Beautiful hike. Camped near Stanford house and spent the day exploring the different routes the Stanford trail took. Brandywine Falls was in full effect.

It’s a beast for trail running.

Great peaceful hike through a wooded area leading to one of the area waterfalls. Great nature trail

One of CVNP’s most popular hikes. Great for kids and kids at heart who like to climb around the ledges. Nice view from the top.

This trail was beautiful! Highly recommend for an early afternoon hike. Pretty easy and relaxing!

Beautiful trail, lots of steps and a big hill, but totally worth it. Its mileage is what it says, but you can take the cut off partway through if you don't want it to be as long.

combining ledges and Pine Trail make for a wonderful 5 mile hike. Ledges Trail is the centerpiece of Cuyahoga National Forest. although only 2 miles long be prepared to wander off-trail through the stunning rock formations along this Trail. Pine Trail is a 3-mile loop that showcases the deciduous trees and Lush plant life of Cuyahoga

Beautiful hike!

Great hike! The falls are beautiful!!

This is a beautiful trail to hike when there is snow on the ground. I went on a weekday so there were not many people around. Great place to take the family.

I found this trail kinda boring. On the upside, it is quiet (except for the people ...lots of traffic) and peaceful. On the downside I found it dark and uninteresting. It is an easy hike ...good if you want a fun adventure with grade school age kids, or a fun walk in the woods if you aren't really into hiking. Serious hikers will be disappointed.

This was the perfect trail for the first time hiker like myself. It got a little boring just past the halfway point but doing the entire loop without taking the shortcuts was well worth it. The climbs especially the one at the home stretch, were amazing, my legs & glutes got a great workout! Next time I'll pack bug spray and check out the scenery, the gullies and ravines looked very intriguing!

great Trail! up and down in the woods, definitely a moderate Trail. the views of the waterfall are amazing!

Great hike, some ups and downs through woods. Several great views of waterfall. Definitely moderate.

Went in the end of April and it was freezing but the waterfall was amazing!

Loved loved loved this trail! It was a fun place to explore and beautiful

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!

Park at the Pine Lane Trailhead. Definitely a workout (especially for people just getting back into hiking) on the outward segment of the Buckeye Trail. Be prepared to hike to the top of the ridge. I used the bridle trail to loop back around and hiked back in on the Buckeye Trail. Also be prepared to cross a section of the creek. It was shallow enough that my boots didn't get too wet, but I can imagine after a heavy rain it could get a little trickier to cross.

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

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.
