This is not a hard trail, and its really not a loop either. Although it was a beautiful well kept place, it was a let down, expecting a good challenge and finding only another rails to trails.

Not a hard trail at all! I'm overweight with a blown out knee and I easily made this trail round trip. Well shaded, up hill climb is nice and cold from the creek bed....

The turning point of the loop is a private owned area now with cameras, and we lost the path after that. It was a great hike leading up to that though, and we enjoyed the beautiful waterfall that was a little off the trail.

started at Rock Furnace. Really great views along the run and actually tried my best to stick closer to it than the paved/gravel trail. phone died half way through so only made it 2miles in, but there are markers to let you know how far you've gone, foot bridges, and distinctively marked trails that veer off from time to time. will definitely come back. My dog loved it, but a saw a few others with dogs on a weekday, so keep dog safe on a leash.

I walk my dog here on a regular basis. Great trail. Only complaint is that there are no trash cans so dog waste must be carried out with you.

Really nice user-friendly multi-modal trail system, close to Pittsburgh. Follow the blue blazes for some good hillside hiking, or just follow the gravel trail along the river for a nice walk in the woods. Very well set-up for biking also. Best part is the proximity to Pittsburgh, and easy to find with plenty of parking in the main lot.
