Definitely start off to the left so you come up (for the second half of hike) through the glen. The glen is simply gorgeous.

This hike was BEAUTIFUL... One thing I would do differently is go to the left, if you're looking at the porta potties from the parking lot, instead of right and end with the more exciting part of the hike. It was such a nice day and took me about 3 hours to hike while taking a small rest and some pictures.

Good trails that are well marked. Me and friends branched out onto a neighboring trail to see a vista nearby but all in all it was a good hike with 2 Steve portions that only last for a few dozen meters. Overall quite nice. Low traffic too.

My friend and I learned the hard way to just go up and back the same way we came. The blazing were inconsistent... and we realized that the orange blazing that we were following originally was also used to mark the safety zone forbidding hunters. So we deviated from the actual trail quite a bit. Still a beautiful hike and we didn't mind getting lost, and we know what to look for next time.

One of my favorite go to hikes when I looking for somewhere challenging but doable in under 2 hrs! Trail running shoes with good traction are a must!

Great trail!

Love this trail. So beautiful walking along Kelly's Run.

Exceeded my expectations. The creek is really nice with some moderately technical rocky parts. I recommend adding the pinnacle overlook (orange trail) to add a nice view to your hike. Some parts are not well marked.

enjoyed it very much go left on the Blue trail to start it's a much better hike in my Opinion

Great trail. Combined it with a uphill hike to the Pinnacle with great views of the Susquehanna River. This makes it a circa 7 mile trail. Makes for a fantastic day out. Maps with the route are available in the Holtwood Park's parking lot.

I love this trail as my local go-to hike when I need a getaway and workout. I would probably rate it more difficult than the moderate definition given.
