Gorgeous day for hiking this trail. Didn’t see anyone for the 3 hours we hiked. Stopped a lot to take in the views.

Well groomed. Easy to follow. Not much for scenery because it’s thick woods. But def a fun hike

The overlook is blocked by leaves, the view of the pond was obstructed by over growth and the falls were a dribble. I’m sure that in the spring this would be a beautiful hike, but it just wasn’t very picturesque this morning. On the plus side though there was wide verity of wild mushrooms lining the path including some choice edibles.

The gulch itself was very challenging especially with young children. The view would be beautiful if there were a few less trees at the top. overall we as a family enjoyed the challenge. We got 5.5 miles by completely the loop.

Pretty easy trail but I wouldn’t want to reverse and go on Babcock first - the stairs on the LT would be more effort than I wanted to put in on a Tuesday. The terrain was stunning and I loved the streams. Would recommend!

Hiked this mid-July. A bit buggy, had some great spots for the dogs to get water and cool off but as we got closer to the gulch, there was a lot of standing water holes. Hike itself was great and one of my favorites and stayed relatively shaded for much of the hike. We did the loop so we went in on the Long Train (down the stairs) and after making it to the gulch and going beyond to where we were unable to follow/find the trail to the cabin, when back at the trail intersection, we went back via the Babcock trail and once at that parking area, followed the trail back to where we had parked which was about another mile.

easy/moderate trail. definitely recommend LT south and back via Babcock. not a lot of views, but a side trail off babcock to stand pond side. my gps came in at 4.45 miles- i went beyond the devils gulch sign to a neat rock formation before turning around.

We hiked the Babcock trail to the long trail, up to devils gulch and back north on the long trail to the parking lot. It was a great trail, though my trail book wrongly indicated the elevation gain so we were a little surprised coming back on the long trail and going up the unending staircase.

More challenging than it looks! But easier than a summit for sure. Really nice trails with some ups and downs, great small river crossings with waterfalls. Definitely recommend going Long Trail South our to the Gulch and Babcock coming back. It would have been hard to ascend LT south. We had a nice snack by the creek near Gulch and wading in. Great spot all around!

Definitely cool. There's cabins at Ritterbush Pond and a steep hike up stairs on the way out. Don't do this in winter.

Beautiful with the fall colors. I started with Babcock Trail and ended with the LT after Devils Gulch. Enjoyed the waterfall and the solitude.

Big Muddy Pond is a great find. The route could use better directional signage right after stream crossing (east of Babcock Trail junction with Long Trail).

Fun, easy trail. We did it a day after heavy rain so we had the challenge of mud, but still enjoyed it. We took it slow so we completed it in about 2.5 hours.
