A great hike along some streams and with water falls State Game Lands #13 Start on the trail along Heberly Run past Twin Falls and Lewsi Falls, at the fork in the stream take the right hand fork. As you climb follow the trail as it leaves the stream, goes along the crest of the hill and joins Sullivan branch, follow down stream to where it joins Big Run and back to where you left your car. The hike starts by walking the West stream not Grassy Hollow Road. Once you get to the East side be careful when you are coming up to Ore Run. There is a "road" that you can continue on that brings you out to the main road. You can bailout on this road or you can continue to follow the stream at this point. If you choose to follow the stream you are going to see some amazing water falls. Once you get down to Pigeon Run you will see a beautiful waterfall on your left. Continue for about .25 miles and on your left you will see a small clearing. Follow that clearing up to the top of the access road to finish the last leg of the hike.

So the trail is very poorly marked as is noted in other reviews. About 2 1/2 miles in there are orange blazes you would be best to follow those until they run out on a bigger trail because trying to follow The all trails map is only going to have you off trail and bushwhacking for at least 40% of the trail. It’s definitely worth it because of the falls in the beautiful forest but a little frustrating that it took an extra hour and ended up being a 9 mile hike because of the extra bushwhacking. This is one of the few times that the all trails app was not terribly helpful.

Didn’t quite find the trail... there was a state game lands road that we stayed on for a few miles before turning back. Saw 2 nice waterfalls.

Trail was very poorly marked, spent majority of the time bushwhacking and back tracking. Waterfalls and scenery was beautiful though.

We started at Sullivan Falls and went up the trail to Ore Run and back down bushwhacking on and off to see the falls along the way. If you stay on trail, you will see falls but will miss quite a few. The trail is rocky in sections and a lot of debris branches. This way allowed us to see all the falls on that side without walking the road.

The trail was nice but unclear. I followed Google Maps to the first right past Jamison City Hotel and followed the road until I parked at the first Game Lands parking area on the left. I continued up the road past another parking area and then to a bigger one which led to presumably Sullivan Falls. Just beyond the parking a double track trail veers left off the road. This is the trail. It is relatively easy to follow at this point but has no blazes. About a quarter of the way, just after a stream crossing over a waterfall, an orange blaze appears, but you won't see more for a bit longer. For the middle portion of the trail the blazes appear regularly, but you really have to search for them to keep on the trail in some areas. The blazes disappear once you begin the final descent. You will cross one more waterfall and then walk up to a clearing and head down an access road, just like in the description. I followed this road all the way back into town and again turned by the hotel and walked up the road to my car. I have no idea where the turn was supposed yo be. With the extended walk on the road, my loop totaled over 10 miles. Keep exploring, Mr. Nutters

Just got back from hiking this trail today. The trail was definitely really cool, but it was very hard to find. What we did was we put the directions into the gps, but the problem is that when they told you you were there, there wasnt any place to park. We ended up driving to Sullivan Falls and parking there. From here we hiked further up the road until we found the trailhead and then proceeded to cross the river. We weren't really sure if we did the right trail, but we had fun and it was very pretty. We didn't see any orange trail markers like others on here say they saw so im not sure if there was a different trail we were supposed to do or not but we found our way around fine.

Excellent hike with three outstanding main waterfall sites. There are additional smaller waterfalls on this hike as well. The trail was somewhat challenging but not too demanding. On the plateau, fortunately, the trail was well marked with orange blazes but you have to pay attention or you will lose them. Otherwise the trail is fairly obvious. We had the trail all to ourselves but for two others. Since we started on the west side, we had to ford the creek to start. That required removing our hiking boots and hiking up our pants which was actually pretty fun with the cold water!!

Awesome trail! We found this trail on AllTrails but the directions were not the best. We found a good guide here (http://www.midatlantichikes.com/sgl13.htm) that list the exact route and how to navigate the falls. The hike starts by walking the West stream not Grassy Hollow Road. Once you get to the East side be careful when you are coming up to Ore Run. There is a "road" that you can continue on that brings you out to the main road. You can bailout on this road or you can continue to follow the stream at this point. If you choose to follow the stream you are going to see some amazing water falls. Once you get down to Pigeon Run you will see a beautiful waterfall on your left. Continue for about .25 miles and on your left you will see a small clearing. Follow that clearing up to the top of the access road to finish the last leg of the hike.

It starts and ends with road walking, but the waterfalls 1/3 and 2/3 of the way are worth it. The second one you have to veer off onto another trail for a short distance to see it, as its behind a parking area with no swimming signs. The north part is hard to follow as it is not a well beaten path, just keep looking for horse prints in the mud. Definitely worth the trip.

Nice trail - good combo of waterfalls and some elevation gain but not unmanageable. There are nettles on many parts of the trail in the summer so wear long pants!!

The trail is like a wide and easy to follow but not blazed. It begins just after the second parking area on the left. We used my Garmin GPS which surprisingly had the trail on the topo 24k map. I live nearby, but never heard anyone mention the trail. After all the recent rain the many creeks and waterfalls were spectacular. You do have to cross many small streams and one larger stream. Some had logs to cross, others we just rock hopped. The last stream to get back to the car required that I remove my socks and boots to get across, but with my trekking poles it was no problem. alternatively, you could walk an extra mile down the road to cross a bridge the back the extra mile or so to get back to your vehicle. Somewhere around mile 5 there is the remains of an old small building. Only the stone fireplace is still intact but it is an interesting sight. On top we had a cover of light snow, but it was just wet below. I will definitely hike this trail again.
