We lucked out with the gates being opened when we visited so the hike was a much shorter one. The trail itself is pretty easy and would be accessible to hikers of all abilities. The view of the autumn foliage in the valley below was outstanding. We had the place pretty much to ourselves as we watched hawks and vultures circling overhead. One point of caution, signs warn of hunting in the area and strongly advise of wearing orange colored clothes if visiting in the fall.

This is the first and hopefully last time all trails has been completely inaccurate. The distance and map are incorrect. Trail blazed? What trail blazes. Not to mention that the pictures are inaccurate as well. Do not attempt this trail without knowing the local area.

Always a great view, whether there's foliage or not. Does anyone know which part of the D&L trail this overlooks? I have biked or walked the entire trail numerous times, and just can't seem to figure out where that bend in the river is!

Beautiful views! Easy trail if first gate is open for it cuts down the hiking distance considerably. If first gate is open the trail is probably at most 2 miles round trip. No bugs or snakes in October so great time to visit

Spectacular view and amazing hike!

Went to this trail twice last year (August 2018& November 2018) and was unlucky with being able to go before they closed in May. Top five favorite hike! It was my second hike and I was very inexperienced with hiking, however if you are careful and wear the right shoes. No issues. Hate that this was closed due to people not doing research and being prepared. LOVED THIS hike!

Hiked here for over twenty years and am still planning to hike it regardless of closure.

I am so sad this trail is closed due to the stupidity of people who cannot respect the boundary at the falls. I am so glad I got to do this hike. Beautiful in the fall when the leaves are changing. The path to the D&L overlook is well worth the extra time. Also beautiful in the sitting when the Mountain Laurel are in bloom I've been told. I hope it reopens.

This trail is awesome! It was a little muddy and slippery but with the right shoes, you are fine! I think they closed this beautiful hike because of someone getting hurt. I would definitely recommend!

Decent, decided to make a loop from behind the school and went up the ATV path. There are a couple nice scenic views at the beginning but after that it’s mostly just trail. Def download maps for the trail as there are little if any markers and the trail is sometimes hard to follow. Lots of spider webs also. Over all a decent trail for a day hike with good climbing but not too difficult. Remember to download maps.

Hands down 5/5.  This is definitely a moderately difficult hike, you should expect a lot of steep rock and climbing at times.  So long as you stay to the path and follow the rules you will have a blast. The trail is pretty well marked and there are warnings posted around the areas that might prove more tricky.

this was my first waterfall hike and the one that started my journey to hike as many falls as I could on the east coast. The hike is a series of 6 or 7 waterfalls and it's well worth it! Checkout Rickets Glenn which is even more gorgeous! Rickets has 19 waterfalls in total.

So we went to the Glen Onoko trail today after seeing a lot of confusing info online about the status. Here’s my take… 1: The Alltrails heading to this article is not accurate. The Glen Onoko trail is closed but the Overlook (inland red) trail is not. Neither is the Shortcut trail (the blue trail) which can be accessed from the Overlook trail. Photo of the trail status from the base of the hike is enclosed. 2: We took to the Overlook Trail to the Shortcut trail to the Overlook point. It’s a pretty strenuous uphill hike, good footwear recommended. 3: When you get to the Overlook point (follow the trail sign pointing to the left that says “Best view of Overlook”), you’re standing on a rock plateau at the top of the 3rd waterfall, and there’s really not that much to be seen. From that point , you can see the portion of the closed Glen Onoko run. There are signs and a small barrier. 4: We went (slowly) over the barrier and almost immediately we could see an excellent view of the 3rd waterfall. We took our time and went about 40-50 feet further and saw the falls from a lower vantage point. It was tempting to the follow the trail further from this point, but we went back to the Blue trail. 5: We retraced our steps and then went beyond the “Best View of Overlook” sign, over a rock to get to the Black trail. There was not a whole lot to see on the rest of the black trail. Overall, a positive experience. We hope they reopen the closed trail in the future (with whatever safety adjustments are needed) as we’d like to explore further.

Very easy hike! Follow gravel road and trail head sneaks up on you on the right hand side after maybe a mile or so walk on the gravel road. Trail winds through some nice woods and leads out to a beautiful outlook. Definitely a very nice hike with gorgeous views of the Lehigh Gorge and mountains.
