Mixed it up...looped fireline into Skyline then down to the railroad along the Lehigh River. 3 miles in all.

I just did a nice easy in and out section, from Rt 534 Hickory Run Trail to the D&L (Rail Road)

This trail loop is probably the best approximation of a fun and easy loop. If camping at the site off of SR 534 take Sand Spring Trail out of the site and make an immeadiate left onto the Blue Trail (1 mile, not available on this site), this will connect to the Pine Hill Trail which you take a right onto and follow it down the hill to the rail tracks. This follows the edge of the park and has some small rock patches and wide fields of fern with lots of older tree canopy coverage. At the rail tracks make a right and then right again up the creek on Sand Spring Trail. This has a gentle slope and dense Rhododendron. Takes about three hours total.

Nice trail. Did the loop clockwise which had a steep but short downhill. Nice meadows and the walk along the stream is nice. Waterfall is a bit of an exaggeration, but still a good walk.

Lovely place with lots of trails and wildlife. Very serene and the beach is also nice. The trails range from easy to difficult. I love deer trail. It's quite beautiful. The trail was a bit humid and there was quite a few nats, but those things are to be expected in the outdoors.

So many trails. Saw a lot of deer and chipmunks. Went to Boulder Field which was very cool. Cant wait to go back again to explore more.

We hiked Hawk Falls Trail. It was a fast hike. The terrain is rocky and uneven but very doable. Wear proper sneakers because the rocks / boulders at the falls are big, some slippery some unstable. The water is about waist deep and so refreshing. There were lots of swimmers so maybe some water shoes and a towel are in order. The walk is only about 10-15 minutes each way.

This park is in a great location especially for those heading from the East visiting PA. Plenty of hiking trails that I would consider easy compared to some in PA. Dog friendly and kids love this park! If you're camping don't forget your tarp! Lots of rainfall in this region.

This Park is very well maintained and has many trails to explore, for all ages and levels of expertise. There are waterfalls, rock formations, magnificent trees and rhododendrons, (when in season), streams, fishing spots, swimming spots, and more. I have been hiking this park for several years and always love returning, in all seasons.

Nice park. Boulder field is fun. I raced my friend across the rocks which was fun. I won because he only ran a few feet and stopped. Not recommended, but anyway it's a nice place to spend the day.

Boulder Field and Shades of Death trails are highlights. Great place to camp.

We hiked Hawk Falls trail and the Boulder Field trail and they were awesome. On the day we went, it was supposed to rain and it did. We were stuck in a downpour for most of the hike. The terrain is easy, good for kids. It can get pretty crowded.

Hawk Falls and the boulder field are really awesome!! The main attractions were a bit crowded the days we went but we managed to find quiet places to sit and enjoy the view. The trails were pretty but the scenery did not vary much. However, it was a nice relaxing hike.

Boulder field worth it but crowded
Excellent snow shoe trail in winter near lake
