I hike this a few times each years. Stunning in the fall and the gorgeous greens in the spring are worth the climb. Week day early evenings aren't too busy but weekends get crowded. Typical PA rocks on the trail and some of the climb can get steep at parts. Totally worth the views, fresh air and wildlife. Make sure you check for ticks as I've found a few after this trail. Mostly shaded by trees which is nice and keeps it cooler in the summer.

Pleasant hike, bit of a climb early on, nothing terrible, rocky across the ridge, easy descent on Susquehanna trail

Good uphill hike. I made a mistake thinking it was a short hike in cool weather and overdressed... It was strenuous and I got way too hot.

Only reason for removing a star is the jagged rocks you have to walk on. Wear thick shoes.

Definitely closer to hard than moderate. We stayed on the trail until we hit the back part of the loop (Susquehanna trail). This is a great hike that offers a lot of challenging aspects. Parking at the lot made accessing the trail very easy. The noise of the highway was present the entire hike, but after a while you block it out.

Great time with Great Friends. Kind of busy with lot of Boy scouting cubbies but other then that it was okay.. Pretty rocky so don't wear your slippery shoes.

Beautiful view, but you sure have to work for it!

very nice

Enjoyed it- lots of rocks and steps going up. Pretty sure you need to turn around when you get to the lookout- I continued to follow the white blazes, but after 10 minutes remembered it was an out and back. Don’t be like me...

First time hiking The Peter’s mountain-loop with snow on the mountain. Incredible. The trail seemed much different with the rocks covered in snow, some places 2-3 ft deep. Strongly recommend taking the Susquehanna trail back to Clark’s Ferry. It’s one of the highlights. Miswak stick.

easy great place to bring anyone. good views not to hard a nice hike for all ages and skill levels

We did this trail last September! It was pretty difficult but well worth the hike once you get to the top! Beautiful views!!!

Awesome views,clear path,not a long hike but you will break a sweat.

Incline trail with steep sections and mostly rocky. If you have bad knees I wouldn’t recommend it. Great view once you get to the top.

Very pretty overlook. Still very manageable to hike in the snow, but Yaktrax or micro-spikes are a good idea. Will go again!

Great views. Well worth the hike.

Yesterday, I attempted hike up the trail. About 3/4 of the way up I encountered solid block of ice which covered the trail making passage near impossible. I turned around after almost falling off of the mountain. Lol!

First know that the traffic noise will NOT diminish as you ascend, like I was hoping. Even at the summit you will hear the highway. That being said, it's a pleasant hike, the woods are beautiful and I love the rocky spine-walking at the top. I found it impossible to locate the trail down to complete the loop so it turned into an out-and-back hike. Views of the river are nice but somewhat obstructed, I can't imagine how you'd see much of anything when the leaves are on the trees. I probably wouldn't hike this again due to the road noise.

great trail for newbies!

The trail was well blazed, even with all the switchbacks. I was able to get a great view of the river (although not quite photo friendly), but I could clearly hear the traffic the entire time. The path goes over rocks for a good portion of the trail, so just watch your footing with all the fallen leaves if you go during this time of year.

It's a decent hike, but it just didn't give me the views that I'm used to seeing on other hikes. So my expectations is what really what let me down. I did wander quite a bit from the trail too, it's fairly easy to find your way back.

A little slick because it has been raining but an overall great hike. Lots of stairs, so if you have bad knees I would recommend some knee braces. Otherwise, a short hike with a beautiful view! (I had my 2 dogs with me and they handled it with no problems)

Fun trail, lots of rocks and steep. 9 yo got too nervous with the rocks and trail edge towards the end to continue. 10 yo was blazing ahead and was bummed we didn't finish. Adventure!

It's a short hike that leads to a beautiful view of the water basin. I was the only one on the trail when I went Friday morning. The stone steps for the climb can be a bit of a workout and the path can become narrow at points, but totally worth it.

Fairly easy, yet interesting hike. The vista is breathtaking and awesomely panoramic. It is heavily trafficked on a Saturday early afternoon.

An extremely awesome payoff for a short distance and smooth elevation change.

Beautiful fall hike!

short...but good work out. beautiful up at the top.
