Unfortunately the lake was very stagnant making the views “Ok”. Did love all the water lily....made it a worthwhile hike. Unfortunately couldn’t do the full loop due to the connecting path being destroyed by storms

Wow! The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of people. The hike back out was pretty steep, but well work the trip.

Overall, good hike. Only thing like it in the Boro. The main trail - Marshall Knobbs - is less than 3 miles... you have to take BOTH side trails; Valley View and Rocky Path - to get it over 4- close to 5.

very pretty. slippery rocks of course so make sure your shoes have tread on them before going. the trail winds from the land into the water to the rocks to get to the waterfall.

Hiked this entire loop counterclockwise. River was gorgeous and shallow enough to wide to the opposite side for a hammock nap! Valley View trail was the typical walk in the woods. After a wrong turn we ended up cliff side US-231. My favorite on this loop was the Rocky Path trail, appropriately named. Most challenging and fun part of the hike. Much like a typical South Cumberland trail.
Would highly recommend this trail if you’re in the area. After a couple wrong turns we clocked 5.51 miles. Nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Nice paved trail that would be good to take small children. If you want to see the actual arches of the bridge you have to hike down to the creek bottom to see it well. Lots of wildflowers even in August.

This trail gives a decent workout getting to the falls as most is uphill but not too bad of a climb. There are a lot of rocks on the first part of the trail but later gets better. The falls are nice when you get to the end you have to go back the same way you came in. Overall a nice hike.

gorgeous view and fun water hole to play in

Great place!! Short hike down stream then follow the river bed to the falls. Ton of people.

It was a good trail for a 14 week old puppy. A lot of evaluation changes which was nice. Kinda upset it was the only trail that allowed pets. But that’s fine.

Had a good time with my son! Easy and fun! Got 1.5 miles into the hike and got turned around by workers rebuilding the boardwalk! Said it was too dangerous to go any further... I mentioned a sign would have been nice... they said someone tore the signs down and they needed to put more up... I was thinking maybe you could have done that on your way out but I didn’t... they were nice guys! A 2.6 mile hike turned into a 2.9 Hike and had fun...

Love the beautiful fall and hike!!

This trail was awesome. Short and sweet, has cool rock formations and a cool little history behind the lake. This honestly felt like moderate difficulty to me, though. The trails aren’t super well marked but it’s still not that difficult to get around.

It’s a nice little trail with some good views. Heavily trafficked with a great deal of trash around the falls. We hiked out as much trash as we could.

I’m a photographer and have to say that I live 5 minutes away from it and it’s always a new adventure. Being able to capture something new every single time. Will definitely recommend it to all who visit or are becoming homeowners here.

Great hike. Make sure to take the Rocky Path for more of a challenge.

Had a great time this past Sunday with the family. Kinda short but fun.

I’ve run this trail several times and would recommend it to anyone. The map above is misleading as it cuts off about have of the actual Otter Creek Trail. The whole loop comes out to around 8 miles. The terrain is mostly single-track, forested with occasional rocky areas. Easy enough to log some good mileage but hard enough to be interesting. I can usually run the entire loop in 80-90 minutes. Some turnoffs are easy to miss so it’s best to get a map at the entrance until you become more familiar with the park.

Nice trail. Great scenery along the water the whole way. But very short and no access to the water. Wow went on a Friday early afternoon so not too crowded.

Beautiful scenery! Lots of people.

Great hike to many people.

Trail Is closed

Combined with the Tioga Falls Trail, you can get a good 5 mile hike. Even though it was a very hot & muggy day, we enjoyed the area and history. Trails are in good shape. Don't wander off the trails too far unless it is one of the places they want to to go see.

Combined with the Bridges To The Past Trail you can get a good 5 mile hike. Even though it was a very hot & muggy day, we enjoyed the area and history. Trails are in good shape. Don't wander off the trails too far unless it is one of the places they want to to go see.

Cummins Falls is a beautiful place. Unfortunately way too crowded now that it is a state park. People do not wear proper footwear, carry too much stuff and leave trash and things behind.Just did it a couple of weeks ago with two of my kids, but the trail is tough going back up, so don't wear yourself out at the Falls. Be respectful, be careful on the water crossing, carry out all of your stuff and Enjoy!

Great trail that I would rate as intermediate. Some of the Rocky Path section were a little above beginner.
I will make this hike again!

Gorgeous views. We actually hiked at Hemlock on a rainy day, and it was a lot of fun.
