Great trail and really surprising that this is in the city. It's good for a leisurely walk, running, or biking. You can take smaller trails that are off of the main path if you want a more challenging hike.

Paved walking and biking trail. Nice views and relatively flat.

Family friendly trail, completed the 5 mile loop with a preK age child and an infant in a stroller.

Good place to walk, clean, safe. People are friendy.

Nice and lovely. Not difficult but can be slippery.

The trail is across the street from the parking lot. It’s an easy trail with a few short rock scrambles but again not challenging. I would not consider this a moderate hike. Definitely take the blue trail first as it is the only real incline on the whole hike and leads you straight to a really pretty river and waterfall. The trail gets a bit funky after that when looping back. The way back is very easy and the overlook is ok. Recommend for anyone looking for an easy hike.

lots of fun. make sure you take blue trail to see waterfall and lake!!!

You could walk and explore Longwood for hours and miles and still not see the entire place. If you're looking for something a little quieter, the meadow is filled with wildflowers and wild grasses and has a few miles of paths. They are well kept so you're not wading through tall grass. Not many people walk back behind the chimes tower, though that is another lovely place to stroll; a bit hilly, tons of huge old trees, secluded. Most of Longwood's paths are paved, aside from the meadow. You can really have a nice walk anywhere around the grounds and through the conservatory, just depends on whether you want to deal with tons of people. The best times to go for lighter crowds are first thing or last thing during their open hours, or try to visit on a weekday.

The Patriot Trail is a good fast walk/run with some nice steep climbs. The detour to the waterfall is steep and good for the quads although the waterfall is really a brook. We went on a Saturday and we had it all to ourselves. Due wear hiking boots the terrain is rocky and the leaves hide them quite often.

great hike! I only did the blue trail since my dog was getting tired but very pretty, scenic hike. I didn't think it was difficult at all, mt tammany was much more difficult. The waterfalls are beautiful and it only takes a mile in to see the view from the top of the rocks.

Didn't quite do the whole thing, but we loved it. Beautiful waterfall!

Absolutely gorgeous! Highly recommend for beginners

Great little hike. Great waterfall views!!

Great for a quick bike ride. Takes less than 1 hour to complete the 6.0 mile loop. the terrain is mostly flat with some gradule slopes and one slightly larger hill near the nature center. There are lots of people with dogs, people fishing, kayaking, running, biking, etc. This one takes the 5 stars not because of the difficulty, but because of the scenery and because is is very well maintained.

It is a very nice place to take your dogs and just have a nice day walking and playing. Highly recommend.

Love this loop

Excellent work out. The trail can become confusing as there are many trails that intersect with each other, so you need to keep your eyes on the trail markers or you could be heading down a different path. That happened to me, but it turned out ok as I was following the white trail, then I was on the pink trail that lead to the blue/white trail to lookout point. From there I followed the Blue and white trail to the Falls, a much easier access to the falls from the lookout point. From the falls you can either turn back to climb the rocks to continue towards the lake. From my perspective, climbing up would be much better than going down. Be careful climbing up as you may loss track of the trail, which I did, and had to go back down a bit to pick the trail back up. from there to the lake there are several more falls, which I'll go back later to photograph, before arriving at the lake. From their I ended up following another trail that took be back to the look out point, then following the blue/white trail, ended back at the trail head. Total miles was 2.9. I'll go back.

Good beginners trail. Enjoyed the walk. Three hours with nature!!!!

Great local hike with a pretty waterfall!

Great hike, devils pool is refreshing.....but rocks are very slippery! Hardly any restrooms though

nothing better for chill walk

absolutly beautiful

It is a good trial did it with my family any bike works and it was a breeze but the kids had some trouble going up the hills

Very clean and scenic hike! Moderate if you take the blue trail but pretty water fall!

Love!! Went here because it’s close to my sisters in the city but still on the way from Chalfont area. Hike was a workout and kicked my butt! (In the best way of course). I loved that it was easy enough but harder than most of my go-to trails. Will definitely be returning :) watch for the little spiders that build their web right across the trails!

Sometimes muddy, always beautiful

I love the paved trail around the lake. Plenty of docks to get out on the water. Trail is sometimes tight with high traffic walkers and bikers. Always beautiful photo opps. Decent nature hike trails weaving through the woods too. Plenty of geocaches to find. Be sure to check out the peace valley lavender farm across the street. They have a gift shop and lavender usually blooms in June.

Beautiful trail, especially in the Fall. This trail was super easy to walk and dog friendly! Marking were a little hard to follow. Definitely recommend!
