We loved it. Although I'm assuming it's rated easy because it's flat. However it's long and I would consider it quite rocky and marshy in most areas through out the treck. We liked the Narrowness of the trail the most and not heavily popular.

Easy hike out and back. The dogs loved every minute of it. We went at a good time during the week so it wasn’t crowded. What an amazing site to see all the boulders.

Nice trail through the woods. Some of it gets a little tight through the rhododendrons but it was very peaceful and relaxing. Boulder field was unique.

Definitely a unique experience climbing on the boulders. Fire roads made it easily accessible while staying in the park.

must see if you are in the area. somehow drove right to it and and explored before swimming in hawk falls. you really don't see a boulder field every day, it really is something.

We started at the top of the trail. Parked at the Boulder Field lot, crossed the boulders, and started the trek. It is slowly downhill the whole walk down therefore it's slowly uphill the way back. Uneven terrain. Rocky in areas, narrow passages, some trees to crawl over. Beautiful, thick woods. We crossed with a few people on the 3.5 mile each way trip, mostly serene though. Not much to see other than the foliage on this trail and the field.

If you start at the top, you can follow this trail all the way to 534 then cross over and hook up with Hawk Falls Trail.

The trail is all rocks (surprise!) and roots. It's woodsy. I got to the boulders, said "Eh" and started walking back. It's OK, just not astounding. Worth the exercise, though.

This place is fun. There are picnic tables to have lunch. I brought my friends kids there and they had a blast climbing around. I've also been here for Girl Scouts. There are trails on the back side of the field that go into the woods.

We hiked the boulder field, not the road leading to it. We drove in and parked. The field itself was awesome to hike. Wear shoes with good grip.

15 acres of boulders everywhere!!! Can't do much, gotta be careful, but very interesting to see.

Boulder field is a natural wonder and good to teach kids about geology. The hike itself is bland with little scenic interest.

We visit here often and then hit the lake nearby to take a dip. Watch out for snakes as there are several along the outlying areas of the field and some are venomous. The lake is a short drive back but very nice for a cool down and there's a concession stand and clean bathrooms and showers. It's best to do this on cooler days as the field is big and blazing hot

Very easy hike out and back. The boulders are pretty cool once you get out there, especially if you've never seen anything like that before. I did this trail on a semi-rainy day and had a great time.

Very flat. Astound your friends with knowledge on how the boulder field formed by boning up on the science before you go. Hawk falls (1/2 mile) is worth the hike for a picture. It can be a little mucky in parts, but in the winter its nice.

I'm not a big fan of out and back trails but the boulder field was worth the journey. The trail was very rocky so I recommend boots.

I hiked this trail last year starting form 534, however this time we biked to the boulder field, carried our bikes over, and then walked/half road down the trail. We didn't feel like going back the 5 or so miles it took to come in. It was a bumpy bike ride.

I personally think the boulder field is pretty lame other than jumping around on rocks for a few minutes. The trail to it is nicely shaded majority of the way. This time it seemed to have more trees down across the path. I also didn't remember it being as rocky in the beginning as last time. All in all a decent median length trail.

Road to get to it needs work (i.e., holes, narrow, few more markings). Very interesting and educational place.

Very cool the field is neat. Make your way across the field to get to the trail behind it. Go straight across to the woods you'll see an opening and then the trail. Check out shades of death trail off the highway on the way there for a super quick but scenic trail. Only complaint I have about Boulder field is the poorly developed gravel road to get there. Not fun. But the trail was.

One of the great hiking and camping parks in the NE PA region. Everything from the Shades of Death Trail to the Boulder field, to the beach and rec facilities are a great little getaway trip.

Done this one twice. Once in the summer and recently after a snowfall the night before. This is my favorite trail at hickory run. It's especially enjoyable in the winter after snow. I wouldn't venture out into the field though, footing can be tough and you can't see the gaps between the boulders.
