Trail head is right off Rt 949. Park off of Corbette Rd. You can also drive to the rocks, but hiking up the trail makes it more worth it! The trail is on the moderate side of easy and is not extremely well marked.

It should definitely be a moderate or hard trail as there are many hills. The trail is overgrown, not many scenic views. But the overlook is beautiful. All the way from Butler Pa

I agree this trail is likely more moderate than easy. It has several very steep sections, is uneven and rocky, and is a bit overgrown. In some places, the trail is a bit overgrown in places, so be sure to wear bug spray. Overall, the view at the top is definitely worth the hike, and there are rest rooms there.

Nice trail, clearly marked, lots of creek crossings and shade. Definitely on the moderate side. My app said 2.2 miles one way.

If you take the Trap Run Loop it is about 2.5 to 3 miles. Not very many sights but a very well maintained and broken in trail.

Great hike, well worth the trip along the creek. Several beautiful streams flowing. Rocks up top are great for climbing, lots of handholds, kids loved it.

Beginning of the trail head is directly across the road from the Shelter/Picnic parking area right before entrance to Clear Creek State Park. Great trail to hike. I've been to Beartown rocks a hundred times from being a child to an adult but never hiked to it. Very rewarding when you reach it. The scenic overlook at Beartown rocks is a must see. Can get busy there at times. I also think this hike is a mixed bag of easy and moderate. Enjoy.

My daughter and I started from the park office to make this hike longer. It was beautiful and well marked. Not as easy as it is described. There is a lot of uphill climbing, fallen trees across the trail and some very slippery, muddy spots. Overall, it is a gorgeous hike. I recommend that they change the EASY to MODERATE though.

Very nice trail. Some of the bridges along the trail are rotted and falling apart though. This would make a great Eagle Scout project for a local scout and would be a great improvement to the trail

This trail is well blazed and was actually quite busy while we were there. I would rate this as a moderate hike due to the moderate incline that seems endless. For at least half a mile it feels like you are climbing a mountain and you will never reach the top. However, the journey is well worth it because the rocks are beautiful. There's plenty of rocks to explore and a beautiful vista overlook from the top of one of them. You can see for miles. I suggest driving to the rocks as there's a parking area and picnic area by the rocks for those who aren't up for the hike. We took the Trap Loop trail on the way back and found it much easier hiking. The descent back into the valley wasn't near as steep as the ascent up the hill. The Trap loop trail is less traveled and provides more privacy. I want to come back and do this trail in the spring as there are thousands of natural rhodedendrons and mountain laurel bushes that will be beautiful when blooming.

Did this hike twice. We parked at clear creek campground and hiked up to the overlook and took the trap loop back down to the campground. Such a great hike.

Very beautiful trail cutting up the northern end of Clear Creek State Park. The Trail is clearly marked and is a moderate climb (as compared to other Pennsylvania woods trails). The Rocks at the top of the hill are beautiful.

Good trail. Very hilly. Make sure you're in shape as the hill that makes up most of the trail is steep.
