Hiking Map

Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

You can go up a steeper spot where it’s a climbing route. Really nice place to see a great view.

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

This is not easy. Wasn’t for me anyways. Was fun though

Wear hiking shoes, it’s rocky in many places. Beautiful lookouts over the river in the first 10 minutes of the hike. Staying left on the trail and taking it clockwise will take you along the high portion of the trail first and on the way back, following the loop, takes you lower along the river.

This is a great hike along the Appalachian Trail. Incredible views and a great workout. Check out my full write up that includes directions and things to look out for.

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

Great hike! Nice views of mountains and waterfall. Recommended.

Beautiful hike after an overnight 6 inch snowfall. Great views, tranquil Eureka creek crossing, and beautiful rhododendrons. Moderate hike which took about 3 hours with multiple stops to admire views and take pictures. We took the fire road back due to slippery snow covered rocks.

Great view at Hemlock Lake. But signs are not clear since then. We followed the false trail when we wanted to leave the lake and came back to the falls.

This is easy training hike for me. I am from car and back under 1 hour. Nice mixed terrain.

Climbed Mt. Minsi yesterday. Great hike with what others have already described as... "...great views of the Delaware River and Mount Tammany!". It'll take around 3 hrs start to finish is definitely icy in spots this time of year.. Easy trail "overall".. Two thumbs up!

Beautiful trail! Definitely would say this was moderate NOT easy. A large portion of the trail is unmarked and very rocky with lots of tree roots, etc. I stupidly started at the end of the trail and worked my way to the beginning. A large portion of it was uphill and there was parts that were a little strenuous. My dog had a blast but I wouldn’t recommend bringing small children unless your only looking at the overlook. If I brought my kid, they’d be complaining that their legs hurt the whole time.

Usually very busy with lots of people but the waterfalls are pretty. Very easy hike, great for kids, not great for strollers because there are some stairs to climb.

Great views from the top!

Views in the winter are much better, especially with snow providing a contrasting backdrop.

One of the best vistas I have seen in PA. Deffinitly a hike to check out. Nice and vigorous up hill as well.

Nice moderate hike to a great overlook of the area.

Nice hike along the AT with good views of Mt. Tammany and the Del River Gap. I would make this an out and back, coming back on the AT instead of the Fire road.

First time hiking this trail. Overall great hike. Not a lot of foot traffic and a nice hike. It’s a little icy out there at this time of year, so be sure to wear proper footwear.

Hard uphill but amazing view at the end makes up for it

Beautiful woods and views of the gap. Good moderate afternoon hike.

very happy with this trail. Very well marked trail. It started as orange/white blaze, to orange only, ending as orange/blue blaze mark trail. Very quiet, only saw two other hikers. The walk way down to the falls made a steep decent easier. The falls are beautiful! Straight back up the mountain to the top for some beautiful views. I watched a red tailed hawk sore for quite some time and spotted a grouping of cedar wax-wings! GORGEOUS birds. There were a few sitting benches which made resting very enjoyable. Highly recommend this trail. It is definitely a moderate rating considering the steep decent and accent to and from the falls.

Cute little easy trail

Loved this trail. I thought it was easy. Had a stairway down to the waterfall. There were about 10 feet that had a kind of scary dropoff, for me anyway, probably not for most people. It was really pretty and peaceful. We went on a weekday.

Nice hike, I did the loop around Hemlock Pond.

First 2 miles is all uphill! Keep going to get the view. Super quiet on the weekdays.
