Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

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.

Nice trail for a afternoon walk. we did not do whole loop. Trail leads to Shank park. which is nice for kids.

We enjoyed this trail with 2 & 4 year old boys. The only downside is you have to walk along the road (bridge) on the very last part of the trail. But that’s only a very small part of the trail. Overall it was good and kid friendly.

You can go up a steeper spot where it’s a climbing route. Really nice place to see a great view.

We nailed it and went during the worst weather ever! but this trail is sheltered somewhat and the rain/fog didn't effect us much! Made the colors pop in our pictures too :) Eat at the Rickett's Glenn Hotel...YUMMO! Get the potato thing - it was delicious!

Just hiked this trail with my buddy yesterday (3/14/2018)-(3/15/2018) and man it was a tough one for sure. We planned on camping two nights but there was a lot more snow on the ground than we anticipated. The snow averaged anywhere from 5-9 inches throughout the trail. Wednesday we walked in roughly 5 miles and camped by the Iron Bridge after parking off of 220. There were three campsites and they were all really nice with stone fire pits! We woke up pretty cold to the weather in the teens and the wind blowing which we were expecting but once we got hiking we were fine. We made great time along the LT even in the snow because it was really well marked with blazes on a tree almost every 10 feet. It was a little slippery at times but were were prepared so we had little issues. We made it to the visitor center in worlds end state park quite swiftly around 2pm after starting our hike around 9:30am. We decided we didn't want to stay another night on the trail so we skipped where we were going to camp and hustled back to the car. The link trail was nice but there wasn't a whole lot to look at other than the vista in the very beginning. The link was only marked maybe every 30 yards and was a bit hard to navigate especially in the snow so this is why I have given the loop 4 stars. I would definitely hike the LT again but as far as the link goes I don't think I would hike that section again. I hope this review is helpful!!!

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.

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.

Lenape green trail good

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.

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

Most of this trail is part of the horseshoe trail also. This part is clearly marked. It is nice to see a trail with no litter, unlike other nearby trails.

Beautiful scenery and great paths to run on. Can’t wait to see it in the spring/summer.

This was a beautiful area to hike and explore. We loved the moss covering lots of trees and rocks. The snow on logs and sections of ground was also very picturesque. This is a filmmaker's/photographer's dream zone.

However, there isn't much of a trail to follow. We went in the second week of March. There was a heavy snowstorm a week prior, but the snow was only patchy during our hike. According to Alltrails, the trail goes across the river before starting the loop, but there wasn't anywhere to cross the river safely, so we stayed on the side where the trail started. We tried crossing the river on logs which spanned the river, but they were either too thin or not long enough.

TAKE CAUTION if you're trying to complete this whole trail. The river might be even deeper and wider in the spring and summer.

Beautiful scenery! Good hike. We took the dog he loved it too!

Such a nice little hike, many other trails in the area to make a longer more challenging hike.. Balanced Rock viewing area was well worth seeing

Traction needed for much of the hike on the way up. The hike on the way up was very scenic along waterfalls, the hike down was incredibly boring logging path with no views and very wet.

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.

Hiked here many times. Sweet!

A nice hike with no real elevation. Very wet and gushy at places. Pinchot is a very nice park and great for camping!!

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

Absolutely beautiful and amazing. Walking the trails, bird watching or fishing.

In Aug 2016, we camped here with our family of ten and hiked over 15 mi in this park. The waterfall trail is amazing. Steep. Slippery. And gorgeous.

Didn’t like walking roads with no berm.
