You'll begin by crossing a small stream on a bridge - to the left of the Tucquan Glen sign. It's an easy hike with part of it along an old logging road. Follow the blue blazes. You'll pass the remains of an old homestead. The gorge will narrow as you get closer to the halfway point and you'll have some beautiful waterfalls over huge rocks. At the halfway point you'll reach the railroad tracks. Turn right along the tracks and cross the bridge over Tuquan Creek. After another 100 feet or so the trail will head sharply uphill on the right.

Went with 10 children between 6 and 10 years old. It was an awesome adventure. Next time we would have had the children walk down the whole creek one way and walk out the other. Just a great place. Parking was very hard to come by and seems that the neighbors really are annoyed by the hikers not always being considerate. I hope to come back to the place many more times.

Best place I have ever hiked in PA

Nice little adventure hike! Gently rolling waters, rocky scrambles, fallen trees across the creek to practice your balance, and a few deep places to take a dip. Use the [blue] trail (start on yellow for a bit first) all the way to the railroad... From the RR take a right and walk about 500ft down the tracks across the bridge, and then take [yellow] back... gets you the best of both worlds.

This hike is beautiful and follows the creek the entire way to the Susquehanna river. There are multiple trails that follow this route. You can avoid steep areas by crossing over the creek to the trail on the opposite side. The waterfalls are beautiful throughout the glen, surrounded by rhododendron. At the bottom of the trail you will reach the railroad tracks. If you cross over the tracks and down the embankment, you'll come to the river. When I was there it was shallow and smooth bottomed and I was able to swim out quite a ways before it ever got deep. There was minimal current. It was more like a lake. A great place for a swim. Obviously, my experience may not be consistent depending on river levels. Use caution as the river is unpredictable and can be dangerous.

We started on the yellow trail and returned on the blue. While parts were flat dirt and quite easy, roughly half involved scrambling up and over rocks. Our 4 year old loved it and we all found it beautiful. But a simple easy walk, it was not.

Enjoyable fairly easy path. The trail takes you along a creek that takes you to the Susquehanna River.
