Amazing trail! So many scenic views all the way! pretty hard to hike it, but it was worth it 100%! Make sure to check Chimney Top at 2.2 miles if you follow current trail. You will be blown away with the view... it doesn’t show it as a part of the hike here , but you will see a tiny road at 2.2 miles that brings you to the top of the world :) that part will be very steep, but just follow the road and then you will see what I’m talking about...

We did not start at marked trailheads. We started form the tower at the top of the forest road where we camped. The All Trails app showed the gas pipeline right of way here leading to this trail so we hopped on it. We only did about 4 miles total. The views were really pretty. There a lot of unmarked roads:trails around here.

A great, easy hike for anyone! Little elevation, with an incredible view. Tons of shade and not overgrown at all.

I went in the middle of July and the trail was practically washed out. The stream was also very high which led to some interesting crossings (I think there were 6 total?), but the trail is great for backpacking because there are large campsites about every 0.25 mile. Bugs are always a big thing during the summer months, so be ready for that! Other than that, there isn’t much of an incline or really technical parts. It’s great for an easy day out.

Entered from the north trailhead. Loved the trail- packed way too heavy though (73lbs) and it was brutal. I stayed over night at Chimney top and the views were breathtaking. Plan on going back with a much lighter pack so I can go further past Chimney too.

Nice shaded trail!

Awesome trail! Numerous overlooks!

Short hike anyone can do with one of the best views

Went here with my buddy, his girlfriend, and their Corgi at sunrise. Solid uphill hike and beautiful views at the top. Be sure to sign the register! 3 down, 47 to go!

9/21/19 - Good family hike beautiful & quiet. Directions to trailhead were spot on. Trailhead is kind of hidden and over grown on PR 95. When it says you reached your destination, stop & look to the right, you should see the trail marker. There is enough parking for3 or 4 vehicles. From here the trail starts out as the Crouch Hunter trail. When you get to the bottom of the first hill you will find the trail forks. To the left is Crouch Hunter which connects to Turkey Hunter and to the right is Wildcat trail. If you stay on Crouch Hunter you will find Turkey Hunter will be to your left on up the trail. Crouch Hunter continues on till it hits the far end of PR 49. We chose to make a loop so we took the Wildcat trail and it too comes out on PR 49. We then took a left and stayed on the road. This is the only easy way to make a loop back to Crouch Hunter. A couple or so miles down the road you will find the other entrance to Crouch Hunter trail. It’s on the left across from a marked camp site. The trails are moderate to difficult & well worn. Although they could be marked better. (More Blaze) You should go check them out.

The trail was a bit muddy in areas, but not too bad. I could see it being muddier after a recent rain or in the winter. It took us about 1 hour out and back with two dogs and including time spent at the overlook. The views are great!

We started our hike from Laneville and followed this for a couple of hours until an unmarked trail branched off to the right. After following this for some time it eventually faded away leaving us to do some very serious bush waking to the top. (This is actually the most intense bush waking I have ever done.) We eventually found the actual top marked with a summit pole. The way down was more or less the same. We had no GPS (more fun the old fashion way) so it was a bit tricky finding the correct way down. I guess you could easily get lost up there! The hike was beautiful even if the views were very limited. It was very dry most of the way and we met and saw no one. Great corner of the world! We were about 8 hours on the road in total.

We hiked this trail on a Sunday in September. Hike had a little of everything. The trail started in the woods, came out to a meadow with an old orchard, back to a hardwood forest, then a hemlock forest. Up a mountain and back down to a railroad, then to the highlight and turnaround point - the High Falls. Great solitude. We didn’t see another person during the entire hike. Walking on the railroad tracks is a little rough and I'm glad the train didn't go by because there wasn't much space to the side of the tracks to get out of the way. We heard the train blowing it's whistle as it was leaving. I would have liked to see the train, but glad we didn't see the people. Also, when you approach the railroad track the first time, just take a right on the track all the way to the falls. It was confusing because there was a blue blaze across the track that isn't the trail. We had the falls to ourselves and the hike was worth it. There is a nice swimming spot past the lower falls. Careful of the slippery rocks! The meadow was bit overgrown, but very pretty. Might be good to wear pants to avoid scratches. The hike was a challenging workout. We took our time doing it. With breaks and lunch, it took us 6 hours.

Great trail! Probably the best trail we've hiked so far. It will give you a workout though. The falls are beautiful and we got to see the train come in.

Not difficult terrain, but lots of sharp rocks imbedded in the trail and large, exposed tree roots. Hiking boots are warranted. I hiked until the decline became steeper than I wanted to climb back up. This is about 4 miles from the trail head on Spruce Knob. The trees thin out and have a very high canopy at this area, and in late summer/early autumn, there's a forest shade meadow of white flowers that the trail cuts right through. The flowers were just past peak when I saw it.
