Did the Rhododendron trail today! What a beautiful trail but was more challenging then I expected Very steep grades and rocky There’s was still some snow on parts of the trail which definitely added to the difficulty Looking to return when the Rhododendrons are in bloom

Go right at the fork. Not left. Otherwise it’s straight up. I went left and there was too much snow to make climbing safe after a while. I had to back track and of course coming down in snow was more difficult than going up

Fantastic trail! Beautiful scenery, creek, and waterfalls—just moving from Colorado, this trail is very well marked on both trees and rocks (if you can’t find the marker, look down at your feet). With the recent snow, we got lucky that today was warmer (over 40 degrees), which melted some of the ice/made more slushy. The trail also was not packed down—would have been a much harder hike if trail was packed. Did not have spikes on my shoes, but wish I did—had a bit of a fall heading back on portion of hike that goes between the space of two large rocks. Also adds another element as the leaves are very wet under the snow/ice, so there is another layer to slip on. If you go out around the time of this post, bring poles/spikes if you have them.

I completed this trail in 2017. It's a lovely trail, well marked and pretty. There are a couple of very steep climbs. There is a beautiful stream crossing and a lovely pine forest section. It's muddy by the lake. I loved the afternoon I spent here!

Great hike. Fair amount of road noise was the only downside. Otherwise great hike, nice views and the downhill side of the loop was easy.

Over all a great little 5 mile hike with lots of loops to double back Benches to rest some observation points for wildlife viewing if you're into birdwatching probably a great place to come

Stunning hike in mid February! We just had a snow and ice storm so I used the hike as an opportunity to try out my new Petzl Crampons. Without some sort of spikes, the trail would be very slick right now. Getting behind the falls is quite an awesome experience! Careful of the enormous Icicles; a few 10’ by 6” thick ones fell from up top and hit within a few feet of me while near the falls.

I always enjoy my time at Central Perkiomen Valley Park! The environment is extremely well maintained, the ranger(s) I have met her are phenomenal, and the views....I won't even attempt to put them in words. I highly recommend the trip to anyone wanting a nature day! - Matthew John Copley IV A.K.A. (Copescoped)

middle of winter, nobody else around. it was amazing. a little challenging in the snow, but the view made it worth it. even saw a few deer.

Stunning views when you get to flat rock. Trail starts out with a gentle incline with switchbacks then levels out for a bit at the top of the ridge. From there it’s quite the uphill climb to get to the view, but definitely worth it. One of the best views in PA. Lots of rocks and easy to roll your ankles. Also, the descent will have your legs shaking from exhaustion!

Beautiful views from this short climb. Enjoyed all the signs along the way with info about the birds, but no birds spotted while I was there.

I completed this hike yesterday and it was one of my favorites! With construction, there was a different path we had to take where we followed signs and blue ribbons. We did get confused because it seemed like we were going back towards the road but if you keep going, the path winds around and takes you up to the Flat Rock path! Definitely a strenuous hike but the view is totally worth it!

Pleasant enough forest trail setting with bends/curves. There was really only one or two views clear enough to see much from top and that is where the clearings were. At the top of initial ascent is a sign for Hahn's Lookout, but couldn't see too much because of the trees. Good amount of rocks on trail, but not quite as bad as the other side of Wind Gap.

Enjoyed a brisk winter hike. Terrain was frozen or muddy. Got steep at times. Well worn and easy to follow trail. A lot to see along the way.

This is my second time hiking Kelly's Run. It is still one of my favorite trails. it was a bit icy in some spots right along the steam. Care is warranted in the ravine.

My second trip here was November. It was the most challenging hike for me but it is such a beautiful view from the top. Hiking back down was just as hard as the hike up if not harder. Highly recommend this place

Loved the trail with the views...did a hot summer dusk hike...killer spider webs though. Trail not marked very well.

Probably my favorite hike in Schuylkill County. Awesome views and fun scrambling over the rocks. Treacherous in rain and snow though. Wouldn’t recommend going then or when the rocks are mossy.

Easy walk beside a beautiful stream and through some mature hemlocks. Some large chunks of ice near the trailhead to navigate because of the recent weather. I took a deer trail through some rocks which required a little scrambling and had a little exposure that isn't part of the marked trail.
