Tough hike for me as a beginner, but worth it. Bring water shoes for lower falls area. The rocks are sharp if you want to take a break and swim.

Amazing hike! It was our first hike this year so it was a little difficult but oh so worth it. From the beauty of the sand cave to views from on top of white rocks.

When I have to hike on a gravel road for miles, I do not give 5 stars. I think this is a fun hike for kids as you see mine shafts and the remanence of equipment and old vehicles. The opal creek portion is gorgeous and a nice hike through the trees. There are many many hikes in Oregon I repeat and take people. This will not be one of them.

loved the view and historic feel of a piece of Washington's past of the railroad

Great out and back trail. Beautiful primitive campsite along the way. Knowing this history is a big plus. Highly recommend.

I did this in the 50's the end of Feb, no snow on the ground. then March hit. the bal. rock is cool.

lots of climbing over branches and stream crossings. Absolutely gorgeous. my favorite things: redwoods, running water and fog

Absolutely amazing views from the summit as well as the fire tower! Took 45 min to ascend with a 30+lb child in my back. Total trip down was 30 min. Well worth the trip!

Not wheelchair nor stroller friendly. It is a desert hike without shade. Be prepared with water and good shoes. Petroglyphs are located in the back of the canyon so you should hike the entire 2.2 mile loop.

the parking area is private property and you get charged to park by a sketch dude. just passed the gate, it's state park land so it's a little frustrating that there is no free access. we only paid for the ghost town parking buy where able to walk to the river from one of the side trails after the gate for the ghost town. the ghost town trail was unbearably sunny the day we went with no shade until you went toward the cemetery. there are some structures to the right of the fork when you get to the coal cart. there is a subtle sign that says private property but we went about 1/4 mile passed and stayed on the trail. no shade on that fork nearly killed me but I get it's been unseasonably warm this time of year.

wonderful hike, a bit steep at times coming back out. very cool! It takes you to Nuttallburg Mine entrance and conveyer headhouse.

Love this trail, my daughter and I hike it often.

It's not free! :( $7 per adult.

WARNING! You need to purchase a ticket at the main visitors center to access this trail. Which you wouldn’t know unless you stopped at there on the way in and talked to a ranger. If you (like me) skip the visitors center and go straight for trails you would never know. There are no signs or information leading into the park to let you know this. We drove 27 miles to the trailhead just to be told “sorry but you are not allowed access to this trail without tickets, please drive 54 miles round trip to go get them). Which we were willing to do but by the time we made it back to the visitors center they were sold out of “tickets” till late in the afternoon (this was at 8:15am). If you’re not there by 7am don’t waste your times Tickets to go hiking? Never heard of this in my life. Terrible experience.

MY GPS TOLD ME THIS HIKE WAS 11.6 MILES NOT 7.5 MILES. The elevation gain was also about 2600 feet.

Hiked down into the gulch and back up. It took a little over 5 hours. When parking at the summit, head north on the road past the gate, and immediately after the first comm tower, turn left onto the service road. When the first split comes, take a left for Lemmon Rock Trail south. Take that for the first 3.5 miles to where it splits and the train begins to go north-east, or south-west. Take the southwest route until it dead ends into Mount Lemmon Trail #5, and continue north.

Went today and absolutely loved this trail!!! By far one of the easiest trails I've been on. The waterfall was gorgeous!!! Did see one snake, but that is to be expected. There was a couple gorgeous horses where we parked and they let the kids pet them. Beautiful scenery!

Beautiful hike; very doable and fun - also with kids due to water element. Would wish it was clearer where the end of the trial is (maybe add some signage). Trip to parking lot with car was fine (first hill is steep and lots of ditches; but AWD did fine). Highly recommended as only a few come here and you are truly in the middle of beautiful nature. Be sure the wear shoes that can get wet and dirty (hiking shoes recommended).

Great hike. View at the top isn’t the best unless you go up the fire tower due to tree growth blocking view. Hike about 1.5 hours up if you go at a steady pace. We did it with our 7, 9 and 11 year old children who made it up pretty easily.

We started at stop 6 and hiked to Rainbow Falls. Not much shade because there was a fire in the region years ago and trees are growing back. The walk was worth seeing the falls at the end and there really is a rainbow!

Wow! This trail does not disappoint! It is easy with a very slow incline. The river beside the trail was visible most of the trail. The rhododendrons still had a few flowers. Butterflies were plentiful with groups of them right at the waterfall. Also had to encourage a black snake out of our path!

Beautiful Intersecting Trails but NOT 4.7 miles.. 2 miles at most... so that was the only disappointment

Did this trail in July 2017. Long stretches of packed snow near the top and hiked through a small snow storm. Very scenic, great overviews into the park and tremendous views from the top. Also, saw mountain goats grazing on cliff to east of lookout.

I love this trail, there are so many variations of it, every hike is different. After the rains.lots of pools with tadpoles. great way to spend a hour or two. people you meet are always friendly.

The Lancaster NW River Trail is a great 12 mile (not 3 mi as stated in app) paved rail trail along the Susquehanna River. Very scenic with many markers of historical points of interest along the trail.

The NW Lancaster River Trail is a great paved trail along the Susguehanna River. CORRECTION TO THE MISINFORMATION ON THE APP. This trail begins in Columbia, PA passes thru Marietta and ends at Bainbridge, PA (it is currently being extended North from Bainbridge). The trail is actually 12 miles (not 3mi) TOTALLY paved with great scenery including a bald eagle nest on small island in Susquehanna River. KS

there's several creeks here close by that kids or adults can play in. right under the bridge is the best spot I think. very pretty area, trails arent too long but it's nice and shaded.

Pretty easy. beautiful beautiful beautiful views!!!!! lovers leap is an amazing story too. kid and dog friendly for sure.

great trail for biking....but that's all I'd recommend it for. too much bird poop to be on foot, and it's usually crowded.its pretty bring by the water though.

I’m sure this is a great trail but the only way to get to the GPS coordinates is by trespassing. Wasted my wife’s morning getting here and now I feel awful - thanks.

Don't do this hike without a bike. All except the last mile is highway and city streets. Do China Cove instead.
