as a new hiker it was hard to keep to the trail. I keep trying to do the loop but always end up turning back.

Red trail..

Tried this trail for the first time today and I loooved it! I definitely think the rating of moderate is appropriate. I would recommend starting on the left side as you really do get the more lackluster part of the trail out of the way. You’ll know when you find that magical part for sure! Definitely some tricky rocks and water crossings. I brought my dog but he became nervous about some of the climbs/crossings and I had to assist him. Overall I really enjoyed this hike and can’t wait to return!

Excellent trail. Varied terrain. Ill be back!

It was a nice short hike for me but I did get confused when I came off the trail onto a road with cabins.... turns out I needed to follow the road just a short ways down to get back on the trail.

Well marked trail and I just completed this loop based on the hints and directions given in the reviews. Trails are well maintained. Only thing, I clocked just under 12 miles for the entire loop.

Great trail. Love the variety that this trail offers. Lots of uphill and downhill... I hike this trail on a regular basis with my pup.. And only issue is parking. I love this trail!

Love this trail. Trails are well marked. Love the Blue Trail a lot... I followed the directions based on other reviewers. I started off where the blue and red trail meet. Took the blue trail which ended up on Perkiomen Trail. To make a complete loop of the reservoir, you need to take Perkiomen Trail followed by Red Trail. I thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It was my first time there and it was not difficult at all to follow the blazers. Trails are muddy at this time of the year with all the snow melting... I hiked it solo and didn't feel unsecure at any times.

If you’re going to do this one make sure you start early. Depending on your pace it may take up to 10 hours. You see a little of everything. Thankfully not a ton of rocks like Pa’s AT.

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.

When there yesterday 3/10/18. I was a great trail. NOT marked well at all. Could not find the second half of the loop. We managed to find it then. Horses are NOT ALLOWED on this trail. We will do it again now that we know where we are going.

with the recent snow and rain the falls looked great, just made for a very slippery,muddy and sometimes treacherous hike on the rocks. took the scenic route as well. went up past the falls, crossed on some dry rocks and went back down the other side. was a fun time.

Nice enough trail, great workout. Like another reviewer said, the trail is VERY poorly marked, in areas....if I hadn't downloaded the AllTrails "interactive" map, I would have really been wandering a few times! I hiked it 2/18, and it was really muddy, but it had been a particularly wet week or so previous. I can imagine when there's a lot of horse traffic, it gets to be a mess. Lastly...the mileage and elevation figures are a bit low. My Garmin, which tends to be a bit "stingy" with the numbers, said it was 7.1 miles and 1380' of elevation gain.

Well marked trail. Peaceful

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.

Great hike and even better waterfall. I absolutely love this spot. The spot to park can be a bit tricky to find the first time. Once you find it, there's a descent down to the waterfall. The waterfall itself is very, very pretty and excellent for photography. We have had the falls area all to ourselves at times, and at other times have found it a bit crowded. I guess that just depends on when you go. The hike out is steep but it's not long at all.

Great, well-maintained flat gravel trail. I hiked from the trailhead on Rt. 230 to the intersection of Rt. 743 and back, but you can go farther until it merges with a trail in Lebanon County.

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 went in mid February on an unusually warm day. Lots of people, espically joggers. Trail and historial monuments/places were poorly marked, i believe this is because I went during the off season. Overall though it was nice and relaxing

I did South Loop as an overnight. Parked car at lot on Bushkills Falls Road at Flat Ridge Road since my overnight destination was to camp along Bushkill Creek. This divided the loop almost equally in half. West side of loop is wetter and characteristic of wetlands. Expect wet feet. Tricky stream crossings due to recent rains and snowmelt causing higher water levels over what would normally have been a simple rock hop, but there are bridges over the larger streams. East side is higher and drier through logging activity areas, down and up small ridges. The best camping is along south end by Bushkill Creek and Red Rock Run although you are free to camp anywhere along the loop. If you are a hammock hanger, you have even more options. The footpath is typical PA rocky footing, tedious at times . Good winter destination in my opinion because it is obvious where trail could become overgrown quickly with plenty of ticks and mosquitoes in other times of the year. A good example of PA wetlands if you have never experienced it. Also deciduous trees dominant - should be pretty in fall. Plenty of water sources and solitude ( at least this particular weekend in February). I only saw one dayhiker on my way out from camp. Day 1 mileage 8.5 miles. Day 2 mileage 9.7 miles. Next time, I might explore the side trails into the swamps and natural areas.

Beautiful and challenging. Look for the Orange Trail near the convergence at the Conestoga that leads to The Pinnacle!

Great hike

Unimproved dirt road - not a really a trail at all. It’s pretty along the creek but otherwise unremarkable. Easy walking.

our family's Lancaster County favorite

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

I wrote this same review for the trail under “St. Peter’s Village The Rocks Trail”: Living about 20 minutes away, this is my go to hiking spot. The terrain is easy to tackle with plenty of trails throughout the woods, and lots of interesting art to look at (Although some people frown upon it, the art is what makes St.Petes unique. There are plenty of other hiking spots in PA if the paintings spoil the hike for you!). As long as you keep a sense of direction towards the entrance, it will be hard to get lost. One of the most known features among regulars is “Mushroom rock” which is a rock formation shaped and painted like a mushroom. Every now and then people will come through and change the colors of the mushroom. Towards the front of St.Petes is a portion of French Creek littered with massive boulders that are fun to hop around on. Night runs are always my favorite, with the terrain being relatively safe to traverse. It can get busy during the warmer months, but is never crowded at night (Though you need to park down the road due to the gravel lot closing before dark). If youre in the area and looking for a quick, easy, and unique place to hike, St.Petes is worth checking out! (One last note: in the parking lot and towards the front of the woods there is no service. A 5 minute walk into the woods will fix this problem).
