Well marked trail and I just completed this loop based on the hints and directions given in the reviews. Trails are well maintained. Only thing, I clocked just under 12 miles for the entire loop.

Love this trail. Trails are well marked. Love the Blue Trail a lot... I followed the directions based on other reviewers. I started off where the blue and red trail meet. Took the blue trail which ended up on Perkiomen Trail. To make a complete loop of the reservoir, you need to take Perkiomen Trail followed by Red Trail. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It was my first time there and it was not difficult at all to follow the blazers. Trails are muddy at this time of the year with all the snow melting... I hiked it solo and didn't feel unsecure at any times.

This is a wonderful trail with various habitats! The trail rises and falls through hilltop meadows with fantastic views, meanders along wooded creeks and skirts around rolling forest. The steep climbs are hard but rewarding with the views you get of the Lehigh Valley. The north ridge is more secluded and offers a chance to be alone on the trail. Pack some snacks and have lunch at the new bridge that crosses Jordan Creek on the north section! Trexler Border Trail is a fanatic place to lay down some miles and see the beauties of Lehigh!

Good workout. I'd rate it between easy to moderate. some hills. scenic.

Poorly marked intersections left us guessing which way to go. Poor cell reception left us without trail map. Emerged from woods in someone’s back yard and rode roads back to start point. Trail was a fun ride until no trespassing signs.

Was fun. Gotta watch for the motorcycles, but you can usually hear'em coming. Lots of deer & wildlife in general.
Make sure to go after school hours OR when students are off. Behind a highschool.

2.5 miles hiking solo today! Solitude and spectacular nature are the best!❤️

Had a great 3 miles hiking with my sister. We saw a cute fox and along the trail we spotted cows and bisons (they must belong to the zoo). Totally enjoyed it!

Great mountain bike trail at the end of Tower Road off of 611.

Some very steep slopes. Beautiful scenery. Some signage not very well placed, easy to miss green trail if not paying attention.

Park is closed to the public Wed-Sat for firearm hunting until February. Pretty disappointing as this information was not on the website beforehand.

First off, I'd wager this trail is more of a moderate rating, just because of the distance involved.

Second, at least half of this trail is used heavily by horseback riders. I don't want to throw shade at them--horseback riders need decent trails too--but my experience anytime I take the dogs out on a shared path that horses take is that you will inevitably be slopping around in the mud and that was true of this trail.

The blue portion of the trail is the best and most scenic and if you do out and back you could end up doing around the same distance.

I'd prefer to do this one with my mountain bike or to skip the trail entirely and throw my kayak out on the lake for a leisurely afternoon.

love this place and come here all the time! parking can be tricky at times

awesome trail with various elements. Boulders, woods, and grass fields. A nice surprise for being in the center of the state.

Paved path with great lighting. If you’re new to the city like I was, this was an easily accessible running path with lights and lanes to make you feel safe! Definitely would like to do this again. Not traditional trails so you may be disappointed if you’re looking for dirt.

Perfect day for a hike here! We thought the trees would be completely naked and make some spots slippery when crossing creeks. We were surprised with some awesome views and ony a few slippery spots! We didn't get to go completely around the reservoir due to some time constraints but will be back to hit more trails around here!

great hiking trails very rough and Rocky. very hilly.

first time here with my wife and was a great intermediate trail. truth is we're roughly beginners and I did cherry pick the route but it still couldn't have been more perfect!

Good mix of trail. easy to moderate for kids. the jumps and obstacles make it fun for kids. good trails and I am going again

went for a 6.5 mile hike with a friend, amazing. we took the orange trail the whole time and there was a lot to see. very cool places to see along the river, easy/moderate path most of the way. saw old stone stairs, cool bridges. even though there was a decent amount of people there could still go awhile without seeing someone on the trail. very friendly people. only con, is the parking. really isn't a lot of parking here.

My 9 lbs dog and I are taking portions of the trail several times a week. Since I am familiar with the area I find places to park. the entire area is drop dead gorgeous. water, meadows, light flooded forest...we 've run into all kinds of wildlife even fox and one bear (a shy one). worth a trip.

I am amazed each time I come down to Wissahickon Park. The trails are endless. Each time I am down here I find a new path to explore.

Loved this trail! It has plenty of technical features, is a beautiful area, populated enough without over crowding, and when you get tired you can walk the flat gravel path home on the other side of the creek.
I would NOT rate this as easy though.... definitely moderate. We took our 9 and 11 year olds and they were fine but we watched over them very closely.

nice nature walk, very easy.

well kept. north ridge is a little overgrown but still usable. be prepared to push on a couple of uphills

This is actually made up of the blue and red trail with the blue trail being on the souther portion of the lake and the red trail to the north. The blue trail is beautiful as it goes right along the lake under a 95% tree coverage. Lots of grade changes and many exposed roots and rocks. One of our favorite trail running spots as it offers a higher difficulty while also providing an incredible view the entire way. The red trail is a little longer and is more gravel on a mostly exposed trail with not much in the way of a view. I didn’t care for the red trail as much to be honest but the blue trail is a gem.

Adequate for trail running, I ran through a bunch of spiderwebs but aside from that it was nice. As already mentioned, half is on paved roads. It was nice in the woodsy area!

Great riding
