be prepared for lots of rocks

Improperly marked trails that changed colors without warning, really narrow trails with brush overgrowing, crawling with mosquitoes, and not a lot of sights to see. Wasn't a fan.

The views are absolutely breath taking. Great place to fully enjoy nature and do some self reflection.

Fantastic trail!! Great workout headed up the red dot trail and incredible scenery toward the end of the blue dot on the way back. I was traveling through on a business trip and I am so glad that I took the time to do this hike! Good trail shoes are a must - it’s very rocky and slippery if wet.

Awesome views of Pennsylvania from the NJ side of the water gap. The trail can be rough in some places. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

Absolutely beautiful park!

It is a very nice place to take your dogs and just have a nice day walking and playing. Highly recommend.

It wasn’t to hard but it let me know that Mother Nature can do wonders. Loved it.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

Excellent work out. The trail can become confusing as there are many trails that intersect with each other, so you need to keep your eyes on the trail markers or you could be heading down a different path. That happened to me, but it turned out ok as I was following the white trail, then I was on the pink trail that lead to the blue/white trail to lookout point. From there I followed the Blue and white trail to the Falls, a much easier access to the falls from the lookout point. From the falls you can either turn back to climb the rocks to continue towards the lake. From my perspective, climbing up would be much better than going down. Be careful climbing up as you may loss track of the trail, which I did, and had to go back down a bit to pick the trail back up. from there to the lake there are several more falls, which I'll go back later to photograph, before arriving at the lake. From their I ended up following another trail that took be back to the look out point, then following the blue/white trail, ended back at the trail head. Total miles was 2.9. I'll go back.

Nice hike. Not very steep but surely gets your heartrate up at times. Both Red dot and Blue dot are very well marked. The blue dot trail is gradual and longer but worth the effort while coming down with the jumpin pool and waterfall. Red dot trail means business right at the outset till the top. The views from the top are lovely with the Water gap below and Mount Minsy on the opposite side in PA. If lucky can spot some Bald eagles soaring above.

Good beginners trail. Enjoyed the walk. Three hours with nature!!!!

Great trail with a few areas of steeper incline to get the heart really pumping. I did the entire trail, however, I would avoid the southern parts of the trail for the next few weeks until the bugs and flooding die down if you don’t want to deal with gnats and mud. The southern portion was super muddy, I was covered from the knees down by the time I finished. I was also followed by a swarm of bugs and mosquitoes the whole time, and walked through about 7 spider webs on the southern portion. Otherwise, the Boone trail is a really enjoyable, peaceful hike!

Great local hike with a pretty waterfall!

Great hike, devils pool is refreshing.....but rocks are very slippery! Hardly any restrooms though

Great great hike. We took the red dot trail there and back because I had my one year old on my back. The incline was really steep at some points but a really beautiful trail, very well marked. The views at the top make it so worth it. Absolutely breath taking.

Great hike. Red trail climb is a slog and challenging, especially on a hot 80 degree day. 2 gorgeous views of the surrounding Move Taina and rivers. Blue trail back down was gentle and easy. Near the exit is a small creek and swimming hole where we dove in along side 4 other families. Cool water was perfect after a long, sweaty climb.

This hike is truly a workout! The hike consisted primarily of rocky terrain. To an inexperienced hiker, I would categorize this as a hard trail due to the steep inclines and roughness of the path. Trekking poles or a wooden staff is highly recommended when completing this hike. Despite the difficult climb, the summit was absolutely breathtaking. Instant tranquility resided over me once I reached the summit. It was such a peaceful and calm place to be. However, my favorite part of the hike was the waterfalls on the blue trail. It was a refreshing delight! Tip: Start with the red trail and end with the blue trail.

great for kayaking

Went up the blue dot trail and came down the red dot trail. It was a very pleasant trail with many great scenic overlooks on the red dot trail and beautiful views on the blue dot trail by the creek. This was not a sunny day in July (7/25/2018). We had scattered showers now and then on the way up, but it was not a problem at all. We did stop under trees a few times when it rained hard, but with the yellow plastic bags covering heads and thick foliage above, we were pretty much dry, body and shoes. Rain also brought the benefits of the low traffic on this popular and usually crowded trail according to All Trails. The rocky path was well maintained and marked. Especially for the red dot path, it was precisely marked maybe due to the difficulties. We had a wonderful hike.

I hiked the J walk and South Park sections of this Trail. Came up at 7.5 with the Eastern Loop still to do. So I think this is actually more like 10 miles. The jaywalk is easy to moderate. The South Park though is more along the lines of moderate to difficult. It's heavy Rock Trails reminds me of the Appalachian trails in Pennsylvania. Some beautiful scenery and Midway through I found a surprise at one tree. I don't want to give away the surprise so you would have to see it for yourself. It's on the South Park Trail. All in all, this was a great hike and especially challenging since it is geared more toward mountain bikers which means that the path is not level like most hiking trails. Lots of ups and downs, and curvy pants. It annoyed me at first, but I actually quite enjoyed it toward the end.

one note and update though. They closed off the road at the southern intersection of the South Park Trail and jaywalk Trail. so there is no access to the spillway. It's a shame because it looks nice, and they built additional fencing to keep people out. I could have probably gone around it, but I didn't want to take a chance on poison ivy or something else going through open Woods and the plethora of no trespassing signs kept me from going further.

one thing that did bother me a little bit about this Trail was the limited amount of rest points. There are two benches one Midway and one toward the end. But the Trail is so narrow that it makes taking a quick stop along the trail for a drink or snack quite difficult.

overall, great Trail for a single or couple hiker. Might be more difficult in large groups due to the width of the trail.

3 parking spots, but come early as this hike tends to get very busy. Crowded, especially at the summit, a lot of dogs. Views are amazing, well worth the trip. Not a long hike, start with the red dot part to get the ascend over with. Coming down might be challenging as well in a different way, I had to get a wooden stick to take some pressure of my knees. Nice river and a little bridge at the bottom of the mountain on the crossing with the green trail. There is a porta potty and a ranger with maps in one of the parking spots

Great area to hike and fish

Very well marked, not crowded, nice view of the water. Highly recommended!

Quite a steep climb. If you have knee issues at all, definitely climb up the red dot and down the blue. Red dot is much steeper.

This is moderate to hard level to my opinion. Rocky steep uphill ascend with views that are awesome and definitely worth the effort. We went week day, not a holiday and there were lots of people on the trail and at the peak. Red Dot Trail is marked very well and goes up to the top. On the way down we took blue trail, also well marked, it's longer but less strenuous. Blue trail leads you to the small but very attractive waterfalls (one spot has a water hole, people were jumping in - fun and refreshing after a hike, next time I'm wearing my swim suit). In the description on All Trails it says that Red Dot Trail fitures a lake, well, not accurate info. Red Dot Trail can take you to the Sunfish Lake, but that wouldn't be 3.5 miles round trip. We didn't go to the Sunfish Lake as we had no time to do 7.5 miles, I also think it's best to do it separate.

WAYYY too many bugs. Only got a mile down before we couldn’t take it any longer and left. Will try again in the fall time.

It is a good trial did it with my family any bike works and it was a breeze but the kids had some trouble going up the hills

Very clean and scenic hike! Moderate if you take the blue trail but pretty water fall!

Love!! Went here because it’s close to my sisters in the city but still on the way from Chalfont area. Hike was a workout and kicked my butt! (In the best way of course). I loved that it was easy enough but harder than most of my go-to trails. Will definitely be returning :) watch for the little spiders that build their web right across the trails!
