Amazing trail. It did get a little difficult because we saw no trail markers but over all good time.

first 4 miles was boring. then you get to a vista followed by some streaming water. trail gets lost after that so i had to turn back around. not marked at all.

Hiked this trail on 10/13. Made a right upon entering the loop and we reached an impassable point when we got down to the stream at the furthest point. The trail was no longer marked and we weren’t sure where to go along the bank. Tried crossing the stream and going down toward the Lehigh, but rain and downed trees made it difficult. Going away from the Lehigh upstream seemed equally impossible. Never got to the actual waterfall. Nice scenic overlook of the gorge about 4.5 miles in before descending to the stream, although some trees obstructed the view. The first 2.3 miles of this map is along a wide gravel trail on hunting grounds. Fairly sure you can drive your car on that if the gates are open, as they were Saturday. Didn’t do any of the side trails, although some may lead to more scenic views. I’d go again, make a left upon entering the loop and see where that goes.

Not well marked and eventually became impassable. The lower trail is mostly access roads that lead to a decent overlook and waterfall area. Avoid the loop section marked on this trail.
