the trail is great and challenging but the app was for the most part worthless in keeping us on the trail. way out of date.

Great little day hike with lots of creek/stream crossings with lush green ferns and moss everywhere. We went on a Saturday in August and saw very few people on the trail. Not a whole lot of elevation change but certainly not flat. Rocks everywhere, as expected in PA, but footing was manageable and not an issue. Nice little hike!!

Really nice hike with great features. When you are on the logging road, the trail goes left at the three orange marks near the sign about the controlled burn. The logging road also has orange marks, but they are long and a slightly different shade of orange.

Great trail, very well marked. Bugs were a problem, but that comes with the territory of water nearby, my dog loved it.

I started on the Sand Spring trail and then picked up the Tom Lowe trail as most reviews were suggesting that. Love the small waterfalls and sand springs. It does get rocky in some sections and as others mentioned the blazes are a little confusing. The Tom Lowe trail is thick in sections and you are basically bushwhacking so bring tick repellant. When you see little side trails that are like deer paths, take them. They lead to little hidden gems. Overall a great hike!

Starting with the Sand Spring Trail was great, we went on a foggy morning and everything was lush and green. The Sand Spring was so neat. The Tome Lowe Trail was beautiful. Countless waterfalls and the streams were easy to cross. Rocky in some sections but manageable and the blazes were easy to see. Can't wait to do the loop again!

Would have given 5 stars had the trail been marked better. As other reviews mention, there is a wide service road, also with orange blazes, which can be a little confusing for someone that is not familiar with the area. There is a narrow & steep section of this trail that was slippery while snow covered. We began on Sand Spring Trail & connected to this trail, making a nice 5.6ish mile loop that began & ended at the parking area. There are water crossings. Hiked this trail with dogs & they did fine.

This trail may very well be my new favorite place to hike. There was approximately 1.5 inches of snow on the ground, the woods were thick, and the trail was nowhere as rocky as Hawk Mountain. Plenty of water crossings, some small waterfalls, and some great scenery for a winter hike. Most of the trail was within a valley surrounded by mountains which offered a true alone feeling. Lots of seclusion and peacefulness. Really looking forward to doing this one next summer
