My go to hike when I want to get out for a little bit. Never see anyone on it.

We did a 3 mile loop on the trails then drove over to Willow Point. Trails can have a bit of a climb and, during late summer anyway, were being squeezed by undergrowth at some points. Found some ruins along a trail running south of the reservoir. The walk out to Willow Point and the point itself was very pleasant.

Pros: Relatively short trails. Large visitor center with facilities.

Cons: Numerous intersecting trails can get a little confusing (park is too small to worry about getting lost though)

we went late morning with our 5 year old and black lab. we had a great hike, stopped off for some lunch we packed in a nice clearing. it would get a 5☆, however the one section for about 10 minutes was very over grown with brier bushes. other than that, I would defiantly hike it again !

Parked at the visitor center, which is very nice and worth checking out. First segment was through field of wildflowers then eventually got into the woods. Overall a very nice hike with some cool views of Middle Creek and Elder's Run down in the southern part of the loop. There are some steep inclines/declines and I would definitely rate this as moderate as opposed to "Easy". I was glad to have picked up a brochure with the trail maps. Using that and the All Trails app certainly helped with our navigation as some of the trails are oddly marked or not marked at all. There are also a lot of tempting offshoots but we decided to stay the course and stick with the plan.

Relatively easy hike. Two children along for the hike.
The views are beautiful. The trails in this area are very well kept but not always well marked.

Nice trail. Easy terrain and dog friendly.

Easy trail, beautiful along the creek, not much elevation, very nice for an easy hike.

Trail was extremely easy and more towards the boring side, completed in no time. I took my 2 shepherds with me, the trail was tiny and rocky at times, common for PA but terrible for taking 2 huge dogs and they were covered in ticks when we left. The trail is marked, but not incredibly well, but it's also hard to miss where you're going. I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.
