Awesome trail

I really enjoyed this trail. Found lots of geocaches along the way, too.

loved it, until Tollgate Trail from High Trail back to the parking lot. glad I had ankle support! very, very, very rocky.

This is my favorite set of Land Trust trails. Alms House is a pleasant walk through quiet woods down to Three Caves, then Waterline wakes you up (and up and up and up) with its climb to Bluffline. There were no ropes when I went last week, and ice on the rocks made for a tricky scramble. Bluffline lets you get your breath back as you head to the parking lot.

nice and easy hike. We missed the leaves by a week. good hike overall.

Rugged trail, but beautiful and worth it.

This would make for a great running trail - if you're into that sort of thing.

Storm damage on the trails. Make sure you have ankle support.

Beautiful, fun and a great workout!

I would rate this more moderate than easy. Toll gate has a steady incline for at least a mile and it's very rocky. It's a very nice hike.

This was a fun but challenging trail.....especially for the inexperienced hiker. The Waterline trail that connects off the Bluffline is no joke! Steep and slippery climb. There are some ropes to hold on to for the ascent, but not the entire way up!!

Starting at the Land Trust Parking lot yields many variations of trails. There are many unmarked trails on the map and all are very easy. This is the most direct route to the north side overlook of Monte Sano State Park if starting at the the Land Trust parking lot.

5 stars for what it is; a nice meandering trail that is not overly technical.

Waterline is very steep and is very slippery after a rain. Next time I would like to start on Alms trail so I can climb up Waterline instead of going down. Altogether a very fun hike.

Not well marked but a nice challenge in an urban environment. Short, technical.

My tripod dog and I did this and had a great time. It was very easy for both of us and gave him a couple of places to splash in shallow water. We ran into other hikers, runners, and bikers.

A nice hike. As others have mentioned, the Waterline trail is steep. I banged my knee on the way down and hiked the rest of the trail with a bloody knee. Overall trip took me about 2 hours to complete.

Very rocky, not scenic at all (or very little), confusing at times---and it's $5 per person to get in the park.

Easy to get lost at Water Line, but a hard hike that will definitely burn some calories.

The Old Railway Bed Trail is the best part of this 5.2 mile loop in my opinion for scenery. Takes about two hours to walk and is well marked for jogging, but will need good ankles and shoes as this is a rocky Trail. Well hiked, pet friendly, mountain bikers and joggers.
