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.

Love this route. I do a winter hike here every year!

I like this trail and always extend it by taking the trail to Stanford House. The hike offers water views, the opportunity to get in the river, and when you head to Stanford House you go through a nice meadow as well. From Stanford House you can easily access the Tow Path and head down to Boston to hit the visitors center and park shop. I like to grab a snack and sit on the porch of the visitors center as a break before heading back.

This one always kicks my butt! Several hills and steps in this one, so if you’re looking for a cardio intensive hike, this is for you. Heavily used by trail runners as well.

Amazing hike!! So much to see and explore along this trail... you really get a bit of everything. Bring a camera with a nice lens and capture some great nature photos with the family!!! Can't wait to go back!

It’s so beautiful back in the trails, there are two, yellow and blue. The blue trail will take you right behind the tree line where the pond and trees meet. I go there multiple times a week!

Incredible hike. One of my favorite. Ice Box Cave was closed due to an initiative aiming to preserve the bats that inhabit the area. Saw many families and couples. Easy hike with incredible views.

Was a great trail. Some elevation areas but easy enough for my 4 1/2 grandson and with my dog to walk all of it. It was very crowded around the falls but that was to be expected for a holiday weekend. Would definitely recommend this trail.

easy to moderate trail. for major city park impressive. waterfalls nice size. we did the Stratton house and brandyhouse loop. less than two hours in total shade. recommendations good.

Great hike

Nice trail with woods, a few small waterfalls, and the deer lick ‘cave’. The directions take you to a wide shoulder where you can park. We parked at the Meadows Picnic area which is a more natural spot to start and finish.
Trail is well marked. Follow the red trail signs.
We went on a Sunday morning after an overnight rainstorm. It was muddy in some places. You have to keep you eyes on the trail as there was horse poop everywhere. There are 2 shallow stream crossings that you can navigate on rocks if needed. We maybe saw 10-12 other people, mostly runners. Some areas with mosquitoes, but nothing bad and we did not use bug spray.
The map shown on All Trails follows the bridle trail on the east side of the loop, which confused me for a minute until I zoomed in more on the map. Taking the marked deer lick trail the whole way clocked in at ~4 miles.
Overall my family enjoyed it.

I miss this trail. I now live in Florida and this was my go to running trail while I was living here. Great scenery and difficulty with the elevation changes.

My wife and I did this trail as our first hike. It was fun. The falls were beautiful. The difficulty seemed right on point for what was advertised. Would definitely repeat.

A beautiful peaceful place to have a nice walk with the family. Trails are very clean.

Great trail.

Fairly quiet until you get to the Falls loop.

Directions on the app take you to the Kendall Lake parking lot. It’s a 0.5 mile hike on the Kendall Lake loop to get to the Salt Run trail head. I showed us walking just shy of 5 miles total. You could park at the Pine Hollow lot and more easily access this trail.
Thankfully there were trail maps at the parking lot as the initial signs don’t tell you which way to go towards the Salt Run trail.
Overall, a nice hike through the woods. Nothing spectacular to see. Trail goes close to the road so there is traffic noise. Coolest thing we saw was a big beaver at Kendall Lake.

Mediocre hike. The falls are pretty in the fall!

Great family hike with serene waterfalls. Friendly trails.

A very easy and nice trail to hike on. It was nice and flat with no major hills. Great for running on. It was also quiet and desolate. Did not see any people on the trail and had a lot of options to go onto other trails. Highly recommend for an easy 2 mile hike that is peaceful and isolated.
