I thought it was a well marked trail. We followed the yellow LT markers until we hit blue markers. Starts off beautifully along a creek, there is something so peaceful about hearing the water. The trail was pretty muddy and slippery which is expected in PA so hiking boots should definitely be worn. The hike itself was a bit anticlimactic, the waterfall was large but hard to get close enough to see and enjoy. We tried to hike down to get closer but ended up giving up. A bit disappointing but you can't help but still enjoy the hike because of the quietness, sound of water and beautiful surroundings. Worth doing once.

Nice little hike. Took us about 1.5 hours to get up to the top of the falls. Trail was well marked. The trail map at the base made it seem like we could follow the blue trail back down. I don’t think this is the case. It’s just an out and back, no loop. Really pretty falls. saw one group of three as we were about to finish. Didn’t see anyone else. Enjoy!

Great out and back with rewarding destination. A bit muddy but that means the falls are flowing nice. Ended up being closer to 4 miles since we explored around the falls. Shoes with good treading recommended; it’s steep in some areas.

I honestly thought the trail was well marked. There was no difficulty following the trail to the falls. I hiked to the bottom of the falls And then hiked back along the creek to complete loop instead of hiking back up. The majority of the hike is along the Loyalsock trail and is a nice walk in the woods but nothing special. It is the cliff like rock walls surrounding the falls that make the hike worthwhile. There is not a large quantity of water falling over the falls but their sheer height and precipitous drop are impressive. Definitely worth doing once.

This is an out and back trail. It starts from the road and you're on the Loyalsock Trail for a good part of the way. Part goes along an old logging path and we initially missed the blaze to turn off of it. After going over a bunch of downed trees, and not seeing blazes, we realized and turned around and got back on the right path. Keep an eye out and you will see the blue blazes eventually, which lead you to the falls. At the top of the hill by the falls, it looks like there are two paths down, but the path to the left stops a few yards into the trees, so stick to the right to get to the bottom of the falls. The trail markings stop here, but if you continue down stream, there is another incredible fall just below the pool that Angel Falls dumps into. Definitely wear waterproof boots as there is a bit of mud and numerous stream crossings. Hiking poles or a stick are helpful too because it gets steep in spots. The hike in was worth it.

Great hiking. A little steep, muddy and rocky in places and a few fallen trees to go around. Otherwise, it was a nice hike. The bugs were really getting bad towards the end of the hike.

I have done this trail about once a year for the past maybe 6 or 7 years now and it is worth it every time. The falls are beautiful and the views from the top are just as beautiful. Some of the trail going up is steep so it is a tiring hike. I don't recommend going back on the blue trail because it doesn't really exist anymore, it is better to just turn around from the top. However, if you wanna get pics from the bottom the blue trail will get you there, but then it stops so from there the best way to go is follow the creek back to the start. At one point the creek splits you wanna go left, trust me.

Cool trail. Follow the yellow and red blazes on the trees up the Loyalsock Tail. When you get to whats considered the top of the hill, you will soon see a Red circular sign on a tree telling you to go left to Angel Falls. Follow the Blue Dotted signs. The bugs were fierce on 4/12/2020. The falls weren't flowing as much as I'd have expected after rain the day prior. Will go back one day. One...and watch out for a few widow maker branches hanging from trees,

Easy walking for the most part. I went with my boyfriend and one of his friends and we had fun. Some spots are a little scary walking, because of it being so narrow, but overall a good experience.

Really enjoy this trail. Have done it several times. Unfortunately haven’t caught it at the right time yet with lots of water but still beautiful even with a lil bit of water. Easy to follow although there is a point at which the trail veers right up the mountains and can be missed if ur not looking but even if u miss it just keep walking straight on the old logging path and you will run right into the side of the falls. U can hear before u see it. Slightly more physically demanding and wouldn’t recommend for small children. Have fun and be safe!

I like how the climb up the Loyalsock Trail is in intervals with the old railroad grade and logging roads in between. The falls were almost dry, even though we got a good bit of rain yesterday. Trail is well maintained and enjoyable. I’ll come back in early springtime when those falls are rip roaring!

other reviews mentioned this being a hard trail to follow, I don't think it was at all. it was very well marked you just have to pay attention to the markers. also note it's the loyalsock trail to blue trail, if you record your trail make sure you follow the blue markers as the person who recorded this decided to take a shortcut and go down a very washed out, pine needle covered embankment. definitely visit after a heavy rainfall, the fall was not full but still impressive in summer.
