Great hike! So very quiet. My dog and I started on Old Laurel Run Tr and linked up with the Fire Tower Rd, Midstate, Spruce Gap and Three Bridges Trails. Took us about an hour and a half, not including the time we spent wondering around the top of the ridge. Spruce Gap Trail is steeper and has loose rocks, but you can catch some glimpses of the mountain side. Weather was perfect, looked like rain but it was cloudy and breezy most of the hike. We began our hike around 5 p.m. Will do again. Accessible and fun.

Beautiful day. Towards the end lots of clear cutting which made the trail rough. No real views but a great workout.

Pretty steep climb with more gravel than I'd like but shady and quiet in a beautiful wooded area.

Great for a workout and mushroom viewing. Took a connecting trail at the top after the fire tower instead of walking along the road.

Challenging trail. Nice for seeing mushrooms, picking blueberries. There are few good views, however, and the fire tower is closed. Pretty mountain laurel at the start too.

Dope trail

I would call this moderate to difficult!!! But I appreciated the challenge and stream and flowers to be seen. You can avoid the roads by taking lesser marked / upkept small trails and still do the loop.

Fun trail, difficult descent, not very populated, also a very difficult climb up. However walking on the roads at the top is very pleasant

I would not call this an easy trail for beginners, it has a little more than 1000 Ft elevation and slippery area which would be safer with hiking shoes on.

Well maintained trail. It is a cardio challenge going up. About 1,100 ft elevation gain from the trailhead to the tower. I would come the same way I came up next time, as the trail on Spruce Gap Trail is washed out and rather tricky with those smaller rocks.

This trail is in better shape now. several miles have been brush cut and blazes refreshed at the Reeds Gap state park end this October 2011. blowdowns from Reeds Gap to the picnic area along Bear Run trail have been cleaned up. The rest of the trail to Poe Patty should be done next October 2012.
