Easy trail. The falls are crowded in the summer. When you loop back, you see some nice boulders.

Great views! Recommend hiking boots. There are some rocky areas but my dog loved it!

Fun trail! I enjoyed the rock scrambling, it kept things interesting! Best view is at the section where the trail splits and you can either climb up the rocks or go down beside them. Go up!

Took the Orange trail up to the summit. My sister and I found it kinda difficult but we only go hiking once a month or so. Great views once your up there. Took the white and blue trail down and did a couple miles. White and blue were not hard. All the trails are very well marked!

Trail was in relatively good shape, and the vistas were stellar. Some sections are pretty steep, so be advised.

Wet rocks and leaves made it a little sketchy. But worth it! A lot of recent rain had the tiny creek roaring! Beautiful !

The trail was pretty wet on the lower section so make sure to have your waterproof hiking boots. This trail starts out easy but you do some climbing up and between rocks so I would say this is a little harder than easy. A nice trail to hike.

We were visiting Gettysburg and found this trail via AllTrails app. Was a great Spring hike.

The way I hiked, this was an out and back trail, not a loop. Followed temporary signs for Flat Rock Trail and parked in the upper lot by the horse area. The spur trail from the parking area to the rattlesnake trail is marked with blue ribbon. No indication where the trail joins the yellow blazed Rattlesnake Trail. Several other hikers were confused at this junction. Follow the yellow blazed trail, it winds in a circle until you find a sign pointing towards Flat Rock Trail. Lots of people on the trail on a Sunday afternoon in November but it didn’t feel overcrowded. Beautiful view from the top.

Beautiful mountain, peaceful and subtle. The trail is marked by white markers on the trees. Lots of rocks and boulders. After walking 3 miles in, we turned back because we didn't see where there would be a loop or a scenic view. Views can be seen past the trees. by 4:45pm, the parking lot was packed with vehicles, I'm assuming to see the sunset? not sure. We entered past the gates bridge.

Beautiful views on the blue trail! We got a little turned around at the white rock viewpoint but eventually found our way back to the trail. Would definitely hike this trail again!

A pretty casual hike. A bit busy sometimes. Kids loved it.

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.

Such a fun trail! Planned this as a surprise date for my boyfriend, who owns a rock climbing facility. Great opportunities for bouldering along this trail! We loved it!!!

Loved this hike! The trails were very well marked and signage was posted accordingly. I would rate this as moderate. I started off counter clockwise and found this helpful as I went up the rockier parts and did not have as many rocks going down. That being said it is still a rocky trail. Loved seeing chimney rock and wolf rock. I would definitely like to return.

Great hike clear markings
Got the hike in before the rain

Spectacular views of Cumberland Valley for only a moderate amount of work. Trails from Colonel Denning SP are well marked and maintained and easy enough for families and dogs. Extensions and loops provide adventure for the more adventure-seeking hiker. Kudos to builders of the nice new Flat Rock access trail at park trailhead.

Beautiful hike. Steep at the beginning and end, but not hard. Good portion of the hike is along the river/stream, a few stream crossings, and a nice view!

Short but steep. Great hike with cool views at the top. Just watch out for snakes

This place is fantastic, but a word to the wise--the initial bridge to the Blue Trail (the "moderate" one) is gone. I'm not sure why. This means that the only good way to get to the moderate trail is to start on the difficult Yellow Trail and walk/slide across one of the fallen log bridges. It's fun, but NOT easy, and I would not recommend taking small children until Spring 2019 or whenever they reinstate the bridge.

Went hiking here for the first time this weekend and I was definitely not disappointed! The hike itself is relatively easy. We went went left at the fork in the beginning of the trail onto the blue trail and took the AT back down. (I think the opposite way would be a more challenging uphill climb). The trail up to the viewpoint zig zagged up the mountain making it a more gentle, steady incline - but a work out nonetheless. But my Lord... those VIEWS!! When we made it to the top, I was speechless. Gorgeous panoramic views of all the treetops and as usual, pictures don't begin to do it justice. It was super windy and cold that day but we couldn't bring ourselves to climb down! Just wanted to stay and take it all in. It was pretty lightly trafficked. We only saw about 6-8 other hikers. (Another side note, the boulders at the top are sometimes decently spaced a part and can be a little intimidating if you're afraid of heights. But so worth it!)

We hiked the blue trail and it was a lovely hike!

Great hike. Loved some of the views. The markings could have been a lil better but over all would do this again.

Nice hike. Well maintained and labeled. The trail was muddy in some areas as expected after all of the rain the area has been getting. We took the Logger’s Trail (red) to Ivy and S. James (yellow) to Overlook Trail (red/black) to Logger’s Trail (red) to Virginia Pine (green). There were quite a few people on the trails. Our dogs enjoyed playing in the water. Lots of benches to sit and relax.

Started on AT where Means Hollow Rd intersects Ridge Rd. Hiked south 7 miles to Caledonia SP. This trail was widely varied along the ridge which made it quite pleasant, and south of Stillhouse Rd, in slightly lower areas, a wonderful 'tunnel' of overgrown Rhododendron impresses one along with abundant springs. Lower end of trail nearing Caledonia is very steep and difficult. I recommend a 2 car hike starting up north heading south due to that simple fact. Across the stream from the AT shelter in some ruins just above Caledonia, we saw a tree that had been abused by bear. It was scratched down through bark to the inner layer in a doormat sized display.

Some nice views and facilities. The trail is very well marked.

More difficult than I read. It was a workout but I’m happy I did the 4+ mile loop. Only views were through the trees. Many rocks across the top so I had to be careful. For this 66 year young man I don’t think I’ll do it again.

excellent trail to hike and have a little fun climbing the rocks . enjoy the rocks be a kid again.
