I have traveled this trail numerous times while running or cycling. The trail runs along the TulpohockenCreek and is relaxing and scenic. The trail is mostly flat so I would say it is easy without elevation .

Beautiful trail. I work nearby and go once a week or so. I love how convenient it is to work/school/etc, and yet being on the trail feels like you are so far away from all that.

Listed as moderate. Is easy. Flat gravel path. Not so much a hike as a scenic walk. Well maintained, nice views of the water. Did the entire out and back of 9 miles. Saw mixture of walkers and mountain bikers. I used this trail to help break in new boots. It’s a nice trail suitable for anyone. If looking for a moderate hike, this probably isn’t it.

Great place to bring kids of all ages. Trail is flat and fast. It runs along the creek. Well manicured and heavily traveled.

Lovely ride. The trail is mostly flat and shady and passes under a covered bridge at the heritage center where there are bathrooms and a snack bar. The main drawback was the mosquitoes. Bring your repellent!

A nice trail to go running on. For the people that like more adventure kind of boring. A nice trail along the water

Walked from Gring's Mill to Reber's Bridge and back…..six miles round trip. Very flat, scenic trail that follows the Tulpehocken Creek and the old Union Canal. Good for walking, running, biking…..

Went out for a nice stroll when I was in the area. The trail is well travelled, but most everyone is courteous enough to let the bikers go by and give a friendly wave. Found a nice spot under an overpass to eat my lunch atop a 20-some foot rock, then read along the creekside. Pretty sweet place if you just want to have an easy walk and chill for a bit.

Took Grings Mill trail to Blue Marsh. Grings Mill is heavily trafficked with walkers and families. Once we reached Blue Marsh we were the only ones on the trails. Biked the mountain trail near the damn. Great Single track. I recommend this one!
