Good mix of ascents with enough flats, and pretty technical for running due to rocks and tree roots but well worth a look. I’m looking forward to doing it again but without the ice next time.

I ran my first trail run on here. I stuck with the red trail but ventured off on some other little side trails closer to the lake which made it a little more interesting then the regular open grass and gravel marked trail. It was beautiful and added some extra challenge. Do be scared to be adventurous. Keep the lake in view and you won’t get lost.

Excellent trails as this region goes. Clearly marked and well maintained. Each trail is its own independent loop offering easy access back to the parking area and the different trails offer varying levels of challenge. The peak offers some nice views and the Creek Trail crosses a peaceful, babbling brook. Old stone walls cross the hill and the remnants of what was to be a train station are there to explore. Happy hiking.

The trail markers ran slim in some places, had to use the shore as a guide.

Highs and lows, mounting biking portion, unsuspected part where the trail leads to the little cliff and had to hope off the bike and push it and carry it a bit before the trail regained its width.

The first few lookout points are really easily accessible, but some of the others are more of a challenge. Fun hike and beautiful views!

Flat walk over frozen ground with the dog.

Good trail, perfect for hiking. Got lost afew miles in at the fire tower. Bring a map next time.

Nice hike, clearly marked trail. Went with some snow on the trail and was able to get around without issue.

We went there on Sunday January 13th, the road was horrible and full of potholes, the directions were not correct, we couldn’t find the trailhead or the falls, we did trek through the woods and timber to the creek, which was beautiful with the ice, the next person to go there, please mark the trailhead with a sign or something , so others can find and enjoy!

Beautiful as ever but a bit icy. Would recommend crampons.

Not for the faint of heart! Absolutely beautiful in the winter with the icicles! If you’re looking for an easier option than the rock scramble: at the wooden sign at the bottom of the trail go up to the right. You can get to the upper falls and then go back down the same way. I don’t recommend going down the steep rocks.

Nice bike trail with a good restaurant, Rusty Rail, before you go back.. Beautiful scenery, very easy trail for biking..

there were some parts of the trail that got the cardio going. It branches off a lot but from what I can tell the app keeps you on track and it's well marked. you can venture off the branches to extend your hike to northern pets of the park. I saw Mountain bikes when I was on it.

beautiful

popular trail, flat, easy, clean and safe. Roads close buy 25mph speed limit.

Great hike, A dusting of snow at the base and 1-2" on the shady side of the top. Upper 20s and mostly sunny. We did the loop counter clockwise without taking the spur to the lean to. 3.9 miles according to the GPS. We only saw one other pair with their dog. Numerous animal tracks in the snow. We might not have needed them but we used micro spikes on the way down and it made more secure footing.

Stopped on a winter day. Trail short but very icy. The waterfall tumbles over and under the huge rocks. Probably hard to see in mid summer.

Clean easy walk.

This trail is beautiful in the winter! The nice, flat trail makes for an easy walk in the snow with various ponds and streams along to enjoy. We crossed the road at the end of the trail when you reach the other game lands parking lot because we wanted to see Springfield Falls. We weren't sure if we were allowed to keep going because it looks like somewhat of a continuation of the trail but goes right behind people's houses, but we saw someone out sled riding with his kids and he greeted us and asked if we'd hiked this trail before, so it must be fine. Unfortunately, the trail leads to a gated small bridge over a creek that you aren't able to cross (the man I mentioned previously told us it's apparently unsafe) and the creek was fairly deep, so we couldn't continue to the falls. There may be a way to keep going along it or a shallower spot to cross, but we were just ready to turn around. In the warmer months that wouldn't be a problem regardless. A very enjoyable and scenic trail.

This is a two part review.
The first part of the trail was from Flat Rock to Waggoners Gap. The trail was rugged and extremely rocky with numerous hills to ascend. Hiked this section on May 4,2018. A gallon of water was not nearly enough to carry, even with the fullest effort to conserve. Hiked all day and only made it about 14 miles before running out of light. With that being noted, we abandoned all hope to proceed and ended the journey at Waggoners Gap.
Just returned from the second leg of the journey (January 12,2019), which began where we left off at Waggoners Gap. This section of the trail was rocky, however, not nearly as the first trek. This section of the trail was MUCH easier, with numerous ascents and descents, though the trail seemed well “manicured “. During this trip, we hiked a continuous 15 miles, following the Tuscarora Trail into the AT at Miller’s Gap. As stated previously, this section of the Tuscarora Trail was ridiculously easier than the first section, and I feel somewhat upset about it. In all, we began this leg at 0545 and ended at 1600, well before running out of light.
In conclusion, the first leg from Flat Rock to Waggoner’s Gap is sheer, unforgiving Hell, while the second leg from Waggoner’s Gap to Miller’s Gap is more like walking a well maintained powderpuff trail.

One of my favorite places in Bucks County. Was lucky enough to grow up a few minutes from here and it's still one of my go to spots when I want to get out in nature!
