Not too hard. A few steep hills but nothing serious. Amazing views

Dog friendly with access to fourmile creek. The creek has some small waterfalls and the trails have some other scenic spots. I gave it 4 stars because it is heavily populated and parking is inconvenient. The parking areas are usually full. You can park on campus by getting a parking pass.

Super easy to find off of Cooper Road or drop in from the Penn State Behrend Campus.
I rate it at a 3 because it is heavily used- which is opposite of what I am looking for when I get out into the woods.
Lots of exposed roots so when it is wet it can be quite slippery.
Nice walks along fourmile creek- which is also quite slippery as it is all shale.

This was a nice shorter hike. It follows a creek and there are a lot of little offshoot trails that bring you closer to the edge to view the creek. That being said, it is a gorge, so watch your step near the edge. Some of the lower elevation offshoots bring you right to the edge where you could have a seat and put your feet in the water. When I went in the late afternoon during the summer there were quite a few people out, which I didn’t mind because it was my first time on the trail and the offshoot trails can make it hard to follow. The start of this trail (about the first mile) is wide and well used and I saw several people with small children and even jogging strollers, so it would be a good place to bring the family if you’re visiting other Erie, PA attractions. Overall a great little jaunt.
