Great trail for Scouts of any skill level. Sign on Red trail says "Extremely Difficult". It's not.

A lovely gravel trail that’s perfect for walking, running, or biking. Very flat and wide trail, definitely should be rated easy instead of moderate. Also if you’d like more views of the water I’d recommended going right when you get to the split in the trail.

great trail bike ride....a little muddy in spots and downed trees. good adventure for me and my son.

Great trail run! Just Challenging enough to help train for mountain trail run in Colorado. Beautiful views and lots of shaded trees. Trail gets dicey if you’re trying to run it while it’s raining or just after it has rained.

The first part on the tracks is so-and-so, but after you swing back around it gets more interesting. We saw a large amount of wildlife, including many deer, squirrels, a rabbit, and a good sized non-venomous snake that slithered across the trail in front of us! The second half has a fair amount of incline. A great workout.

This was a great trail for me and my puppy! I did my best to follow the topographic map but it would have been helpful to know the color trails. I believe these are the trails you should follow: Park at the mill on Stafford road. Walk up the hill and take the purple historic walking trail. You will come to a juncture. Take the left trail. You will come to another juncture where a white trail is labeled to the right. Take the white trail. You will come out of the woods to a beautiful field and see 2 narrow roads. Cross over them and you will see a white sign pointing through the field to the left. Next you will come to the red trail with an option to turn left or right. Turn left! This is where I went wrong... right will bring you down to Stafford road at the lapidum boat ramp. Stay in the ridge and the red trail will bring you back to the mill!

Nice easy trail, wonderful views, will be going back to this one for sure....kids loved it.

Nice trail, very flat and wide with gravel. Great path for a jogger stroller and kids.

Nice hike, wet parts due to the recent snow but dog loved it! Would go again

This trail is wonderful for bird watching and views of the water. The main oath offers numerous water access points where you can spot herons, hawks, and eagles. Black vultures have become quite populated in this area and their numbers can be overwhelming!

Great run with a mix of rolling terrain to moderate climbs. Not marked well after mile 3 but overall a good trail.

Great trail from dam parking lot to Stafford, very flat and wide along the river. A nice smaller trail branches off down to the train bridge. Great mountain biking. I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of the trails.

Great fall day of hiking on our way to the camp area.

loved the scenery and difficulty of the trail, but keeping the right trail is definitely a task. we ended up with 7 miles instead of 4.

I'd say this is easy not moderate. User footwear of choice seems to be sneakers. Trail is wide, flat, topped with gravel. Parking is across the bridge on the other side of the road where folks are putting into the water.

Hard to follow this trail, even using the map from this app. That said, this is a very pretty park with lots of trails and variety.

Wide, multi purpose trail that offers trekkers, great scenery and sights of the Susquehanna River.

Very nice trail and perfect length for a beautiful day. The second half had a different trail name; farm road trail.

I wish I would of read the reviews before I took this trail. The reviews were right, it's impossible to follow. We also had to hike the road to find the orange trail back to the car. 4 miles turned into 7+ quickly. Was a nice hike but I also would not do this again until they figure out how to better mark the trails.

This trail was impossible to follow. No matter which way I went I couldn't seem to follow the trail. I eventually had to follow the roads before I could hook back up with Trail which resulted in an extra 2 miles being added to the hike. While it's a pretty area and there were some decent elevation on the trail parts that I was able to follow I wouldn't consider this trail again.

Only rated moderate for the distance, as the vertical climbs are fairly easy. Trail had lots of variety - woods, open field and river side. Suggest using alltrails app map as the trail intersections are many and it's easy to miss a turn.

Please make note that distance is closer to 7.5 miles.

lots of trails to make the hike as long as you like.

One of the better trails I've done at this park. Great site seeing! Had a BLAST!

Clean Trail, hiked up to the conawingo dam. Great view of the river.

It was a rainy trek today but still a great a walk- saw 6 bald eagles today.

Can be tricky as there are multiple intersecting trails. Enjoyed it. The walk along the river with all the fall colors was spectacular

Great scenery. Nice flat and fast trail to run. Parking is not the best but manageable. I'll be going regularly.

great scenery to go along with a challenging ride. Along the Greenway trail was a peaceful fun adventure taking you up the river. Moving on to some of the parks inner trail is where it got difficult! Amazing place, will definitely be back soon!

There are a number of hiking trails within the Susquehanna State Park you can hike so I recommend you print off the trail map from their web page. I hiked the Susquehanna Trail from Lapidum and then came back using the Land of Promise Trail. There are enough trail in the park to keep you busy for a day.
