Lots of cool boulders with scrambling opportunities. The hike can be customized in length and difficulty.

Fun trail with the pups. Moderate uphill climbs, beautiful scenery, and well marked. The was quite a bit of mud and some snow in mid-March, but nothing a good pair of boots can’t handle. Will definitely be going again!

Been here only once, did not complete the trail. Where is the best place to park. I found a spot, but did not want to stay there long, there is no street parking is there?

nice walk around the lake. very good marked with yellow signs

Very enjoyable (about 1 hour) walk around the pond. Wide flat trail. We saw friendly people and dogs every few minutes and had plenty of time for private conversations. I will walk this trail again.

Gorgeous water views all the way around. Plan on 3+ hours, it is definitely longer than 6 miles. You are almost always with in sight of a house or road, you are not out alone in nature. We saw one park ranger and one other group of hikers the whole way around. Despite all the houses it was very peaceful (in February).

definitely have a plan of which trails you want to take, and take a picture of the map. it's marked clearly but a lot of the trails intersect and you can go the wrong way pretty easily. they're nice trails to walk on. some of it can get pretty hilly but for the most part it's an easy hike. there's shorter loops you can take but the full loop will take you 3-4 hours.

Rocky trail with several scenic overlooks. Viewing platform at the top. Recommend good footwear. Avoid when rocks are wet especially links like the Bicentennial trail. Treasure this place so close to home.

Today we parked just over the bridge on Manchester Print Works Road off of Great Rd and walked on the paved road around Oley Pond which was a good choice as the trails looked pretty muddy. The pond loop was about 3.5 miles. Very pleasant! We look forward to hiking the trails with appropriate footwear or closer to spring.

This may as well be a dog park. Even though there are trash barrels provided, the majority of dog-walkers still do not pick up after their dogs. Or they do but then leave the bag of poop on the trail...

I don't mind well trained dogs running off leash but the entrance clearly states dogs *must* be leashed and few listen. Everyone seems to think their dog is a brilliant exception to the rules yet maintain little or no control of their pup.

Be prepared to be jumped on and sniffed/followed to the point that it's annoying. You won't get to see much of the beautiful pond views or look for barred owls; you'll be too busy looking out where you step. Don't bother trying to run or bike here. This used to be a great place to get some daily fresh air & exercise but a few irresponsible/inconsiderate users have ruined it for the rest.

Very nice winter hike. I altered the route and was glad I did. Instead of coming back on Park Loop Road, I took the Whistling Cave Trail. Besides being able to see the Whistling Cave, this trail was much less traveled and has a more rustic vibe. There are a few small brooks you have to cross when the water is higher . There are some beautiful rock formations there too! PS wear some micro spiked if going in the winter. There are some icy areas.

I know this woods like the back of my hand ❤️ hiking here since I was a toddler. Peaceful and beautiful lake.

Recently did this trail ! The chasm had a lot of ice but we managed to do it . Beautiful and well maintained trail !

It was a beautiful day and it was easy too.

Beautiful little gem in my home state, lots of snow, probably better off with snowshoes until the snow melts and packs. This trail was a series of different trails, so be careful and keep checking your recording if you want to complete this trail, maybe it was harder to follow in snow too. Very well lit trail so I think in the spring, summer and fall this would be much much easier.

Very dog friendly, great trail! Easily marked!

Grate trails. Well marked and clean. Nice scenery. Took my dog along with me on this hike no issues there.

Hiked a variation of the Reservation Loop Trail from suggestion by Katharine Lange. Park at Visitors Center and follow Donbrowo Trail to ski area. Donbrowo not shown on my AllTrails app. Pass lodge and pick up Balance Rock Trail to Old Indian Trail. Balance Rock is an interesting large erratic. Avoid crossing active ski area by bearing right onto Semuhenna to West Side then back to Old Indian. Check out vista to SW not marked on map before final climb to summit. Down Harrington passed Vista well marked to Link to Jack Frost (very nice walk through large evergreens) to High Meadow (another vista) and back to Visitors center via Bicentennial. High Meadow to Bicentennial link not shown on AT app. About 5 mile loop in about 3 hours. Certainly would do this loop again. 40 degrees and 20 MPH winds made it chilly on top.

Did Mountain House Trail. Lot of people but nice trail.

Well marked trail with a few spots to stop and relax w/picnic tables. Parking is easy to find and the trail starts right across the street. I will be going back when I have more time to explore.

excellent hike for adults and older kids

This hike was great, the green trail is hard but manageable.

The lookout is amazing. My 4 and 6 yr made it.

Awesome trail, it is a little hard for younger kids. I've been 3-4 times I love it every time because it is so unique.

Not a loop at all, so many trails cross crossing it wasn’t even enjoyable as you always had to be guessing which way to go

Great trail. Well marked.

So much fun with kids and adults! You should be physically fit, as you’re climbing through rocks and boulders.
