This is a fun short tail that gives you opportunities to hop over rocks and small waterfalls at the headwaters of a creek. There are also opportunities for light bouldering on the quartzite outcrops at the top of the mountain.

Great hike! Don't follow the blue trail markers, that leads you the wrong way. Just back track the water flow towards the right and you'll get to the water fall. We went past the falls and climbed the rocks.

The initial run is pretty mediocre- essentially an ATV track. Once you hit the Appalachian trail it becomes a lot more interesting and challenging. There actually is a small parking area where Dead Woman's Hollow trail meets up with the AT, next time I'm starting there.

Pretty easy Trail except once you pass the 1st. Vista the Trail has many different branches to follow. My buddy got his feet wet so we hiked up to th rocks from the trail instead of hiking all the way around.

Made an attempt to hike Hammonds Rock Trail today. After getting on Glory Hole MTB trail, there was a point where the Hammonds Rock Trail should have turned left (around a large rock ridge line), but I was unable to find the trail. The trail may have grown over due to all the restoration in the area... may need to be cut again. All around a good hike none-the-less.

Went just after a rain! Beautiful and lush, the stream and falls were wonderful! Parts of the trail along the stream were a bit tricky with wet rocks and logs across the path but it's manageable and worth it! Could have stayed and listened to the sounds of the stream for hours! Natures music

The out and back style route is a nice little hike

I don't suggest taking the loop route that this trail is currently marked as. The hike up to the ridge line was fine but poorly marked. Trail became nonexistent a little past that.

Like everyone said, ruined. The view sparkles in the day time from all the broken bottles.

I've been here many times over the past 20 years. It used to be a nice and quite place. Now it's always packed full of people and no longer enjoyable. If you drive by and their aren't 20 cars jammed into the spot it's worth a stop!

This is my favorite hike in the world, but I'm probably being a little biased :p There's a beautiful rhododendron forest along the creek at the foot of the incline, and the hike up the mountain stream makes it a perfect hike during that unbearable summer heat! I've run into a few other hikers here and there, but I just did a snowy winter hike and saw only footprints. The outcrop at the top gives you a 360 degree view of nothing but sky and trees. Amazing!

Very scenic to hike up the stream, but beware of the posted signs. Also, not well marked at all. Beautiful views from the top.

Tumbling Run Game Preserve is a privately owned area and is marked no trespassing around the entire perimeter. As the area is used for hunting and shooting sports there is a danger if the signs are ignored. Please use the Trails that are marked for public use like the Blueberry Trail and AT. Lewis Rocks is off limits as it is on private property as is most of the falls. Thanks

By far one of my favorites! Just did my first winter hike here and I fell even more in love with this place. Half the fun is finding your own way as there are very few markings and lots of different paths people have created. I just stay close to the stream and hang a right at the top waterfall to access Lewis Rocks. Snakes are common so be cautious. Give yourself plenty of time to explore! Absolutely beautiful in any season!
