Hiked part of the trail with a 3 and 5 year old. Made it in about a mile, just past the “cave.” Cool rock formations throughout. Would definitely like to get back here again ... cool hike.

We hiked this trail on a Saturday morning. The first two miles it was raining, the remainder it stopped. The trail was well kept. We only passed a few people on our way out ( near the ‘bear caves’). We opted to take the roadway back to the trail head as it was a wet mess. Our 4.5 year old son hiked the trail with no issues. I was a bit disappointed as it offered no scenery outside of your typical dense woods and it’s not a loop.

The entirety of the trail is actually 6 miles. This needs updated. Wonderful trail. Started early and did not see anyone else on the trail, not even wildlife. A couple bright orange newts, and many chipmunks, welcomed us. Late May, early June received a lot of rain and that was definitely noticeable on the trail. Look out for mud after you cross the river. Water was low enough to cross over easily.

Flat, lightly used unpaved trail. Good for hybrid, mountain and cyclocross biking. Close to the Seneca Indian Casino.

Beautiful trail! The bear caves were very neat to see. My only complaint was that it’s not a loop.

A nice trail, but at about the halfway point it got pretty muddy. Made the 2nd and 3rd mile pretty slow and and challenging. The 1000+ foot elevation change made the hike worthwhile. BTW the posted signs all call this the Bee-hunter trail and it was 6+ miles round trip.

It was a nice, short walk! However it’s more of a cabin loop than a walk through the forest

Very neat park to do some exploring around the several building size rock formations. Picnic area is available.

Note to travelers who are coming to this trailhead from the north. I highly recommend taking 219 into Bradford Pa. and turn right onto Interstate Parkway. It does appear to take longer to get to the trailhead from the AllTrails app instructions provided us to take (seasonal road) Limestone Rd to Ridge Run to Allegheny State Park Rte 2 to Allegheny State Park Rte 3. However, these roads are extremely rough for regular vehicles (car) and even with going at a snails pace, bottomed out once or twice. Risking car damage and very slow speed it not worth gaining a few minutes. The trail was an easy hike and well marked.

The trail was quite wet in spots today but very passable. Wear hiking boots and it will be fine. Saw a few wild flowers and heard some birds...pleasant trail.

Nice area, with amazing rock formations! Could spend hours exploring the tight rock crevices. Does have admission fee, but well worth it. Friendly proprietors....visited on Mother’s Day and mothers were admitted free. As a side note: Bathrooms are clean and unique.

Beautiful forest trail. There was 12-18 inches of snow on the trail the day we did it, so really slow going. Covered in snow, it was hard in some places to figure out where the trail was. We've done this trail in the summer as well and the trail is easy to find when it's not covered in snow. Note that the trail is marked, both at the trailhead and on the trail markers, as the Beehunter trail. The full loop is also about 6.5 miles rather than 5.3.

Lot of tree's down, kind of difficult snowshoeing.

Great trail just need better markers.

We walked this trail yesterday with our son and chihuahua. It had a nice elevation and loop around. It was a beautiful day and nice views of forest, but basically all the same view:)

great easy trail. really nice for family treks

Definitely a moderate trail. My son (6y) and I are new to hiking, so we felt it was not hard but not easy. Very rocky and rooty.

not quite what I was expecting but a nice short walk through the woods, it was nice!

Beautiful scenery. We did it with 3 kids under 8 and they loved it.

Great trail in a beautiful area of the park. Steep climb to start the trail with overall elevation gain for the first half of the trail, with the back half being primarily downhill. Very well defined trail, nearly impossible to get lost. Dirt trail, so it can be very muddy (and will be if it has rained within the past few days), which pushes the difficulty up. Highly recommended.

Make sure you don't rely on google maps to find it, we lost reception and never found it. We'll try again next year.

I loved this trail!!! The caves at the beginning were awesome and fun to climb on. The rest of the hike was tough but beautiful!

Nice shorter hike with a steady incline

Trail is 2.7 miles, not 1.7. Trailhead is a good distance from parking. Wide trail, gentle but frequent hills, currently a few downed trees.

Pretty fun trail in the woods - easy to enjoy the sounds of songbirds and woodpeckers

Repurposed railway - it's now a completely flat grassy path that cuts through the woods. It's a decent walk, but gets boring since it's so flat and relatively straight

Similar to Thunder Rock in Allegheny - but with more moss and waaaaay less people. It's a very tranquil spot
