The trail is tougher then it sounded, then again I’m only 6 months out of ACL reconstruction. The first mile is the Hawk Falls trail, that was fantastic. Once you leave and enter to the Orchard trail there’s not a lot to see and all you hear is the PA Turnpike’s Northeast Extension.

My family and I really enjoyed this trail. It has woods, a river and open trails. It was a really pretty hike. We took the Hawk Falls entrance which is a more crowded path, but there was only one other couple on Orchard when we broke off. We waded in the water at Hawk Falls as a reward at the end, so bring river shoes!

This trail is great if you want to see the beautiful Hawk Falls but then want to escape the crowds for a walk in the woods. It's mixed terrain with some well traveled wide trails, flat back roads and narrow steep wooded sections.
