This trail hardly qualifies as a "hike" in my book but it is still a beautiful place to visit. Great for kids. A little upstream from the main fall is a small fall with a swimming hole. My kids could have splashed in it for hours. The only real downside in my opinion that it is too developed for my preference. It is a bit crowded.

Easy trail but very, very rocky. Don't do this trail if you don't enjoy hiking on rocks. Did run into a rattler as well. Did not see any other hikers and the trail is well maintained.

a magnificent place to escape from the busy life and enjoy what God has put here for us to enjoy.

Looking forward to using this app. More later.

Great trail, but be on the look out for rattlesnakes in the boulder fields. I ran into two, so I was a bit too paranoid to really enjoy myself.

Good family trail, great photography opportunities. Watch your step a bit & almost anyone of any age or skill level can easily handle the terrain.

Not groomed but lots of fun.

Great trail limited vistas few people. This is not a loop it’s out and back.

Had a wonderful hike along the ridge on a beautiful, chilly spring morning. would definitely return.

Short and easy. Steps down to falls. A few stopping points for photos. You’re able to easily go under the falls which is definitely a highlight.

Short hike ; Beautiful scenery ; The walk behind the falls is a MUST experience. Great for all ages!

It’s beautiful. The waterfall is nice. There are human made stairs to get down to and behind the waterfall. But could definitely be longer. Great for children and older adults.

This is the area to take people who don’t quite appreciate trails. It’s short, easy, and provides a lot of wow. This entire area is loved by countless volunteers continuously making this an area for everyone to enjoy. The waterfall is great and you can even safely walk behind it. Great for kids, adults, and pets.

Awesome hike, trail markers change from blue to yellow. We decided to make a loop with the Mid State Trail and that made for a much more challenging hike! Best hike I’ve done in PA so far!

Trail should be rated moderate. Generally flat. If you like climbing amongst the rocks this trail has them. Returned on the MST back to Pine Grove.

Beautiful place, nice overlooks, easy quick hike.
I had my four kids (7, 4, and twin 2 1/2 year olds) They had a great time!
Taking the trail behind the waterfall is worth doing

As of the time I write this review, the map shown above is incorrect. You can reach Tussey Mountain trail via Lonberger Path, which is a beautiful little hike/run in and of itself. Lonberger *does* connect to Kettle (other reviews notwithstanding) which provides a nice, relatively short but steep and intense segment between Lonberger and the relatively flat Tussey Mountain ridge trail. I've only ever run Tussey Mountain trail as an out and back, it's beautiful, Rocky but eminently runnable, which makes it one of the more fun and interesting running trails around. Total distance from the parking area to the beer tap via Lonberger and Kettle is close to 5.5 miles, making the whole out and back close to 11 miles. There's a trailhead for the Tussey Mountain trail with parking further up Bear Meadows Road, just beyond North Meadows Road and just before Treaster Kettle Road and the parking area for Bear Meadows Natural Area. The ascent to the ridge top is reasonable and interesting. Love this trail, and you probably will too, regardless of how you get to it. Enjoy!

Seriously beautiful and not a difficult climb at all. Steady incline with great views.

One of my favorite trails because of the low volume of hikers. I enjoy trails that are off the beaten path, and I don't encounter anybody while hiking. It makes for some excellent solitude in the wilderness. One of my favorites to do early in the year because Clark Run has more water flowing. This was my second time doing the entire loop. The first 3/4 miles are rigorous, as the trail elevates along the run, but it is well worth it. Going counterclockwise, the final ~1 mile is tough to traverse due to the rocks and boulders. Great views.

Nice trail. The beginning was a tough incline but it mellowed out. Good hike for a Sunday afternoon.

This trail is extremely over grown. There is no trail, it's all bush whacking. There is no trail, just trees and mud. Do NOT come here for a casual hike, you'll need to invest some good day light

Very nice hike with great uphill stretch to start, nice segment of mountain ridge trail and then a gradual descent trail to save your knees and close the loop. Did the whole loop on a nice Sunday afternoon and didn't see a single other hiker.

The steps at the beginning provide great cardio. There are a few spots for good views of you peek out between the dense foliage. Perfect distance for me for an after work hike.

This trail can be completed as a loop which totals 3 miles. From the parking lot, pass through the gate at the northeast end of the lot and turn right onto the Mid-State Trail. Follow this decent and cross over Rt 326 to the beginning of the Garlic Trail. At the top of this trail, turn right to follow an old logging road to Blankely Rd (gravel) and turn right. Hike a short distance to scenic vista then turn left and then right to join ATV trail. This section follows the ridge and ends up back at the parking lot. We loved this trail and would hike it again. We saw much wildlife including a wood turtle, an orange salamander, and a wild turkey hen with her six chicks.

Nice change in terrain. Beautiful scenery.

We tried to access the Tussey Mountain trail from the Kettle trail, which doesn't exist... so word to the wise, try and get onto it another way, Shingle trail is open. Out and back on the Tussey Mountain ridge had incredible views and an unbelievable amount of blueberry bushes. We will be back when they're ripe to eat along the hike. It was moderately strenuous, just due to the length, once you get to the ridge it's flat, easy walking. Beer tap was cool, but sadly, no beer was flowing.
