Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

Was a great trail. Some elevation areas but easy enough for my 4 1/2 grandson and with my dog to walk all of it. It was very crowded around the falls but that was to be expected for a holiday weekend. Would definitely recommend this trail.

My wife and I did this trail as our first hike. It was fun. The falls were beautiful. The difficulty seemed right on point for what was advertised. Would definitely repeat.

Gorgeous falls! We went to the left at the fork in the path where the stairs are to your right and I’m glad we did! We loved getting to close out the loop with the gorgeous falls!! Stopped by the pond and it was not worth the detour. Liked that you had the option of skipping the hike and seeing the falls if you physically weren’t up for a hike but be prepared for lots of stairs :)! More than worth it though!!

Nice hike with hills and valleys. The trail was muddy for the most part but it is the end of winter and to be expected. Numerous hikers were on the trial as well so it must be pretty popular.

Nive variety of elevation, easy to navigate, really beautiful! Not too difficult as there's stairs at the steeper parts. Can definitely get muddy depending on the weather.

Lovely day out for my very first solo hike! Challenging trail at times, especially on some of the hills. Pretty muddy after the heavy rain we got, but absolutely beautiful and just the right amount of uphill vs. flat to make it a challenge, but not extremely difficult. Will be returning on a drier day for sure!

Pretty views, nice picture stop near the waterfall, well marked. Decent challenge - lots of hills and steps to keep the hike interesting

Good well marked trail easy to follow. Parking at the house is limited but over flow parking at Towpath trail. A couple of serious uphills and downhills but not bad.
