nice long flat trail, tunnel is very cool to walk through, have a light if you want to see any detail inside the tunnel.

Unless you are over 60 and plan to walk, this is NOT the trail for you. A beautiful location and very flat, but a SERIOUS anti-bike and anti-dog vibe. Multiple signs about potentially banning the trail from dogs, and pulling the port-a-potties because people aren't picking up after their dogs. I get that people should clean-up after their dogs, but there are no garbage cans available for the waste or picnic garbage. Its a shame that such potential is being squandered.

great trail, well kept, but it is a workout. bring plenty of water.

Me and my Girlfriend just visited this trail over the weekend. It was something she found, sp we decided to have our first ever runaway together.
We are in our (young 40's). I have to say it's a work out. I like to say the first 200 to 300 step will kick your butt for some reason but after that it seemed easier.
Great views from on Top.
I recommend after completing the "Thousand Steps" to go a bit more.
you can take a Right to check out some of the Rocks on the side of the hill but if you take a Left and head down to the building on the trail "It was used to service the Train on the Railroad" continue pass the building heading up to "Look out 5" if I remember.
You will get to the very top and look over the Valley.
You can't miss it, There is an old Railroad tie in the ground.
This spot makes it worth the climb.
My girlfriend counted on the way down for our trail hike. 1,143 steps... So, if you do the Thousand... What's a few more steps..
You'll be hurting with or without the extra steps.
Cheers!

A nice 6 mile hike, water was high. Enjoyed doing this one with my son.

Beginning and end were difficult. The trail along the creek is very narrow. The drop off is straight down to the creek if you make a mis step.

Great single track that is well maintained. The full loop is a bit more than 20 miles not 13.8. There are some challenging rock gardens near the end by the Boy Scout camp. It may not seem like much, but with nearly 2000 feet of climbing already in, your legs are begging for mercy by the time you get to the roots and rocks of the last bit of trail. The high points are, crossing the dam in which you must put your bike on your shoulder and make your way across ankle to knee high water. Then, nearing the end you’ll run up against a challenging rock garden with massive boulders. You’ll ride from one boulder to the next to get to the finish. The trail will come out from the woods and ends at the highway. So you’ll ride down from there to the entrance of the park. I’d like to see better signs and indicators for the trails, other than that I loved it.

My boyfriend and I (age 30) heard great things about this trail, so we decided to check it out. It took us about 30 minutes to get the top, we saw a small black snake on the way up and one black snake on the way down. At the top there is a few overlooks with awesome views, as well as addiontal trails. One has an old cement building on that you can walk through. The trail is very dog and kid friendly.

10/10 trail run. 100% runnable. Rooty and craggy, be careful. Fell 1x and tripped 6x. Beautiful fern forest, diverse and well marked / cleared trail. Top views and rocks at the end. Be careful timber rattlers here at the rocks overlook please check your surroundings before taking in the views. If you choose to scramble on the rocks check hand and foot placements carefully. 4.4 miles minimal elevation change. Perfect perfect perfect.

did this while doing the standing stone trail, such a great workout with epic views at the top, ready to do again without the 30 pounds on my back :)

Nice, but not fantastic

Nice walking trail with two historic highway tunnels (being a flashlights)

My family rode part of this trail today. We started at the boat launch near the Boy Scout camp. We rode to the damn and then down to the water. The trail appeared to cross the water and go up the other side. We were with our 11 and 12 year olds and stopped to play in the water a bit and on the rocks at the base of the damn. We did not cross the stream and continue on the trail. It was a nice trail, mostly shaded. There were a few hills, nothing very steep. It was not very technical where we were. The path was wide most of the way. The trail from the top of the damn down to the stream was through tall grass. When we returned to the parking lot at the boat launch our children fished. They caught \blue gills and a couple of Perch. There is a small playground with swings and restrooms at the boat launch parking area.

Great workout! The walking sticks definitely helped. Nice breeze about halfway up. Loved the views.

Great morning hike to catch the fog over the Juniata River. It is possible to continue past the trail by a few miles. The extra distance was very uneventful. Would recommend only going to the building and back. The rest is boring...

The main trail by the river is nice and mostly flat. Nice scenery and easy. Rock Furnace trail is steeper and harder for biking but is very pretty. There are many mountain biking trails around the park that have really nice views from up on the hillside.

My husband and I have been trying different rail trails this summer. We are new to biking and so far this was on the top of the list. It's not difficult, it's shady and scenic. We're glad we tried it and will return.

This trail was an amazing workout! I would recommend that you be in moderate to great shape before you decide to tackle this. The view from the top...which was over 1100 steps..was amazing. This is a must do if you are an avid hiker and in the Huntington area!

beautiful overlook. watch for Timber rattlesnakes. can get muddy but still a favorite.

We make this hike yearly to picnic on the rocks. Gorgeous hike.

Absolutely loved this. not easy, but there were all sorts of people who did it. I don't recommend racing it, you will burn out quickly... believe me!! it's more than 1000 steps, but keep going and be sure to take the extra steps to the top of the lookout! I don't recommend taking young children, it's grueling.

You need to be physically prepared to do this trail

1000 steps for those who are active/in good shape will take you 30 minutes or less to ascend(30 to descend too). It’s definitely a good short adventure and can be done as a evening excursion in the summer. We drove two hours from York and finished by 8pm. The views at the top are decent to nice .

Great hike. Took about two hours at moderate pace. Make sure you have some water and hiking shoes preferable but sneakers are ok. Take a left at the loop to do more difficult section first. View worth the trip!

I grew up playing in these woods and on these trails and all my kids have enjoyed them as well. Easy hike, nothing harder than a few steep hills. Especially like the area we refer to as "the deep part". It's a stretch that's in between a few ridges and it is quieter and more heavily forested down through there. The entrance to "the deep part" is @ the top of the 12th St stairs and then take the trail past where the old pump was. Use and protect it, a very nice place.

I saw this hike and, having grown up in Pennsylvania, decided to do it. Stopping for breath about every 25 steps I finally made it. Once at the top it was fun to explore the brick "office" at the top of what was once the incline. Go to the right (east) a short distance along an evident trail to get your first expansive view of the mountainside. Then go to the left (west) to the best viewpoint all day and then further along to more views. I then continued to the summit and back just to explore. Once your legs are tired, be aware that it is also a long way down and plan accordingly. I would love to have seen this mining operation back in the day.

The Thousand Steps is a really intense , but kinda short trip. It was real work going up , but harder to go down , because your legs are shaking ! If you would like to extend the trip , there are trails that run out on the top. Theirs a trail that runs north for miles. Definitely worth checking out.

This is an easy trail from the trailhead to the waterfall. I've biked this several times. If you branch off to the Rock Furnace trail, it is a bit more challenging but both are beautiful.
