This trail is great when you come down in the clearing after you see the Schreffler sign take a quick left and a quick 5 minute detour will take you to a hang gliding launch site and a breathtaking lookout! This is a sight you don’t want to miss!

HikingGreat!

The hang gliding lookout is NOT on the actual trail. When you park at the trail walk to the top of the hill and go to the right to the big clearing! It’s a beautiful spot to relax after walking the 6+ miles out and back. We were bummed because we got the end of the trail and through it would be at the end but we were very excited when we found it after we were done! Great easy trail! Only need hiking boots for a small section towards the end most is easy walking.

Hiking

9/26/20: Trailheads not easy to find, no markings on any trail we did eventually find and walk on, couldn’t figure out if this trail has been renamed to “Faust Trail” - trail meanders through tons of mossy rock but also splits off onto a grass road....place was overly confusing and building not open on Saturdays, so we walked around and basically got fed up and left. If trails were clearly marked we would go back. We also tried the trail across parking lot but trail stopped dead before route 42. Turned around and went the other way about 2 miles and also found nothing. Trails were nice when you could tell you were on one, but without any markings or signs we were unable to find where we would be going and for how far of a distance. No cell service for Verizon in area, so no cell maps available either.

Nicely isolated easy walk in the woods, quiet and enjoyable. Saw no other hikers, just a hunter and a group of bike riders.

Beautiful and very peaceful trail. Rolling hills with one large climb at the beginning.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Fabulous trail! Gorgeous views, especially from the Deep Hollow trail. As others have mentioned, I would recommend taking the loop clockwise (Iron Mine > Rock Ridge > Deep Hollow). The trail starts and finishes on a pretty steep incline/decline, respectively, but both sections are wide and well-maintained. Rock Ridge is quite level but more technical – much narrower trail through the woods, with plenty of stones underfoot (as the name implies). There are a couple forks where the blazes are harder to spot, but overall a very clear and well-marked trail. Very low traffic; we only saw one other pair on a Saturday during LDW.

The trail is more for biking or those hikers who don't want to get into more challenging trails. It's something for an outting for young children. Gravel road/path the entire way. Take some paths off the main path and you find just enough visual treats to make it worth it. There were some beautiful views but it wasn't challenging enough to want to do again. There were several trails off the main trail I may return for in the future.

Nice easy gravel trail. Sons BMX bike handled the conditions fine. Some nice shade. Made the ride nice when it was 100+ in the sun. Plenty of benches and picnic tables for breaks along the way.

HikingMuddyOver grown

Note this loop consists of 3 different trails (Homestead Tr > Old Reservoir Tr > Headwaters Tr). Was pretty easy hike, but realizing is much dryer than usual I avoided what could be some pretty muddy conditions especially where the loop turns north to cross the stream on Old Reservoir Tr. Could see where water just flows everywhere if enough rain. A lot of the southern portion of this loop (Homestead Tr) was pretty overgrown right now with tall grass/fern, but the trail is wide so still easy to follow. Northern part of loop is a little bit rockier than the others. I don't recall any markings along the trails, but there are wooden vertical sign posts at each of the intersecting points. Did encounter a rattlesnake slowly crossing the trail on northwest corner of the loop (Headwater Trail), so do keep an eye out.

HikingOff trailRocky

I liked this trail and the various change in scenery it offers throughout the length of it. Is mostly shaded, but still goes through different types of terrain which keeps it interesting (large rocky areas, deep gullies, thick moss, etc). Despite being mid-July, it also wasn't really overgrown at all like many other trails this time of year. Only the area that actually goes along the higher point of the mountain was getting a bit thick in vegetation. This trail could definitely benefit from some markings/blazings/signage. Given how long the trail is, I thought it would be a more established one in regards to blazing, but not so. Was doing a large loop coming up from Roaring Creek Tr and so had jumped on this trail from the west end which had about 2 sign posts to get you started...then nothing after that for quite some time. The trail itself is easy enough to follow, but has no blazes/markings and there are numerous unmarked intersecting trails with no signs at these points. So you will definitely need the AllTrails app or some type of GPS to stay on track for much of it. Whatever trails do have markings are all maroon blazes so no way to distinguish between the trails from these (only really saw these on the east part of the trail). Although the trail goes along the top of the mountain, there are no views at all (not that I was expecting this). Even in winter you probably wouldn't see much. Only spot where there is somewhat a view is where it crosses Pump House Trail at the clearing. This is also at the point where the trail turns south to continue on Pump House Trail, then Aristes Rd Trail (I think) until it gets to Rt 42. There were no signs for Big Mountain Trail toward the east end so I suppose it just merges with these (or Dark Road Tr)? This state forest tract in general had me more confused than others with the trail markings. Was also comparing the Roaring Creek Trail map in combination with Weiser State Forest Public Use map and AllTrails and still got misguided.

We actually biked this trail and had a great time. The views of the reservoir were outstanding. A little up and down 7.7 miles out and back. Easy terrain for hiking

this is a nice trail for day hike, but not for camping as its very limited for camp site.

HikingRocky

I think the trail suggestion is a bit misleading. 1st the Double Track is called Iron Mine trail and goes uphill from the parking lot. It is wide and easily walked but uphill. Scenery is beautiful. We took the Rock Ridge trail which is really rocky with lots of loose stones, Even with good boots this was changeling so we branched to Wolf Pond Road. Unfortunately we then took Wolf Pond Trail back towards the parking lot. Big mistake, very rocky and long. Should have taken Deep Hollow back. So I would recommend Iron Mines - Matter Trail - Deep Hollow for this "easy " hike. We did it clockwise.

We went clockwise from the parking lot. A lot of water on the track. When we got to the creek it was too high to cross so we did an in and out. Not sure of the creek conditions in dryer weather but I would want water shoes and hiking poles to cross unless the level drops dramatically in dryer conditions.
