Difficult to find and follow the trail from the State Park rd trail head. It runs along the road then on the paved road. Once you get into the woods and to the old oil well pumps the trail is hidden behind the building. For me it’s better to start at the other end of the trail, walk to the road and head back.

Great trail but blazes are the ~exact~ color of fall PA leaves. A couple places where you can get off trail, but all-in-all a nice fall hike!

A little longer than advertised (7.8 m). No water on the trail. Little to see, all wooded hike.

this Trail ended up being a little over six miles. It was fairly well maintained. You can see a few places in my recording where I lost my way, but was easily put back on track. the first mile and a half or so is very rocky and rooty. You will definitely not take your eyes off the trail. the rest of it transitions into much smoother dirt paths, gravel roads, and mowed paths. this is not a very picturesque Trail, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very relaxing and just nice to be out and about.

I did this trail like a year back. Based of the reviews I dont think it's gotten any better. Was way overgrown and not marked very well. Not a fun time and my car ended up getting stuck in the mud.

This trail is really enjoyable on the northern loop near Preston, but be sure to bring a good walking stick, long pants and bug spray, the spiders are plentiful. Also be aware that there are several trees down on the trail.

I was a little disappointed. It wasn’t well maintained with lots of blowdown trees and kind of dull

Walking

This is a nice walk through the woods that’s challenging but not exhausting. There are some cool historic things to look at like stone foundations, an abandoned water tower, and a recreation of an oil drill site. Lots of migratory birds and white tail deer. The trail is basically a deer path, so wear long pants and bring bug spray.

The trail was pretty overgrown, with a number of trees to climb over or under. a lot of sharp plants on the trail so I regretted wearing shorts. The loop is only at the top of the trail so most of it is really an out and back. we enjoyed the day, but as someone else mentioned, no views to speak of. there is an old stone foundation and old well in one spot and an old silo in the woods a little later. Those were neat.

You will probably not see anyone else on this trail. There are a few trees down so be ready to scramble over some. Wear bug spray. The boat launch at the bottom of the trail is a nice spot to have a picnic and a good halfway point. I love that this trial is so quiet and deep in the woods!

I was very disappointed with this trail. I started at the trailhead, and ended up turning around 2 miles in. Decided to try the other end, and again was very disappointed. Not maintained, and incredibly overgrown which makes for a very unpleasant hike. No scenery whatsoever. Glacier ridge over the bridge is much more my speed. Will not be hiking this trail again.
