This trail is very well marked with plenty of other trails to explore. I wouldn't rank it as Hard but more on the Moderate side. Definitely watch your step though as it is rocky.

Wear boots. Go left and hike/scramble up the trail. Plan to take about three hours on this hike, maybe longer depending on how long you take when you take a breather.

My wife, pup and I hiked September 8th, 9:00 am, ~65 degree weather. It took three hours and was a terrific hike, but we really couldn't have been luckier with the temperature and the recent rains. The falls were beautiful and the air was clean permitting a great vista of the Lehigh valley. We went right on the Glen Onoko Loop up to the falls. It was reasonably steep up the ~1,000 foot climb and I imagine going left could be difficult. We had a dog so we didn't want to go the more difficult route, but we may have missed a few falls. If rain is a possibility, ankle high boots are a good idea. Otherwise, low cut hiking shoes aren't unreasonable. Apple maps won't take you to the correct trailhead. There is a sign on Main street for the falls, soon after you get off of North street that will take you in the correct direction.

very pretty hike! throughout the whole hike its stunning with tons of small waterfalls and beautiful rocks stacked up. the scene at one fall is pretty but be careful not to slip. the beginning is a little difficult to navigate but this app should help as well as "east coast hiker" just google that and he gives great directions in the beginning after that you'll start to see pink/orange markers which later turns into a green if you go right and I think blue if you go left? I'm not sure about left because if you go left it takes you through the whole trail, I was with my husband who got hungry

The trail is pretty well marked most of the way, certain areas didn't have markings but following the beaten path will get you back on track. Some slippery spots along the falls but overall pretty stable footing. Nice variety of difficulty levels and views, certain stretches of long uphill/downhill treks. Very rocky, boots with ankle support recommended. The overlook is not that large of an area, we lucked out being there without anybody else but it was worth the view. The Lehigh River Overlook is pretty well grown up with saplings and would not recommend stopping. Overall a good hike if you want to burn a few hours with a variety of difficulties. Recommend going earlier in the morning than early afternoon due to traffic

Amazing views! mountain bikers were very friendly towards me being on foot. I did get a little lost though. a little more signage would be appreciated.

Great hike! Not too steep. Great views once at the top. Watch out for snakes!

All rope bridges crossing the water were knocked down, making it pretty difficult to navigate. You will get wet!

Awesome trail! Definitely a little difficult. I started on the falls side (orange blaze) and followed the red blaze to complete the loop.

We did part of the charcoal and prairie loop. The grass was God awful high and itchy. There is no shade. I guess it definitely like crossing the prairie in the heat of summer.

would not ride here if it's your first time on a mountain bike, can be discouraging. great trails !!!! as soon As your a lil in shape. genes trail is tough.

Great trail! Went on a busy weekend during the afternoon- the part of the trail near the falls was a bit crowded but everyone moved along at a good pace...markings were kept very well, and we loved the challenge in elevation changes. Definitely wear hiking boots and other clothes to change into if you are interested in going in the falls or walking through the streams.

Easy and fun, took our dog.

make sure your dog is on leash. trail comes next to a property with dogs loose in backyard I'm assuming with electric fence that dont seem friendly.

Definitely a climb on many of the spots going on the trail by the waterfalls which isn’t always well marked. Did some climbing to the side and back. I like the vista but there are better ones in Jim Thorpe. I took the red trail up to the fire line trail and back. Always interesting things to see whether it is remains of the resort that burned down or the underground tunnels by the parking lot. Parking was a little tough as the whitewater rafter buses take many spots away. Beautiful place year round. I have been here when Falls were ice and you think summer is a challenge? I give this five stars because of the workout and fun of the falls but vistas aren’t that great except in the fall when you have better views.

Great day hike! Beautiful waterfall views, moderately hard trek up but it’s a quick loop.

Love the hike. It starts as an easy walk on the wooded trail. The last half mile or so got a bit challenging with very rocky uphill hike. However it’s very well marked and nicely maintained. We got soaked by a heavy thunderstorm while admiring the view from Pulpit Rock. We took the gravel road down. It’s not quite as shady so the lingering rain was nice. Will definitely take the hike again and probably go to Pinnacle after.

Great hike and is accurately rated as difficult. I hiked the loop twice, once starting left, and then starting right. I recommend starting left because then you are hiking the most difficult part first and it is safer to hike up the falls than down. Not great markings to follow but still doable.

Not too many people know about this nature preserve but the hiking and biking trails are terrific. Gorgeous scenery with a mix of low growth bushes and woods, depending on which trails you take. I did the blueberry trail, waterfall loop, stonehenge trail, view loop, and conglomerate loop in a counter-clockwise pattern. Ended up being almost 7 miles. Not really sure why it's rated as hard. For the most part I would say it falls under the "easy" category. View loop is more "moderate" with rocky terrain and some steeper elevation changes, but nothing overly challenging.

Moderately difficult trail. Definitely wear boots. Wet and slippery in several areas. Do the Orange trail to the left to go up. At the top turn right at the fire pit and take the Red Trail. Ironically the first marker you see is a Blue Marker. This is the Red Trail even though the first market is Blue. Several sections could use a grab wire or rope. One slip and you are over the edge. Winter time be prepared for lots of ice.

Great, scenic hike. Take a waterproof backpack, wear proper hiking boots, bring water and a snack. On very nice days it can get busy and there are a lot of people who don't hike with proper attire, but it didn't bother us. People were very courteous and friendly. Take the Orange trail to hike up the falls, it's nice and cool, lots of great waterfalls! We didn't hike the whole Orange trail, once we got to the top we cut over to go down on the Blue marked trail. It is very rocky, slippery in some spots, but the adventure is fun!

Great family hike, moderate difficulty, well worth the effort! Best to wear hiking boots or trail shoes.

Fantastic hike. Very difficult climb and certainly dangerous at many spots along the climb. We took our 15 year old and 6 year old (who is tough as nails). They did really great. Do NOT attempt this climb without hiking boots and pants. We were crawling in spots and on all fours going up. Worth the hour to the top. The falls are breathtaking! I was amazed at how many people were climbing back down the same way they came up. Seriously dangerous! When you get all the way at the top of the last fall you’ll find a fire ring. The trail on your right takes you back down a very easy decent right into the parking lot.

Great hike! The trail isn’t marked well and it’s easy to get off track without using the map on AllTrails. The waterfalls were amazing, especially with all the rain, but quite a bit of the trail had ankle deep standing water too. The overlooks were also just as beautiful.

Difficult at some points but very worth it! Be careful as it is very slippery in places!

Great trail very physical need to have good boots and be careful lots of fun spectacular views

definitely worth the effort
