Like in previous comments, the tails are very easy to follow and there is a posted map at various points along the trails. The paths do not have blazes to follow if you prefer these types of markings.

Beautiful trail with lots of different things to do and see. Gorgeous overlooks of the water and forest as well as stunning rock formations. Very good hike, definitely gets you working. You can pick up multiple different trails based on what you're looking for.

All of the trails in the Jakes Rocks area are well-maintained. Many are aimed at mountain bikers. Be on the alert if you're trail running or hiking, as you may need to stand to the side. Be aware that the trail as mapped here is not labeled "Jakes Rocks trail" but is a combination of several trails, including Coal Knob, Cornplanter, and Devil's Drop. You can cut a section off of Devil's Drop with a quick crossover. Study the map at the trailhead and/or bring along GPS. Otherwise there are no directions to show the loop. Cell service up here is very spotty and will eat up your cellphone battery.

Very easy, short trail with a breath taking view! Much more beautiful in person than in pictures. Nice little area that also has restrooms and picnic tables.

Super easy trail with great overlooks! This is a well beaten path and would be great for a picnic. There are also bathrooms in the parking area.
