Nice trail a little tight at some points for a dog.

ok trail , a lot of up hills for mtb

A good day hike and you can see all the high points in 1 go. The bolder formations are great and after the first steeper start, it levels out near the top if you start from the right. The left side has a gentler slope as is good for pets or an easier climb. I'd reccommend going to the top trail, it is a beautiful route.

Great mtb

nice and easy trail. accompanied by the soothing sounds of the river. very level and good for all activities

Great trail, not too far from Philly.

We went on 8/17 and there were a ton of mosquitos. It would be a really nice hike in the Fall, but can be skipped in the summer.

Improperly marked trails that changed colors without warning, really narrow trails with brush overgrowing, crawling with mosquitoes, and not a lot of sights to see. Wasn't a fan.

Awesome loop with a few different options. I loved the massive trees. We went in late October and there wasn't much traffic, just a hand full of cyclists. Plenty of deer, turtles, and a few snakes. The elevation gains are easy and flatten out quickly.

Entered from the South Lot (right after main gate, then 1st lot on right). Traveled counter-clockwise around the reservoir. Only made it to start of Campground trail, about 3+ mi. before turning back as it was hot, humid and my Swissie girl was dragging. While we had water, my beastie needed a lot so we paused several times to quench her. It's a very shady trail so the impact of the sun is muted, however it was still HOT! Here are some tips if you have the same big dog issues: immediately after the open area where the man-made earthened ridge is to your left, road to your right, is a reservoir overflow "creek". The right side is clean (no muck) and you can give a drink there. This is in the middle of the most rigorous part of the trail--up & down, some steeps--so a good spot for a break. After that, you go to one of the highest points before descending to the start of the Campground Trail where you all can jump in the water.

The views are absolutely breath taking. Great place to fully enjoy nature and do some self reflection.

It's an ok trail for hiking, great for mountain biking.

We've walked all trails birding and with our 2 Labs. Best place for water loving pups, the cedar creeks are very clean!

Great loop. Climbs will give you a workout but the downhills are a nice reward. Trails are shared with runners, hikers, and dogs but are plenty wide to allow passing.

Kayaking Cedar Creek great time with friends.

Everything I expected it to be. An average hike at an average place. Nothing more and nothing less. Though, there was a nice little (10 yard) solid elevation on the back 9 of the trail which was pretty sweet. Keep your eyes peeled for it..., that felt good. Not sure about the whole run off p (pollution) in the water spring which reflected as a rainbow and gave off the illusion you could make money, here. Nevertheless, a lot of cool table top fungi, etc. and at least 1-2 very kind frogs. Definitely nothing greater than a 3 star hike, but definitely nothing less either.

My second trail. Very nice. So many deer. Clean picnic area. Very peaceful. There’s also a red trail.

great trail for walking or biking.

It’s an easy trail but a good 5 miles walk. Many chances to stop and take few good pictures. Benches on the trail helps to spend some time inside the quiet forest area. Will be back again.

first try, didn't finish , have come back :)

There's garbage everywhere including but not limited to broken beer bottles and crack pipes.

Saw some deer though

Easy/Moderate trail. Beautiful dense forest, all shadowed. But really nothing special, no destination or target and I rarely met so many annoying mosquitoes!!! If you wanna hike there be sure to bring a gallon of mosquito repellent!!!
I was with my dog: just one fresh water steam at the beginning of the trail.
1h15’ the loop (because of the mosquitoes I guess)

Beautiful views definitely reccomend.

Absolutely no rock climbing. Period. Its a walk. No rock climbing

The full Round Valley loop is a mixed bag. Except for the long road portion that you can’t get around, in cool weather with turned or fallen leaves it’s one of the state’s ten best hikes. But summer, with ticks, heat, snakes, seasonal trail closures, and a crappy road walk, it’s a long slog to avoid.

Close to home , I take my son and his friend fishing (plenty of fish) and I will walk the dog , did 3.7 miles last visit and it was a hot day and a good workout !
