Great Lake loop, there are connected offshoot trails which allows you to cut and wind and loop back around to keep it interesting if you go often. I take the pooch and he loves it. The lake is very pretty and you can see ducks and geese and I even seen a huge beautiful fox on a connecting trail. Do be careful as there seem to be a lot more ticks at this park than others.

very fun and beautiful trail. the falls are beautiful to see at any time of year. trail has multiple access points to enter to play in/Wade in the river. most times we have visited we were able to watch great blue harons fishing.

neat trail that winds around and through some neat rock formations, very pretty. dog / kid friendly

Lovely easy trail along the ledges of large rock formations. The stairway created by the civilian conservation corps is really cool and worth checking out. The signage can be confusing. We ended up doing a loop on the happy days trail and then back on track with the ledges.

Great trail for all levels of experience. The trail markings are a little confusing. We figured out that the Stanford trail splits off into the Brandywine trail and were fine from there. Has a decent incline for a quick trail. The falls really were gorgeous. You take a nice boardwalk/stairs down to two different observation decks. There are signs not to climb down to the water but several people were down there so we climbed down too. It was slippery and I fell down once but my goodness you can’t beat the view.
Everything was very well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and eco-friendly. There were trail maps and state park brochures for taking. We were very impressed.

We enjoyed this trail August 28th and apart from the section that ran alongside the Ohio Turnpike, really enjoyed the walk. Most of it under the trees on winding paths. Not as popular as the towpath where there are a number of bikers, we only met a few fellow hikers. Returned to the Boston Store Visitor Center for the restrooms and then over the road for an iced coffee in the small store.

Take the Stanford/ Brandywine trail. A fun walk down through the woods down the gorge to the river bed then back up around to the falls.

This trail was super fun! It was very unique and easy. There’s a really pretty scenic overlook if you cross the field too.

This is a very nice trail with some great scenery!

Great trail and enjoyed even on a hot day ! Lots of shade on this trail.

Great easy hike. Enjoyed it very much.

Easy hike; well marked course. Both falls are worth the trip; definitely take a dip in the water.

Rustic trail so fun to adventure on. Would be awesome to see when river is running higher. I’ll be back to see it then

Great trail! Love the waterfalls! Def will be getting your feet wet!

Clearly marked for Blue Hen falls. go past the end of trail sign, be prepared to cross water and if it has been raining you will get wet feet. Trail is not marked but it's relatively clear where to go. Fun trail, especially with a dog!

Beautiful

Nice, easy hike with some interesting landscapes to explore. Walking through the ravines and seeing everything covered in moss was fun. Worth exploring if you are at the National Park.

I hiked this trail because of its proximity to the ledges trail (which I highly recommend) and didnt do as much research as I normally would. Although the trail was beautiful and well maintained, I couldn't get over the crowds of people at the falls. Pushing my way through sweaty groups to get a photo of the falls left a bad taste in my mouth. I guess I was hoping the falls would be more of a reward for those willing to hike the 2 miles through the woods instead of a tourist attraction with a parking lot a few yards away.

Pretty enough hike. Definitely keep going past the “end of trail” sign for the second fall. Not much in the way of trail markings but easy enough to see how to go. Both falls were not much to see on the day we went. Fun for the walk in the creek bed.

Gorgeous falls! We went to the left at the fork in the path where the stairs are to your right and I’m glad we did! We loved getting to close out the loop with the gorgeous falls!! Stopped by the pond and it was not worth the detour. Liked that you had the option of skipping the hike and seeing the falls if you physically weren’t up for a hike but be prepared for lots of stairs :)! More than worth it though!!

Beautiful, well maintained trail.

My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape/nature photographer.

The majority of the trail is typical Eastern US hardwood forest and there's no standout feature. The one exception is Beaver Pond. The pond/marsh was created by beavers and there's a nice boardwalk through it. It's a good spot to shoot a sunrise, photograph birds and look for the elusive beavers. ( I saw one while I was there). There's really now reason to any further along the trail.

If you are visiting the Cuyahoga Valley NP and are looking for wildlife or birds, go to the pond.
