This is a great trail in the fall with super foliage and good views of the bay. Be careful in the summer tho. Lots of mosquitoes!

Rugged but fun. Careful traversing this park as you could get lost if you don’t pay attention. My favorite place to hike !!

This trail has lots of ups and downs but I would rate it moderate. Beautiful trails and great views of the Bay.

Great trail through the state forest in Danby, NY. Well-marked trail through some lovely countryside.

Great Trail. Route: Love Run to Mid State to Panther Run. Definitely steep & difficult. Did part of this in summer, lots of mosquitoes. This weekend (9/29/18) was perfect...Cool & few mosquitoes. Panther Run trail from Mid State is straight down...be prepared.

The trailhead is no longer accessible. The road is now privately owned and the signs are threatening.

The Hickory Hills part of this hike is a 4-star hike. *However*, the actual Hickory Hills part of the trail is only 1.1 miles long. To get to it from the Discovery Center, you need to hike about 1.7 miles *each way*. So most of this hike is actually an out-and-back, not a loop. Adding the Lake View loop doesn't relieve the boredom - that loop is the ugliest trail near the Discovery Center. I'd recommend you drive to the Waterloo SRA Headquarters parking lot, where the actual Hickory Hills trail head is located, rather than hiking out and back from the Discovery Center parking lot. The out-and-back part, as part of the Waterloo-Pinckney, is a fine trail, just not fine enough to do twice in one morning. The trails were well maintained.

Hiked back in June 2018, and previously in 2013. Great trail, train bridge is fun to go on but sketchy if you are afraid of heights, something like 175' over the creek below

Nice 2 hour ish hike around the loop, there are a ton of trails connecting each other and it gets confusing because some of the yellow markings take you off the more worn paths which make it easy to miss. The trail is marked with different names, glad I took gps to double check route. Now to find out where all these other trails go....

Beautiful hike!

Excellent trail

Good test of fitness. Fun trail.

My daughter and I hiked this on a Saturday morning. The weather was a bit cool, so great for hiking and very few bugs. We hiked the A-B-C trails, which was about 13 miles.

A - 3.8 miles
B - 5.9 miles
C - 2.4 miles
D - 3.8 miles

The trail is marked every 1/2 mile, but we did miss a few markers because they can be a bit hard to see. The "points of interest" really weren't and we did not "see" any of them. The trails go up and down, and switchback often. Lots of roots and rocks. There is not much change to the trails.

There were plenty of mountain bikes. They can get going down the hills with limited visibility, so a couple of times they came up on us fast.

Beautiful trail with a variety of landscapes and views. Challenging with some of the inclines but overall a lovely hike. I tracked it, and it ended up being over 9 miles.

Also tracked it, closer to 10 miles.

Route: love run —> panther trail
Hard trail especially coming down! Enjoyed the experience overall. Trail is not well known and we were the only ones on the trail. Might do it again for the intensity of workout.

Did this one with my husband and 9y/o while visiting NY from Baltimore. Great little hike. We loved hiking through the stream. Trekking up the waterfalls was a great change from the hikes we usually do! We did not do the climb after we went behind the waterfall. It was very slippery and didn’t think it was safe for the kid to attempt it.

Beautiful hike I went beyond the top falls probably 6 more above the last is equally as tall I went 1/4 of the way up looks like you could reach the top climbing carefully takes about an hour

This is a really nice, short hike. The trail gets rough, in spots, on the backside as it descends to Boone Run. I think that this would be a great “introductory” hike for anyone unfamiliar with the topography that is characteristic of this area. Especially, with its proximity to both the Little Pine S.P. and Happy Acres camping areas. I’ll do this one again in mid April, hopefully there will be a more clear view of the park then!

We hiked the loop clockwise and clocked in at 23.5 miles. Great trail compared to the West loop. Well marked with only slight overgrowth. The up hill grinds are just that, with no switchbacks. Fortunetly the are relatively short. Not many campsites, but good areas are there to make one. Saw a Black bear at the start, a fox, pheasant, turkey and another bear. Came across a bog mile 21 and got our feet wet , no way around it. Would definitely do again and combine both loops.

My big sister and I hiked the trail today. What a great hike, up and down for work, and then a portion paralleling the creek at the bottom. I am From CA and hike in the San Gabriels or Los Padres and so, so very dry. Here, water, water, everywhere, nice change. Loved it.

Good overall trail with many rocks and roots with steep and long climbs with steep descents. Not for beginners but nice trail but be sure to bring lots of water and extra tires or patches .

This trail is gorgeous and is a little more of a workout which I liked. When you pull into the parking area take the gate furthest to your right, you walk that trail and will come to a Kennerdell trail sign, follow it. Eventually you will come to a fork with 3 paths but only 2 signs. One will say Iron Furnace Trail to your right and the center trail currently has no sign, you can follow that center trail to the overlook which is an easy hike. You can continue on to hike the Dennison run trail which is clearly marked by yellow on the trees. This is where you will encounter the declines, suspension bridges, and inclines. If you follow this trail it is a loop and will bring you back to the original fork with the 2 signs I mentioned. Torwards the end of the trail when the ground starts to level off you will come to a "T" to stay on the trail loop take a right. We hiked this with our dog and had no issues, we do hike regularly.

The Love Run portion of this hike is a stroll along an old logging road of gradually deteriorating quality as it meets up with the Mid State trail and climbs up through Hell Hollow. The Panther Run portion of this loop is far more exciting. Like most trails in this part of the state, it features one heck of a climb up to the top. There is a great view from the rocks at the top on Panther Run, but be very watchful through the rock formations as you begin the descent, I saw 5 Rattle Snakes in that area today-BIG ones! There is an active logging operation going on, right now, at the trail head. I had to do a little bushwhacking to avoid the heavy equipment at the end of the hike. I’ll do this one again.

great trail for a quick half-day hike. recommended for anyone just starting out or for a quick work out.

Hit a hive a ground bees on green trail off of this trail...very bad...just warning anyone who takes white trail to be careful they swarmed us and stung us

we brought our bikes. a little hard for my 5 year old... but we did go 3.39 miles! not paved, i think that was what made it the hardest. but so pretty and quiet. gasp... bugs, there were bugs outside. we survived, did not donate to much blood to the suckers. will for sure be back!
