbing a mountain and you will never reach the top. However, the journey is well worth it because the rocks are beautiful. There's plenty of rocks to explore and a beautiful vista overlook from the top of one of them. You can see for miles. I suggest driving to the rocks as there's a parking area and picnic area by the rocks for those who aren't up for the hike. We took the Trap Loop trail on the way back and found it much easier hiking. The descent back into the valley wasn't near as steep as the ascent up the hill. The Trap loop trail is less traveled and provides more privacy. I want to come back and do this trail in the spring as there are thousands of natural rhodedendrons and mountain laurel bushes that will be beautiful when blooming.

Great trail for all skill levels, love the swinging bridge!

Did this hike twice. We parked at clear creek campground and hiked up to the overlook and took the trap loop back down to the campground. Such a great hike.

Extremely beautiful, just a little crowded

Pretty trail but we missed the gorge. I think we needed to take the sharp uphill left after the 2nd bridge. We continued straight and ended up on private property.

This trail was a nice little hike. The old growth pines were beautiful and strong and the trail itself was well maintained and marked. I did not care for the recent seats that were shabily cut into a few old fallen pines, to me it took a little away from the asthetics. For novice hiker I would rate this as an easy hike. For a beginner this is slightly moderate. Took about two hours with a dog leading the way and a baby on my wife and my back's.

Perfect hike for family my 4 year old got
A little tired but made it all the way

Beautiful hike on Longfellow and Ancient Forest trails, though there were a couple very large trees down across the trails. Wish each trail had its own separate entry on here since we didn't do Joyce or Rhododendron :)

Staying on the lower level of the gorge trail makes for an easy run.. take it up a notch by looping around to the left after the second suspension bridge and head up the hill! Killer leg workout!

Trails not super fantastically well marked. But then we're walking with two puppy cattle dogs which make everything harder,
