Great ridge line trail. Nice views in the winter, and lots of blueberries in the summer. I don’t recommend attempting to go up from or down to shingle path. Even in winter, ticks were really bad. The shingle path sign on top of Tussey has been removed due to erosion.

Cool hike depending on what trails you choose! Check out my recording.

Very beautiful views. Pretty easy hike even though it was snow covered. Had to watch some of the rocks, but not hard at all.

Relatively easy even in the snow. Amazing view!

Enjoyed our hike, didn’t make it to the top this time. We got a little spooked when we came across a rattlesnake. We’ll be back soon though!

Pretty difficult trail. No parking and serious thorn overgrowth. It was so bad we had to let the dogs off leash to get through it. You probably won't see anyone else on this trail. It's completely secluded which I enjoyed. Beautiful mature forest on a back road but I still had cell phone service.

Great trail, but definitely not easy. Parts are very steep. View is one of the best I’ve seen in PA. I can’t wait to go back in October to see colored leaves. Teenage daughter not so appreciative- she put it on her “I will never do this again so don’t you dare ask” list. Happy to not see snakes; lots of mud instead!

Not the most clearly marked trail.

really pretty in the afternoon sun, lots of variety and very peaceful. kind of short but good for a day hike

Beautful hike, but yes be careful, We had a close encounter with a pretty big rattlesnake.

beastly climb to top of ridge but worth it. BE CAREFUL OF COPPER HEADS! We came across one sunning itself in the middle of the ridge trail.

good trail. just too easy for me~

first of all this trail is not easy. second it is blazed with orange then yellow to go throne room outlook. it starts out on a driveable road until you reach the sign with an American flag which tells you that throne room is 1 km up the path and butler is 3.2 km. we did not get to go to butler due to time and trying to find this trail but the views off throne were rewarding. we frequently hike and it was quite difficult at times with the rocks. my fiance's dad 64 yrs was able to do it though.

Nice diversity for a short hike - lake, forest and crossing streams (stepping across rocks). Very well marked and as others have mentioned, the loop is actually 2.7 miles. The only downsides are a very short part of the trail is on a street and it crosses a metal grate bridge. Occasionally heard some noises from cars and chainsaws which, of course, takes away from that wilderness vibe. All in all, an excellent hike and certainly suitable for novices.

I love this trail! The All Trails app needs to update info because it's more like 2 1/2 miles. You have to cross the water at a few points. They have large rocks for this. My dogs and I just walked through the streams but I've heard when the water is high the rocks get a bit slick. It's a nice shady path for most of the hike, so it's great on sunny,hot days. Alot of places to stop and get in the lake or the stream crossings. The only big negative is that you have to connect with the actual road (albeit briefly) and walk across a metal bridge. My pups were not thrilled and you would probably have to carry a smaller dog across. A few inclines but nothing major. Overall, I'll defenitly be using this trail again.

This is most certainly a difficult trail. Turning off the rocky midstate trail to descend and get water i was looking forward to an easy stretch down off the mountain. Turns out it is more challenging than a particularly rocky stretch of the midstate.

Easy trail but very, very rocky. Don't do this trail if you don't enjoy hiking on rocks. Did run into a rattler as well. Did not see any other hikers and the trail is well maintained.

Looking forward to using this app. More later.

Great trail, but be on the look out for rattlesnakes in the boulder fields. I ran into two, so I was a bit too paranoid to really enjoy myself.

Not groomed but lots of fun.

Nice little meadow midway. A short part of the path is also a stream! Saw nobody else.

Great trail limited vistas few people. This is not a loop it’s out and back.

Had a wonderful hike along the ridge on a beautiful, chilly spring morning. would definitely return.

Awesome hike, trail markers change from blue to yellow. We decided to make a loop with the Mid State Trail and that made for a much more challenging hike! Best hike I’ve done in PA so far!

This hike was extremely enjoyable. Ridge line hiking is the best.

Trail should be rated moderate. Generally flat. If you like climbing amongst the rocks this trail has them. Returned on the MST back to Pine Grove.

Great elevation gain. have to really pay attention to white blazes.

Did this a few summers ago. Great views, and great bears crossing the trail.

Clearly marked red blazed trail. Easy walk , until you come to where the trail takes you up the mountain to the Vistas. Sign says it's a 1 km hike up, I didn't track it, but, although not a long distance, it was a work out. It is a steep and fairly rocky climb to the top. Definitely wear proper footwear. Once to the top, you will be rewarded by beautiful views and it's WELL worth the climb. Wish, we would have had more time to continue along the trail past the throne room! However, I wouldn't rate the climb to the Vista as easy, but rather moderate- hard.
