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.

Very nice. Too short. Well maintained.

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

We take our dog down there all the time since it’s in our neighborhood. My sister took her senior pictures there too. Easy walk, would not recommend biking. Fun to play in the falls

Beautiful trail that my husband and I enjoy. Our dog was attacked here a few months ago by an off leash dog. No matter how much you trust your dog, PLEASE keep them on leash for everyone's protection!!!

Very easy trail. I highly recommend purchasing the booklet as it is filled with good historical information.

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.

Loved this short easy trail! We went a day after it rained so obviously it was muddy but that didn't stop us!

If you like history, this is a fine hike. If you prefer hiking in the woods rather than spending 70% of a day on asphalt, don’t bother with this. Gettysburg is what it is. The hike up to Big Roundtop was the highlight. The diesel fumes from the tour buses was the low point. Thanks to this app, at least we didn’t get lost.

A lot of history. Very nice trail. We did this with a Boyscout troop. As part of earning the Gettysburg patch set.

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.

Very well kept and wonderful for even the youngest child! My children love balancing on the logs lining the trail and playing in the creek.

A good, long walk through the battlefield. I used the map on my AllTrails app to supplement the trail guide, and missed a few things. My favorite parts were following Pickett's Charge across the field to Cemetery Ridge, and of course, Little Round Top. The section along Confederate Ave was quieter and less crowded than the other parts of the walk. .

The recent trail revamp is great. They did a LOT of work rebuilding the bridges and securing water-side paths. A quick hike and great for jogging. Perfect for exploring families.

Great little hike! Extremely beautiful especially today since it was a rainy day the water was really flowing. Was very very muddy though. So many cute little waterfall areas! The big waterfall is pretty big and was flowing! Very pretty! Love it!

Great, little hike! It can be crowded, especially on a nice day. It can also get a little muddy after a rain or snow. It was beautiful, though, and we had a lot of fun! I wish it was longer!

Bridges are all renovated and fixed. Muddy but great for kids. Little crowded at points but overall a good hike and close to Pittsburgh.

Lots of history. Easy walking.

Nice mostly paved trek. A small area goes into high grass with a narrow path. It’s optional but be aware of ticks if you choose to take this route. I opted out because it was very muddy and I didn’t have bug spray with me. Be sure to venture to the top of the PA monument to get a great view of the battlefield.

Took this trail every year as a kid on our annual trip with the Boy Scouts every April. Would like to go back and do it again soon as it has been years. I will agree with a previous review about taking plenty of water

Fantastic hike. Blazed perfectly. If you get lost your a moron.

Park is closed during construction. 30 min drive to get here so pretty disappointed. Hope this stops someone else. :)

Very pretty and stroller friendly trail. It's long but it's easy so it's great for small children to do sections of it.
