Nice little hike but half of it is on the road. Therefore I don’t agree with kid friendly.

The view at parking lot 2 is absolutely gorgeous, and it's the starting point of the loop if you follow the directions from the All Trails app. There is no Camelback loop trail actually. The loop contains the South Trail and a mile or so of road to get back to the parking lot. There are only signs for the South Trail. The route on the map is accurate. If you record your hike in the All Trails app, you can follow the GPS directions to complete the hike. We did it in July, and there were lots of bugs, I would recommend bringing bug spray.

the 'upper' South trail is well cropped providing a large path, while the 'lower' South trail is not. i pulled about 20-30 ticks off of my pants today. not exaggerating either. ugh. love the upper trails though, great hiking prep for the AT.

A good hike that we enjoyed with a 5 and 8 yr old. We drove to the top of Camelback and parked in lot#2. We found a nice trail map and followed the signs to Vista Tr., which lead us to South Tr. We branched off South Tr. to North Tr. to end our 3.5 mile hike. It was a nice combination of easy decline, rocky trails and the end of North Tr. had a more challenging steep climb. The trail wasn’t that well marked and even with the trial map, we had to make a few guesses on the route to take. Overall a nice hike but a little confusing on the path at points.

Nice, laid back hike! Great views, a few different trails nearby also worth checking out.

Since you can drive to the top, that took a bit away from the majesty of this hike opportunity. Well maintained, nice and easy track. I wouldn't call this moderate. Probably wouldn't do this hike again.

Great view! Trails a little short, but it's good for a day hike. Lots of fresh wild berries in the summer

Not accessible! There's a sign of "Road Closed" and no further information available. So we turned back.

beautiful views absolutely loved it. I just wish we could have at least seen deer or something. I would come back anytime.

Great hike. Beautiful views. Bring charcoal and burgers for an after hike meal. Nice grilling stations set up near the parking areas. If you are a camper this is a great area to spend some time in.

I lost an important necklace on the trail yesterday, Oct 31st. Gold chain with a diamond pendant. Offering a reward if you find it. Write back on this trail.

My husband and I hiked the north and part of the south trails. A lot of the trails crisscross each other so we got sidetracked. We hiked in the morning and the bugs were crazy and normally bugs leave me alone - spray yourself. Pretty trails, some steep parts, some flat parts, overall a nice mix of terrain.

Great views! I did part of the South trail and it was very easy, more like a nature walk than a hike. I wish I could have done more but by the time I found a trail it the the middle of the trail. I was confused at first bc this app doesn't seem to take me to accurate starting points and doesn't have the map for the specific trails. If you get lucky when you get there, you can get a trail map. I didn't come across a map until the end of the hike when I passed a different parking lot but having a map will make my next visit better.

Nice ride to the top of Big Pocono. The view is very nice. Good for bird watching.

Came across this on a NASCAR trip & underestimated the grade and length. Make sure u bring water & lunch too... But the views were great & the trail was well maintained....
