Great for all!

Good workout! A fit person should be able to reach the summit in 45 minutes. Many stretches are rocky and prohibit trail running. A good balance of terrain verity. Hiking poles come in handy.

Falls were astounding—amazing noise & power of water. Huge amount of work planking and railing the trail and the great views of the falls make it worth the cost. Fascinating to see the brown (tannins?) water on the main stream, but a clear one feeding it. Great diversity of mushrooms!

Great trail, but strenuous for rookies like me. First strenuous trail since becoming active again at 69. Took about three hours for 4.3 miles with 30 minute plus rest at top. First 1.8 miles moderate to easy, but last .5 miles is rocky and steep. Worth the climb with great views at the top.

Did this last weekend, great trail starts off very easy but will become more challenging the closer you get to the top. All kinds of Terrain , but definitely worth the hike and the view at the top!

A very nice trail with paths that are very fitting to the name. It was my first time hiking there and I absolutely loved it.

easy 5 and something km. easy to track the red labels on the trees. beautiful waterfalls across the path.

Beautiful view. It can get windy at the top but it’s refreshing after a long hike. I live pretty close to crowders so it’s great to drive up there and get in a good workout.

We went at a perfect time and i took some awesome pics so it was pretty cool!!

This is a nice trail for a decent weekend walk. The paths are wide to accommodate bikes, so it makes it nice for dogs and strollers as well. During the spring and summer you can find many species of wildflower, but be sure to bring sunglasses for the few portions of uncovered trail. Be sure to make a restroom break before hitting the trail if you’re walking as there really aren’t any places to stop until you hit Tyson park. Same goes for places to throw away doggie bags. If you’re coming from the Bearden area be sure to go all the way to the end so you can enjoy the UT gardens. During the summer their are so many flowers to check out.

The major downside of this trail is the high traffic and the smell for the 3rd creek. Once you pass university commons and the creek widens it can be a little depressing to see all the trash, but with all the conservation efforts perhaps it will be a little cleaner in the future.

Overall it was a relaxing walk and a great way to enjoy some nature in the city.

Had fun on this hike. It was challenging at some points. A lot of elevation changes at the first part. Be careful of slippery rocks on decents. Very nice fews off of the bluffs overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains.

Not too long has a decent mix of terrain...the View at the Pinnacle is great.

It rained off and on during our hike, and since it was raining today (and rained the previous day) there was lots of water flowing and very few people. Nice.

Yes, you have to pay for admission, but the boardwalks give you access to some otherwise inaccessible views inside the gorge. Lots of trees fell as a result of the nor’ easter last March. Privately owned Bushkill Falls is open and NPS Dingmans Falls and George W. Childs are both still closed.

Easy to hike with a dog or the whole family, part of the trail is a bit tricky to identify. Great hike beautiful views

Great hike for the entire family.

We are not overly fit (not out of shape, just average 53yo)...found this challenging but doable. Just over four miles round trip in just under three hours with several rest stops on the way up and a leisurely lunch at the top. Great hike on very well maintained trails!

Did this trail on a weekday in September and only saw a handful of people on it. Steady decline that didn't require too much hard pedaling and numerous places to take a break along with taking some incredible photos. I parked in Jim Thorpe and had someone drop me off at the White Haven trailhead , which worked to perfection. Looking forward to coming back.

Nice scenic walk with beautiful waterfalls along the trails. It is a little congested but was an enjoyable walk. A lot of great photo opportunities.

great

inaccurate title so giving it 3 star. Map depicts a loop combining *part* of east bluff trail and east bluff WOODS trail. check park map carefully. Be prepared, this area has paved areas and strenuous rock stair ascents.

Beautiful waterfalls, very easy hike. great for beginners and great scenic views. sucks you have to cough up 15 for it though...

Fun and challenging terrain. fun obstacle course of rocks towards the beginning and then a challenging asscent. Amazing views of Charlotte. Connects to a less challenging forest trail that is still very scenic in its own way.

Waterfalls are beautiful and the boardwalk give you a great view of them. There are different trail options depending on your skill/physical abilities. My son and I walked the red trail in 1.5 hours. The price is a bit steep as mentioned in other post but if you’re looking for something different to do, I would recommend it.

entry price was a little steep... easy enough to do with 3 and 5 year olds. beautiful waterfalls.

One of the best one

Easier trail that I thought it would be by the difficulty rating, but the steps close to the top were challenging! Good experience overall! This would be a great trail to bring a friend to talk with since it’s not too crazy of a hike!
