Great hike! Nice views and a chance to see the river at water level and above

Hiked on a humid Sunday evening. The trail was empty with only a few people at the falls. The trail to the falls is easy, but getting to the pools below is definitely challenging. Not sure if there’s an easier way to get to the bottom. The water is very cold but refreshing and the scenery is fantastic.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. During our trip the trees provided a wonderful canopy from the rain and the hot summer sun for most of it. Great trail with some exciting challenges throughout.

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.

Great hike with the family yesterday. We hiked the outer loop and also all of the extension trails. It was a total of 8.5 miles and that took us 5 hours to complete.

just completed this trail for the first time in many years. I wanted to see the changes over the last 15 years. much of the trail is the same with the exception of two severe blowdowns which have occurred in the last few years. From what I was told there was a teenage girl who tragically lost her life during one of the storms. The trail is still quite and a great place to clear your head of all the day to day stress. I saw many deer for the two days I was on the minister and north country trails and many bear footprints as well.
This trail is heavily used at times in the summer months but you probably will not see many people.

I love this trail. It is a peaceful place and a great trail.

Just hiked this today with my dog (4 month old lab). He loved it just as much as I did. Definitely recommend this trail for someone who’s looking for a beautiful hike with a slight challenge to it. One of the best in the area in my opinion!

Such an amazing place to hike and see all the different falls. Definitely have good shoes for this as it gets slippery. It's well worth spending the day

Great trail for a day hike. I would travel counterclockwise and there are a few areas where you can venture away from the trail towards the river for some great scenery of the rapids. If you are in the area go ahead and put this on your list!

challenging but worth it. not well marked. had to use gps a bit especially at the top and around the look out point. very easy to follow an interconnecting trail and find your self back on a trail you already took. red and orange markets are not clear.
falls are nice. look out at very top is really special.

Great trail Waterfalls were fantastic was a little slippery.

Very easy hike to see a beautiful waterfall. However, this time of year there were a ton of people there swimming and blocking the path. Would go again later in the year.

Really easy trail. Hardest part was walking back up the hill to the car. I would not recommend going after it has rained. Definitely muddy near the bottom. Good for dogs and even kids.

Was fun for our first ever adventure into hiking. Yellow trail was cool and a good start. We had a great day!

love this place

Took the Old Mill Trail from the gravel lot on Deerwood Lane to the river crossing and then through the woods to the Quarry Trail. Stopped for lunch with hammocks next to the lake and followed Quarry Trail back along the lake and back onto Old Mill Trail. Old Mill Trail was pretty muddy after a heavy rain on previous day, but manageable with waterproof hiking boots. Not a very scenic trail, but wide and well maintained. Frequent horse manure. Saw a few fishermen and other hikers, but not many. Old Mill Trail had pretty wildflowers and butterflies were abundant. Even the walk back along the lake didn’t afford many views. Nice trail, with gradual inclines, but not much to see.

Nice hike. There are some rocks & roots but overall it is an easy hike through the woods right along the lake’s edge. The biggest section of undeveloped forest on the lake. There are some points where you can go down to the lake for a good view of the water but this trail is mostly forested. There were two or three trees down across the trail but they were easily stepped over. We had a perfect summer day, complete sun with temps in the high 70s. I would recommend this trail to anyone.

Falls were dried up

Beautiful hike only draw back is the multitude of people and the lack of knowledge on trail etiquette. Not sure there is a slow time but worthy the views

Beautiful trail ! It is not easy and at some areas dangerous and very treacherous . Be careful and cautious- wet and slippery spots .
All worth it though !

My family rode part of this trail today. We started at the boat launch near the Boy Scout camp. We rode to the damn and then down to the water. The trail appeared to cross the water and go up the other side. We were with our 11 and 12 year olds and stopped to play in the water a bit and on the rocks at the base of the damn. We did not cross the stream and continue on the trail. It was a nice trail, mostly shaded. There were a few hills, nothing very steep. It was not very technical where we were. The path was wide most of the way. The trail from the top of the damn down to the stream was through tall grass. When we returned to the parking lot at the boat launch our children fished. They caught \blue gills and a couple of Perch. There is a small playground with swings and restrooms at the boat launch parking area.

Cool trail. Go early to avoid encounters with other humans. :)

very beautiful...And pleasant.. but easy to loose track of the trail..good camspites near the river...

Overall pretty easy with a few steep elevation changes that put it to the moderate level. Actually started running for stretches in some parts as it was so flat. Trails are well marked but the same trail tends to open in multiple directions several times on the trip making it a bit confusing. Watch out for bikers- trails are narrow and winding in some spots so it is tough to see one another coming. You can very easily make your own variations on this trail that would take you about the same distance. Only think I would avoid next time is the part where it takes you out to Summit Ave and you have to walk on the side of the road for about 1/3 of a mile. Still blows my mind that a hike like this is in Philly.

My wife and two doggies use this trail almost once a week with good weather. The trail that follows around the reservoir is well kept and easy to walk. The dogs love running and swimming along the way. You will commonly bump into a few people along the way who are hiking, fishing or kyaking and even horses! Keep an eye out for dangerous algae because last year (fall) it was posted not to enter the water but it's safe now. It's easily one of my favorite hikes.
