Lovely easy trail along the ledges of large rock formations. The stairway created by the civilian conservation corps is really cool and worth checking out. The signage can be confusing. We ended up doing a loop on the happy days trail and then back on track with the ledges.

The first two miles have the most elevation change so it's the most difficult part. After that it levels off and becomes easy.

A nice hike. Good climb. My advise is to do the loop clockwise, as it is easier to climb up the steep hill than to scale it down.

This trail was super fun! It was very unique and easy. There’s a really pretty scenic overlook if you cross the field too.

This is a very nice trail with some great scenery!

Pretty difficult for the first few miles on the Buckeye Trail portion, but still a lot of fun. The Towpath is a good break while you walk back. Some cool views along the way.

There are a couple trees/obstacles along the Buckeye Trail when I went; was not a problem though.

Nice, easy hike with some interesting landscapes to explore. Walking through the ravines and seeing everything covered in moss was fun. Worth exploring if you are at the National Park.

Beautiful, well maintained trail.

My son is in Boy Scouts and is working on his Hikkng Merit Badge. Great trial, while we were hiking there were Trail Angels of the Buckeye Trail fixing up part of the trail. They were courteous and kind people. Lots of elevation and saw many signs of wildlife. Would definitely recommend.

One of CVNP’s most popular hikes. Great for kids and kids at heart who like to climb around the ledges. Nice view from the top.

Beautiful hike!

This is a beautiful trail to hike when there is snow on the ground. I went on a weekday so there were not many people around. Great place to take the family.

I found this trail kinda boring. On the upside, it is quiet (except for the people ...lots of traffic) and peaceful. On the downside I found it dark and uninteresting. It is an easy hike ...good if you want a fun adventure with grade school age kids, or a fun walk in the woods if you aren't really into hiking. Serious hikers will be disappointed.

Great Hike! Starts out with lots of built in stairs...definitely thought the terrain was moderate. Great for a good workout!

Although a short trail it was an amazing hike with gorgeous overlooks and geological formations.

Starts off with a huge hill up and then a huge hill down then the trail is over

Good trail but muddy and a bit hard to follow. I’d say it’s more moderate than easy due to inclines and declines.
