Nice easy trail. I agree with Lexi below, we went with our two dogs and there must have been 100 people standing around in the falls. we couldn't even get close. Will try to go back off season.

Great views, the trail was more rocky than expected, trail is well marked for the most part. I was very happy to have this app as a guide. The trail is well maintained, easy walk. Perfect for a beginner.

This trail was fun, it rained the day before so it was a bit slippery when it came to the mud I suggest wearing boots in that case or have an extra pair of footwear in the car to change into because my sneakers and socks were muddy. There’s not that many views but the little views they did have we enjoyed and ate lunch.

Beautiful Trail with plenty of water and sights. Pretty busy and the trails are pretty tight.

This is a busy park, so all of the attractions are usually populated, but it is still a very cool place to take the family. Check out my full write up with directions and things to look out for.

Beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail. The trail was muddy after rainfall the day before. We were able to dip our feet in the water by the falls. It was crowded (we went at 11am on an August Sunday) and there was some empty bottles but overall a beautiful and relaxing hike. Definitely will do it again but earlier in the day to avoid the crowd.

Great hike with tons of amazing views! I did come across a bear with her two little cubs but they just walked on through. It’s a rocky trail but the elevation changes aren’t too drastic. I look forward to going back!

My family and I did the Indian Trail loop. It was a good trail and good for all ages. Rocky for most of the trail so at times we had to take it slow. There was a great view point half way through. I highly recommend. We parked in Parking Lot 2 but you can drive further past the paved parking lot to Lot 4.

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.

Similar to the other posts, this trail has everything. It gets crowded on the red dot trail and at Sunfish Pond, but other than that the trail is serene. I hiked the trail with both my dogs and took a long break at Sunfish Pond to recover. Camping is not allowed on Sunfish Pond, but there are two designated camping spots near it. If it's full, you can camp near the Appalachian Trail. I saw a few people camping there in the morning. Also keep your eyes out for rattlesnakes. I saw a very large one on the way back to the trailhead curled up in the middle of the trail!

great for small kids, easy to navigate. Main reason I would hesistate to return was it was crowded with people. if we return, I'll take a trash bag and pick up the litter that was strewn around.

Great local hike with a pretty waterfall!

Lots of little outlooks to view the falls and river. *Be advised, if you are using the NE extension of the PA Tpk, this is an EZ Pass only exit. I split the day up with a hike up Glen Onoko Falls, just a short drive down 209.

I went on this hike yesterday and I highly recommend it. It starts off with a moderate incline but doesn't get too intense as you keep going up. The views of the lake are really nice and there are a ton of blueberry and a few raspberry bushes by the middle of the trail that are currently in season which taste delicious! As a heads up there is a hornets nest close to the trail a little before you get to the lake so be aware of that.

Short hike to beautiful streams and a waterfall. Lots of folks complain that it is tricky. The only tricky part is the section between the upper and lower falls. You can avoid this portion though. Hike out and take the side trail on the right to the top of the waterfalls. Then double back to the main trail, take it all the way down to Mud Creek, turn right and follow the creek to the base of the falls. Easy Peasy. Go early to avoid crowds.

Nice easy walk to falls.

Not bad, easy trail To a nice pond for a pic nic

Not as great as the reviews say, the waterfall was weak and after the waterfall there’s pretty much nothing else to see for the remaining 5miles. It lacks any scenic views for a hike that climbs 1.3k feet. It’s too challenging for the amount of views on the trail, and the road leading up to the trail entrance is terrible. I will def not be going back.

The view at parking lot 2 is absolutely gorgeous, and it's the starting point of the loop if you follow the directions from the All Trails app. There is no Camelback loop trail actually. The loop contains the South Trail and a mile or so of road to get back to the parking lot. There are only signs for the South Trail. The route on the map is accurate. If you record your hike in the All Trails app, you can follow the GPS directions to complete the hike. We did it in July, and there were lots of bugs, I would recommend bringing bug spray.

Great views for an easy hike, not much elevation gain and its very gradual. Trail is extremely rocky though, which is expected on the AT, so wear sturdy hiking boots. September I believe is the busiest time of the year do to nesting and trail being overcrowded with birdwatchers.

Beautiful waterfall. Steep stairs to get to the top, one or two areas to rest on the way up. Our dog had a tough time with the stairs. Views of the falls from the top are nice. We planned to do a hike and went maybe 30 minutes past the falls before seeing a black bear on the trail ahead of us, just before the trail split into the loop, so we ended up heading back earlier than planned. It was busy around the falls but very quiet on the trail (this was a weekday — maybe it’s busier on weekends!) we didn’t pass any other hikers until we were almost back to the falls. Hope to try the full hike again soon! Trail seemed great.

the waterfall is nice
the hike itself is high effort, low reward

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

Hiked on a humid Sunday evening. The trail was empty with only a few people at the falls. The trail to the falls is easy, but getting to the pools below is definitely challenging. Not sure if there’s an easier way to get to the bottom. The water is very cold but refreshing and the scenery is fantastic.

Very easy hike to see a beautiful waterfall. However, this time of year there were a ton of people there swimming and blocking the path. Would go again later in the year.

Really easy trail. Hardest part was walking back up the hill to the car. I would not recommend going after it has rained. Definitely muddy near the bottom. Good for dogs and even kids.

Good workout but garbage views

Too busy for my liking, tons of people including a bunch of children running around. The hike was ok, though Crater lake was also very busy with people blasting music. Basically if you're looking for seclusion go elsewhere.
