Took the loop to the trail to thunder canyon falls last week. It was very peaceful and the falls were just gorgeous. I will definitely be going again to explore more.

I hiked this trail today and it was incredible! Getting to the Eye of the Needle was a challenge but I took my time and held on to the ropes that help guide you up and down the side of the cliff. Also I’m glad I became Pro on this All Trails App because it guided me along with GPS and got me where I needed to be because the trail is not marked.

Hiked this trail on 12/29. What an amazing trail!

Great hike with amazing views. The North view was especially beautiful. Well kept trail with some cool stops on the way up. We will be back!

the road down to the trail is pretty steep. we took a 2 wheel drive Honda pilot down to it and had no problem getting back up the road. recommend going to falls after a lot of rain. easy hike though.

Awesomeness!

Very accessible and two great views - north and south sides of the mountain. The first 10-15 minutes are grueling but after that it is pretty flat. It was very enjoyable for me and my old dog. The leaves have all fallen so the views were great!

Hiked Round Top today and it was beautiful weather and views. The distance from the parking lot up the Crouse trail, around switchbacks, two loops and one spur trail and back to the parking lot was 3.8 miles. The trail map was difficult to interpret at first and we weren't really sure if there was one trail or two until we finished the second loop. There is one trail but several options of directions to take. There are no blazes, but this trail is so well worn that none were necessary and at junctions there were great signs. South fork was by far the most beautiful view!

I haven't been in the spring, so I don't know how grown up it gets. But, right now as of nov 24. Is the best time to go. There were lots of ppl there as well but not so overcrowded you can't enjoy it. Just means the trail was good and packed down. The views are awesome and the plane crash was.., idk. I felt kinda sad about it. I think the crash happened in 1946. Overall a nice and peaceful adventure!

Love the trail. The benches and fences are rotting. This would be a great boy scout project.

This is spectacular. I broke my arm... it was when we were all the way in to the eye of the needle. An accident can happen in a parking lot  and the hike back out was torture with a broken arm. But my review stays the same—-spectacular. Just use caution because it’s rated HARD for a reason.

We went out and went camping on the trail and had a blast. You definitely are isolated and there's lots of animals down there at night but its incredibly relaxing. The hike can be taxing but if you make sure you watch where you're stepping and take breaks if you need to you'll be fine.

Very hard trail to hike if you’re not in shape. Beautiful scenery throughout. Can be tough to navigate but if you stay on the creek you’ll be fine.

Super short and easy with beautiful falls, but go when there is water.

My favorite buffalo River trail! Gorgeous, once you start climbing it's one beautiful spot after another!

The connector from the parking area is steep. The crash site is interesting and the views are great.

Short and easy trail. Not the prettiest in fall but should be fantastic in spring after a good rain.

GREAT TRAIL. The only issue my wife and I had was that we missed the waterfall. I don’t know if the offshoot for the waterfall was covered or we just overlooked it. Either way this was a great trail. There is a pretty good sized cave on the trail so definitely take some extra lights and extra clothes if you plan to explore.

There are a lot of amazing hikes at the Buffalo National River area but this one is the best. That’s why it gets 5 stars.
This trail is amazing, hard, challenging, can be dangerous but it’s worth it. Expect to climb over rocks, jump over water in the creek and climb 100 feet of rope up an incline to get to the Eye Of The Needle. This is my all time favorite hike.
If you’re in the area, this is a must hike. You won’t regret it.
