    Jennifer Cohn reviewed Groom Creek Loop Trail

    over 2 years ago

    Nice hike, somewhat challenging if you are not use to the higher elevations. I had fun, also note there is an outhouse at the high point of the hike (I love when they add outhouses to midpoints on hikes!). Rocky and steep incline, at least the route we took. Pretty good views all the way up and back down. Also be mindful of weather, it is much colder than the lower lying deserts due to higher elevation.

    More like difficult than moderate secondary to length, altitude, elevation gain, and temperature variations. Absolutely by far one of the best, most beautiful, and most memorable hikes I've been on. Hiking up you see a large variation in climate zones and foliage and the views are just phenomenal. Hope you're not scared of heights there are some precarious positions. The last portion you walk a thin trail on the side of a mountain and look straight down before finally being able to descend into chasm. Also try the outhouse up there, you can see over the edges of it down the side of the mountain.

    Pretty cool, kinda like a shorter Camelback without the throngs of tourists. It's tough, I try to stay in pretty good shape but I was definately huffing and puffing my way up. It's also a bit slippery and jagged so bring good shoes with good support.

    Meh, it's okay. It's pretty but I wasn't blown away. Good if you have young kids or those new to hiking. Easy ups and downs and just rocky enough to feel like a real hike. I hiked this to get a quick hike in the AM and get the juices flowing before it started pouring and it was enough to work up a sweat (I did have a 30l pack on with around 20npounds of water plus gear). Just be aware I saw a sign at the start of the hike on the bulletin board warning about being in mountain lion territory. So keep the little ones close if hiking with them and know what to do in case of encounter with a mountain lion.

    Pretty kick ass hike! Last half is Boulder climbing so definitely bring gloves. This is pretty difficulty but views at the end are great. I hiked lookout point and think the views are just as good though. Super challenging even for a seasoned Hiker. Also I don't think this is really a "quick" leg burner. Definitely the latter, not the former. I took my time and a few breaks and it took the better part of 2.5 hours to hike. Also the review says something about the parking lot being closed... It's open now though.

    This trail is beautiful. It's just incredible. Make sure to bring salty snacks electrolytes and plenty of water. Signs all over warning not to hike rim to rim in one day. Leave twice the amount of time to hike up out of the canyon as hike down into it. It was the hottest time of year when I went so I didn't hike more than a few miles in but it was great. I liked this trail better than south Kaibab it seemed to have a few less "mine fields" from the mules and be wider. The deeper you go the less tourists are there too which is nice.

    Jennifer Cohn reviewed Austin T. Blakeslee Natural Area (Highland Trail)

    Did some hiking here after a few days of rain... As long as you don't mind getting muddy you should be good to go. Also pay attention I'm pretty sure there are 2 red trails... An older one and a newer one... The older one has lots of tall grass and isn't very well kept... Tall grass=snakes.... I didn't see any but was waiting for it. I did some off trail too just a little bit to make things exciting. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here however it was closer than hawk mountain so I'll take it. Not bad, but after being spooled by Glen onoko and Ricketts Glen and the DE water gap I guess my standards have changed.

    Great views. I did the lookout (easy) trail and it had some wonderful views. I'm a busy grad student and so didn't have time to hike the red trail,but the red trail looked more challenging for an average fitness level to advanced fitness level hiker. There was a sign at the start of this trail saying it takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to hike. Also the map says at the northern viewpoint you could connect with the AT be mindful you'll have to pass the rock scrambling on the side of the mountain to reach it. I unfortunately didn't know this until I got back and spoke with a guide from their store. The other way to hook to the AT is from the red trail I believe. I plan on going back to hike some more... There's more than enough trails to keep one busy.

    Jennifer Cohn reviewed Shades of Death Trail- Hickory Run SP

    It was neat. I think I accidentally bushwacked part of it too. Pretty quick trail too me about 30-45 minutes. Quick stop on the way to Boulder field. Nice walking along the creek but bring good shoes as usual the rocks in PA are plentiful and there's no exception here, lots of tree roots to navigate around as well.

    Jennifer Cohn reviewed Boulder Field Trail

    about 3 years ago

    Very cool the field is neat. Make your way across the field to get to the trail behind it. Go straight across to the woods you'll see an opening and then the trail. Check out shades of death trail off the highway on the way there for a super quick but scenic trail. Only complaint I have about Boulder field is the poorly developed gravel road to get there. Not fun. But the trail was.

    Couldn't find it... Does anyone have any tips? The GPS brought me to 13 gameland down a poorly developed road and after 2 miles I decided to turn around and just go to Ricketts Glen.

    Beautiful trail. I took the red up, it was pretty challenging.. Some nice rock scrambles and the view at the top made it well worth it. I did the red down as well... Initially planning on blue down but as soon as I started walking down that way saw a giant black bear he was probably about 50ft away but I wasn't gonna take any chances so I calmly walked away and took the red trail. Seeing as I've never been face to face with a black bear before I felt it was safer to take the trail down without the bear.

    A short trail unfortunately mostly seems used by atvs. I've hiked and ran through the trail a couple times and have never seen anything but atvs oh and a snake. I'm not sure if it's rumor or not but my neighbor also told me she has seen wild dogs here too (she said coyotes but I'm not really sure if this area has coyotes) and so stopped going on the trail itself. Also it's not a well marked or we'll populated trail so be mindful of this when going. You can find the start of the trail behind the tennis courts at the park on front and epsy streets in Nanticoke. From there you'll go through some woods then a big paved area then take one of the openings in the field on the right. You'll go up a big open field with a gorgeous view. And then into the woods again. I've never completed the trail I've always gone out and back... Enough for an hour or so of trail running. I much prefer the Appalachian trail or rickets Glen but this trail is okay in a pinch.
