I will definitely do this again but I can tell why almost every review says you'll get lost. It is maybe one of the worst blazed trail I have ever been and is the worst around the baseball fields. But I loved the hike and the challenging hills. When the elevation says it's going to go up just be ready to climb.

very difficult but absolutely worth it. We took the long way and hiked about 6 miles. lots of rock scrambling! would recommend to experienced hikers.

Fun hike but trail not marked well, so when your hiking keep your eyes out the trail markers or you’ll get on the wrong trail fast.

This is a wonderful trail with various habitats! The trail rises and falls through hilltop meadows with fantastic views, meanders along wooded creeks and skirts around rolling forest. The steep climbs are hard but rewarding with the views you get of the Lehigh Valley. The north ridge is more secluded and offers a chance to be alone on the trail. Pack some snacks and have lunch at the new bridge that crosses Jordan Creek on the north section! Trexler Border Trail is a fanatic place to lay down some miles and see the beauties of Lehigh!

I cannot say enough about how amazing this place is but be sure to plan your visit around one of their big fountain shows they are truly a spectacle.

nice little walk. took about 1.5 hours.
through fields and a little through woods.
not bad views over fields.
well marked red trail.
parking enough for about 20 or so cars.

Fun easy trail

Been frequenting this sanctuary for almost 24 years......Thank You!!!!
Great place to revel in lifes journey through all the MADD SEASONs whilst pondering The Power of the Myth; and trying not to encourage the ENTERing of the SANDMAN ;)

Great scenic route..Obviously would be better in spring/summer

Should be beautiful during seasons when lighting and fountains are switched on, not great during off seasons—not worth the ticket fee.
No fountains or lighting were turned on and some accessible paths were closed, just the conservatory was open and pretty.

Definitely NOT dog friendly. To follow suit with rest of reviews everything in the woods is NOT mountain bike or dog friendly the long crushed gravel on both sides of the creek are. A good place for a quick trail run if you're not with the pooch. Plenty of wild life! lots o fox recently.

Pretty short hike with 3 waterfalls. Very well marked and maintained.

Usually very busy with lots of people but the waterfalls are pretty. Very easy hike, great for kids, not great for strollers because there are some stairs to climb.

Loved this trail! There was several points with some breath taking views. It involved a lot of moving around rocks and some climbing which I liked. Absolutely beautiful!

This is a challenging trail but when you finish it’s really rewarding. Plus you get the awesome view! There were many bear tracks which put you on edge but in a good way.

Nice little hike that has a some nice views along the trail to an overlook of the Lehigh river. Definitely was able to see more during this time of year without leaves on the tree. Trail is relatively easy to follow in the snow and if you're looking for a short hike to get you out of the house this is right up your alley.

Definitely not dog or bike friendly on this side of the creek. The main trail following the creek from papermill road allows dogs and bikes but that is it. IMO not a great use of the land and trails. As mentioned by other reviewer, the opposite side of the creek is a wide crushed gravel path for bikes, runners, leashes dogs and families. If you are looking to find quiet peaceful nature, this ain’t it.

Very hard to follow correct trail. Poorly marked route. But great hiking otherwise.

2.5 miles hiking solo today! Solitude and spectacular nature are the best!❤️

Had a great 3 miles hiking with my sister. We saw a cute fox and along the trail we spotted cows and bisons (they must belong to the zoo). Totally enjoyed it!

good place to go get in 4 miles

Some very steep slopes. Beautiful scenery. Some signage not very well placed, easy to miss green trail if not paying attention.

Cute little easy trail

I suppose if you live close by or are in the park already this would nice to walk but don’t make a special trip.

Nice walking/hiking trails but the trails are NOT dog friendly. Since this app said dogs on a leash were permitted I took my Jack Russell Piper. After a few glaring stares I realized that the hiking trails are not dog friendly. So if you want to hike this please do not bring your dog. On the other side of the creek is the Pennypack Park Path which is dog friendly but is basically just a walking/biking path, not real fun hiking.

This is a challenging trail with a vertical rock wall and several near vertical climbs. If that's in your skill set, it is worth it to do this loop.

Great trail.... I will warn you though this trail is moderate to an avid hiker. It is definitely very challenging. And we did have to scale rocks to get to the top of the north lookout. We came in the opposite direction however meaning we started with the river of rocks trail and then climbed up the mountain to then climb up to the north lookout. All in all a very good hike.
