Not challenging but not simple. Average. Mosquito territory.

The first few lookout points are really easily accessible, but some of the others are more of a challenge. Fun hike and beautiful views!

We have enjoyed this trail for years.. fields, woods, lake, stream, wooden bridges, water fowl and white tail deer, a little bit of everything... love it!!

We have enjoyed this trail for years. It is well kept, beautiful woods and wildlife. The lake is an added bonus for an extremely enjoyable walk..

I love Hawk Mountain. nice views, variety of difficulty, good photographing opportunities.

Hiked from the AT parking lot along 309 to the Bake Oven Knob. Bear Rocks and Knife's Edge were great rock scrambles. They were a little challenging once the wind gusts came but a lot of fun to climb and traverse. The views were great along the way. Super rocky trail though so definitely where boots. At some points you just wish you could put your feet flat and walk for a little without any rocks. If I did it again, I'd skip continuing on to the Knob. While the views are great, the graffiti is awful. My Fitbit registered 12 miles out and back when you include the Knob.

Nice setting to the falls...unfortunately my recording kept shutting down. So its roughly 1.5 miles in & out I believe..my first time here.
Lots of the board walk has been repaired from last year’s tree mess
The main gate in closed so you need to walk the mile up the road to the start of the trail, easy walk with the creek to keep to occupied..

Solid steady hike with a good scramble at the end but we wished we could’ve brought our dog!

be prepared to climb a little bit. definitely not suitable for dogs (at least on the white marked trail). I saw a lot of people there that were not dressed appropriately or prepared for the rock scrambling that this trail has. it's short but fun. the way down (blue marked trail) is a better alternative for access to the top if you do not want to rock scramble. however it is quite steep

Looking forward to seeing this trail covered in snow

Nice hike for a warm New Year’s Day. A bit muddy for sure but that’s to be expected after as much rain we’ve had this year. Some newer areas closed yet but will be nice when complete and all open.

It’s a nice little connector trail between a housing community and the park. Nothing spectacular, and not long at all, some nice wooded areas on the sides of the trail and bird nesting. Besides that you’re next to the bustle of community life and big electric wires. Not much cover, summer make sure you sunscreen up, winter layer appropriately, rainy make sure you have a raincoat. Walk it while you can, it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s paved for automobile use within the next five years.

Followed the white #1 trail and came in at 5.75 miles. Rocky and ‘technical’ on the north side of the ski slopes. Shorter and easier to the south. Refreshments at the Trail’s End Café afterwards. Great day!

We started to hike in from the road and came across heavily posted signs including a log gate blocking the trail with posted signs. Posted by Tumbling Run GP, which is the darker green area on the map, private property. Not sure if you can get permission to hike up it or it is not accessible. The area along the road was extremely wet and difficult to navigate crossing several small streams. We ventured up toward upper Happy Hour trail then found our way back down on a trail not on Alltrails. This trail was exactly following the border of the GP. Was disappointed we didn't get to go up to Lewis rocks but still some good alternate trails to explore.

Awesome trail! If you like hiking across tons of rocks of various sizes, multiple streams and streams among rocks, this is the trail for you. The northern part of the loop borders closer to the actual rock field and provides easier access (south side only gets close at one part then is a bit away from it). Highly suggest some kind of trekking poles for this...will greatly simplify the balancing on rocks/streams/muddy sections. Also need to keep constant watch for the dark red blazes as they can be easy to miss when there is no ground and only rocks on many of the sections (could benefit from a brighter color).

Great time to spend outdoors, amazing views, going counter clockwise is the way to go if you want the whole adventure experience.

Love Rock scrambling!

Nice brisk 32 degree night to stroll the Holiday gardens. Very crowded.

No dogs and it’s a loop along route 19. It’s nice if you live in the neighborhood but don’t go out of your way.

Very nice but be careful with dog. Mine is pretty agile and coming down white trail is very rocky and steep and was extremely difficult to maneuver for him. Would rate as difficult.

Nice bike trail but a little boring

Lots of Rocks! Great workout. I'd suggest boots to lessen the chances of rolling an ankle. Watch out for snakes in the summer months.

Utility road for the first 3 or so miles, easy enough. Then changes to rocky terrain one person wide. Very well marked since it is the AT trail. Very few people, great views.

as others have said we took the white Trail going up which is very Steep and requires stretching and climbing in a crawling position. He took the Blue Trail down which picks up at the very top of the mountain where things level off. Definitely a demanding Trail on the downhill as our legs started to feel like jelly. we did it in November at about 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Can't wait to try again in the hot weather when the breeze is definitely appreciated.

It was a lot of fun to get out and start exploring some of the more impressive trail systems in PA!!!! 11/10/2018

You have to pay. An amazing lookout but you didn’t have to work for it.

A bit confusing if you start at Bowman tower parking. Not difficult

Skyline section is so much fun! I highly suggest doing this counterclockwise.
