Nice peaceful trail. Some cool sights, average trail. Pretty easy but still a good hike around. Around 40 degrees and raining on a Monday afternoon, didn’t see a soul.

Great changes in scenery. Boots required due to mud, horse poo, and small stream crossings. Great fall hike.

Called and talked with the ski resort and they said it was fine to hike through.

Trail is in good condition

Fun and beautiful trail run!

Easy trail. Combined plateau with oak hill to make it about 6 miles. Wide enough for two to walk side by side. Very quiet. Dry even after rain.

BEAUTIFUL trail. I went on a Saturday morning, expecting that it might be kind of busy. Much to my surprise, it was not. Very peaceful. The smell of the pines was an added bonus!

Flat, fairly boring.

First time going to Brandywine fall, and I wasn’t disappointed! Little crowded at the falls, but the loop is an easy trail. Many places to go off and explore the creek.

It was a very pretty trail. The only bad star I would give it is the parking. There is barley any parking for all the people that want to visit.

Pretty tough hike. But really fun and great scenery.

Trail not marked in one area you have to cross the river banks are about 5 feet high

The trail is basically nonexistent at this point but if you want a fairly simple adventure hike this might be a good one for you. Just follow (ie walk in) the tiny creek bed, depending on the time of year and rainfall it might be mostly dry or you might get wet feet. If its dry the falls won't really be falling more like trickling, but it's still a nice adventure hike.

This is a sad trail. Very eroded, very crowded. All the LNT-ignorant tourists. Beautiful falls, but trashed.

A good part of the trail is along a road. Once you head away from the road, very cool rocks and ledges. The pine forest is also beautiful. Perfect time to visit to see the fall colors!

Beautiful fall day to explore a new trail. Nice picnic area. Mostly easy.

Great for Cross Country Skiing, when snow is deep enough to cover the tree roots. One of my favorites for this in the winter. HIKING: is a labor on this loop, too many tree roots, you need to keep your eyes down all the time. It can be quite muddy during rainy times. Lots of shade.

I’m not an expert but I am not a novice hiker. This trail is extremely hilly, narrow and full of roots. You have to cross streams so wear boots

Part of the trail is impassable and I had to alter the route that was originally planned.

Beautiful trail to view the waterfall and autumn leaves. Very enjoyable hike!

Ledges was great as always. The Boston trail was great until it was near the road.

Nice, easy hike. Trail was well marked. Ravine was pretty. Ponds were nice. Otherwise, not much to write about. Would have given a 3.5 star if I could.
