Not a good trail. Not taken care of at all. Trees down, tall grass, barely any trail markings.

HikingGreat!

Good workout. We did the red blazed trail first. Did not use app just followed the blazes. Blazes for both trails were easy to follow. Only saw two other hikers. Lots of wildlife, snake, deer, grasshoppers, dragonflies. Good hike if you’re short on time.

All Trails app does not follow the blazes. Be careful on the red blaze loop as it is not marked how to get back to the lollypop stick. We had to back track a bit but you can see it if looking at the map on the app. The Rockville Bridge can be seen on the red blaze trail and the Statue of Liberty on the Susquehanna River on the yellow blaze trail. I would rate this Trail as easy plus due to the steady incline.

We did the yellow trail down to view the mini Statue of Liberty, then the red trail clockwise to view the bridge. I recommend following the blazes, not the map on All Trails. Following the map took us on an old trail or deer path. It was marked at each end by ribbons, but it isn't being kept up currently. The blazed trails are wide and easy, minus a few sections with loose rocks. Another couple was hiking it with very young children.

Good hike! It was mostly shaded and not too strenuous. Pretty views, but a little grassy at times.

Steep inclines and declines in places, but not too much for my boys to handle.

Had a great time on this trail. We followed the red blazes. It was a steady uphill climb but not too hard for our kids ages 8,6,and 2. We saw lots of wildlife including a turtle,frogs, and butterflies. There is also a nice view of the river at the top.

Red trail is well marked but ignore the app when it says your off trail because you aren’t.

Great trail for a quick day hike. Elevation change is easy to handle; even for 9 year old. The view from the top is decent but not great. We took the RED trail loop.

Took the wife and dog. Fairly moderate hike. The trail is well marked but pretty rocky. The ascent is pretty difficult. I was using an altimeter and only got to 219'. Not sure how this says 441'. It did not feel like we climbed that far. Nice view of the Susquehanna at about the 0.7 mile marker.

Our first Hiking Trail since moving to PA. The markers along the Trees are clear and easy to follow. My son and I enjoyed sitting on the bench and looking at the view before heading back down. We will be back as we have not hiked in years.

Hiking

Very well marked and easy to follow with a nice view and bench at the top. Other reviews said to follow pink ribbons on trees but we just followed the red marked trail and it was a big loop that takes you back to the beginning of the trail, exactly like the picture on the map at the trailhead - but if you go by what the app says, it does look like you’re off the trail when you stick to the red markers. So ignore the map on the app and just stick to the red markers for a nice loop.

HikingOff trail

The trail was great up to where the loop begins, then the red blazes take you on a trail due West instead of NW. The trail that goes NW and completes the loop is not marked by blazes at all, but you can find it by following the pink ties on various trees, if they’re still there. We had to do some off-trail hiking to get back on track, but it wasn’t too difficult. The views are spectacular!

The first part of the trail is great, but once you reach the loop the red blazes take you due west instead of NW. The trail that goes NW is not marked by blazes but you can find it by following pink ties on the trees, if they’re still there. We had to do some off-trail hiking to get ourselves back on course but it wasn’t too difficult.
