Best hill in lancaster!

The reservoir rim path is around 1 1/2 miles, with the outer walkway offering around 2 miles. There is parking on the north side, off Precision way, which also services the Disc golf course. There is a parking lot to the south off Kibble road, which also serves the boat ramp to put fishing boats on the water.

I can't understand why this isn't visited more. This is one of my favorite hike of all the trails in Hocking Hills (the rim is even better). The gorge is amazing with the massive cliff faces surrounding it. There are multiple caves along the trail as nice as Whispering Cave and even close to Old Man's Cave. For some reason, they paved the trail for most of the way. As soon as the pavement ends, the trail gets really good.

Well maintained and fantastic hiking with plenty of variety in terrain. Will definitely do again.

Decent overall, but trail could use some maintenance. Also, I went today (March 12, 2018) and two significant portions of the trail were completely underwater.
Two stretches are along roads, one of which is quite busy.
Some nice secluded stretches and a pleasant stroll through Pioneer Village.

Very nice trail as it’s mostly shaded (nice in summer!) and runs along a stream. I’d recommend parking/starting at Given on this out-and-back trail so you’re walking UP hill on the first leg, then hiking downhill on the return. Most people have dogs (which only have to be on leash for 1/3 of the trail) so if you’re annoyed/uncomfortable with sniffing/jumping/obnoxious/pooping dogs this may not be the trail for you. I disagree with other reviewers who indicated that it’s “low traffic.” That’s a relative term, but I hike here every weekend and unless it’s pouring down rain or below 20 degrees, I always pass 10 parties or so on this hour and 10 minute hike.

Great for a quick loop or two! Beautiful pond off of one of trails!!

The outer loop is very neat with scenic spots along the way. Take your time and enjoy the easy trail.

Trees down everywhere blocking many parts of the trail. Some apparently for months. Truly sad that park maintenance staff haven’t done their jobs. I probably could be a nice trail but not in its current state of disrepair.

Trail is beautiful and easy, stair cases and a beautiful view of the waterfall make this a treat to see. Easy for kids, so good as a family outing. Would see this again.

Wide clear path gravel. Great scenery. Can get buggy in summer.

Can combine with the other out-back trail to make as much as 8 Miles. Be careful after heavy rains or snow melts...trail is pretty low and can have areas flood. Very well marked. Lot of wild life, deer are nearly tame. Clean bathrooms and lots of parking. Highly recommend

We’ve done this hike a couple of times and my dogs enjoyed it as well.

Very scenic! Was pretty greasy because of all the moisture so was fairly difficult throughout most of the hike! Will definitely revisit when it dries out!

Was a nice walk. Pretty wet this time of year which makes it super muddy! A little bummed that there are houses so close to parts of the trail. Will hike again during a drier season.

Decent trail, however it's unfortunately not marked at all. Can be pretty rocky + steep at parts so I'd be careful bringing kids along.

Excellent winter hike! Little muddy, but trail is well maintained so not a huge deal.

This is a beautiful place.

Beautiful, awesome trail !!!

This is a beautiful trail. My son (8) and I always choose the Gorge because it is definitely one of the prettiest hiking areas near us. We started going when my son was only 5, and he could keep up and handle it then. It definitely is a little tricky in some spots tho. The rock formations are amazing. You have to walk through two rocks that are split apart and that’s really cool for a kid (and me) to do. There is a huge rock that sticks out over the walking path and you are able to go underneath it and there are teeny tiny waterfalls that you can see coming off that rock in the warmer weather. It definitely worth taking a look at it!!! A lot of great pictures and memories were made there

Nice peaceful walk only saw a few other people. Wildlife is plentiful but I prefer a bit more seclusion. Several spots along the upper portion of the trail you pass very close to housing.

coulda done with less mud but "spring", ealry march, is mud season so not much you can do... but was a great trail with great views

Nice trail with plenty of postcard shots along the way.

Hard, but well worth it!

As a extremely beginner hiker who is not in shape but trying my best , I made it half way then headed back with that being said it's a beautiful place to walk.

Great trail to run. Very difficult to run, lots of rocks and roots. Got lost a few times. This app was very useful to fin my way. Watch out for the stone steps.

Very nice! Scenic, flat, paved path to walk, run or bike on. I wish it had more portable potties on the path.

There were many trees down on the trail but that was ok with me as this adds to the challenge and is nature at its finest! Would like to do the long loop one day! With that i may give it 5 stars.

Great hike and the twin sisters were great. The smaller stream in front of the mudcatcher was pretty high so I had to cross it closer to the 82 bridge just off the unpaved section of the towpath trail that veers off of the paved trail. The crossing was right before the iron walking bridge before the un paved trail connects with the paved trail again.
