Tried this trail for the first time today and I loooved it! I definitely think the rating of moderate is appropriate. I would recommend starting on the left side as you really do get the more lackluster part of the trail out of the way. You’ll know when you find that magical part for sure! Definitely some tricky rocks and water crossings. I brought my dog but he became nervous about some of the climbs/crossings and I had to assist him. Overall I really enjoyed this hike and can’t wait to return!

We enjoyed this trail with 2 & 4 year old boys. The only downside is you have to walk along the road (bridge) on the very last part of the trail. But that’s only a very small part of the trail. Overall it was good and kid friendly.

Excellent trail. Varied terrain. Ill be back!

My husband and I have walked the dyke many times and enjoy it. We've also written our bikes up there. It's good for beginners because it's even and level and paved

Had a nice time there in the snow. Easy, enjoyable little hike w/ some cool stone features, and close ups of the waterfalls.

Tons of fun things to explore. I will definitely go back.

If you’re going to do this one make sure you start early. Depending on your pace it may take up to 10 hours. You see a little of everything. Thankfully not a ton of rocks like Pa’s AT.

walking up river via Boulder rock... stop and admire the hippy art work, place is full of good vibes

This is not easy. Wasn’t for me anyways. Was fun though

A really nice area. My first time there today. Many trails off the main 2 1/2 mile loop. Looking forward to going back and hiking up the Monocacy Hill trail. The view at the top is supposed to be awesome!

When there yesterday 3/10/18. I was a great trail. NOT marked well at all. Could not find the second half of the loop. We managed to find it then. Horses are NOT ALLOWED on this trail. We will do it again now that we know where we are going.

I very much enjoyed the loop trail. I did read previous reviews but was unprepared for the degree of boulder scrambling. Pushed me to my limit but slow and steady took the day. Met several nice people on the AT and passed the AT halfway point. Highly recommended.

Great hike. Cold, but sunny day.

This was a beautiful area to hike and explore. We loved the moss covering lots of trees and rocks. The snow on logs and sections of ground was also very picturesque. This is a filmmaker's/photographer's dream zone.

However, there isn't much of a trail to follow. We went in the second week of March. There was a heavy snowstorm a week prior, but the snow was only patchy during our hike. According to Alltrails, the trail goes across the river before starting the loop, but there wasn't anywhere to cross the river safely, so we stayed on the side where the trail started. We tried crossing the river on logs which spanned the river, but they were either too thin or not long enough.

TAKE CAUTION if you're trying to complete this whole trail. The river might be even deeper and wider in the spring and summer.

This hike has a little bit of everything! There is a stream, a view, and some history. If you grab a map you can easily navigate your way through every section of this area in a day. This is a very well maintained, relaxing hike. There are picnic tables and bathrooms at the trailhead which is always nice.

Brought a friend who has never been backpacking for a quick weekend trip and this route worked well. We parked at the north lot and arrived relatively late in the evening but there was a good place to set up camp right at the beginning so it worked out. Water was low but there was still plenty of water available. Relatively easy hiking. Great for new backpackers and a weekend trip.

Great trail, with pleasant views. Cross rolling hills, along a stream, with views from the woods of farmers fields. You will cross seven bridges over streams and a tunnel under 944. At the top of the ridge you can sit on a rock bench and enjoy the view. A bit muddy today, particularly on our way back to the trailhead after the ground thawed.
I will do this hike again.

Best in State College

Muddy but a very well marked along the creek and up the mountain. The trail has beautiful scenery and is very well maintained. The overlook is a nice bonus.

A very short, easy trail. Might be a good one to take a young kid on to introduce them to hiking. Not challenging at all. It's a beautiful spot - lots of old growth trees making it shady on a lot of the trail. It's pretty and relaxing and we've spent a lot of time here. There are picnic tables at the parking area.

Disappointing. The first couple of miles border the a landfill separated from the trail by chain link fencing. A couple of pretty spots toward the end of the trail. The walk back along the rail-trail in only OK. There are much better choices nearby.

Very maintained trail ! Very easy walking out and back and very nice views. If you wanted to nice path for riding bikes from south fork to mineral point.

A nice trail in an urban park. Some parts are surprisingly secluded from the city. However, the trail is very confusing and could use more signs for navigation.

All by myself it was a short but extremely pleasant hike with the exception of the litter thrown about but those who claim to love the outdoors and treat it with total disrespect.

Good workout. I'd rate it between easy to moderate. some hills. scenic.

always a fun hike, i prefer to park elsewhere and do this hike in reverse climbing to sunset rocks then gradually going back down to cars.

my wife and I hike this trail a lot, mostly on the winter. Hardly used in winter but can get real busy in spring and summer . Best part of this trail is I can be on it in minutes because it's barely a 100 yard from my house.

Hiked from Sherwood Dr parking to Darlington Shelter and back. It was a fun hike although the trail was quite swampy in spots. Definitely recommend some waterproof hiking boots. The climb up to the overlook is just enough to get the heart rate going. Nice view. Looking forward to doing this hike again after it dries out!
