Hike near Zoar Map

Liked the elevation change, but it was just a walk through the woods.

Hiked part of the trail with a 3 and 5 year old. Made it in about a mile, just past the “cave.” Cool rock formations throughout. Would definitely like to get back here again ... cool hike.

We hiked this trail on a Saturday morning. The first two miles it was raining, the remainder it stopped. The trail was well kept. We only passed a few people on our way out ( near the ‘bear caves’). We opted to take the roadway back to the trail head as it was a wet mess. Our 4.5 year old son hiked the trail with no issues. I was a bit disappointed as it offered no scenery outside of your typical dense woods and it’s not a loop.

Beautiful trail! The bear caves were very neat to see. My only complaint was that it’s not a loop.

A nice trail, but at about the halfway point it got pretty muddy. Made the 2nd and 3rd mile pretty slow and and challenging. The 1000+ foot elevation change made the hike worthwhile. BTW the posted signs all call this the Bee-hunter trail and it was 6+ miles round trip.

Beautiful hike, walking through the water is fun but the rocks are slippery and the current gets strong at times so just be careful, but a great representation of the gorgeous upstate NY, waterfalls are picturesque! There’s a couple different trail heads, the directions through this app are reliable and the trail starts at the end of a dead end seasonal highway road so don’t be confused when the gps sends you to “unknown location” !

Very neat park to do some exploring around the several building size rock formations. Picnic area is available.

Nice area, with amazing rock formations! Could spend hours exploring the tight rock crevices. Does have admission fee, but well worth it. Friendly proprietors....visited on Mother’s Day and mothers were admitted free. As a side note: Bathrooms are clean and unique.

Love going here. It’s fun to see the sculptures and also a really good set of hills to walk.

we saw a Woodcock it was good and it was a little slippery I saw about thirty deer in all I wish we saw a black bear.

An absolutely beautiful day hike. Just be cautious because the trails need maintenance, there are a lot of fallen trees on the trails, which could prove an issue especially for kids. The white trail is pretty easy to navigate, but the section of the yellow trail after the ravine and deer lick falls gets sketchy because there is no actual trail because of debris. Hard to locate next marker due to circumventing fallen trees. My advice is bring a map and just stay alert for markers.

This is a great park. Great for fishing, camping, hiking, biking, pretty much anything outdoors. Most trails are marked or clear to see.

Beautiful forest trail. There was 12-18 inches of snow on the trail the day we did it, so really slow going. Covered in snow, it was hard in some places to figure out where the trail was. We've done this trail in the summer as well and the trail is easy to find when it's not covered in snow. Note that the trail is marked, both at the trailhead and on the trail markers, as the Beehunter trail. The full loop is also about 6.5 miles rather than 5.3.

Rode this in the summer. The last mile or two are smooth riding but it can get very technical from the beginning to avoid crashes due to the weathered trails.

Lot of tree's down, kind of difficult snowshoeing.

Great trail just need better markers.

There are 5 different colored marked trails that vary in distance. They are all easy to navigate and no hunting is allowed , so no worries during hunting season.

We walked this trail yesterday with our son and chihuahua. It had a nice elevation and loop around. It was a beautiful day and nice views of forest, but basically all the same view:)

Beautiful creek. Fun walking in the water

Definitely a moderate trail. My son (6y) and I are new to hiking, so we felt it was not hard but not easy. Very rocky and rooty.

Needs maintenance;trees down along some points of yellow trail and markings across creek not obvious. Others hiking said blue trail was full of "prickers"
BUT it's gorgeous shady terrain.

Beautiful scenery. We did it with 3 kids under 8 and they loved it.

There are some places you'll have to walk in the water so bring shoes for that and maybe a stick to help with balance in the slippery spots. Map to get there was confusing at the end; from Peter's Point Road, stay straight onto the dead end Forty Rd. when Peter's Point turns right. I had to backtrack to get to the trailhead.

This trail was challenging, but not much that it couldn't be enjoyed by beginners. the changing landscapes through the trail made this place really unique. We will definitely be back!

Great trail in a beautiful area of the park. Steep climb to start the trail with overall elevation gain for the first half of the trail, with the back half being primarily downhill. Very well defined trail, nearly impossible to get lost. Dirt trail, so it can be very muddy (and will be if it has rained within the past few days), which pushes the difficulty up. Highly recommended.

Make sure you don't rely on google maps to find it, we lost reception and never found it. We'll try again next year.

Solid hiking trail, several bikers as well. This is a moderate difficulty trail, not easy as listed. Well marked and defined. Can be mucky. One or two creeks to cross without bridges, so bring an extra pair of socks.

I loved this trail!!! The caves at the beginning were awesome and fun to climb on. The rest of the hike was tough but beautiful!
