Nice park, safe, nothing exciting just read maps prior to hiking.

On The Rocks (OTR) 50k & 33.3k:
Ran the OTR Trail Runs event using almost all of this trail. The OTR is a circuitous loop course. I wanted to do the 50k (three loops), but opted for the 33.3k (two loops). No waypoints or photos.

What a race! Did it in 90+ heat, which is take-down heat on a course like this — a super rocky, Grand-Canyon-style course guaranteed to roll your ankles 3 or more times.

Given the cutoff time for the 50k and the rocky harshness of the course, I’d say this is not for beginners, and is geared for skilled ultra runners. Even if you are skilled, there’s a high risk for falls, ankle rolls, sprains, and DNFs. It’s listed as having 4-1/2 climbs per loop — trust me, it has more climbs than that, and the elevation profile is my witness.

I plan to return to run this course on my own terms, for training and sport. It’s a toughy, but a great trail to train on for hard runs such as this one.

did this with 2 preschoolers and a dog. challenging enough to keep it interesting for me, but still doable for the others.

I love this place. Did a good bit of the trails. Relaxing and fun.

Always a good hike. Went clock-wise this time, puts the more moderate part up front and fairly easy the last 1/3.

This trail can lead to the other trails very easily. Out of all the trails i have done in PA this was the most boring. It has a good overlook at the very beginning but not many others after that.

This trail has diverse terrains and a great view midway through of both the NW and SE. Trail majority is extremely rocky. Difficult to keep trail running pace.

Great tree cover, mostly clear trail without rocks, gentle up and downs. Good for kids or beginners. Not much to see.

Was not hard. I would say this is more of an moderate trail. most of this trail is rocky with some small boulders to walk over (-3ft). has bathroom and waterfountain nearby. decent views for the area in some places.

This is my go to trail since its close to my house and can be done in an hour. Two nice views from the observation decks where the power lines cut through the park. Plenty of nice side paths as well if you want to explore different routes.

Great trail near our house. Lots of side trails. Some ok elevation to get your heart going if you stay to the outside trails.

One of my favorite places to hike with the pup. Lots of little branched off trails, boulders to climb on and around. And there are water fountains (for dogs as well) and restrooms at the parking area.

Nice easy trail, great for dogs and owners alike.

A good beginner trail. Variety in difficulty and length depending on the paths you take. The overlooks are close to the parking lot for people that want a view without a long hike.

This is a great place to build your trail legs, but go slow at the beginning! I know from personal experience that a fall on these rocky trails will ruin your day.

Great local trails the are maintained regularly. The trails range in difficulty from novice to expert. I take my 5 year old here regularly and he can handle even the most challenging trails.
