Great hike with a nice picnic area at the top. Beautiful view of the river and very easy, strollable hike with the dogs. The first turn isn't marked, but other than that, it was a well marked trail

I've hiked this twice now, once starting at the route 534 trailhead, and at the Oakland dirt rd trailhead. if you are in a rush or don't want to hike far, go with the 534 start, but the much better way from a scenic standpoint and leaving the throngs of people behind is to follow the yellow orchard trail along the creek over to hawk falls via the back way. many great places to wade in and fantastic lunch rocks.

This trail is very easy it is about a mile down to the falls. I recommend bringing water because you could be at the falls for a while. I recommend this trail for all ages because kids like to play in the creek near the falls. If you come in the summer you can go swimming. Over all this is a great trail and the falls are beautiful.

my wife and I hike this trail a lot, mostly on the winter. Hardly used in winter but can get real busy in spring and summer . Best part of this trail is I can be on it in minutes because it's barely a 100 yard from my house.

Nice little hike that has a some nice views along the trail to an overlook of the Lehigh river. Definitely was able to see more during this time of year without leaves on the tree. Trail is relatively easy to follow in the snow and if you're looking for a short hike to get you out of the house this is right up your alley.

Short but pretty trail.

Way too crowded in the summer

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

Nice easy trail...joins into 2 trails if you want to add to the short trail. Crosses Hickory Run Trail and at the end it meet up with Fire Trail at the railroad tracks.

Nice relatively easy hike with a pretty view halfway through the loop. Saw a huge porcupine right off the trail so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife!

What a beautiful walk, easy for an old man like me with plenty of easy access to the falls. Most definitely will be back after the next heavy rain to check out the falls.

Love this trail. I am not very physically fit and I was able to complete it. It would be nice if the places to actually see the waterfall were marked. There are several locations where you can hear it, but you have to maneuver your way around lots of rocks to get a good view. It was nice to be able to get so close to it though.

Easy marked trail to the base of Hawk Falls. There are side trails throughout that are a bit rocky that can be shortcuts, but if you stick to the yellow marked trail you will get to the same spot.

love this trail and waterfall. it's quick and easy but the scenery is beautiful.

Great for kids, all ages.

Fun, easy hike with waterfalls

Great hike for young kids. It's out and back with a lovely waterfall at the turn point. The trail is pretty easy and has lots of opportunities to play in the water and scramble over rocks. My girls (ages 2 and 5) had a great time.

Nice short loop to get out in nature with a waterfall. Great for introducing dogs (or kids) to hiking and getting in the water.
