Did this hike last year. It’s a decent hike for the area. Good views and some rock scrambling. Does get crowded and I prefer more quiet hikes.

Definitely one of the best hikes I've ever done. Falls were amazing and scrambling up the rocks was a lot of fun.

Fun trail and beautiful views!

Great morning to get out!

AMAZING wish I lived closer. The falls are beautiful. Scrambling is a little tough but I was able to do it with my dog on a lead. Highly recommend.

Perfect hike if you only have a few hours but still want to exert a little effort. Nice views of the lake. Better marked than the last time I was there a few years ago.

FYI the park map lists this as 6 miles if you do the entire loop. Not sure where the 4.4 miles listed here came from.

**. Ok the mileage difference is because the trail shown here as Boone Trail is actually the Lenape Trail. The Boone is 6 miles and circles Hopewell Lake not Scott's.

Really pretty fall hike. Also relatively uncrowded even though it was a beautiful Sunday. I did the north trail, followed the AT a little ways further, and then went back to the parking lot via the south trail. I definitely wouldn't rate this as a hard hike, but the initial part was a nice little climb.

Gets a tad crowded during beautiful days

Solid hike! I did this loop in about 3 hours, we took our time looking at the falls/outlooks. The waterfalls are quite steep and can be slippery, hiking shoes are best. I would not suggest going down on the falls side! Some parts of the trail are not well marked, so pay close attention once you get to the top of the falls.

I love the difficulty and variety of the A loop- I think it’s one of the most challenging hikes in the DMV area. Pretty high trafficked route.

Wish they had a bike rental store in this location. Would really inspire people to experiment the great outdoors and spectate this extraordinary historical sight.

Fun Hike! Great for kids.

This trail is great. Very hilly though

very strenuous, but pleasant

Wow! Stunning yellows here right now. The falls are gorgeous, pictures don't do it justice. I'm so glad I took th loop clockwise like someone on this app suggested. It would have been much more difficult coming down on the falls side. I wouldn't suggest doing this in the rain as wet rock scrambling here could be dangerous. The overlook was awesome, don't miss this trail!

This was a fantastic hike. Very Scenic and very challenging. Highly recommended. if I were to do it again I would not take the back half of the loop though. Much better to stay along the falls and out along the ridge of the Gorge.

Not on a rainy day.

great view. we hiked up the stream and then some trails. little hills and a good workout.

Hiked the lighthouse trail(not to the actual lighthouse, that is at the end of the peninsula) which is roughly 2.5 miles. Easy hike, but nothing to write home about. Stay in trail, as hunters abound.

A great hike. I’ve waited a while to actually do this one because I always hear it’s just littered with people. Today it was pretty secluded and weather was good, plus we were in area. There are a lot of signs stating you’re going to die so there’s that. I 100% recommend a clockwise hike, starting with the falls trail first and coming down the steep side last. One thing I’ll point out, if you’re wearing the right gear and you don’t stand near the cliffs of the water falls and use good judgment, you’re not going to have a bad day. I can see why people get in trouble there, but they’re probably not experienced hikers. There are harder spots on the AT for sure.

Nice easy hike. 2 waterfalls about a quarter mile opposite each other from the parking area. Walk along the Lehigh Gorge River for a very.leisurely walk. Grandkids loved playing at the bottom of Buttermilk Falls. Gets busy on weekends with bikers coming down from White Haven during the summer. We go about once a month even during the winter and see something different evrrytime.

This was a great trail! Trail markers were crystal clear. My only disappointment was I didn't see any waterfalls (pictured in the trail description). But I'll definitely be back.

Started nice for the first hour but the last two were boring as hell and made it feel like it lasted days.

We parked up at the visitor center and walked the towpath to trail A. We did Trail A & C. Trail B is closed. Trail is A is a lot of climbing up and over rocks for 90% of the trail. I loved it. Ankles are a little sore but worth it. Follow the Blue blazes on trees/rocks. We began at 8:30 on a Saturday and it was very less people but it got much busier as day went on. Rocks can be slippery and sandy if it has rained. Be careful. Not a good trail for those who are timid or have knee issues.

Then we took the towpath to Trail C and that is a regular flat trail along the river. Easy to navigate.

River view is amazing and see it the whole way. Bring water and a snack if doing 2-3 trails.

Fun trail, many rocks to climb and great views.

This is a difficult hike up the falls, especially if it has rained the day before. Absolutely gorgeous falls as it has been a rainy summer. Plenty of places to get in trouble but well worth it. Go to the left trail loop to start as it is the most difficult. Enjoy!
