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.

Easy, level, and well cleared trail. Nice overlook tower near the high point. Enjoyed this hike with my husband and dog.

This trail was a water-loving dog’s paradise. Both my dogs played and cooled off in the numerous stream crossings. Make sure you wear waterproof boots or shoes, and I recommend long pants and plenty of bug spray. It was muddy in several areas but was truly a relaxing, easy and beautiful hike and the trail was easy to follow. We got there at 9:00 on a Saturday and did not encounter another person the entire time. I definitely will be returning to this trail with my dogs.

My favorite place for morning cardio! The Bradament trail is my favorite quick cardio route.

first of all this trail is not easy. second it is blazed with orange then yellow to go throne room outlook. it starts out on a driveable road until you reach the sign with an American flag which tells you that throne room is 1 km up the path and butler is 3.2 km. we did not get to go to butler due to time and trying to find this trail but the views off throne were rewarding. we frequently hike and it was quite difficult at times with the rocks. my fiance's dad 64 yrs was able to do it though.

This is a great trail. It is maintained extremely well. Vintondale to Nanty Glo is a challenge, but all tje other sections are great. I would recommend anyone on this trail.

10/10 trail run. 100% runnable. Rooty and craggy, be careful. Fell 1x and tripped 6x. Beautiful fern forest, diverse and well marked / cleared trail. Top views and rocks at the end. Be careful timber rattlers here at the rocks overlook please check your surroundings before taking in the views. If you choose to scramble on the rocks check hand and foot placements carefully. 4.4 miles minimal elevation change. Perfect perfect perfect.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. During our trip the trees provided a wonderful canopy from the rain and the hot summer sun for most of it. Great trail with some exciting challenges throughout.

Just hiked this today with my dog (4 month old lab). He loved it just as much as I did. Definitely recommend this trail for someone who’s looking for a beautiful hike with a slight challenge to it. One of the best in the area in my opinion!

We love this trail and have hiked it repeatedly. It's a lovely stream walk through lush foliage. Part of the fun is that the trail crisscrosses Roaring Run repeatedly. Like 25 times. If there has been rain, it may be difficult to remain dry-shod on a couple of the crossings. Take poles or grab a walking stick so you can balance on rocks and logs to cross. Download a map of the Roaring Run Natural Area so you can see the various parking options. Also, you can easily make this a loop by linking up with other trails you will see on the map. The Roaring Run Trail itself is not steep, but it is muddy and rocky in places. If you connect with other trails for a loop, there are some steeper bits as you climb out of the valley where the stream is. Avoid the Painter's Rock Trail out of the valley unless you want some serious hill climbing on a narrow, rocky, rarely used trail. In summer, long pants and insect repellent are strongly advised, as on any woodland trail in PA. If you access the trail from County Line Road, smaller kids can do the first part of this hike, but they will get wet, because why not? When they get tired, turn around and go back. You have to walk in a ways to get to the stream. Maybe half a mile? But then it's a stream walk all the way up the trail until you intersect the Hillside Trail at the head of the valley. Big happy water-loving dogs will be in heaven.

This isn’t an official trail but a random collection of different trails in the park so nothing is marked but it’s not terribly difficult to follow. Tracked it at 5.5 miles in 2 hrs.

Great trail, kids and dog loved it. Lots of rocks and tree roots to look out for, so I’d call this closer to moderate for less experienced hikers.

It's one of the prettiest trails I've been on in a long time. Covered bridge AND a waterfall. HOWEVER, it is NOT an easy tail, as it is rated in the app. Lots of rocks and roots, and because of its proximity to the river, the rocks and roots were wet and slippery. I'm 68 and was able to manage it, but if you have joint problems, be aware!

Great hike, lots of rocks and tree roots to keep you in your toes. A stop in the Grist mill is definitely a plus. I’m just sad that I didn’t do this hike sooner. I will definitely do it again.

Did the trail this morning with 4 kids 5 and under. All were able to make the whole trail walking on their own. It was definitely tricky in spots, and you have to be careful on the narrow spots. But it was absolutely beautiful. Multiple waterfalls along the way, interesting wildlife, and gorgeous scenery along the river the whole way. Definitely worth it!

Pretty little hike.. I just don’t agree with the easy rating. This trail, like most of the park, is pretty rocky. I’d recommend trail runners or boots if you have weak ankles.

Always enjoyable. Beautiful scenery.

This definitely is a great place to go to. Many trails to go to, awesome vistas, and being able to be on the top of Pennsylvania is pretty cool. I definitely got some amazing photos here. My only complaint—it is a bit difficult to navigate and find more things, but if you know where you’re going and what you’re doing, this would be an awesome place for you. Don’t go off trail, though—I came close to a timber rattlesnake.

Gorgeous scenery, hike loop is short but a good workout, easy to access, close to cities.
PLEASE NOTE - very dangerous, slippery rocks (hence the creek name) next to whitewater current creek. Respect the dangers and stay on the trail.

Pretty hike along the river and to the falls. 4 year old had no issues hiking as long as she held my hand on the wet rocks.

Great hike, like lots of others said, just watch your footing. My (newly) 4 year old hiked the whole trail, with me holding her hand for most of the uneven terrain but enough space for me to walk with her. My husband had our 2 year old in a backpack carrier. She did the flatter areas at the beginning and end by both bridges. Kids loved the little waterfalls and saw a newt.

Great hike. Took about two hours at moderate pace. Make sure you have some water and hiking shoes preferable but sneakers are ok. Take a left at the loop to do more difficult section first. View worth the trip!

Had a great hike on this trail, even stretched over to backend of Slippery Rock Gorge trail, another fun hike. This one has a nice trade off; while there are few uphill “pushes” one must be aware as it consistent in its embedded rocks and endless winding tree roots. Stay aware! But get yourself on this trail soon.

Low traffic and slippery routes. A good cardio for the weekend.
