Mountain biking

Easy, enjoyable trail along the river. Plenty of wildflowers and nice views. There were many people fly fishing, kayaking, trail running and birding. The pit toilets were clean and easy to find. I went on a Saturday but there was plenty of parking and and the trail wasn’t overcrowded.

The river was so pretty
Falls were somewhat underwhelming
The hike back was hard ! Good workout to climb up

This trail is a nice switch from our usual Hog Hollow hike! It’s quiet and you see very few other hikers on the trail. Watch for the bikes though!

We went while it was snowing... so a handful of places were icy. It was beautiful, very quiet and a fun adventure to start our day! It was marked very well. I can only imagine how beautiful it is during the fall!! We only did the big/little Lyon Falls. Then back to the cover bridge and down to hog hollow! Can’t wait to come back.

Very fun hike! My wife, 10-year old daughter and I really enjoyed the varied elevations and beautiful views of the river. I would say the hike was really more of a moderate level, but a great time nonetheless.

Awesome trail even during winter months, with friendly hikers and mountain bikers. A couple of well placed picnic tables to grab a snack. Probably moderate in difficulty.

Beautiful & scenic trail along the river.

Easy trail to the falls. Heavily used trail. Not sure I would call either one of the trails with the name sale of Falls ... a water fall. Barely a trickle at both.

awesome easy Trail run this Trail often. easy and very Scenic along the river.

The trail gave us a the distance and a little of the incline we were looking for. Some spots were not well marked and a long trek runs close to a highly traveled road so we heard the rush of traffic when we wanted to hear the calm of nature. We added a section of trail along a creek and got our nature fill and 8 miles in. It is a good trail and a good workout. We'll go back.

This was a beautiful hike! I do wish this park had some longer trails (my group wasn't ready to be done at the end of this one, so we did the gorge trail as well). The trails are very well-maintained and we all really enjoyed it.

beautiful trail.

Beautiful trail. It's not really a loop and I did 10.6 miles on it today starting at the campground checkin, to the Lyons Falls and then back. The maps along the trail are really helpful. You have to walk through the campground to get to the remainder of this route but it's definitely hilly, along the water, well marked. Great trip!

We love this trail. It's more challenging on one side where Lyon's Falls are, and we love the falls. We crossed the Covered Bridge and went back Pleasant Hill Trail because it is flat and easy after a long day of hiking Mohican. This time of year it is really muddy and slippery, but still very fun and beautiful.

I suggest staying at the Lodge one time when you come, but you're bound to stay a lot! After hiking we came back to the Lodge for a swim and sit in the sauna. Now it's time for dinner and drinks....perfect ending to a perfect day out here in Mohican.

This hike relies on about 4 miles of Mountain biking trail to make an actual loop. More moderate than hard, though there is Decent elevation.

The scenic out and back down the river (Hemlock Gorge) will still clock your 6 miles and offer much more to see.

For a true moderately difficult trail with plenty of elevation and scenic views, check out Hog Hollow and Lyons Falls trails!

Very good experience. Gorgeous waterfall and the trails are extremely well marked. Couple fun but tricky crossing of little water streams (traversing a fallen tree). Met a Ranger at the trail head and she was super nice and gave me a map and advice . Will definitely go back.

Went up the Mtn bike trail today - great view!

Only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because of heavy traffic. Great trail, with a stream crossing if water is high. The bottom of Big Lyons falls was frozen but only about a foot, just wasn't cold enough.

We had a good time on this trail. We started at Lyons Falls. It was fun to climb down the rocks a bit by the cave. This site stated it was 6.3 mile loop and it's point-to-point, so unfortunately we didn't really have enough time to to Hemlock Gorge. We decided to turn around at covered bridge and go to Hog's Hallow Trail. That was awesome as well.

Alright !

Walked the MTB 24 mile loop yesterday. Was gorgeous scenery and fairly quiet, with some road noise in the background for a couple of miles. Primarily had the trail to myself hiking. Saw three MTBers, and one trail runner.

It's a good challenging hike for the full 24. I started out around 10:30, made it to the covered bridge by 1:30 and stopped for lunch, then continued on the trail which follows the road then goes back into the woods on the right.

Like others have said, the last couple miles kick your butt. It was also a bit wetter there, with a ton of rocks and roots at the end.

Overall fantastic hike. Thinking about doing the loop again in the future, but would love to stop and see some of the other smaller trails that come off the MTB loop.

Great trail though used for mountain biking but plenty of room for hikers. Only did the short loop today but great view of nature!

Great trail and picnic area, bathrooms were clean but make sure you bring plenty of water and snacks.

Our family of 6 hiked the 3.2 mile Yellow bridle trail south of 97. Great, quick morning hike. Very nice trail, good elevation change and two creek crossings. Will come back for sure to try the other trails. Disappointed to see All Trails didn't have these trails on their map. My phone lost signal so was unable to track/map our course.

Great for me and my family
