It’s a good trail when your looking for something to do. Went after work while in Easton, PA. 20 minute drive. Feel better. Clear head.

This trail was fun, mostly moderate with a one mile stretch of rock scramble toward the top that was pretty fun and challenging! Would recommend!

Good easy to moderate hike. Just enough ups and downs to keep the blood pumping but not overly strenuous. Lots of rocks, watch your footing!

Fun hike. Not strenuous at all. But must be careful walking on the the rocks. Warning: my son was walking along the the ledge, at the peak of the hike but off the trail, and discovered a timber rattlesnake. It didn’t attack but it rattled its tail and startled the crap out of us. So be careful and stick to the trail!

Beautiful trail! But, be prepared if you head onto the actual “Wolf Rocks” leg at the split in the trail, as (probably obviously”) there will be quite a bit of bouldering to reach up to the peak. Highly suggest just looping around the bypass for dogs and small children. But, man, the view at the top is stunning.

Tons of trash/dump at the parking lot and beginning of the trail. Trail is easy to follow and view is nice. Gets extremely busy and parking lot is on the smaller side so you will probably have to park on the side of the road if packed. I wont be returning

Very cool but a few notes: definitely bring a buddy, if you go early in the morning before the sun has had a chance to burn off the morning mist be prepared for the rocks to be SUPER slippery, and make sure your water bottle is secured to your pack (not just in a pocket) so it doesn’t fall to its demise like mine did. Enjoy! PS- Parking is limited.

Rocky is kind of a understatement! Great overlook on the Wolf Rocks - but the trail is just the rocks. Very fun, but I wouldn’t bring your dog or small children.

We did the loop counter-clockwise so didn’t reach the rock scramble until 3 miles in. The trail, up to that point, was somewhat rocky but took us through lush forest. The real fun, if you enjoy that kind of thing, is the rock scramble which continues for about 1/3-mile. It was moderately challenging but also took us to a scenic overview.
