Quite enjoyable for a novice

Beautiful trail with lots of great vistas at the top. Completed the 30.5 in 44 hours, 2 nights, going north bound. The terrain changes up a lot, from flat, incline, decline, rocky, stream crossings and just about everything in between so it is a great trail to get a bit of everything. There are lots of camping sites on the first half from the southern terminous but on the second half we spotted a lot less and didn't see any in the last 6 miles but we were moving quickly because it was raining so we could have missed something. Also the second half is the most senic if you are going north bound. There was plenty a water along the way. We saw 8 people NoBo on the second day and a group of 3 guys and a dog head SoBo along the trail.
All in all this would be a great trail to take your time. I would have love to do this trail in 3 days instead of rushing through but we had a time limit.

This is a very difficult hike but the views were amazing .This was my longest hike ever and I will do it again . I have no complaints at all .

Gas Well Path is a beautiful and difficult hike. The ascent is challenging and beautiful. There are several paths at this park that you can choose to continue your hike. Would highly recommend.

I walk my dog on this trail every weekend. Nice easy trail for my young pup. Hoping to hit harder trails as he matures. It’s nice because you can visit the nature station and trail house across the street before or after your hike. Site also has nature friendly composting toilets and wash station near the parking area. All around very nice setup.

lots of rocks and switch backs moon lake trail crew doing a great job bringing the trails back to life. Follow moon lake trail crew on Instagram for updates.

Did this trail on a weekday in September and only saw a handful of people on it. Steady decline that didn't require too much hard pedaling and numerous places to take a break along with taking some incredible photos. I parked in Jim Thorpe and had someone drop me off at the White Haven trailhead , which worked to perfection. Looking forward to coming back.

We did the Great Oak Nature Trail. This was a Ranger guided night time hike in search of owls. We saw and heard five of them. So exciting. This was a nice trail.

Definitely not an easy trail I’d say it’s moderate lots of hills. Very cool scenery and bring bug spray! Lots of Nats. Also there are about 6 different trails and sometimes not marked very well. So taking a picture of the nap once you’re there will help!

Nice to get lost among the tall hemlocks for a while. I read reviews before I went, especially about climbing over downed trees, but there were a lot more and they were more difficult than I expected. We did counter clockwise to go up the mountain on the switchbacks. It was a climb but manageable. The decent gets pretty steep and you have to watch your step with so many twigs on the ground it’s easy to lose your footing. Watch for the plane crash at the top, still several pieces of wreckage you will notice on the right. Decent trail but nothing too amazing to make me feel like I need to do it again.

Great little area in a place you wouldn’t expect. There are several trails for all different levels and the Monocacy Hill trail itself is a lot more challenging than you’d expect.

Very nice trail, and easy to moderate hike. The orange loop was only 1.7 miles as indicated by the map at the site. The trail was well maintained, got into some deep woods, even seeing a wood thrush on her nest not far from the trail. Only downsides were you could hear a shooting range nearby, and consistent highway sounds, if that's the sort of thing that bothers you. At mid morning on a Saturday we ran into several people, but the trail was by no means crowded. Google maps first took us to a residential street as a place to park (talked to a resident who said that gets annoying), but there's a convenient parking lot at the end of Alpine street.

Love it! Great for kids and has a beautiful stream

Nice walk through the woods. Easy trail.

This map is not 100% accurate to the Blue Marsh Multi Use trail.

Nice walking trail with two historic highway tunnels (being a flashlights)

I love it back there. Never see anyone hiking or wants to hike

Our favorite here is the Creek Trail! It’s perfect for kids.

Hiked the whole trail, with the last 2.5 miles on the low grade. Has to be marked better as I had to refer to the app to find locations. Only one outstanding view, at Turkey Hill.

trail is very poorly maintained. I was trenching through thick tall weeds for a good ½ mile after the bog. lots and lots of downed trees on trail. a few were about 4' above the trail. I love the outdoors so I can't knock it but I did it once and that was enough for me.
I thought with the black forest trail being nearby, I was in for a treat but it turned out to be much less than expected.
overall I won't say terrible but I won't be returning to that section.

zigzag up and down trail that can be paired with red blaze to make loop. too many bikers for my liking

short flat gravel corridor. not much to it

Could be nice. Be careful at the very beginning some asshole broke a bunch of glass. Ny dog almost got cut

Starts off steep then levels out. Only went 20 min in then turned around.

nice trail, but they have done some construction or logging on a portion of the train. not sure exactly what. trail difficult to follow in these areas. would be one star more if not for that.

Just a gorgeous spot even on one of the busiest days of the year. The way the stream has cut through the rock and the tubs and falls it's created are spectacular. Water was icy cold! Where good walking shoes or hiking boots unless you're only going to the tub closest to the parking lot. Will definitely be going back.

Really just a public park, not really a focus on trail walking/running.

I did this trail with another person and we parked one car at one end and another car at the other end. I really kicked our butts. Make sure you bring the necessary supplies. There are plenty of water sources along the path. Lots of hills but nothing too difficult.
