Great hike! Steep and rocky and beautiful plus a few trees down that you climb over. Took the yellow trail to the tracks and the blue trail back. Somewhere on the way back you should cross the creek back to the yellow blazes to get to the parking lot.

Beautiful and challenging. Look for the Orange Trail near the convergence at the Conestoga that leads to The Pinnacle!

our family's Lancaster County favorite

The hike to the tracks is one of my favorite places anywhere around. Also a good fishing spot

Awesome hike. Some roots cause ankle strain. Hiked down yellow and up blue trail. Highly recommended.

I heard of Tucquan Glen for a long time. This trail does not disappoint! It is a beautiful location. But parking is limited. I need to make sure I visit this trail during all four seasons.

Great trail. I recommend taking the yellow blaze trail in from the small parking lot across from the wood crafter's house. Parking is extremely limited so park wisely to help other hikers. Follow the yellow blazes straight through and down the steep grade to the railroad. Cross the railroad bridge and resume on the return following the blue blazes. At one point closer to the return to the parking lot consider crossing the creek and double back to the parking lot. Great views, nice little waterfalls and cool large rock formations makes this a nice quick hike. Spend maybe two hours total. It is steep and rocky in some areas so I would wear stable shoes that protect ankle from rolling. Not recommended for tennis shoes.

Loved it beautiful place..

Some trails are about the destination, this one is about the journey. Go here if you are looking for tranquility and beauty. While it was the easiest and quicket hike I have done so far, it was also one of the most magical (and fun!) I went when there was autumn foliage and watching the leaves float in the sky was pretty surreal.

Would I go back again? No, solely because it is a nature preservation site, so I do not want to further contribute to the foot traffic. But I am glad I went once and I am very happy I have pictures to remember this trip.

Gorgeous trail. Not suitable for small kids or elderly folks who may have trouble with walking on loose rock or climbing up large clumps of rock.

Top of the creek is easy. it gets more difficult yet much more scenic towards the bottom.

I did this hike with a section of the Conestoga Trail to the Pinnacle. It is a pleasant and very scenic trail with a couple of short steep climbs on the Conestoga Trail.

Went with 10 children between 6 and 10 years old. It was an awesome adventure. Next time we would have had the children walk down the whole creek one way and walk out the other. Just a great place. Parking was very hard to come by and seems that the neighbors really are annoyed by the hikers not always being considerate. I hope to come back to the place many more times.

Best place I have ever hiked in PA

Nice little adventure hike! Gently rolling waters, rocky scrambles, fallen trees across the creek to practice your balance, and a few deep places to take a dip. Use the [blue] trail (start on yellow for a bit first) all the way to the railroad... From the RR take a right and walk about 500ft down the tracks across the bridge, and then take [yellow] back... gets you the best of both worlds.

This hike is beautiful and follows the creek the entire way to the Susquehanna river. There are multiple trails that follow this route. You can avoid steep areas by crossing over the creek to the trail on the opposite side. The waterfalls are beautiful throughout the glen, surrounded by rhododendron. At the bottom of the trail you will reach the railroad tracks. If you cross over the tracks and down the embankment, you'll come to the river. When I was there it was shallow and smooth bottomed and I was able to swim out quite a ways before it ever got deep. There was minimal current. It was more like a lake. A great place for a swim. Obviously, my experience may not be consistent depending on river levels. Use caution as the river is unpredictable and can be dangerous.

We started on the yellow trail and returned on the blue. While parts were flat dirt and quite easy, roughly half involved scrambling up and over rocks. Our 4 year old loved it and we all found it beautiful. But a simple easy walk, it was not.

Enjoyable fairly easy path. The trail takes you along a creek that takes you to the Susquehanna River.

Lots of opinions and great views and trails

Great hike. Water, rocks, waterfall on blue trail. This is a new favorite.

AMAZING!! Breath taking scenery. Great trails, easy to walk and maneuver! Many options to choose from to hike and safe for children and dogs. I highly recommend it!

Good trail for hiking bad for running it has some very steep areas that you need to climb down. Also it can be very busy on a hot day and it's very difficult to find parking. I would recommend this spot in the off season. And I would not call it a loop it's an out and back. There's trails on either side of the stream but you cross back and forth.

This trail has a little bit of everything. Flat. Up hill. Down hill. Beautiful creek teeming with trout. Pools to wade and swim in. Small waterfalls. Fair amount of traffic but plenty of room to break away from swimmers in the summer.

Love this trail! I've done it several times, including last week. Just wanted to warn anyone interested that last week I did come across a mother Rattlesnake carrying some young on her back. I've come across a few copperheads here but this was my first rattlesnake sighting. She blended in really well and couldn't rattle due to her young wrapped around her tail so please keep a close eye on your trail. I posted a pic of her but it's not the best since I wanted to keep my distance.

There were no trail maps so I had to use my cell phone for an online map until my phone died due to no service in that area. I followed the yellow to the orange/yellow down to the train tracks. Then followed blue to some of the waterfalls before seeing a copperhead and deciding to go back the way I came in. There wasn't anyone else on the trails at that time and I didn't want to take a chance of getting bit. Great hike though it could be marked better. I plan on returning to do more of the trails.

Great place for a 2-3 hour hike! Depending on which trail you choose, there will be stream and log crossings. I avoided the log crossings and took the yellow trail out (which takes you away from the water for a bit) until you hit the railroad tracks and then the blue/red trail back in. The blue trail will lead you to the edge of the water across from the parking lot, which will then have to be crossed to get back to the parking lot. This involved quite a good amount of rock climbing but it was definitely worth it! Also, parking is extremely limited so get there early.

Absolutely gorgeous! Walked on the opposite side of the river trail first and checked out the giant rock formations first and did a little bit of rock climbing. The trail to the river was a little iffy on some spots crossing on downed trees so if your balance isn't the best maybe crawl across.

A very nice day. Be prepared for very limited parking especially on the weekend. Also, be prepared to walk across a fallen tree to cross the creek or get your feet wet in the creek.
