To-Hike Map

First off I counted 36 stream crossings from the top of Roaring Run to the merger with Painted Rocks. Of these, 30 are not easy in Spring with snowmelt. So either go in Summer or bring waterproof boots.

Wear pants. There are fields of thorny vines on most trails with some areas overgrown. This was in mid March.

Otherwise I enjoyed the hike. Didn’t see anyone else.

The road to this trailhead was very poor. I tried to get it up two separate occasions. The first time I had to turn around because of snow and the second time I had to pull over in a field and walk the rest of the way because of mud. When I finally reached the trail it looked like most of the trees had been cut down and the few that were still standing were marked. There were lots of private property signs everywhere so we just turned around and went back. Not sure what was going on.

Great loop walking along the creek the entirety of the hike. Easy-moderate. Not much elevation change except at beginning/end, but there are a few squirrelly spots with slippery rock in narrow passages (pun intended). Definitely muddy and some points where our boots got wet from shallow running water down the hill.

Definitely the easiest state high peak I've completed, but a fun trail none the less. From the trailhead to the Mount Davis summit is only 0.9 miles and hardly any elevation gain, which makes it very accessible for any hiker. I ended up doing the entire loop which added a little bit more adventure to the hike. I wasn't expecting there to be snow and I was the only one who had done the hike since the snowfall so my trail running shoes were pretty wet by the end. The snow made it a little difficult to tell where the trail was at points but trees are well marked and the AllTrails app was very helpful. There are a couple creek crossings which were running pretty high and I had to find and throw a log down to cross one section, but that made it extra fun. Also saw three white tail deer cross the path about 30 yards ahead. Completed in 2h 14m.

A nice trail in an urban park. Some parts are surprisingly secluded from the city. However, the trail is very confusing and could use more signs for navigation.

It’s a nice little hike. Even with several inches of snow on the ground. It’s absolutely beautiful!

Did this a few summers ago. Great views, and great bears crossing the trail.

Clearly marked red blazed trail. Easy walk , until you come to where the trail takes you up the mountain to the Vistas. Sign says it's a 1 km hike up, I didn't track it, but, although not a long distance, it was a work out. It is a steep and fairly rocky climb to the top. Definitely wear proper footwear. Once to the top, you will be rewarded by beautiful views and it's WELL worth the climb. Wish, we would have had more time to continue along the trail past the throne room! However, I wouldn't rate the climb to the Vista as easy, but rather moderate- hard.

Good series of trails you can piece together in this area. Did the about a 10 mile hike all together in December and it was difficult due to snow and multiple stream crossings but a great hike for those that like a bit more of a challenge. Plan to revisit in the spring and when i don't have to worry about dunking my foot in freezing water! Have waterproof boots or plan to get your feet wet.

Beautiful rock formations, well kept trails. I can't wait to go back.

This was out first time on this trail and we were pleasantly surprised. The views are beautiful and the trail intices you to get close to the waters edge. I am looking forward to coming back when the sun is HOT, but even with the cool temps I worked up a sweat.

Nice easy hike after the initial rocky start. Better view and spirit than Beam Rocks.

Nice, mostly flat hike to a fantastic overlook. Roads to the trailhead parking lot are rough. I entered the GPS coordinates for the trailhead into my car's GPS, and it ended up taking me down a series of gravel roads until the road became someone's private driveway. I had to turn around and try a different direction until I was rerouted onto Laurel Summit Rd.

Loved the lookout tower.

Didn’t see a register...did I miss it? If not, wishing they had one to sign.

It was a serene hike and not very busy great view to hike to but be careful once you get to the rocks no safety net watch where you step lots of tree roots and rocks

Fantastic in and out hike. This is my go to option when I have a few hours on a weekend or something. The view from the rocks is beautiful year round and the actual hike is very doable. Long stretches of laurel and rhododendron tunnels. Long stretches of ferns which look beautiful in the fall when they change to yellow. Grab a book and head out for a few hours on the rocks, but be careful for rattler snakes in the colder months, they sun themselves on the rocks!

Did the entire loop about a week ago. Most of the trail is well-marked and very easy to follow and an overall a very easy hike with very limited elevation gain. The observation tower on the summit was a great addition and you are able to see panoramic views all around. There is a huge picnic area right next to the parking lot and the trail starts at the opposite end of it. Took around 3 hours to complete. Four stars because it was a bit muddy and trail was very tight or hard to follow at some points. Overall, a great day hike for all skill levels.

very rocky in places, but a great, relatively short hike. quite busy on Labor Day

Great trail! The loop is pretty rocky however, so be prepared to watch where your feet are falling, but the trail portion is well groomed and significantly less full of rocks, and the view at the overlook portion is absolutely fantastic, maybe one of the best overlooks in West PA and it blows away Beams Rocks for sure!

Great hike - went with kids (6 and 8 yr old) and they did great. If you are going with kids, recommend you go counter clock-wise (keep on wolf rocks trails and on the way back come thru wolf rocks loop). If you start out on wolf rocks loop, its a climb and would be difficult with younger kids.
Also while at Wolf Rocks keep an eye out for rattle snakes! You are in the wild and be alert!

I did this trail over the weekend it was very well marked, and easy to follow the loop. The trail itself is rocky in parts, but its nothing to rough at all mostly its a nice wide trail easy for anyone to hike. When you get to Wolf Rocks the view is nice and there are rocks you can climb on if you want to get a better vantage point. I would hike this again it was easy, fun, and worth the view.

Nice park. Trails are well kept. Lots of dogs enjoying the outdoors. The trails can get confusing though and what I thought was gong to be a couple miles of hiking ended up being 8 miles and thee hours.

I loved this trail! I would rate it as moderate rather than easy though. I parked at the beautiful picnic area and followed the High Point trail a short distance before taking a left onto Tub Mill, a right onto Timber Slide, right onto Shelter Rock Road, a left onto Shelter Rock Trail, then a right onto High Point which took me back to my car. If I remember correctly, the overlook tower is at the summit of Shelter Rock Trail. If you follow this loop, look for first yellow then red blazes that mark the trail as well as clearly posted trail signs. There were a couple areas where I wasn't sure which direction to turn, but if you use GPS or a screenshot of the map (which is what I did), you'll be fine. This trail goes downhill for the first half and uphill the second. It's also very rocky.

love the trail. Make sure to download a map before the start of your hike. there's a lot interlinking trails which could be a bit confusing. I come here with my boxador and make a pit stop at the dog park.
