this is paved trail and is over run with bicycles riding way to fast and not signaling when they ride up on you. very busy place. Good for a little family walk and strollers.

Did the A trail with 2 teens. challenging spots for a nice workout. Not too crowed. Going back again for sure!

Great trail. I was very impressed on how well the trail was marked.

Ticks. Lots of ticks. Be warned, be prepared. The reforestation area has a lot of open field and wildflowers.
Scenic trail with a couple areas crossing and following the small stream. Trails weren't very well marked. Didn't complete the loop, ended up turning back half way as the trail became too overgrown with lots of thorny bushes. Did not make it to any area that overlooks the Susquehanna.

This is a very difficult hike but the views were amazing .This was my longest hike ever and I will do it again . I have no complaints at all .

for those of you that hike this and made it to the look out did you turn right at the pink ribbons before the campsite. we had trouble finding it.

fun trail, easy enough for kids too.

On The Rocks (OTR) 50k & 33.3k:
Ran the OTR Trail Runs event using almost all of this trail. The OTR is a circuitous loop course. I wanted to do the 50k (three loops), but opted for the 33.3k (two loops). No waypoints or photos.

What a race! Did it in 90+ heat, which is take-down heat on a course like this — a super rocky, Grand-Canyon-style course guaranteed to roll your ankles 3 or more times.

Given the cutoff time for the 50k and the rocky harshness of the course, I’d say this is not for beginners, and is geared for skilled ultra runners. Even if you are skilled, there’s a high risk for falls, ankle rolls, sprains, and DNFs. It’s listed as having 4-1/2 climbs per loop — trust me, it has more climbs than that, and the elevation profile is my witness.

I plan to return to run this course on my own terms, for training and sport. It’s a toughy, but a great trail to train on for hard runs such as this one.

Hiked the whole trail, with the last 2.5 miles on the low grade. Has to be marked better as I had to refer to the app to find locations. Only one outstanding view, at Turkey Hill.

I did this trail with another person and we parked one car at one end and another car at the other end. I really kicked our butts. Make sure you bring the necessary supplies. There are plenty of water sources along the path. Lots of hills but nothing too difficult.

Great short, moderate hike. The first half of the trail is very well maintained and there are plenty of signs to keep you on the trail. The second half is a bit more rugged and has a few steep climbs. Even though the parking lot for the area was full, the trail was still lightly trafficked. There are plenty of paths from the trail that lead down to the water. The views, the moderate hills, and having the trail to ourselves the majority of the time earns this trail four stars.

This was one of our first hikes, we loved it, especially the multiple steam crossings!

This trail was a major disappointment. First, there are only 2 parking spots for the trailhead so be prepared for that. We picked up a map that was provided at the trailhead, which was nice, but thank goodness we did. We followed the blue trail on the map and it was the most overgrown trail that I’ve ever been on. We missed one of the turns to go back over the creek were lost for a bit. Not only was the trail overgrown, it was overgrown with thorn bushes so we had to walk through thorns to remain on what was the trail. We have multiple scratches after leaving this trail. There was no view of the river. I would not recommend this trail.

Nice walk along the river, a couple decent hills.

Did The A & C trails (B was closed). Was around 10.5 miles start to finish. Trail A is the most popular because of the rock scrambling (which is fun!), but I also really enjoyed Trail C because of how close to the water the trail takes you. It’s also much quieter with fewer people.

I have done B & C several times with my dogs. Go early to avoid all the stupid people who think they know how to “hike”. I have had to render first aid on these trails because people hike in flip flops. Both of my dogs love these trails for rock and creek time. A trail is closed to dogs so I have not done that section. Trails are rocky and well traveled.

Came and did this trail on a week trip from Utah. Pretty easy for anyone in good health and marked very well.

The trail and scenery are beautiful. I was a little taken aback by how many people there were wearing flip flops and carrying pool floaties though....I guess that's what I get for going on one of the hottest Saturdays of the year so far!

This was a beautiful hike. It's a little challenging at spots around the creek. I would suggest going through the meadow first and then looping around to the creek especially if it is hot outside.

One of the best in the area!

did this with 2 preschoolers and a dog. challenging enough to keep it interesting for me, but still doable for the others.

Great view of the Susquehanna. Partly obstructed by fence.

Nice trail, moderate traffic ,easy hike

We only went to the overlook. Nice hike. Don’t go in June. Too many spiders.

Got there at 7 this morning, only folks there. Great hike, love the rock scrambling. Couldn’t believe how much added debri there is from the flooding...
Saw a ton of deer, a beaver, turtles, salamanders and other fun stuff along the way.... always a good time.

Second time on this trail. Got a bit confused at one point. A lot of different colored trail markets at a creek crossing. Needed to turn right instead of left.

Decent scrambling but very crowded.

Great trail. The terrain is moderately rugged in some spots. One trail marker was on a felled small tree by the stream and I missed it. Ended up on a dead end trail but backtracked and got going the right way. This is a must-hike trail!

A truly awesome trail on a beautiful day. We seriously underestimated the waterfalls and the stream, which were the gems of the hike. The simple beauty of the open spaces, fields of wild flowers really, added to the experience. A great day!
