Many thanks to Kelle Zimmer for recommending going in reverse! It was my first more challenging hike and glad I didn’t hit those hills on the 2nd half.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

Our favorite local day hike, we do it often. Just long enough but not too long. Can be muddy and difficult to follow the path

Nice trail. It's maintained fairly well and has nice views of the creek. You have to hop on the road for about a quarter mile, but besides that its enjoyable.

we walked from the boat launch to the damn. it was slightly difficult trying to figure out where the hiking trails even were at first. we went to the parking lot by the pool and she showed us a “hiking” trail but it’s i wouldn’t really call it a hike, it was more of a path to little areas to get to the water. still beautiful scenery but i was more excited to just hike. we eventually found another spot to park on the other side of the lake and had to go through the woods to find the boat launch where you can also rent kayaks and paddle boards which was pretty awesome. we saw horses as well! but the hike it self from that boat launch to the damn was lovely, just remember to be prepared to jump to the side at any moment as paths get very small at points and bikers are riding through as well!! wear comfy shoes , they don’t necessary need to be hiking shoes as there isn’t hills and it isn’t too rocky! 5/5 because i had fun and it was beautiful! also got to eat some raspberries off the bushes! (if you don’t know what it is... don’t eat it!)

Great trail. I was very impressed on how well the trail was marked.

Very pretty but quite muddy

As the other reviewers said, the trail is not well marked and it is very muddy. That being said, the hike is well worth the extra effort. The scenery is beautiful and the creek is full of fish and other wildlife.

What a gem! Loved the cross country feel of this run and the scenery is pristine!

Well kept trail, beautiful hike. Not very many markings, but the map I followed helped just fine!

best on cooler days as only small sections are tree covered.

The trail was poorly marked and it was extremely muddy. Scenery was pretty.

Great solstice Hike!

Didn't like the areas which were on the street. Good hike though.

Hiked today. Fairly easy to follow the yellow blazes - if in doubt head towards the creek. But was muddy on the SW side where all the horses had churned up the trail.

Not well marked at all... I got confused several spots. Was not easy to figure out where the trail is. From the parking lot, I went on the left hand side to start the loop, and the trail is beyond muddy, it is cakey mud... very slippery. The one good thing, going on the LHS from the parking lot, you get to play in the water... My dog loved it... if you take the right hand side, is not muddy at all, but since this is a loop, you will eventually come back to the mud... I will not go back due to the ill marked and not well maintained trails.

sometimes hard to follow; lots of elevation changes

Pretty good! I think the trail changed bc you can see a white arrow that gets blacked out, and an alternative route- so it may be different from the map outline shown on the app. From the stables, you follow the paved road for a bit, passing two yellow trail entrances, and finally hit a blue AND white entrance. Starts together, then separates

Easy trail for a day hike

This says dogs must be on leash but all I see in the pictures is dogs off leash??

Loved this trail! Being along the creek made the experience more special. There are areas that feel like walking through a fairy garden. A good balance of flat terrain with moderate climbing. Narrow path for most of the trail. There were piles of manure but they weren’t offensive. It did not detract from the experience at all. There are a good deal of exposed roots so you have to pay attention to your footing. This is hiking, not an easy stroll in the park. Be prepared for muddy areas with the natural springs that feed into Skippack Creek. There are bridges that cross the wider parts of the creek if you’re doing the full 4.7 loop. Trail is fairly well marked.

Good hiking, some deep incline keeps the variety. But the trail markers are very poorly kept. Pretty hike, spots by the water are gorgeous. Plenty of areas for rest and to refill on water.

Really nice walk. Couple of hills to go up and down (watch for roots). The map on this app DOES NOT match up with the actual white trail. With about a quarter left in the walk make sure to pull the app out and follow the red gps line (pretty much end up on the yellow trail).

Amazing trail and views.

Second time I did it. liked it better the 2nd time.

Blue trail from West boat launch
