My first time running or being on the AT! Had to hike a little of the rocky steep section in that first mile. Great time, will go back again and go a bit further north on the AT!

Fun!
Red up, blue down.
Beautiful. Not for kids.
Strenuous red up with great views of river; moderate blue down with lovely waterfalls.

This was a great hike. Challenging at times but the views are worth the climb. Great views on the way down!

great views, but extremely busy. We went early and were able to beat the crowds a bit. I'd recommend going at sunrise instead of sunset to avoid glares in photos.

awesome hike, breathtaking views

This my was dogs first hike! She loved it! She was climbing up the rocks and had the biggest smile on her face with her tongue out :) It was beautiful to watch the sunset. Super easy, but climbing the higher parts was fun!

This trail is poorly marked so was difficult for a first timer (me). The reviews suggest that u can “drop down” into canyon at various places but you r still dropping down on slick rock or sand. The loop is better clockwise but the “junction” is not marked. Hard to find the clockwise trail; The cairns are only visible after you start dropping down the slick rock which normally isn’t my first choice. The climb back up - whether on sand or slick rock is pretty strenuous

Great hike, great view

loved this hike. beautiful veiws a good hike up. go early if you want to take pictures on the rock, it gets crowded fast.

great hike

A moderately challenging and well-maintained trail. While it’s billed as a lightly trafficked loop, there was a good amount of traffic on the trail. Not sure if this is always the case. I’m certain the first fall-like weather weekend of the year contributed to the number of people out there.

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.

Splendid slots, busy on a Saturday. We dropped into Peek-a-boo about half way up to avoid the rock face at the beginning. Went down and then came back and completed the whole slot. Hiked over to the top of Spooky and did it from the top down. Much easier this way

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!

Love this trail. Love getting the kids off their computers and just hiking. Friendly people on trail.

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.

Très impressionnant comme point de vue. Pas besoin de beaucoup de temps, se fait très bien.

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.

Very touristy but if you’re okay with that then it’s breath taking... I understand why it’s filled with tourist because it’s easy to access off a main road, easy hike for the whole family, and beautiful views!

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

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

Great hike! Good exercise, clean trails, friendly people. Plenty of parking at the entrance. It was not crowded the day we went, however, it was a bit foggy so once we made it to the top, there wasn't much you could see.

I would call it a walk than a hike, its too crowded and very touristy. It's nice but too crowded, got a feeling am in Niagara state park.

Hike will test a bit. Limited views of the valley below. Definitely recommend avoiding the weekend crowds.

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!

Amazing view! Slight overcast but still could see everything! Be patient with the parking because it can be a mess but once you get to the top it’ll be worth it!

Hiked all the way past Black Rock cliff to Pogo shelter and back. It's kind of ridiculous how many people hike this considering there isn't anything really special about this hike.

This was absolutely worth the 30 mile drive down a dirt road!!! I did this in July and it was sweltering hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water. The slot canyons are incredible. I can’t say enough good things about this!!

even in the rain it's worth the time

This was a perfect hike very close to Washington DC. A privately owned mountain is very well kept. As you arrive turn up the one way road and head to the the west view parking lot which is ample. There you will find the trail head going west at the circle to the east up the hill to the left. We chose the start going west and found the hike well marked and very rocky. The almost 6 mile hike with a stop at white rock overlook took us less than 3 hours but at times with some changes in elevations but nothing difficult. Great hike!
