Great trail, lots of pretty views

A great hike through varied terrain. Outstanding for this area

I prefer this hike over MT Tammany mainly because it doesn't get nearly as crowded as Tammany and the views here are still amazing! Plus it's a little longer in distance which is nice. Perfect trail for beginning snow shoeing too!

It starts at a stone staircase up the waterfall a mile up it turns into a gravel type stone road with lots of colorful wildflowers there’s a vista overlook great for camping and continues 6 miles to wolf rocks kirkridge shelter a mile from 191 wolf rocks great for clearing out my head.

Great to accomplish something on a beautiful day, soaking in God’s amazing creation.

Good marked trail...did Coppermine-AT-Keiser Trail back to Copper.
steep climbs in spots and rocky..definitely a good hike/workout. Nice stream on the train for water if needed.

Beautiful area, and the falls were spectacular. A recent storm this year made a mess of the trees but fortunately the falls weren't really effected.

Hiked Fire Road up- it was empty, took AT down, a parade of hikers. Beautiful day though, clear sky, nice views of Mt. Tammany

Awesome. scenic views all along the way to the top

The terrain isn’t too rough but given the length of the hike, it can be challenging. The views make it worth it

Great hiking trail, some small inclines but
moderate enough for beginners. Gives a great view of the Delaware River!

Great scenic route definitely take the Appalachian Trail going up.. you can do Loop or stay on the AT...2nd time doing it...Added 3 miles of the AT to the Gas Line Cut out.

Very short hike, the falls are beautiful!

This was a great trail! I was looking for something consistently uphill as a challenge but am not quite ready for something as substantial as a short, steep climb. The milage to the top was spread out enough that it felt like a workout without making me weary of my abilities. A rocky portion towards the top was a little annoying but I wouldn't call it difficult. The trail was very easy to follow and wide enough for the pup and my friend and I to walk side by side most of the time. It took us a little under 4 hours. I am eager to return when the trees and whatnot are not bare. I also feel like going around sunfish pond would have been a good addition to the trail. Overall a great hike with good views, and a consistent challenge without being overwhelming.

Woke up at 2am to catch the sunrise, totally worth it! The hike up was challenging due to the snow but the view at the top was well worth it. The sunrise slowly turned the perfect view of mt minsi to a golden red making for a great photo op, highly reccomend this mountain.

I would not rate this trail as hard but moderate. It was a bit rocky in some spots especially near the top but a good uphill climb. The pond was really beautiful and peaceful and worth the uphill trek. Views from the campsites on the left before you get to the pond we’re beautiful as well. The waterfalls at the beginning and the end were also nice to see and hear.

Trail completely obliterated by downed trees. Literally HUNDREDS. You have to bushwhack a lot to get through.

Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

As of February 23, 2018 the NPS has closed Cliff Trail to protect nesting Falcons. It is expected to reopen in July or August.

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

Great hike! Nice views of mountains and waterfall. Recommended.

Beautiful hike after an overnight 6 inch snowfall. Great views, tranquil Eureka creek crossing, and beautiful rhododendrons. Moderate hike which took about 3 hours with multiple stops to admire views and take pictures. We took the fire road back due to slippery snow covered rocks.

difficult hiking, but we always made it worth it with apple pie before we went home.

Absolutely gorgeous in the winter.

This is easy training hike for me. I am from car and back under 1 hour. Nice mixed terrain.

Climbed Mt. Minsi yesterday. Great hike with what others have already described as... "...great views of the Delaware River and Mount Tammany!". It'll take around 3 hrs start to finish is definitely icy in spots this time of year.. Easy trail "overall".. Two thumbs up!

Great trail for unusual wildlife sighting.
