Tried this trail for the first time today and I loooved it! I definitely think the rating of moderate is appropriate. I would recommend starting on the left side as you really do get the more lackluster part of the trail out of the way. You’ll know when you find that magical part for sure! Definitely some tricky rocks and water crossings. I brought my dog but he became nervous about some of the climbs/crossings and I had to assist him. Overall I really enjoyed this hike and can’t wait to return!

Excellent trail. Varied terrain. Ill be back!

Nice loop trail with views. You can get down to the river and away from weekend crowds. Overall nice hike but not secluded.

Great trail, very challenging at times, watch out for the rattle snakes

This trail takes you around the old mill and by the Susquehanna River. It also takes you to a small man made waterfall that is truly beautiful.

Great views, snow was fun and ended up getting socked with rain but still had fun with dog. took us 3.5 hours

This was a fun hike with some good scenery. I kinda did it in two loops by accident. After coming back to my truck I figured out the part I missed and hiked that too. My recommendation is to start hike to left of mansion. Just go under pipe crossing up stairs and bear left. Historic walk to white land of promise. I'm pretty sure you'll walk by big tree other people have mentioned. It's big! From there follow rock run yellow and you get to walk along nice creek for a little. When you come to man made dam cross road to Wilkinson and grab the orange blaze ( left) from there. After that your on the trail according to app. This way you'll come down ( later) ridge trail red and that's a pretty good ascent.

Great trail. Well marked and maintained.

Lovely trail! So many different birds, well marked, a few icy spots but not impassable. Started off to the left as recommended, I agree that’s the better way to start. Going that direction, the first couple miles are pretty easy, can do in casual shoes. Once you turn left and head away from the river at the old bridge, trail gets more technical and I was glad to be in my boots.

Loved this trail! There was several points with some breath taking views. It involved a lot of moving around rocks and some climbing which I liked. Absolutely beautiful!

Amazing views.. heard a bear growl after pulpit rock which was scary.. long hike but well worth it.

Well marked,a bit icy but what do you expect for January! Fun hike!

Just hiked this today (mid-January) and the trail was stunning! A little icy at parts but nothing too bad. Definitely one of the coolest trails in the area with a wide variety of scenery.

Great view at the Pinnacle. Well worth the hike and some real neat ice formations tumbling down the stream from the reservoir at the end. Didn't see a whole lot of wildlife but given the weather conditions and the terrain my head was down most of the time.

Loved it ! Just went there today (January) and it was absolutely beautiful. The water was frozen and there was some breathtaking views. I’m pretty sure we ended up not taking an actual trail, but that could be just because it’s off season and the main entrance was closed so we had to goin through a side entrance. I brought my medium sized dogs, and they didn’t seem to have any trouble with the trail either. Pinnacle Overlook was definitely the highlight of the trail. Would definitely recommend !

Great views! Make sure to do the loop, it’s well worth it. Take a stroll down to blue rocks. It’s a little out of the way but you won’t be disappointed.

This has become one of my favorite hikes after doing it! The stream crossing is tricky to find but awesome when you do find it! If you have a dog joining you for the hike, he/she must be okay with water as they must swim across the creek! Trail is poorly marked in some areas and about 10 trees cover the path on part of the trail as well, but that was fun! I only had to use the AllTrails GPS a couple times. Very steep and rocky and just absolutely gorgeous! Cannot wait to do this trail again!!

Really nice hike with interesting views along the way. Historic canal lock, rhododendrons, waterfalls and a couple of high points with nice views, especially this time of year with most of the leaves off of the trees. Trail is also well marked.

Just gorgeous down along the run. I agree with the other reviews, start the hike by going left.

Great trail.... I will warn you though this trail is moderate to an avid hiker. It is definitely very challenging. And we did have to scale rocks to get to the top of the north lookout. We came in the opposite direction however meaning we started with the river of rocks trail and then climbed up the mountain to then climb up to the north lookout. All in all a very good hike.

Nice hike. Easy walking with some slight elevation changes. Great views of the high cliffs.

Great loop. Definitely take the way up through Pulpit Rock.

Great moderate trail! This place is well maintained by some group of people because I saw not one piece of trash on this whole trail!!! Hats off to whom ever you are! I absolutly loved this trail for a few reasons: this place is so quiet and far away from everything, you don’t hear a highway or construction or any man made industrial noises. The streams are pristine and I drank from all of them with no filtration because I am not a germaphobe. The trails itself is fun, lots of rocks to navigate through, many stream crossings while jopping across rocks, lots of trees and not many people go here. The sand spring was really neat.

started up furnace creek trail at 7am and didn't see anyone until pinnacle overlook. crowded trail on the way down. great views. well marked.

Awesome hike but our loop was only 8.4 miles and it was winter. Incredible views and a good workout on the AT Check out my full write up which includes directions and other things to look out for.


Great hike! But for a better more rewarding challenge start by going down in the valley and then come so that you end on top of hawk mountain.

Challenging with a variety of terrains

Absolutely amazing! Like others have said before go to the left to start. We went in November and it was still beautiful!
