Very pleasant, mostly easy trail to run. Wide path, not very technical besides one short/steep portion. Scenic with waterfalls. I'll definitely be back.

Easy trail with primarily gravel surface. Good option if you're trying to minimize mud while seeking a trail/nature setting.

Pretty good trail run. A few stairs and a half mile hill to challenge you. Some parts were very muddy but it’s rain season

Excellent trail full of climbs, beautiful scenery, and creek crossings. Enjoy!

Just beautiful! Hiked from Old Mans Cave Parking lot along the upper falls trail to Cedar Falls. Was about 4 miles one way. We got quite a bit of rain today so all the streams and falls were going really good. One of my favorite spots to hike with lots of trails from easy to moderate. Such a great place and so close to home.

This trail is closed right now. I couldn’t find any information saying when it would be open again. I ended up doing cedar falls trail instead. Thank goodness it was dog friendly.

I had previously done the Sugarbush and yellow loop many times, but decided to change it up and I did this one today. My only complaint (unless I totally missed something) is that it’s not exactly clear how to cross the small stream shortly after diverging from the Sugarbush trail. I initially passed where I was supposed to go and wondered off on a non-official path until it dead ended. Upon turning around and going back, I spotted the marker on the other side of the stream. I had to carefully cross the in the water level to get to the other side navigating around slippery rocks and other debris, however, had the water been slightly higher, it would have been impassable. It seems like there should be a bridge to cross the stream at this point, especially since the Metro Parks have constructed so many other bridges over smaller gaps/streams on the Red, Yellow, and Sugarbush trails. Otherwise though, like I said, a great and relaxing walk.

Great walking trail, well maintained. Not a big fan of the dogs off their leashes though.

have been on 3 times in last month. Still very muddy. Many trees across trails.

Really easy, nice trail for a day with with some nice local overnight spots on the northern end.

This is my families go to park!!! I personally love going to run but I do take my children more often than not they love the big hill and also the multiple playgrounds to break up the walk. Also a great place to ride bikes or to take the dogs as there is a dog park as well.

Have been here many times hiking and running. Now that I have this app maybe I won’t get lost? Eh who am I kidding, yes I will haha... great trails, stay on the path and watch for signs it is very easy to make a wrong turn. Otherwise we love running at Towners wood.

Hiked and ran here many times. I also take my children. We all LOVE IT! Great scenery, great park at the end for the kids. It is a gravel trail with lots of hills. They also rent Kayaks and canoes. All around great family fun or just to go for a hilly run.

Beautiful and quiet - not a lot of people on this trail on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Went off the parkway path into the woods - climbed some of nature’s stairs. Quite serene

Not hard. Moderate at best. Definitely has some beautiful areas, and mostly through woods. However there is a lot of highway noise near the turn around. A good trail, for sure.

Great trail that follows creek so there are lots of bridges. There is a lake with benches around it and some very interesting artwork on the polls of the overpasses.

Did the 5 mile loop today. Roads leading to trailhead parking are gravel and smaller width so be mindful. Is a smaller parking lot with a bathroom at the trailhead. The trail starts at the furthest end of the parking lot. It was marked decent in some areas and not for others but with the alltrails map we had 0 issues. Quite a few creek crossings along the 5 miles but the water was very low. Boots are a must if it has rained! 98% of the trail was super muddy and very deep in places. A lot of slipping and sliding. I brought my trekking poles just in case and it definitely saved me tons from falling in the mud. My trail running shoes were severely caked in mud and at times were completely encased in mud. It took us a lot longer than our normal hiking speed to complete the loop with all the mud we encountered. Overall it's a very nice trail with plenty of spots to camp. We definitely want to complete the 15 mile and do an overnight when it has dried up some. Also some areas were overgrown and a few trees were down. We bought a can of picaridin for $5 and sprayed ourselves for tick protection knowing there may be some overgrowth. Pack plenty of water to drink especially if it's hot out. Was very humid. Will definitely return.

Super easy. Great for all ages and you can’t beat the views. Right alongside the river. People with stroller, runners and bikers all share the extra wide and winding concrete path.

Love this. peaceful and well blazed. Some hills. Wind storm knocked a few trees across trail but fairly easy to navigate. If you don't see a blaze, follow the clumps of planted grass. Beautiful in the spring with groves of trillium.

Had a great day hiking with my son

Best hike in the Hocking Hills. Personally, I would call it moderate in difficulty.

Trails need cutting back. Quick walk up and back down.

Pretty views along the lower portion by the water. But a lot of overgrowth on the trail, trying to avoid wild roses most of the time.

Loved loved loved this trail! It was a fun place to explore and beautiful

Fairly easy hike, stopped on our way from MI to PA.

Overall an easy and scenic hike - not too much challenge here, but beautiful scenery. It can get crowded, so visit on a weekday if possible!

Park at the Pine Lane Trailhead. Definitely a workout (especially for people just getting back into hiking) on the outward segment of the Buckeye Trail. Be prepared to hike to the top of the ridge. I used the bridle trail to loop back around and hiked back in on the Buckeye Trail. Also be prepared to cross a section of the creek. It was shallow enough that my boots didn't get too wet, but I can imagine after a heavy rain it could get a little trickier to cross.

There are a few parts of the trail that are eroded and leave the trail pretty narrow, but other than that we really enjoyed this trail and will be back soon! I like that we can stop and view the waterfall, or go to the picnic area and eat or just relax. The views are beautiful and the trail is just challenging enough for me to get a workout but easy enough for my 3 year old to do.
