Advertised as a 4.2 mile out and back trail. This is not the case. water fall along trail is weak sauce. The name says it all, nothing but stones the first mile and a half to aggravate your knees.
On the positive side, it's rated as difficult so you most likely won't be running into other hikers. Beautiful scenery with the exception of a few thick vegetation spots. Bring food.

Good trail to descend from Blue Suck Falls trail and the Tuscarora Overlook. Well maintained. The trail gets very narrow I'm certain parts and the loose rocks are a little much after a mile or so. This trail crosses over Stony Run Creek several times. Note: part of this trail is shared with horses... Beware of the manure!

Great trail for descending from Tuscarora Overlook trail. There is close to 10 switchbacks going up past Stony Run Falls. The trail is well maintained and is an excellent opportunity for hiking or mountain biking.

Very nice trail. Shared it with a few mountain bikers that day. The trail crossed the stream a few times. Switchbacks helped with the elevation gain. Overall, I'd rate it moderate to strenuous. Great hike - can't wait to go again.
