Moderate trail when not overlapping other trails. Be prepared for some drops in elevation, especially near places where trail is not marked very well.

love the trail but this has been one of the most confusing trail to navigate. There are barely any signs especially on intersections and midway through, the color code on the trees disappears. The maps doesn't seem to coordinate with the trail in certain areas. we basically had to second guess and walk the purple back and forth until we took an unmarked trail and finally after stopping some hikers we were able to get back to the green loop.

I found navigation a little frustrating. I ended up starting at the Tee Pee Loop Sign which actually seemed to be the blue line based on spray paint on the trees. We followed it to the perpendicular crossing with purple line. Then doubled back about 75 yards and dropped down on what I believe was green line. Ran into the waterfall and there is a pic nic bench there. Would be great to pack a lunch to. Then tried to follow the green line back toward the tee pee trail head. But about 150 yards down stream of the waterfall (beside the old rusty vehicle frame) the trails get pretty messy with no clear indication of how to continue on the green line. Maybe someone that goes there often could take some green paint down to that area for newbies to the area.

Pretty easy hike and a pleasant get away from the city. Some great playgrounds and picnic areas around for those who like duh things.

Great trail. Gets a little confusing with no blazes down in the valley, but look around enough you can find where your going. Ill be back to do the other trails in the area

Great trail, with plenty of canopy coverage. It's hard to believe you're just 15 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. I took the green trail with a few little detours that added up to 2.9mi. The waterfall is small, but a nice place to cool off.

There are some places where the blazes are confusing, but the journey is fun.

Fun hike. Easy for the kids. Path was not very clearly marked at points but we made it and had fun!

The trails were moderately difficult and it's so worth it to see the waterfall but it is so poorly labeled for directions it makes it almost not worth it. Don't even bother going to the park office for the map because the map doesn't even have half of the pavilions and trails labeled. Very confusing!
