This trail is relatively pedestrian if done as an out & back - very mild grade, not much to see, fire tower is closed, and you end in a parking lot. However I did not (and I doubt many others do) stick to the out & back route. Turned it into a loop using the Horse-Shoe trail and took a tour past both lakes and the Hopewell Furnace. French Creek Park has a great trail system with some gorgeous lake views and significant history. Pick up a map, get out there and explore! Sticking to any one trail here will be underwhelming.

Gorgeous trail. 10 miles of fun. Nice views of the lake and good people watching around the pool area. Also, saw dogs paddle boating. 10/10.

The first trail I hiked in PA, so it holds sentimental value. Start at Hopewell Lake, go up to the fire tower and then come back around the Horseshoe Trail.

This is a legit moderate hike, my 9 and 6 were challenged but no real issue. sadly you can't climb the fire tower. 8/10, good hike, nothing special in terms of scenery other than lovely forest! enjoy

First to Review

Wasn’t that impressed with this trail, especially given that it effectively ends at a parking lot.
