I use this trail often and I love it. It’s been so dry that Rainbow Falls is dried up right now. Oh well. However they’ve done some work on the trail and fixed/replaced some signs.

Definitely not 9.3 miles of a loop. It is still superset and in some areas very snow packed with snow coming to you upper calves. Awesome views and still a great run. Two loops made up about 14miles with about 1400 elevation gain.

Very beautiful trail along the gorge! Natural trail with a few dips and hills, but overall pretty easy. Went in the winter when there were no leaves on the trees so you could see how magnificent the gorge was!

Finally got to do the whole trail despite living on the other side of the gorge in Whitesville. Needs a little maintenance at trail junctions and where trails restart after clearing at the power lines. Some signs missing. Started at Oak Rim trailhead in Rodman, went about 8 miles, then looped back around to the car via Old State Road so we could try to see the eclipse. This trail meets up with other trails, John Young trail for one, which has two trail heads on Old State Rd. If you want a shorter hike to Rainbow Falls, these are it. Also there's a swing, picnic table,and grill at the junction of the John Young and one of the ski trails(missing sign). All in all, an amazing trail, will be doing it again.

This is so secluded and beautiful! I can't wait to go back! Trails are marked but you really have to be looking. We entered at the Oak Rim entrance and parked across the street from the entrance. We didn't see a soul the entire time. Our Labrador puppy was ecstatic to be on this trail. The views are unreal. Pretty close to the cliff edge for most of the hike, but it was gorgeous. We made it to the power lines and took those back to the road. Probably only completed about a third of the trail, but we will be back!

This is an excellent trail. Great views of the river below. The trail is located next to some sheer cliffs so be weary. We took our 12 week old puppy here and she had a blast splashing in the creeks and walking the trail. Bring bug spray but overall the bugs were not a problem. Breathtaking views, very secluded! We will be back!

Not worth the drive! Sketchy area. No parking lot. Signs were run down and hard to read. BRING BUG SPRAY!

This trail is actually located near Barne's Corner off of Williams Road. The trailhead is hidden at the east end by overgrowth. The trailhead at the west end says Oak Rim Trail. It is right across the road from the little parking area. Both trailheads have overgrowth for about the first 200 meters. After that, the trail is well marked with yellow trail markers that are spaced at an appropriate interval; just as you think you might be going off the trail, you look up and see the marker on a tree. There is a nice variety of up and down with only 1 or 2 steep sections.

This trail is pretty nice, the views are good. It could be a little more well-kept, the first part was pretty overgrown.
