Nice trail through the woods. Some of it gets a little tight through the rhododendrons but it was very peaceful and relaxing. Boulder field was unique.

Mixed it up...looped fireline into Skyline then down to the railroad along the Lehigh River. 3 miles in all.

Great hike - about 1.5 hrs to complete. Moderately easy with nice views of the stream and some smaller falls

I just did a nice easy in and out section, from Rt 534 Hickory Run Trail to the D&L (Rail Road)

Definitely a unique experience climbing on the boulders. Fire roads made it easily accessible while staying in the park.

Very easy trail to hike, and great views at the final waterfall. River was nice to fly fish as well.
