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.

Awesome hike. Some roots cause ankle strain. Hiked down yellow and up blue trail. Highly recommended.

I heard of Tucquan Glen for a long time. This trail does not disappoint! It is a beautiful location. But parking is limited. I need to make sure I visit this trail during all four seasons.

Great trail. I recommend taking the yellow blaze trail in from the small parking lot across from the wood crafter's house. Parking is extremely limited so park wisely to help other hikers. Follow the yellow blazes straight through and down the steep grade to the railroad. Cross the railroad bridge and resume on the return following the blue blazes. At one point closer to the return to the parking lot consider crossing the creek and double back to the parking lot. Great views, nice little waterfalls and cool large rock formations makes this a nice quick hike. Spend maybe two hours total. It is steep and rocky in some areas so I would wear stable shoes that protect ankle from rolling. Not recommended for tennis shoes.

Some trails are about the destination, this one is about the journey. Go here if you are looking for tranquility and beauty. While it was the easiest and quicket hike I have done so far, it was also one of the most magical (and fun!) I went when there was autumn foliage and watching the leaves float in the sky was pretty surreal.

Would I go back again? No, solely because it is a nature preservation site, so I do not want to further contribute to the foot traffic. But I am glad I went once and I am very happy I have pictures to remember this trip.

Gorgeous trail. Not suitable for small kids or elderly folks who may have trouble with walking on loose rock or climbing up large clumps of rock.

Top of the creek is easy. it gets more difficult yet much more scenic towards the bottom.

I did this hike with a section of the Conestoga Trail to the Pinnacle. It is a pleasant and very scenic trail with a couple of short steep climbs on the Conestoga Trail.
