Great day hike with pretty cool views of the delegate water gap!

Great hike with spectacular views and campsites.

Great day hike. A handful of scrambles but nothing daunting. Terrific views from the summit of southern and western NJ and Penn. Best to arrive early, especially on the weekend. Parking at the trail head proved to be the biggest challenge.

It was actually a pretty good hike, Did it for the first time with two of my buddies definitely recommended! A little disappointed that I didn’t finish the whole trail but did about 90% of it.

Such a good hike!!! Challenging, beautiful views.

Lovely trail, medium difficulty. Most of the trail goes through the woods, so it was okay to do on a hot June day. Met several thru-hikers on this segment.

One of my favorite hiking areas. Today we did our yearly Sunrise hike - started at 5:45 am up the Blue dot trail using headlamps. Walking alongside Dunfield creek we could hear the water rushing down the ravine. Shining a light on the water showed nothing but glowing white water below us. The trail was wet and we entered a fog before the top - our gear was soaked - and ice was dropping from the trees. We hit the top around 7 and had breakfast hoping the clouds would break - no such luck. Around 7:40 we headed down the Red trail. It was still cloudy, but it was bright enough to get to the bottom without headlamps. Back to the cars around 9:00 and headed home.

Me and my 9 year old son went up the red trail and down the blue trail. It was much harder than anticipated but we plan on returning to repeat the challenge! Unfortunately the day we went it was raining and the view at the top was covered in fog but it was still a great adventure!

Did this loop on 12/27/18. I hiked the Red trail first in order to get the toughest part of the hike behind me. The view from the top is impressive, especially on a clear day!

Fun, short trail with excellent views at the end. there was light snow on the trail which made the 2 steep sections a bit dangerous. Completed it with my 4 year old daughter who had a blast. I helped her down the 2 step sections, but she was able to go up them without assistance.

Really really easy trail but beautiful sight to see. lots of steps!

Great hike, the first part offers a nice set of switchbacks t get to the ridge. The view Friday from Big Schloss is awesome.

I hiked this trail last Spring and Fall of 2017. It was challenging but not too bad. Views throughout the hike are great including a nice waterfall at the bottom. I would definitely go back. It is a nice way to get friends or family into hiking. I saw people of all age levels out there. Trekking poles are highly recommended. Not too crowded on weekdays.

I definitely recommend this trail if you are in area. the first half mile or so is a steep incline but after that it's smooth sailing. great views of both Virginia and West Virginia. I only saw one or two other groups while on my hike. the parking lot was easy to find and there were restrooms (no sink though)

I’ve done this trail several times and it never gets old. The views are beautiful.

make sure you add the north trail to this one

It’s a hard rocky steep trail and my daughter (an experienced hiker who turns 6 in a month) completed it with me like a trooper. Fantastic day! It’s heavily marked so you never panic, red dots going up and blue dots going down. Amazing views on the way up of the mountains and landscapes, the trees are bare right now so the views opened up. Once you get down gorgeous waterfalls all along the trail. Will do this again!

More of a park and walk. The waterfall was pretty cool and had a HEAVY flow. The trail was “close,” but You could still see the Falls...and no one was around if you know what I mean.

Always a good challenge. We went in mid-November. Good idea to bring gloves for balancing your weight on rocks as you climb up the red trail. My hiking boots were great in the melted snow/slush and rocky terrain. Depending on the weather trail runner/sneakers might work but definitely not regular sneakers and don't even think about flip flops.

Such a great view! I completed the trail in October - it definitely has some muddy patches but overall is well marked and fairly well maintained. As far as the drive in goes, Canaan Loop Road (FR 13) is a loop. The trailhead is approximately halfway through the loop. The section of the loop that goes from Blackwater Falls to just before the trailhead requires four wheel drive. However, the section that begins on 32 in Canaan Heights is drivable with a car (mine is a Honda Accord) without four wheel drive, at least in the summer and fall.

Nice trail, pretty well marked and very rocky in spots. There were no really tough rock scrambles, and my 60 lb dog had no problems scaling the rocks. We met some friendly fellow hikers at the top and chatted a while, while enjoying some nice views of Mt Minsi and the Delaware River. The blue trail down was easier and an overall nice hike through the forest. There is a pretty creek and small waterfall at the bottom. For a shorter hike, this trail provided a very good workout. Hiking shoes are strongly recommended!

Nice trail, clearly marked and easy to follow. you'll have to cross the chain bridge and make a right into a small parking lot with a marker for the Appalachian trail. walk back across the bridge and cross the street at the end, this is the trail head. lots of gas stations on the way on close by.

As said in other comments the first mile or so its a steep rocky climb and will definitely be a good work out so come prepared to start strong. At the top of this section there is a spring and a little structure with a visitors log and a fire pit. continue on to see a sign that indicates the north trail heading to the right. this route is easy to walk and has beautiful views and plant life. This trail Continues past some radio towers and over the lehigh tunnel then loops back around to meet the white trail again. You can follow this back to the start and get some nice downhill sections you can run if your into that, although I don't recommend doing so unless you are experienced as it is dangerous and easy to hit a rock and fall while running. There were also a bunch of woodpeckers around this section.

For a more challenging route take the white trail first to hit those inclines instead.

I would defintely have a good sturdy pair of boots, this trail is very rocky in parts with a fair amount of loose rocks.

Definitely a must see when in West Virginia. Plenty of stairs that do get wet at times. The climb is worth it though.

Great walk but not an easy hike.

Very nice. Love it

did this counter clockwise , did this trail after minsi for mind the gap. I did prefer this trail only because it had more incline

Nice hike ... not difficult at all .. perfect if you’re looking for a short hike

Trail was very enjoyable but we only saw two blazes the entire time. It was easy to get off trail, I believe I would’ve gotten lost if it weren’t for All Trails.... also, the shelter is badly in need of some love

Excellent trail. Gorgeous views. Challenging, but by no means brutal.
