Two buddies and myself did this route but trimmed some of the fat off the planned route to get it to 10.5 miles. We went after a day of rain and overnight light covering of snow. This meant some mud in spots but also active creeks/runoffs. These full runoffs made for a few fun crossing that had dinner options with logs that were just a little too slippery for our taste. These sections were marked with the yellow and black diamond sign for the first 1/3 or so. The trail also featured some walking next to roads but there was a paved walking path and barrier. Nice chunk of the route was fire access roads. Hiked with a friend who called it “very bikeable”

This trail is just technical enough to be interesting. There are also flat spots that allow your mind to wonder a bit and admire the tall pines. It’s also not so well-known that you’re battling other runners or hikers on the single track portions. Only downside are the selfish dog owners who don’t keep their dogs on a leash.

Lovely trail so close to downtown with amazing views of the rivers, downtown and the North shore. Best views are with the leaves down. A few muddy areas that were slippery with the downed leaves. Parked on Republic near the trail entrance there, so the street section was last. The dogs loved it.

There is no hiking trail. A lot of thorny bushes and brush to walk through if you try to follow the trail map. Use the ATV trails.

Pretty views of the Susquehanna River especially now that the leaves have all fallen. Good birds- saw a sand hill crane , some ravens, and tundra swans most notably.

Great paved trail - I’ll say mostly flat as there are a few hilly bits. Well-maintained, very little litter (which is surprising as there aren’t many trash cans along the trail). Multiple access points, but not all have bathrooms so if that’s a concern for you, then make sure to plan accordingly!

Needs still a lot of trail maintenance but I did some but again needs more. Went counter clockwise on the trail loop.

It’s definitely a walk and not a hike. It was flat. The one thing that was nice was the wide trail. Lately, trails are overgrown and we come home with ticks every time. We didn’t have to be concerned about ticks this time. It’s probably pretty in the spring and summer.

Great easy trail with views, waterfall, couple ponds. Prefect trail for a family hike. Kids loved it. PEEC does a really nice job keeping trails maintained and putting together educational packets to use during the hike.

great trail to hike..it is closer to 12 miles. info center in parking area says it takes about 6 hours to hike but that’s misleading. was able to do it a little over four. i’d also give this trail a difficult rating in reguards to length and terrain. some of the trail markers were missing in spots that confused and once took us off course briefly but we figured it out. there’s also other shorter trails at this site all with the same start points and looping.

Beautiful ! Will def do it again

Beautiful hike following thanksgiving weekend! Not too busy and awesome weather! Trail is well marked and maintained.

Trail is well marked, a good climb to the top with great views of MT Tammany and the Delaware River. Started at 8:30 am and only saw 3 people on trail all the way to the top. Many more on the way back down and the parking lot was full when I got back to the truck.

This trail was obviously just added by someone who was walking around in the woods and decided to record their hike and post it here. About 1/3 of this is not even in North Park and does not follow marked trails. GENEROUSLY giving it 2 stars as I like an adventure and finding myself on the railroad tracks was fun. Also, so good elevation if you like that kind of challenge. Otherwise, I would stick to North Park’s marked trails as there are plenty of them to create a hike of this distance. Also, tromping around on unmarked trails is very bad for vegetation and is poor hiking etiquette.
