Alert! Don’t hike during rifle season! The trails were swarming with rifle hunters and we weren’t aware and had no blaze orange. PA allows hunting in their parks.
Trail was well marked and had nice views.

Great trail! Went in the fall, very muddy and had some streams. Slight incline and declines but nothing kids and adults can’t handle. Great views of the river, with many opportunities for photos!

Went to see the fall foliage on 03 November, but majority of leaves had fallen (cold season starts earlier there). Still well worth it. Beautiful moss covered rocks line many portions of the trail. Eventually, you walk along some roaring mountain streams. Probably not an "easy" trail, but certainly not hard. Would recommend as a pleasant day hike.

Fun trail to hike. Nothing strenuous, but enough uphill sections to get you to break a sweat on a cool fall day. The Cascades did not disappoint. We went after a day of rain, so Meadow Run was flowing nicely. Flat Rock likewise was quite picturesque. And the hike along the edge of the Run down to the Slides was a treat (even if a bit of the trail was under water at the time forcing us to hop from rock to rock in sections). If you like the classic Laurel Highlands nature (hemlocks, ferns, Rhododendrons), you'll love this trail.

Love this trail. Spots are muddy, some hills and part of the path you walk over lots of rocks. Lots of things to see, definitely not a boring trail. Love the view from Wolf Rocks. Spots can be a little overgrown with thorn bushes and some spots you have to walk through mud so wear good boots.

Nice easy bike trail

I think this trail leans closer to “moderate” than “easy” in difficulty (ignoring the fact that it was covered in snow when I completed it). Most of the trail is narrow and rocky.

Nice hike with a few ruins from an earlier time. Really nice view about 1.5 miles in from trailhead. Trail climbs steeply at times to the ridge a lot of rock formations but limited views, possibly better when leaves are off. Trail follows the ridge before dropping down to the parking area. Purple blazes are hard to see at times, red blazes are more obvious, but the path is well worn and easy to follow.

Very clear and well kept trail. Incredible views from the top!

Due to all the recent rain, the trail has spots where the mud is unavoidable and where a river crossing means you're going to wet. I enjoyed the many tiny waterfalls and the tower yielded better views than expected. This was a fun little muddy nature walk.

Well marked trail with lots in a short hike. Waterfall, river, and great rock formations and springs.

EZ, but loose rocks covered in leaves. Watch for ankle rolls. I walked to Jonathan Run...very worth it. Then to the Gr Allegh Passage.

Started at Kentuck Campground (very close by). Trail was relatively muddy a d slick but well marked. The sections which are distant from the river are unremarkable. The portion along the river and Cucumber Falls make the trek worthwhile. I did the entire trail and cut through town, across the river on the Graet Allegheny Passage trail and got back on the trail to return to my campsite. That worked well but last mile was a lungbuster.

Got a little lost after reaching the view at the top. Followed the red-orange/lavender blazes. Brought me to Scenic Trail entrance, just a few hundred feet from where I parked at McCune trailhead.

Beautiful falls, easy short trail.

Great hike! As suggested begin by climbing the tower to see panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Then hike down into a valley crossed by multiple fast moving streams. Recent rains made these quite active and beautiful. They can be crossed with dry feet, but I would recommend hiking boots in general due to mud and water on the trail. There is an underground spring (indicated by a small sign) that bubbles to the surface near a downed tree. Fall light was fantastic. Most of the woods are stunted by the high altitude climate, letting more sunlight in for rhododendrons and Mountain Laurel. Lots of great Hemlocks close to the water. Even spotted a porcupine climbing a tree near the end of the loop.

If you start at lhht rt 30 trailhead it’s about 5 miles. Great scenery on the way to an amazing overlook.

Wolf rocks is a great place for a 2-3 hour loop trail hike and looking for a great view at the end of it! It’s perfect for a mild to moderate hike. Just be prepared to climb around on the large rocks at the end. Wear good footwear and be sure to have good footing! Nothing to catch you if you fall!

We hiked from the trailhead off Dinner Bell Rd. to the Cascades. Very nice walk, but some pretty steep sections. Hiking shoes are a must, as well as possibly a hiking stick. Check out the climbing rocks before the falls, then take the low trail at the bottom to the falls. It's a bit shorter.

I enjoyed this outing. It is an easy trail in the forest. There is a tower that you must climb, I believe it’s 7 flights up. The view is amazing. Today (early September) you could see the leaves beginning to change. I imagine it will be even better during the peak of Fall.

I advise those who are looking to not only do the loop but to also climb the look out tower to tackle the tower first. Beautiful / Breathtaking view(s) - make sure to take in the beauty and snap a few pictures while your at it.

The ‘loop’ is quite challenging. Wear sturdy shoes, your feet will thank you later. Wonder / scenic path that will show you its huge boulders / fields of ferns and streams for an individuals puppy(ies) to jump in / grab a drink of water.

Over all, a fantastic location.

We loved this hike! beautiful woods, rock formations and stream. having 2 little ones backpacked on us made it a little challenging but the loop to Cascades & flat Rock then back to parking lot was about 1.5 miles so definitely doable with the kids. We spent the whole day at the Cascades. there were great shallow pools for our 2 year old to splash in for hours!

1st half downhill, 2nd half uphill. Nice creek at at around 3 miles mark. Nothing special to see from the watch tower. The trial is rocky, muddy and not well marked. Not worth the drive.

this trail is part of the mid state trail. it follows along a riverbank with lots of amazing moss and different kinds of spiders. It was like a magical fairy land. My favorite hike the season by far! I followed this on to other sections of the mid state trail for a nice full day hike.

Beautiful river with browns and rainbows

I would rate this trail as moderate due to the steeper rocky section if you are headed to the natural water slides. You should definitely wear supportive shoes for this trail. And if you are hiking just for the slides, there is a parking lot right by them so you dont have to hike in.

I would say this is an easy to moderate hike. A very scenic trail between woods, waterfalls and rocks. Can get fairly crowded on summer weekends on Meadow Run. I would avoid attempting after rain as parts can be very muddy. Beautiful fall trail.

Really enjoyed the trail, felt longer than 5.4 miles but was a nice trail

LOVED IT!!!! Did the loop and it was a great challenge! Beautiful with lots of streams for my pups to get into to cool off and drink. Will be back!

this loop is actually about 7 miles, so account for that. if you save the high point for last, you'll be doing a significant amount of uphills, so bring water and good shoes. we couldn't figure out how to find the rock outcropping for a view and didnt have time to look around, as a thunderstorm started rolling in. nice trail though. peaceful, and a nice way to get in some distance.
