Did this hike in the summer over the 4th of July weekend. Beautiful weather, great hike. We didn't do the whole 11 miles, we did the 5.2 mile loop that's shown in some of the tracking maps. Very steep in the first mile, but then it levels out and is pretty easy after that. The views aren't totally clear because of tree growth, but still beautiful and dramatic for PA.

Awesome trail! Two solid days of hiking given the elevation and terrain. Plenty of good camping spots along the way.

Possibly my favorite feature of this hike is the hotel + restaurant + bar almost exactly at the half way point in Slate Run. We stopped off for a beer and hearty meal for lunch and it couldn't have worked out better.

We'll definitely do it again.

breath taking

Lots of rocks and would definitely be better with more water but was a fun hike took about 2 1/2 hrs some narrow edges and slippery rocks.

nice easy trail with a waterfall what you can stand under. Trail follows a creek to the fall. There is a flat spot on top of the falls to have a nice lunch.

bridge from the south is out. have to approach from the north for now

I didn't exactly hike this exact route. We took the left fork and ended up on the black forest trail, connected to Grady road and ended not far on 44 from the pull off for BlackBerry. The left fork took us down the mountain on a pretty steep trail with a small boulder pile to traverse down. Once at the bottom we followed black forest across the stream, quite a few times, till we hit Grady all at a relatively slow incline. it was a more difficult 6 miles but still a really nice hike with a great view and forest scenery.

Bridge is out at the intersection of Wallis Run RD. And butternut grove RD. Looks like it'll be out for a long time yet.

Kind of took this one on a whim. Awesome views from the top. Trail is very steep in places so watch your step.

This was by far the most difficult trail I have done to date! The climbs are outrageous but the reward is great views for sure! Only came across 1 rattle snake...a Black Timer Rattler...let us pass right by and never even buzzed. Started the trail, from Slate Run, and went clockwise but do to injury had to cut day 2 short. Water was in great supply.

8.17.17 - Bridge is out that leads to the trailhead. Detour is difficult to follow and totally out of the way. Skip this until the road is open again.

Did this trail with my boyfriend and our dogs. The parking lot is easy to find via coordinates. The trail starts off paved and crosses the bridge. Shortly after crossing, keep your eyes open for an unpaved and unmarked trail head to your right. Follow it straight, this trail eventually has blue markers that make it easier to follow. Other trails link with this one, so some blue markers also have yellow. Simply follow the blue, it gets a little step but offers a nice view once you get to the top. We ended up turning back once we got to the overlook to make it a shorter hike.

We attempted to ride the entire length of the trail while bicycle camping along the way. A damaged bike kept us from getting further than Blackwell, PA (starting at the trailhead near Wellsboro, PA), but that portion that we hit through the Natural Area of the "canyon" was great.
We stayed overnight at a camping area at the old CCC town of Tiadagton. Eagles, black bear, ducks, geese, white tailed deer and timber rattlesnakes were seen in plenty. The middle of the Natural Area did not see much in the way of other campers or even bikers during the two weekend August days that we were base camped there. The star gazing was awesome and the night sounds of the old town site kept us wondering since we were the only people camped there.
The town of Blackwell has a general store that should be a standard stop on the trail.
The ride was very easy as the trail is the best Rail Trail that I have ever ridden. And I have ridden on many. I would suggest this trail to anyone looking for a day trip up to a multi night adventure. Caution should be exercised with the numerous bears (storing food stuffs) and the number of rattlesnakes trail side.
This is one of PA Wilds best hidden gems.

Kind of the same thing the entire way, no views. But its out there. Lots of bugs, recommend pants. Easy trail like it states, not very much elevation gain or loss at all.

Not sure if I found the right spot. all the views were off-road driving views. found a trail near a sign that said Vista #1. there were 3 of those signs down the road. at Vista #1 there is a trail off to the left hand side. Yellow blazes, not sure if this was the trail or not. GPS takes you further down the road than you need to go. but if you follow the road all the way out there is a nice view there as well. Near Sproul state forest. pretty sure it is Sproul, but alltrails says it's not. Easy hike following the markings tho. leads into the MST

This was a great trail! Nice for kids and those who may not hike often. A couple of nice patches of ripe wild blueberries made for tasty treat. Also a couple of nice vistas too. Would be a great trail in the fall while the leaves are changing. I would suggest wearing pants this time of year as a couple of sections had high weeds we had to go through. All in all, very nice afternoon getaway.
