Awesome trail. This is an all season trail for hiking and running

Very enjoyable trail that goes through many different environments.

Nice easy hike...not strenuous at all except for walking in a bit of snow. Won't be going back till the temps are sub freezing and more snow.....EXTREMELY muddy.

Nice and easy, little ice, lightly packed snow today. pretty much as exciting as you'll find in the area. Did it as an out back in under 5 hours.

two great falls... one clearly marked, the other is a more rustic trail. you can simply walk the stream to get to the other. wear waterproof boots!

Nice wooded trail and the parking lot is less crowded than the Ledges parking lot on a cold day during the government shutdown. I saw one other person on the trail. Hilly in places and muddy after recent rain/melted snow. Beautiful area with some pines and many other trees and plant life.

Love this trail! Visited after Christmas, during the government shutdown. Very popular trail, the parking lot was crowded on a cold day and I encountered probably 15 other hikers on the trail itself. The ledges are stunning and the trail runs both above and below them. The scenic overlook is beautiful. The trail is hilly and rocky in a few places. Even with recent rain and melted snow, the trail was not muddy. I did see people exploring off trail and climbing on and in the ledges, even though signs advise against it. Connects to other area trails as well.

The little brother to the famous Ledges Trail, this is a nice flat trail with changing scenery. Our 5 Y.O. Hiking Princess kept up like a champ, and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep her interest. Landscape and trail conditions were both impressive considering it’s the 5th day of 2019, it’s 50 degrees, and the government has been shut down for 2 weeks. A perfect start to a year full of adventure here in our Home Park and across the USA! Credit to my wife Amy for the photos. #SummitTrailBlazers

Great winter hike, a little slippery but still great! Hiked all the way to the Buttermilk Falls.

A great trail, fun for the whole family, including dogs! We took the time to explore off of the trail and do some scrambling in between cracks in the ledges.

Pretty and diverse trail. Varied landscape.

Our family really enjoyed this walk. Absolutely beautiful scenery and the seven and nine year olds loved climbing and adventuring!

Went with a group ranging in ages 7-70. Great hike for everyone with so many rocks to clamber over and through or stay on the main trail. Also a beautiful view.

The Pine Grove section of this hike is very nice and quiet. We had the trail all to ourselves. Big contrast to the Ledges with all it's rock outcroppings and people! The view from the overlook was outstanding, even on an overcast day. The distance is probably closer to 4.2 miles per my GPS.

Nice trail that can get a little muddy (nothing wrong with that) that wasn't very busy at all.

Loved this trail, perfect path for dogs too. Went after it rained mostly dirt and woods path so make sure to wear proper water proof shoes. Also some trees down along the bath but nothing we couldn’t get around

Best hike around if you love pines, did a moonlight hike and a coyote let us know we weren't welcome.

This trail was a great surprise. Secluded & scenic. Hiked with my dog this time, but can’t wait to come back for a run.

Long trail, but overall very nice and secluded. Signs can get confusing. Lots of different environments that you get to experience and walk through. A few pretty waterfalls. My pup and I take a nice nap after this trail. I uploaded a photo that is either at the beginning or the end depending on where you start.

not a difficult trail, nice views probly better when it's nicer out

Pretty easy trail. Cool scenery. The waterfall is better than a lot of others I’ve seen in this area. Pretty muddy in November but still cool.

Nice easy trail that took 2 hours leisurely walk.
Only seen one other hiker and unfortunately a group of loud mouth cross fitters I could hear coming a mile away chasing away any wildlife that was to be seen.

It's pretty easy to do. The views are pretty crazy and you can do some exploring on some of the features. be careful though, not all of the rocks are perfectly set.

Fun for the kids. They really liked the trail and climbing around the water. Not too difficult for our 2 and 5 year old but fun for us all.

Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

Great trail. Short and an easy loop, but the inclines are nice and the few rock ledges are great for taking a rest and looking over the gorge. I take pups there AFTER we’ve gone for relatively long hike to cool off.

Love the scenic view, great hike/workout!
