Beautiful, dynamic and rustic trail through Allegheny National Forest. Pretty well marked with many changes in scenery. The trail varies from very well groomed to long stretches of roots and rocks. A really great trail that features a backpack/boat-in only campground.

BackpackingGreat!

Great trail and not too difficult. Hiked counterclockwise as others have suggested. Spent the night at Morrison Campground and I highly recommend it! When leaving the campground the trail was a little difficult to follow due to many missing blazes. Trail was rerouted around rimrock and added 0.1 miles plus a little elevation.

Very nice and challenging hike. It took a friend and myself over 4 hours to do because of two rerouting signs. Unfortunately we couldn’t get close enough to the water, but it was still worth it. Next time I’ll prepare myself for all of the snakes!

Pleasant hike, we took the recommendations of many reviewers here and went counterclockwise. The ferns here were definitely a huge highlight! A few trees have been blown down into the trail as of 9/19 and there’s some spots that are confusing where the trail markers aren’t clear or very far between. Definitely a great hike!

looking for someone who lost some very important items, we hiked everything we could cary out of the woods after staying with the items for some time. but when we found them they looked like they had already been dug through. if the items belong to you call the bradford state police and ask for my phone number. I have reported the items as found.

BackpackingGreat!Over grownRockyScramble

Great hike. Definitely challenging parts. The declines are unforgiving, and the inclines are constant. The sustainable reroute is tough on the feet. Beautiful forests to gaze at; especially the ferns. Make sure to peep the Princess Pines growing alongside the trail. Less well maintained than other trails in Allegheny, but worth the visit.

HikingGreat!

Really great trail for a day hike. We went off trail onto an XC trail once we got close to the road leading to Rim rock overlook. Then, we detoured to the overlook for lunch. It should be a marked part of the trail!

Caution: I have AT&T and I had zero cell service this entire hike. Download the maps, or whatever, bc once you’re out there without cell service, you’re really out there without any cell service or GPS! But, sure, this trail did the job! It’s a solid “moderate,” with the challenging parts coming one after another sometimes, but... there’s nothing really else to talk about. Scenery was fairy pretty, I guess. Some larger rock outcrops. But largely... kinda just hard and boring. Lol you’ve gotta keep your eyes peeled for the markers! I missed a couple and got a little turned around.

BackpackingGreat!

We hiked this trail as beginners. I will say maybe not the best trial to start with as a beginner. (I’m pretty sore) The first half of the hike (go in counter clockwise) wasn’t much to see other than trees and ferns. The second half is GORGEOUS!! The creek you walk along is breathtaking. We camped down by the lake, and that view was amazing.

Backpacking

Wonderful backpack in a changing environment as loop follows counter-clockwise. Was surprised to be heading UPhill at about the 3 mile mark. Figured we were on an alternate route and then saw the sign indicating the trail was rerouted for "sustainable and scenic" reasons. No matter - we enjoyed the forest and the big moss covered boulders. We camped along the shore and then headed up the eastern trail. Some steep sections that challenged us, but the scenary was stunning as we gazed up the creek at several places. Unfortunately, some people had completely trashed a few inland campsites near the creek. One camp even left clothes, towels, a fold up table (?!?) and of course beer cans and cheap cigar boxes. Too much for my daughter and I to carry out without being prepared. I saw no hikers on Sunday - just one mountain biker. And no hikers on Monday.
