We started at the parking lot trailhead going up a long gradual uphill, plateau at the top is a forest road, and then there is a long steeper downhill. We used the road to walk back to the car. A lot of coyote tracks! Scenic trail with a brook and a lot of Hemlock. If checking off lists is your thing, this checks off Hyner State Park, Bucktail State Park Natural Area, Sproul State Forest.. and a section of the Donut Hole Trail!

There were a few downed trees and some water on the trail due to the recent rain. Nothing was impassable, but waterproof shoes are recommended. The yellow blazes that lead to the vista (more a window in my opinion) are very faded, but the trail is decently easy to follow. The downhill section can get steep so it doesn't take long if you use your momentum. Enjoy the mountain laurel along the trail and be on the look out for lots of little critters! Keep exploring, Mr. Nutters

Steep inclines to kick off end of mile 1, start of mile 2 then a nice good trail.... until you start downhills - careful of those slippery rocks! Would totally do this trail again!

A beautiful PA mountain trail. A bit more rugged in spots than expected but very passable. I definitely recommend hiking boots/shoes, something with a sturdy sole for rocks. Not too much in the way of vistas but beautiful PA mountain forests. Careful of rattlesnakes sunny themselves. Saw two at the natural gas shallow well head. A great hike.

Great trail. We saw two raccoons, two rattlesnakes, two deer, and one orange salamander.

Beautiful mountain trail. Steeper than expected without much vista view when in full summer. But still pretty with all the flowers and fungi.

The scenery is gorgeous. The bugs are pretty terrible in July, but that's hardly the trail's fault. The path does get difficult to follow towards the beginning of the switch-backs (it's easy to get off course). Also, it's only a 4.1 mile trail.

First to Review

Beautiful, peaceful hike. Did not encounter one person on the trail. Bring walking sticks for the up and down. Loop is only 4 miles (not 7 miles as listed on app).
