The terrain was easy but definitely picked a bad time to try this one. The bugs were in full force and the grass was way too high for the five year old. I am sure that this would make a great fall or winter hike but during those seasons, you would for sure want to wear orange.

Mostly level hike. The trail is pretty much out in the open, so very little shade (best to do this one on a cloudy day). There are several paths off of the main one, but if you stay on the main trail you will have water on both sides of you around 1 mile in. We saw lots of deer, flowers, birds, and trees.

It is a nice trail walk for anyone. It is state game land territory, so if you happen to go during season wear some bright colors to be safe. You never know what could happen.
In n Out with the head and exit one in the same. several very small loops to take all leading back to the original trail a tenth of a mile from the parking area. Great scenery of PA Wetlands. Great for and 2 hour walk or trail run workout.

Nice easy hike. I liked the scenery around it. Some ponds and then a more dense wooded area. Good for a quick 2 hour workout

Schollard's Wetlands was more of a surprise than anything else. Take the trail head on the right side of the road before you find the parking lot on your left, this is the better trail. The trail features a beautiful wetland on the left with a swamp/lake on your right. With an abundance of birds and other life, it really is a scenic heaven. BIRD WATCHERS will love this area! I would recommend this for anyone, as it's better than what the typical review says! Bring bug repellant and a camera, you won't be disappointed!

State game lands. More of an old path than a trail. Wear bug spray. Nothing special.

Schollard's Wetlands offers it's hikers an average hike with not too much excitement. With a decent mileage to hike (roughly 5.8) it basically features you hiking a straight flat path between two open woods/ponds. If your looking for an average day hike to just get out, i would recommend this. If your looking for a more adventurous hike and scenery, then I would tell you that passing on this trail is the wisest choice.
