Awesome views,clear path,not a long hike but you will break a sweat.

Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

Great trail with amazing views. Agree with other reviews about it being a moderate trail. Stick to the trail and you'll be fine.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Not a hike for beginners but I definitely wouldn’t rate it hard. More like moderate. All the falls are absolutely breath taking. If you’re using your phone for pictures I recommend bringing a portable charger because you will need it with the amount of pictures you’ll take! You could easily get away with wearing sneakers. Just some parts are a little slippery and there’s still patches of snow and ice. But overall 10/10 will 100% be going again soon!

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

Nice loop trail with views. You can get down to the river and away from weekend crowds. Overall nice hike but not secluded.

Absolute breathtaking hike! Quite a challenge with most of this hike being rocky slopes. I like to do this backwards where you hike to the falls vs. seeing the falls first. Wear shoes with good grip and slip resistant. Get there early as it gets crowded, and dont forget your cameras!!!!

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.

If you’re going to do this one make sure you start early. Depending on your pace it may take up to 10 hours. You see a little of everything. Thankfully not a ton of rocks like Pa’s AT.

very difficult but absolutely worth it. We took the long way and hiked about 6 miles. lots of rock scrambling! would recommend to experienced hikers.

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

Great trail. I’ve done it three times since March has started. If you want more of a challenge take the trail counter clockwise starting with the blue dot trail and taking the red dot down. Much steeper inclines going up so it’s a nicer workout plus you get to see all the falls first and the hike down is much quicker after you summit

I very much enjoyed the loop trail. I did read previous reviews but was unprepared for the degree of boulder scrambling. Pushed me to my limit but slow and steady took the day. Met several nice people on the AT and passed the AT halfway point. Highly recommended.

Incline trail with steep sections and mostly rocky. If you have bad knees I wouldn’t recommend it. Great view once you get to the top.

Traction needed for much of the hike on the way up. The hike on the way up was very scenic along waterfalls, the hike down was incredibly boring logging path with no views and very wet.

This is a great hike along the Appalachian Trail. Incredible views and a great workout. Check out my full write up that includes directions and things to look out for.

The reservoir is a beautiful spot. Great wide open camping area.

Favorite NJ hike. Red dot has some rock scrambling towards the top and blue dot is very rocky to descend. Would recommend hiking boots not sneakers. Really fun hike

Rocky, steep in sections, but the view is worth the climb!

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

very wet this time of year be prepared to walk in 4-6 inches of water for a few miles . Feb 26. views do not disappoint. beautiful little series of falls at the bottom.

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!

Absolutely love this trail for the summer, the waters cold but worth the swim!

Definitely not for beginners but an amazing trail nonetheless with beautiful views.
