One of my favorite places in stokes state forest. Beautiful views of the gorge. The rocks that lead down to the creek are deceptively slippery.

Yellow trail is the best.

Short hike but enjoyable. Nice scenery .

Came here with Boy Scouts and I really enjoyed the views!

Great place to hike from in Delaware Gap. Open during winter when the national park is closed. It has a great hike down to the falls. Trails are well marked and maps with details at the center for nature lovers. Watch for the markings - you can lose your way just following the paths. Several different hikes to take once you park at the center. Spent all day and loved it.

I was following the signs to Buttermilk Falls but there was a gate across the road near the cemetery. I parked there and walked up to these falls. They are only about a quarter mile in from there and an easy hike.

Nice hike with my son for his eight birthday. We parked at Culver's Gap lot and walked along Sunrise Mountain Road to Coursen Trail (blue). Took Stony Brook Trail (brown) to the AT (white) and back down to the parking.

I recorded this loop to be a little more than 6.25 miles. Some very rocky and wet areas to maneuver around. A few small waterfalls. Great views along the AT.

I parked in the Culver's Gap lot to start this loop because I didn't want to walk across Route 206. Went up the AT for a few miles to the Brown/Red Trail. Then took the Red Trail all the way to Stony Lake. The rest of the loop is mostly on paved roads and a portion of Route 206 which is a very busy road. I avoided a section of 206 by taking part of Lackner Trail and an unmarked path past a small pond. I would likely avoid the paved portion if I took this loop again and instead take the Blue Trail near Stony Lake back to Sunrise Mountain Road and the parking area.
Some nice views along the AT. This hike will take around 6 hours depending on how long you rest.

Most of this trail is on paved or muddy hunting roads. I was getting bored until I headed off the main trail and up to a vista near the AT. With the detour it was around 7 miles of mostly easy flat terrain.
