trail running

Good mix of ascents with enough flats, and pretty technical for running due to rocks and tree roots but well worth a look. I’m looking forward to doing it again but without the ice next time.

I ran my first trail run on here. I stuck with the red trail but ventured off on some other little side trails closer to the lake which made it a little more interesting then the regular open grass and gravel marked trail. It was beautiful and added some extra challenge. Do be scared to be adventurous. Keep the lake in view and you won’t get lost.

Did this today with a light dusting of snow on the ground. A little more slippery near the falls/tubs, but able to navigate. Lengthened the hike to 4 miles along the yellow trail by crossing the train tracks and following down falls. Was able to go along the tornado path from this past summer to see many downed trees...very crazy to see. Have done this hike in the summer, but was very enjoyable in the winter. Trail well marked and quiet.

Nice day hike if you are local. Nota challenging hike, but enough to get the blood flowing.

Nice hike. I think I did the blue loop trail which is blue and orange much of the way. I started to the right of the pavilion. it was muddy early on. About mid way you have to cross the creek a few times. This would be difficult to do without getting your shoes under water. I took my shoes and socks off for 2 crossings I wouldn't have been able to do without getting my shoes wet so I was able to finish with dry socks and shoes. About 4 miles. Moderate uphill at the end. Rest of trail was not too difficult except trying to keep from getting my feet wet or muddy.

this was such an awesome hike.
will DEFINITELY be going there again!

Get hike! Did Both Pinnacle and Pulpit Rock! Great combo!

Decided to do the blue trail. was a little muddy after the rain. lots of interesting ruins along the trail. would definitely be going back.

Great hike!! Beautiful day but the trail is very muddy.

Loved this trail! We started at the Klapperthal Rd entrance(the road says no outlet, at the end there's parking)
it looks around the mounting with a beautiful view after about 3/4 mile. Just after the lookout(on your left) on the right there is a big cliff that you can climb up a small trail to an even better lookout. Be careful when going off the trail to the rocks, it can be a bit slippery because of the wet leaves!
The portion of the trail that we hiked was pretty flat, with some smaller inclines here and there.
We took out dog and she loved it!
At the "end" there is a gate where we stopped, but I believe you can follow the trail up to the right, just not sure about the terrain on that section.

If you need a quick fix of Mother Nature this the place convenient and very easy trails the Main trail follows the river to the Tobyhanna warter falls small in size but very powerful if your quite and still you will observe a few local residents across the waterfalls lives a giant beaver he usually chills under the boulders directly across the falls also large otters observe the little red squirrels along the trail they are very cool

Awesome hike. Regardless which direction you take it, you will begin by going uphill early on then walking the ridge for a few miles before going back downhill again to the reservoir road.

Short hike with friends—the water made it scenic and so did the hidden gnome!

Great trail. But without this app I would of been lost. Sometimes the markings were sparse enough ( especially along the creek) that I thought I missed a marking. Trail criss crosses across a creek which can be very confusing. But, nonetheless I had a great time exploring the landscape.

Wonderful scenery and decently well marked trails. just make sure you look up every so often to not miss the trail markers. We followed the yellow markers for a bit until we reached the train tracks and the open river. Almost missed the continuation of the trail that turns blue right after the white train track bridge. Many skinny portions to the trail and lots of rocks to climb up and around. Towards the end we got a little stuck and had to cross the creek to make it to the road. Overall the trail was a lot of fun with some sketchy parts that are a little slippery. Parking lot is a little small so be careful.

The Orange trail is nice and has some pretty scenery. However, staying on the Orange trail is limited (and full of traffic). If you're looking for a more challenging and less travelled hike, follow the AllTrails loop -- Orange trail to Blue trail to Red trail and back to Orange.

Nice trail for younger children.

Amazing hiking trail to run with lots of doffrent terrain . Definitely is good trail running shoes for the decent !

Me and my friends walked this trail a cold Sunday morning. Since it had snowed, it was hard to walk at our usual pace. It was very muddy and so many puddles. Aside that, it was a beautiful hike! Well worth our 2hr. drive. Would definitely do it again but in the summer. The views were stunning!

The trail has it all! Waterfalls, evergreens, well marked, loops and strait aways. It’s close to perfect, even in winter.

Great day hike with the ladies. Very empty on a December Sunday

Good place to walk your dog

Have done this trail several times over the past month. Nice little hike - not a lot of blazes to follow, but also not a lot of places where you could make a wrong turn. Bring a change of shoes! It is MUDDY in quite a few areas.

Really pretty trail along the river with several small falls. Be attentive to which trail you’re on as there are a bunch of trails that intersect and are in the area. I’d recommend you start by going the direction of down the stairs and to the water first, that way you have a good upstream view and the second half loops back through the forest. Easy/moderate level.

Sept 2018- We left at 11:15 AM. Took us a little over 4 hours. Very pretty overlook.

This map is misleading as it starts you on the Exeter Trail which is 2.5 miles of flat trail next to the Schuylkill River before you get to the actual Neversink Loop. If you want to skip the extra 5 miles, look for the Klapperthal parking lot in your GPS. That said, the flat portion was lovely and a very easy walk. The day I did this I only hiked up to Witches’ Hat, and I missed a sign about a closed trail due to hunting (there was a large branch covering it). There are a bunch of side trails here so I suggest checking out the Neversink Mountain Preserve website online to see all of them. There is personal property mixed in as well, so just be aware of that.

Easy and beautiful. We were looking for a short hike before sunset and were really impressed by the beauty of such a short trail, especially the portion along the river.

Took Ridley Creek white trail from loop #17 to yellow trail. A connector trail off of yellow trail to various trails in Tyler. Nice and quiet....not one other hiker for 2 hours...maybe because it was 22 degrees.

Nice quiet trail, but I had difficulty reconciling the maps and trail markers.

very nice trail just outside of the city! you don't have to go far for a great view, and if you do hike the whole loop, then you're in for a nice, moderate hike!
