Beautiful mountain trail. Steeper than expected without much vista view when in full summer. But still pretty with all the flowers and fungi.

A nice trail over all, but very unkempt in certain areas. Some nice camp spots as well. Definitely enjoyed this trail.

The scenery is gorgeous. The bugs are pretty terrible in July, but that's hardly the trail's fault. The path does get difficult to follow towards the beginning of the switch-backs (it's easy to get off course). Also, it's only a 4.1 mile trail.

Beautiful, peaceful hike. Did not encounter one person on the trail. Bring walking sticks for the up and down. Loop is only 4 miles (not 7 miles as listed on app).

This trail was a 27mile hike from beginning to end. My buddy and I did it clockwise, and found that the hills were very arduous. A good trail with low traffic, good campsites and plenty of water opportunities. However, the trail runs directly through a swamp around 100m across in the last 3 miles. Some areas were not well blazed (labelled). All around a good hike, but I don't intend to do it again.

Took my two sons for their first time. Tough climbs, great campsites, sufficient water supply, all around good trail. Great experience. Will be back, again and again.

This trail is awesome! I grew up in Renovo, but I didn't start hiking it until I moved. Now I live in AK and I try to hike sections of the CKT every time I'm back east.

I've completed this trail three times. Two of them with snow (3-10 inches) and one in the spring. Every time we hiked it we went counter-clockwise. The last time was in the spring of 2011 and the trail was in dire need of maintenance. There were multiple places with severe blow down. We camp our first night at Cranberry Run. It is a great campsite under pine trees and next to a stream. The second night we spent it at the dry campsite after Pete's Run road. This is a very strenuous hike. Be sure to check out the small water fall in the last hollow after you cross 144.
