The trail markers ran slim in some places, had to use the shore as a guide.

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

My favorite hometown hiking place!

Beautiful snowy day!

This was a nice surprise! This is a small wooded park behind the historic Bondsville Mill ruins. There is a Creek and a few trails with small foot bridges and rock steps. The ruins seem to be getting a little restoration and markers explain the history of the area.

A very quick and easy hike. Perhaps too easy. Beautiful scenery when you get to your destination.

Nice hike if you’re just looking for a long walk in the woods (not very scenic except for usual forest vegetation...no views or streams). Trail is pretty simple without much hills or rocks and would imagine gets a good amount of mountain bike traffic. The trail does get somewhat close to Firetower Rd where you can see houses which takes away from the solitude a bit. Probably more a problem in winter since the leaves would probably hide the view of neighborhood (except for one house which trail goes right by).

Decent scenic hike around lake with a couple stream crossings. Is typically muddy along most of the northern side of the lake and can be difficult to avoid getting in muck (unless cold enough to be frozen during winter). Also is probably the trail with most traffic in French Creek.

tough, but great.

Nice hike, clearly marked trail. Went with some snow on the trail and was able to get around without issue.

We went there on Sunday January 13th, the road was horrible and full of potholes, the directions were not correct, we couldn’t find the trailhead or the falls, we did trek through the woods and timber to the creek, which was beautiful with the ice, the next person to go there, please mark the trailhead with a sign or something , so others can find and enjoy!

Beautiful as ever but a bit icy. Would recommend crampons.

Not safe for dogs yet. Falls are gushing and icy. Make sure to wear hiking boots, the trail is very rocky and can be slippery at times. Requires some maneuvering.

Not for the faint of heart! Absolutely beautiful in the winter with the icicles! If you’re looking for an easier option than the rock scramble: at the wooden sign at the bottom of the trail go up to the right. You can get to the upper falls and then go back down the same way. I don’t recommend going down the steep rocks.

Nice bike trail with a good restaurant, Rusty Rail, before you go back.. Beautiful scenery, very easy trail for biking..

conditions were perfect. the cold created spectacular views. Best time of year to enjoy this trail without the crowds. don't forget to explore the old train tunnel post hike

there were some parts of the trail that got the cardio going. It branches off a lot but from what I can tell the app keeps you on track and it's well marked. you can venture off the branches to extend your hike to northern pets of the park. I saw Mountain bikes when I was on it.

Very nice trail, well marked. joins up with be at Allegheny passage, take that and wander around the fern trails. Not very strenuous and Cucumber Falls is amazing

popular trail, flat, easy, clean and safe. Roads close buy 25mph speed limit.

Great hike, A dusting of snow at the base and 1-2" on the shady side of the top. Upper 20s and mostly sunny. We did the loop counter clockwise without taking the spur to the lean to. 3.9 miles according to the GPS. We only saw one other pair with their dog. Numerous animal tracks in the snow. We might not have needed them but we used micro spikes on the way down and it made more secure footing.

Easy/moderate depending on the weather. Great views of rural PA

Worth the ride.

Stopped on a winter day. Trail short but very icy. The waterfall tumbles over and under the huge rocks. Probably hard to see in mid summer.
