Great hike! The falls were amazing and really enjoyed that it was a loop. Definitely start at Stanford house and go all the way to the falls!

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.

Good hike almost 4 miles. Always like seeing the falls. First time taking this trail.

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!

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.

You can take off your shoes and walk in the stream instead of going on the trail since the stream bed is smooth, flat rock. It will not hurt your feet!

Really enjoyed this trail! Peaceful, scenic, slightly challenging in spots with the elevation changes.

This was a fun trail with a great place to stop and play/swim about half way to the main falls area. We did not feel that this hike was a moderate level as indicated, especially compared to similar trails in the area. We felt this was an easier trail.

Great trail with many inclines and stairs, making it a nice workout. The falls were a beautiful surprise at the half way point of my hike. Circling around the falls, there were some very rocky and unleveled surfaces. I have some challenges with heights, so I stayed well to the right of the trail as I made my way down to lower ground.

Great trail with elevation and scenario. The trail was busy with trail keepers and others hiking at 10:30am on a Saturday.

Didn't realize people would be swimming in the creek below the falls. We should have brought sandals and a towel for that.

Will look to go again, not following a line of storms. Low points cause some muddy terrain.

One of my favorite local hikes in Northeast Ohio. Doesn't take too long but packs in quite a workout with the hilly terrain. Plus you can see the Falls once you're done!

Absolutely one of my favorite trails, Brandywine happens to be a calm and tranquil area surrounded by some small farms. This trail is great for all ages and skill levels.. The waterfall is one of the best scenes there because the plants that grow around it are beautiful.. also some historic sites are there!
