Beautiful trail with lots of cool spots for photos. Very challenging too especially after a rain the night before. Tou have to watch your every step. The waterfalls was indeed a treat.

Great local trail. lots of things to see, some challenging spots but miderate overall. The landscape of the forest is forever changed due to the winter storms...literally thousands of trees down. Great job NPS Trail Crew on clearing the trees from the trails!

I loved this trail!! So fun and exciting, lots of little obstacles to climb over, my dog loved it! I would however consider this a moderately difficult trail, can be slippery in some spots, especially near the waterfall parts

great hike

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.

Should be marked as moderate/difficult. In some spots it was challenging.

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.

love the water falls

Did the 7.5mile loop starting from the educational center going clockwise. Quite a few up and downs which made this trail a good workout but nothing I would consider in the difficult level. Nothing much to see other than a viewpoint and the waterfalls which are located on a short spur. The view is nothing spectacular but the waterfalls were very nice, especially with all the rain we've been getting. I imagine the falls get pretty busy given the shorter 3.5mi loop available. I did this hike during a rain storm and had the trails and falls mostly to myself on a mid morning Saturday.

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.

something for everyone.

Follow the trail along the Tobyhanna Creek and it’s beautiful. Hiked a day after a rain. The path was the usual root and rock trail with episodic slippery mud. Benches are placed at scenic overlooks on the creek.

Love this trail! Not nearly as long as you’d hope but still gorgeous. It’s been raining a lot recently so the falls were extra flowing! Side note- you have to go past the location it tells you- something “Pine Cabins” for sale. You want to enter the park there to actually walk. The location this app brings you to is the opposite side and you don’t get as much gorgeous views.

Beautiful trail and waterfall. Great for kids! But watch out where you step we had a rattlesnake on the trail 2 feet in front of us before we saw it.

I’m 72 years old and in excellent shape. AllTrails rates this hike as “easy” but my own observations mixed with comments I solicited from other hikers were: “challenging “, “dicey”, “treacherous” and “more moderate” . The path follows a rushing stream with falls and ponds. It’s beautiful but the path itself is often narrow, rock and root filled, and slippery. Hickory Run State park considers this hike the “most difficult “ in the park. Be cautious.

Had a great hike. Lots to see at every turn. some roots on the trails but no worries. Our dogs had no troubles either. We are marking this one as one of our favorites

Fun hike, not too challenging. Lots of cool sights.

Followed the yellow loop. A nice relatively easy trail. Was a bit wet from the rain so wear tevas or boots. Tons of places to hop in the water along the way. The back portion was a little over grown but they have cleared the area where the tornado was so the trail is cleared there.

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.

It was quick easy trail to get the blood flowing. Decent lookout points to the Tobyhanna Creek.

really pretty views following the stream. storm damage at top was mind blowing, how many large trees ripped out of the ground. lots of people swimming. glad we detoured on our way home! will definitely be back again!

Loved this trail. Follows the creek most of the time so you can see and hear the water much of the time. Several boulders along creek to lounge on to take in the views. Very peaceful and well maintained trails until you get toward the end where its a bit weedy. No bugs today at end of July. Nice little waterfall too. You do need to be nimble as some parts have tree roots, stones to navigate.

Quick hike! Very clean and dog friendly.

Walked about half a mile to the falls with kids. Loved it. Beautiful. Lots of limbs on the trail so I’m not sure whether this is great for trail running. Caveat: I am not a trail runner.

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.

Most enjoyable and a very easy hike

Hackers falls and the views from cliff park trail makes this a must do hike in the area. Not too difficult with not much elevation gain, so this is usually my go to hike when a friend or family member who doesnt hike much wants to join me. While the Raymond falls can get quite crowded, hackers trail and cliff park trail are usually quiet.

Great moderate trail with some steep inclines throughout. View of the falls and mountains are great. Very well marked. I’d recommend stopping by the PEEC (visitors center) as well.

Amazing place!! We really enjoyed it! We will be going back! Make sure to get there early, parking lot fills up really quick !!
