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.

great trail but can get confusing on the loop . not for beginners! terrain is unstable and large portions are uphill. scenic and cool hidden treasures along the way. wear bug spray for ticks and mosquitoes! recommended age 8 and up!

Not trail for beginners:(

First 2 legs were great but the last leg along power lines not maintained got confusing and over grown found a deer path half way down and finished through the woods. Got a little frustrating considering I had my daughter along. We were loving the trail until that point. So beware once you get to that point. In hind sight we should of doubled back at third leg but didn't know what we were getting into at that point.... Good luck!

Over half of this "trail" is dirt road. It opens up with a pretty significant climb up a logging road to Horseshoe Trail. Horseshoe trail eventually turns into an actual trail. Since we went left the trail was relatively steep and rocky. This trail should definitely be considered moderate as opposed to easy because first time hikers are going to find this terrain difficult at best.

We were very disappointed. Because much of the trail is attached to logging efforts, there was little to no wildlife. We heard one wood pecker, saw one squirrel and two blue birds. We will never return to this trail and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Nice hike along the creek. Cool old cabin foundation along the way with a old spring house. Very dog friendly.

I did a loop of Middle Creek Trail to Elder's Run to Horse-shoe trail, 3.75 miles total. Good hike, couple of steeper rocky parts but mostly easy. Nice views of the creek and woods. Would definitely do this again.
