Beautiful walk around tidal marsh. With lots of nature to observe. Very unique as you are near planes, trains, and automobiles! Can also see Philly skyline in the distance.

Wish trail was marked a little better. Backside of trail is dirt so can get a little muddy if it’s rained recently.

Fun trail for a walkabout - the foliage is so dense that you don't really get any "views" but that's not what its there for.

Wow what an amazing hike! Definitely recommend taking the red dot trail going up, as it takes 1300 feet elevation in 1.2 miles, which is very adrenaline pumping. Lots of rocks, but not too difficult to do.
And omg, what views from the top !
You get to see the gap and mount minsi and beyond.
If you want to soak in the beauty, go early, and choose less crowded days.
At the summit, don’t forget to go down the rocks little, it’s not visible from top, but that’s an experience u ought not miss.
Took the blue dot trail on descent, though equally rocky, it was a gradual one.
And there s a beautiful little cascade down that trail.
Hike takes 2.5 to 3.5 hours depending on ur time spent on photo ops.
Parking was overflowing when we came back by noon. So once again, go early.

On horseback. The trail is well marked. Rocky in some areas. Recommend shoes or hoof boots. Scenic. Meandering forest trails, stream crossings, open fields. Can hop off at the red covered bridge and picnic at the tables in the pavilion. There’s a place to tie horses up to. I parked at the North Appleton lot (Lot #3) and started out on the Green Trail which hooks up with Orange Loop at the covered bridge. Combo of Green and Orange trails this way made for a nice 2 hour trail ride.

I just returned from a very upsetting hike at Pulpit Rock. I can only hope the people involved will see this and choose to reach out, although I realize it's highly unlikely.

I reached the rock with my leashed dog to find a large group of people with about 10+ unleashed dogs. They all came circling back and forth around me and my pet and one dog began to growl and attacked my dog causing several lacerations on her face and eye area.

I should have stayed and gotten information from the people at fault, but I was far too upset, didn't want to risk further injury to my pet, and knew i had to make it down nearly 2 miles to take my dog to the vet. As a responsible pet owner, I am fed up with people's inability to follow the law and leash their pets on this trail.

Everyone thinks their dog is too well behaved to need a leash, but the rules are in place for a reason. I just incurred a hefty bill and nightmare afternoon that could have been avoided had this group of people simply kept their pets leashed.

The hike itself is wonderful, but the popularity of this site means there are many, many people there. Today it was my dog that was attacked, but next time it could be a person or child. Unfortunately, I no longer feel safe hiking this trail due to the entitled nature of those who frequent it.

If anyone was present today, please contact me at chaye405@gmail.com. I did not get any information from the people involved.

Love the temperature. 50°F. Did not like all the rocks. Tried to run down the hill and hurt my ankle. There were Many dogs, I love that! Good view at the top, but only trees and rocks everywhere else. Did not see any wild animals. Disappointed. Over all a good hike, though!

If you want to avoid the crowds, and get a parking spot, I suggest getting there early in the morning. Other than that the trail is perfect. Good for kids,adults and even pets!

Definitely recommended for families and friends. Moderate hike

kinda was worth the view but went after the rain and trail to the view very muddy wet.

The view was amazing but highly trafficked is an understatement. We went on one of the first nice days in April so I can understand why it was crowded but I personally like a hike with less people. I highly suggest wearing appropriate foot gear (I saw some people going up in sneakers and flip flops), there is a steep incline! If it’s your first trail it might be best to go another route.

Awesome views of Pennsylvania from the NJ side of the water gap. The trail can be rough in some places. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

Nice place.... lots of birds... nice walk... bring binoculars and bug spray! Boardwalk is nice too!

It’s a beautiful place to hike and enjoy the forest and view.

Went there on Columbus Day 2018... lots of cars there but saw NOBODY on the trail... very nice bonus! This place is beautiful with nice bathrooms and picking tables at visitors center... also maps are available at visitors center.... be sure to read all the rules and regulations as I did see the police patrolling the area which was nice!

Fun hike done this a few times, definitely get a leg burn going up with a great view at the top.

This was a great, quick hike! The perfect length and difficulty level. Like others recommended, I went up the red trail and down the blue trail which definitely seemed like the better option! It was a foggy, misty day but the clouds cleared just as I reached the summit. The views were absolutely breathtaking! On the way down the blue trail was super muddy and the gnats were pretty unbearable. If I stopped or looked up they would go straight for my ears and eyes. They attacked my neck pretty bad (swollen and itchy) but that’s really my only compliant. The rock scrambles were much more tame than I expected after reading reviews. My 12 pound dachshund was able to work through them without any help.

If you plan to do this hike on the weekend, even on a cloudy/rainy day GET THERE EARLY!! I came two weeks ago around 11am and couldn’t find a parking spot anywhere (even in the overflow lot) so I had to turn around and drive two hours home. Today I arrived at 8:40am and was surprised by how many cars were already in the primary lot. When I left around 11:30am all of the lots were full. And this was on a crappy weather day!

I can’t wait to come back when the weather is nice to do this trail again!

This is rated as easy however it is definitely a difficult. The terrain is non-stop rocks with steep inclines and declines and quite a few large fallen trees you can’t just hop over. This means it’s a great work-out but terrible for scenic hiking. You mine as well be on a rocky treadmill because all you can do is look at your feet in order to avoid hurting yourself. There are also a lot of mountain bikers and with the narrow paths there isn’t a great way to get out of their way which can be kind of scary.

not boone trail. simply a portion of it and of other trails. do not follow the blazes for the trail if you only plan on 4.4 miles. labeling this map boone trail is misleading and potentially dangerous, especially for people who spend their hikes looking at nature and not their phones.

excellent. well marked. fun, family levels for all.

Very enjoyable hike. On the easier side of moderate. Well maintained and marked with some very nice Chester County views

Good workout. Enjoyed the fog!

Cloudy, foggy day so visibility / views were pretty limited so I can't really comment on that. The trail was well maintained and marked. I would rate this as moderate with one small section with a decent incline. We took the AT up and the fire road back down. Wasn't too busy but that was probably due to the slightly rainy weather. Not one of my top hikes but I'll come back and check it out when the weather is better.

This hike does have great views, comparable to Pulpit Rock and the Pinnacle, did it counter to save the views for the 2nd half of the hike. Didnt see many hawks but it wasnt peak season being August (from what im told this place gets amusement park packed during peak season which is late September to early October). The river of rocks was really cool, especially from the view point. Some rock climbing here and there with lots of rock hoping, but this is expected in rocksylvania so make sure you have some sturdy boots. Alot of info available on the trail and in the vistors center regarding wildlife, geology and history. Main downfall is the 10 dollar entrance fee, to me thats pretty steep but at least it goes to a good cause being a sanctuary and all.

Did this trail in July, took Red Dot up and Dlue down. Trail requires some rock scrambling in spots which was fun and not dangerous. Beautiful views at the top.

Great local trail off the beaten path. We’ve done many times with the kids and particularly nice on a warm, sunny day with plenty of water in the creek portion to cool off. The meadow/field half of the loop is a basic (aka boring) walk, so we prefer parking at pinnacle point and doing a loop that catches most of the creek portion of Kelly’s Run.

done this trail often. sunset, mornings and afternoons. it was actually my first hike which really gave me a workout. but now it's not as hard after you go a couple times. I'm dying to make the sunrise one of these days. I took my dog for his first hike and he did good but towards the end he started limping. one of the rocks hurt his paw pad. so now before hikes I put a special cream to protect his paws. he loves hiking though, I went up to the lemon squeeze in NY and couldn't take him....he ignored me for 2days

Loved this trail! Beautiful scenery and good exercise. We really enjoyed overlooking the dam and then walking down to the shore. Trail was slightly muddy from all the rain but still very passable. Would definitely do it again!

This was a moderate trail, though it did get steep at a few points. The trail is pretty easy to follow and the optional waterfall detour is definitely worth it.

A nice and easy walk to the lighthouse- our dog loved running through the tall grass!

A muddy, flat buggy mess. Also, too many people patrolling the area.
You feel like you’re doing something wrong the whole time.

As for the rest of the park? Don’t do this. Don’t do that. Everywhere a sign!
