Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

Great trail. Short and an easy loop, but the inclines are nice and the few rock ledges are great for taking a rest and looking over the gorge. I take pups there AFTER we’ve gone for relatively long hike to cool off.

great trail and fun place to explore.

Clean, beautiful trail. Perfect in the fall.

Nice forrest surrounding. Very flat, lots of trail runners. Large parking area and restrooms. Caves currently closed for nesting bats. Great fall foliage views from overlook.

Recommend going after some rain! Falls were impressive after 3 days of rain. Large parking area and bathrooms at trail head.

Well marked trail to two great waterfalls. We went after a heavy rain and they were flowing! Expect to get your shoes a bit wet if its been raining crossing the stream. Dog friendly and they loved it! Partially paved to Blue Hen falls which is only about .25 miles from parking.

Of all of Cuyahoga Valley, this is one of my favorites ... the blue hen falls is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot and is not difficult ; to get to buttermilk is a more strenuous hike as its more of a natural path.

Quick and easy hike with great scenery.

One of my favorites. Lots of good elevation changes.

Great hike! Easily one of our top favorites in CVNP. A must see!!

Nice trail with great views! Marked wonderfully.

Fun trail! Very confusing to get to the falls but hike back was super easy! You do cross the creek and can be slippery, highly recommend waterproof hiking boots with great traction.

I enjoyed this route. we ended up hiking down the stream most of the way and made this a loop by finding a rdige trail that met up with the buckeye trail to get back to blue hen. was a lovely hike.

Easy hike! Great for an afternoon away!

Intense trail! Lots of hills and can be a bit muddy. Definently a workout. I started at the top of kendall hills and made my way down to the loop which is 3.15 miles. Tends to line the road a bit but the road isn't very busy. Recommend if you want a workout. Took me and my dog about an hour walking at a moderate pace. There is also a short cut to make it a bit shorter.

Go beyond the end of trail sign and check out buttermilk falls... The trail isn't hard but it's full of roots and several stream crossing but easy to find your way. So much fun and the dogs love it because they have to think as well. Worth the adventure

great hike.

Great trail that's not too crowded. When you park you might see a ton of people, but almost all of them are going to the gorge trail. If you have the willingness to climb a little you will be rewarded with a trail with very few people and lot of great views. Take care though that there are some spots where you hike pretty close to the edge of the rim and you really need to pay attention to avoid tripping over tree roots or rocks. The initial climb is steep but it is mostly stairs instead of an actual trail.

Good workout! Lots of great incline.

Beautiful views, not crowded in the AM. Took my 15 month on this, need a baby carrier but it was well worth it. No dogs allowed, you really get a taste of hocking hills and the grandeur of this area is on full display.

Like others have said, the markings were a little iffy at times, but overall it was a good trail. The parts that aren’t near the road are really peaceful and there was a great spot to stop & read for a while. I’d definitely do it again someday.
