It’s so beautiful it too crowded I got a wonderful hike in and was able to watch wildlife and just take my time it’s a wonderful trail with cool bridges and beautiful streams

Good times, clean trails. Other than nature's presence no safety hazards. We'll be back!

Fairly easy hike, stopped on our way from MI to PA.

Overall an easy and scenic hike - not too much challenge here, but beautiful scenery. It can get crowded, so visit on a weekday if possible!

Very close to my home but had never done this trail till read awesome reviews on this app!
Fun trail varying terrain added to the fun ! We saw the sunset and it was a good satisfying workout
The falls are so pretty

one of our favorites to revisit & see how much water is up there. we find it easiest to hike thru the water once you go up where the mud catcher is

Probably one of my all time favorite trails. I spend so much time here. I love the wildlife. There’s owls. There’s ducks. There’s herons. This trail is amazing. Be aware that the bridge in back of Szalays is out so you have to take a little detour. This is my running trail as well. I wish I could give this place 6 stars. So many wonderful memories here

This trail is beautiful and so peaceful. The river sounds and looks beautiful. There’s lots of people on this trail. The views are gorgeous. I would watch where you’re walking though because there are lots of rocks sticking out of the ground. I will definitely return.

Nice trail, well groomed with moderate elevation changes.

only hiked about first half mile or so. a lot of the trail very muddy with some parts leaving trail to walk around standing water. we left because we going late but also because it was so muddy from run off. spring beauties, Colt's foot, and trout lilies are out. beautiful spring day.

Difficult to find a trail and I’m still not sure if the waterfall was dry or if I didn’t find it... cool path anyway :)

great but a little muddy.

good hike only hard part about it is the somewhat uneven terrain and some log/stream hopping but a beautiful waterfall. I'd like to see it when it's going full volume!

a little confusion with signage. we took "short loop" instead of "Boston trail". trail l is named "Boston run trail". this caused a double back and we didn't complete the "Boston run trail" for this reason.

A great hike that has some hills but beautiful scenery and views too!

I would've given a better rating if more than half the trail wasn't along a busy road. The last part of the trail was more peaceful. Relatively flat except for a downhill at the beginning and a nice short climb at the end.

Great hike! The falls were amazing and really enjoyed that it was a loop. Definitely start at Stanford house and go all the way to the falls!

I appreciate all the directions and the instructions on this site
We’ve done this park so many time s I didn t. Even know this trail existed and how to find it !!
Finally did It today .. best and the coolest hike ever ! Not to miss

great for hiking, biking, and walking the dog. Beautiful

Not too difficult. Lots of ups and downs. Nice hike.

Beautiful and relaxing with opportunity for hours of riding!

I live close to this trail. It is closed due to a renovation project that is underway now. There are three bridges that have been close for many years and deemed unsafe. These bridges will be removed and one new bridge built. They are removing trees now and re-routing the hiking route. You can still access the connector trail from the bike and hike to the tow path however.

My 2 daughters love this waterfall and the trek. They say “we are sisters. And the waterfalls are sisters.” Best to go after a heavy rain or during the spring. Summer is a bit dry. But still amazing. It is rather difficult. But my 5 and 7 year old didn’t really have a problem.

Brandywine Gorge Trail to Brandywine Falls. Only wish there was a viewing area for Falls from the floor of the gorge, walls may be too steep unless you follow the creek up for a quarter mile or so.

Beautiful hike. Muddy but fun!

Nice hike with hills and valleys. The trail was muddy for the most part but it is the end of winter and to be expected. Numerous hikers were on the trial as well so it must be pretty popular.

Was a little confused on how to get to the trail, but was very fun to hike and explore! Didn’t get far enough to see the waterfall but i guess that means i have to go back (:

I think the only way to enjoy this hike is after either a several week drought in the summer or weeks of below freezing in the dead of winter. The mid was really awful and it took us forever to finish due to all of the slipping and slopping. The best parts were that it is well marked, good ups and downs and of course Blue Hen Falls in the beginning.
