Not muddy for 99% of the hike as of 4/5 and kept in great condition with no natural obstacles. Be aware that you will be able to hear the road and cars for most of this hike.

This is a nice half-day trail with primarily uphill climbing to start and mostly downhill halfway through. Be sure to swing by Baughman’s Rock (a great overlook!) before heading back down. It’s about 0.2 miles off the mapped trail but there are local signs directing you to the overlook.

Pretty nice moderate hike, the view at Baughman Rock was amazing. Only downside was at times the path split and there weren’t signs and it got very muddy at the end of the hike.

This was pretty awesome! We ended up taking Baughman trail first, which I think it’s the best route. It was 2.5 miles to get to Baughman Rock, then Sugar Loaf was a nice decent to get pack to the parking lot. Not to many people on the trail, but Ohiopyle was bumping on the return.

Fun trail from Ohiopyle main town center up to Baughman Rock. The overlook was beautiful. I was disappointed to reach the “payoff” from the trek uphill to emerge from the woods to find it crowded with other people that drove and parked at the overlook. I prefer a hike with a view that rewards the effort of the hike. A beautiful day and great hike.

Pretty decent view at Baughman Rock, definitely a harder trail.

Be sure to detour for the overlook at Baughman Rock — the view is worth it!

I got a little lost in the mountain biking area, but this trail is much quieter compared to the trails near the River.

Easy hike made it nice to focus on the beauty of the woods. Made a little lunch at the overlook.

Fun loop that you can connect to other trails in the park. I did a trail run from the main parking by in town. Trail head was easy to find. Got about 6.5 miles total with adding on the extra bit to the trail head. Some technical sections but runnable.

From the parking lot head toward the bike trail to Confluence. You’ll see the Baughman Rock/Sugarloaf Trail head sign. Start up the Sugarloaf trail (orange blazes). Eventually you’ll get to an intersection of the orange-blazed Sugarloaf Trail, a black-blazed trail, and a red blazed trail. A trail sign would be helpful here. Take the red-blazed trail up to the overlook at Baughman’s Rock. Then it’s a pretty easy downhill all the way back to the parking lot.

Great fall hike. Followed the app. The first mile plus is up hill, but very manageable. Great exercise. Then continued to the look out - Baughman Rock which was an amazing view. Then we double backed and continued across the road and followed the trail back to parking lot. 6 mile loop. Definitely do this trail again!!

Nice wide trail. I did it clockwise and think I'll try it again counterclockwise because I think it would be a better workout. First mile nice steep incline. The rest is very easy. Not well marked. Definitely download map. There is an overlook at Baughman Rock. Not the greatest but something nice.
