Beautiful winter hike. We hiked early Saturday, just before the snow fell. It wasn’t too cold. It was a little muddy in some places but most of the mud froze over, so it made it easier to pass through. The trail isn’t marked very well when you get to the middle. But overall, it was a blast! Definitely recommend.

Great short hike. I went in January. Lots of ice. I was fine in hiking boots. My pup loved it.

Decent winter hike.

Beautiful trail, even on a muddy winter day, with several pretty features like a river, waterfall, and winding paths with some light scrabbling over streams.

Very cool

A nice hike along the water. A few inclines but a fairly easy hike. Beautiful views at the lighthouse and inside of it.

Muddy, but a great walk. I ended up extending the trail with a detour onto Garrett's Pass, and I practically had the trail to myself the whole way. I took the loop counterclockwise, which I highly recommend if your knees have issues going downhill.

Nice hike. I think I did the blue loop trail which is blue and orange much of the way. I started to the right of the pavilion. it was muddy early on. About mid way you have to cross the creek a few times. This would be difficult to do without getting your shoes under water. I took my shoes and socks off for 2 crossings I wouldn't have been able to do without getting my shoes wet so I was able to finish with dry socks and shoes. About 4 miles. Moderate uphill at the end. Rest of trail was not too difficult except trying to keep from getting my feet wet or muddy.

GPS takes you to the loading dock plenty of parking, but the trail starts a quarter of a mile away-- use the map

quite a bit of graffiti and trash sadly but we picked some up while passing, lovely view once you make it to the cave

Not much of a hike but if you are visiting the park this is a fun stop and a great overlook of the Chesapeake.

Great trail. But without this app I would of been lost. Sometimes the markings were sparse enough ( especially along the creek) that I thought I missed a marking. Trail criss crosses across a creek which can be very confusing. But, nonetheless I had a great time exploring the landscape.

We had a great hike as a family group!

From where i started it was easy to get to the falls, sign says cascade trail and it follows the brook all the way to the falls then continues to river rd.
The blue trail seems to cross itself a couple of times and that might cause some confusion.
I like to go off trail so I found old fire pits and foundations so this must have been a pretty good recreation area in the not too distant past.
I even found some old restroom foundations i suspect one was mens and the other women, posting pictures of them.
My phone died so i wasn't able to take more pictures or record my hike.

I loved it! it was my first "official" hike. this is a new hobby for me. my only thing was it wasn't staked out very well, so I'm pretty sure I walked the path a little extra than anticipated. lol

Wonderful scenery and decently well marked trails. just make sure you look up every so often to not miss the trail markers. We followed the yellow markers for a bit until we reached the train tracks and the open river. Almost missed the continuation of the trail that turns blue right after the white train track bridge. Many skinny portions to the trail and lots of rocks to climb up and around. Towards the end we got a little stuck and had to cross the creek to make it to the road. Overall the trail was a lot of fun with some sketchy parts that are a little slippery. Parking lot is a little small so be careful.

great hike. had a little difficulty finding the trail to begin with, but once we found it, all was great. took our dog too. great views from black rock overlook.

Nice trail for younger children.

The trail itself is very good. The loop runs adjacent to the river for a while and the waterfall section is beautiful and a great place to sit down and take in the scenery. However, the trail isn't marked too well and you can miss the route for the falls pretty easily. Overall though the trail is nice, easy, and family friendly (just watch the kids around the falls).

Beautiful trail. Had to cross a few streams but nothing to serious. Will definitely go back again. The waterfalls are breathtaking.

Nicely marked trails, good views of the water, a tad on the short side for hiking. But there are plenty of other activities available.

Great weather (Mid 50s and sunny) for November. Heavy rain the night before made some parts a little muddy but overall a nice easy to moderate hike with great views of the river.

Very nice views during fall time. Definitely recommended!

Great hike with pretty views of the Susquehanna River! Be sure to climb the rock above the cave for some spectacular views.

Wet rocks and leaves made it a little sketchy. But worth it! A lot of recent rain had the tiny creek roaring! Beautiful !

Great trail

Nice hike very dog friendly. Not marked well.

It’s tougher than you may expect but worth it! Also if you visit the day after a rain storm expect about 4-5 water crossings so bring a change of shoes for everyone!

Love this trail! Beautiful and fun!!!

Great Trail! Nice Views of the Bay!
