Nice moderate trail, parking is limited, the trail is along highways and parts of it could be rocky and there is three points with good views. Saw a couple of snakes on the trail, and moderate amount of mosquitoes.

rocky, pretty much ends just past radio tower with real nice overlook to left unless u want to continue on Appalachian trail.

muddy today but great hike

Awesome trail, very rocky so bring good boots and some walking sticks.

Great view, I did the whole loop, trail well marked. Not hard at all, pretty easy for beginners.I love it

Nice leisurely trail. Take the Appalachian Trail (white markers) up and back for optimal views and terrain.

We hiked about half the trail. It's often very close to the road and one section of it, surprisingly, is a road. I was upset and embarrassed because there is no forewarning that there will suddenly be motorized vehicles on the trail. This trail would be much more suited to mountain biking than hiking.

Overall very nice hike!! Continued on the blue (kaiser) trail... instead of the connector. The “blue” trail on this map was different then in the actual park - as you can see from my recording. Walked back on the road to the parking lot. Beautiful viewpoint at the top about 4 miles in (:

We parked on Old Mine Road at Coppermine, took Kaiser (Blue) at fork, Kaiser to AT (white) north bound to Rattlesnake Swamp (orange),then Mohican Road back to AT briefly, and finished up on Coppermine. Kaiser is rocky, but evens out before AT with good views of PA, at AT junction views on both sides, looking forever south and east. There are mind blowing overlooks southeast from AT, especially after you pass Mohican Lodge and continue up the AT to Rattle Snake Swamp Trail. Coppermine descending toward the Delaware is shaded and along a brook with small waterfalls. Look for the barred mineshaft on the uphill side mead the bridged stream crossings. This route was 9.4 miles with nearly 2000 ft of elevation gain.

Amazing hike!! Beautiful views and well worth it. From start when you get on the trail start in your left you will get a little of everything, flat , rocky , hill thru the woods and then you reach a steep view of the water gap. Make sure you wear hiking shoes as it’s very rocky terrain. I would definitely go back and do this trail again!!!

Nice trail for some nice views not a hard trail went up the AT and came back down the all trails route
