Beautiful sights, Glen Helen is always (a tip if you go there often just get the 20$parking pass so u don’t pay $5 each time u go out there or opt for free street parking and make ur way here )

Not moderate at all, extremely easy, perfect for first time hikers. Will not come back because of how easy it was but probably a perfect young family hike.

I went to Glen Haven on a Saturday. I liked that it was so close to Yellow Springs. There was a good amount of trail signs encouraging visitors to walk one way. It was pretty crowded when I went mid-day with many people not following the one way signs. I liked that the trail wasn’t entirely flat. If I were to do this trail again, I would go post covid on a different day.

The trail was good considering the snow and frozen ground. The curve by the spring was so icy that I felt the need to put on my yack tracks...no slipping after that. paced around the parking lot for a full 3 miles.

really nice elevation and length, lots of fallen trees on the longer trails, pretty muddy, not very good trail markers/directions. Pretty easy to go the won't way, but it's all a loop so not a big deal.

Awesome trail, well marked and not a lot of traffic. Filled up my water bottle at the spring, the water is amazing!

Great hike for the fall! Lots of beautiful color and multiple water features including a two small waterfalls and the yellow springs! A few water crossings are also optional and very fun when the water isn’t too high. Will definitely be back!
