I have done this trail once before and would like to go back! Can anyone confirm that this is the trail with the "overlook" with a couple benches up top?

Great Trail. You will run into few people if any. We went up and down the three ravines vs. crossing the bridges. Crossing the bridges I view as a foolish and risky undertaking. Have fun. Be safe.

Beautiful hike on a beautiful morning. Low temps, no humidity and a nice breeze.

You can park your car at Marcs at the intersection of RT 82 and Holzhauer Rd. Walk south down Holzhauer to reach the trail head. Makes for a nice loop.

This trail starts along the towpath, which is very busy. Once the actual trail starts, it is gorgeous and pretty quiet. A lot of interesting native american history along the way and the condemned bridges were so cool to see! A great adventure. The trails were clear and the bugs were minimal, too.

50 foot ravine, for comment below

This was an interesting trail, I wouldn't say it was hard it was pretty easy but I have been hiking for a few years now. When you start the trail there is a sign saying that the bridges are closed about 1.5 miles ahead. They are closed due to being condemned. Myself and my partner did go across them 3 in total due to someone removing a cross beam. They supported us and seemed ok to cross but I advise you do so at your own risk as they are condemned for a reason and they are taking you over a 500 foot ravine. Once you cross the bridges the trail starts to lose some of the markings as it is now longer being maintained. We saw a lot of deer and other animals who were shocked in seeing us but it was worth it. Again there are 3 bridges in all various conditions and that if you do proceed make sure to cross at your own risk.

Easy hike for those with experience and some interesting sights along the way.

Closer parking to trailhead would be nice but it's a good hike.

I started at Red lock trailhead. trail was good bridges are out so be careful a lot of dangerous terrain if you are looking to detour. Probably not best for people without hiking experience.
