HikingGreat!

5 stars mostly for the incredible view of Ohiopyle from opening near Tharp Knob picnic area. The rest of the trail is decent and easy hike, just doesn't change too much along the way. Also, it seems only the portion between Great Gorge trail intersection and Jonathan Run is considered Kentuck Trail. According to the signs, the southern segment down to Tharp Knob is actually Betty Knox Trail.

HikingGreat!

We made an over 9 mile loop out of this hike. It was a fairly easy trail and we also walked along the GAP for a while. We followed a side trail down to the river and had lunch. There were so many pretty views.

great trail and not too challenging for people in better shape. The uphills about killed me but it would have been a lovely death in a beautiful place. great reward at the end with the creek and waterfalls.

We hiked this 2 days ago and decided to cut off the last 1.6 miles to go a little easier on our younger hikers. The length is a bit off. Starting at the trailhead at the picnic area to Jonathan Run trail and back was 7.26 miles according to my suunto. We didnt head off trail at anytime. The incline will definitely wake up your legs!! Nicely kept trail some muddy spots but not terrible.

I went from Kentuck campground down to the passage. 2 waterfalls, upper & lower Jonathan can be accessed from this trail. Both have unmarked trails leading to them. just look when you hear rushing water.
