Wasn't a great hike. Surrounded by tree coverage, only to end at an anti-climactic vista blocked by trees. Go to the Delaware Water Gap for better views, or just hike directly along the shoreline of the lake close by to this trailhead.

Absolutely amazing! Great experience! For my first time hiking, I loved it!

This trail is ok, not many views unless you take the short side trail to Wyanokie high point which I did at the end of the hike, lots of nice views up there but unfortunatley there is also a good amount of graffiti. The trail can be hard to follow at times since there are so many side trails so make sure you have the alltrails map downloaded. Parking lot was pretty full on a early saturday but this trail was mostly quiet, only passed a few other hikers.

This trail was very beautiful and peaceful. The day we went only met up with an occasional fellow hiker. I agree it was somewhat difficult for us. A lot of steep climbs sometimes over great slabs of granite. I would say hiking shoes rather than sneakers is a must.

This did not appear to be easy. We did the green trail to otter hole to blue and teal back to green. Snake den road trailhead. This was 6.8 miles. It was more moderate as there was many ups and downs and rocky. One section was a long uphill. Not sure this listing is correct. Nothing saying Weis Center.
