Great trail. If it weren't for the muddy trail and sparse trail markers, we would definitely have rated it a 5.

Good hike to schoolhouse falls, there are two muddy portions, expect your hiking shoes to get dirty. I'd recommend going the extra half mile from schoolhouse falls to the top of green mountain for a great view. To the top of green mountain and back to the trailhead is 4 miles. My 11 year old daughter did the hike no problem. The falls makes a good swimming spot. Enjoy!

One of my favorites :) Hiking up to Little Green Mountain isn't always easy but SO worth it!

I wouldn't have really considered this to be that difficult of a hike depending on which way you go. But if you hike to just the falls it's easy. The falls was the best thing honestly.

Absolutely my favorite place to hike!
There are plenty of trails to explore here. I do recommend bringing some trail markers, because not all the trails are marked and it is sometimes difficult to find the way back.

Huge variety of trial types, from mountain top views, waterfalls, and trail difficulty. The many trails offer you the ability to combo them to custom your hiking experience. The trails are also marked at the beginning of the trail ends with numbers that make navigation easy as long as you have a map. No maps are offered at trail head in parking lot so we had to take a picture with our phones.

I love this place. This was the first time I've been there when it was warm. We usually go in November. Can't wait to go back

This hike has a little bit of everything. I really love the variety of this hike and all the paths off the trail that you are able to take. Print out a copy or save the PDF of the trail on your phone, it is easy to get lost.

Know how to read a map and go early, if you don't intend to camp. Then enjoy all you see and discover!!

An amazing place with great campsites, hiking and views. Take a map, take your time and don't over look the trip up to High Bethel. Definitely worth every effort.

Great hike with views of two waterfalls plus two more that we decided not to do this day because of a late start. School House Falls and Greenland Creek Falls were everything advertised and the overlook was a very interesting area to explore. Well worth the effort and will back to the area.

In many trail reviews, it's difficult to determine whether or not a trail is good for running. Panthertown is obviously renowned for hiking, but I've run throughout Panthertown Valley several times and can say it is one of the best places I've ever been. If you stay on the trails designated for Bike or Horse, the running is a perfect mix of fast and technical. The trail footprint allows you to get good mileage without running the same trails. Several loops can be made utilizing different sections of trails. The upper trails are elevated, dry and fairly wide, while the lower sections can be technical and wet. Take a GPS watch in case you need to retrace your path and find your way out, but there is no better way to learn the trails than to get lost once or twice.

Just got back from Panthertown valley and all I can say is "WOW". Totally awesome. I would recommend going VERY prepared. Don't get caught trying to make it through the many unlabeled trails in the dark...unless you are experience and are prepared to meet the dangers lurking in the night while hiking. We went in when it was dark and got out when it was dark and were ready to meet the challenges. Views are amazing. You must have a map and can be found online for free. I can now see why people have to get airlifted out of this remote area every year. Just go in prepared and you won't have any trouble.
