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

We have enjoyed this trail for years.. fields, woods, lake, stream, wooden bridges, water fowl and white tail deer, a little bit of everything... love it!!

We have enjoyed this trail for years. It is well kept, beautiful woods and wildlife. The lake is an added bonus for an extremely enjoyable walk..

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.

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

not really a hike, more like a walk. paved ways, lots of traffic noise. better than nothing?

I wanted to add some distance so I parked at the AT parking lot by the Pine Grove Furnace and followed the AT to the back side of the trail.

A beautiful, short, easy hike overlooking Green Lane Reservoir. It's pretty no matter the season.

Nice trail. Muddy in the early winter for the first 1/3 of the trail. But a beautiful walk.

Muddy but beautiful.

the trail system is confusing, I really wanted to do the loop as shown on this AP. Even so, I picked a beautiful day and had a blast. it's early January, and hardly any other people, just how I like it. I will go again and hope to find the loop.

Decided to do the blue trail. was a little muddy after the rain. lots of interesting ruins along the trail. would definitely be going back.

One of my absolute favorite places... i have done this trail and all other trails in ricketts glen more than i can count.

Walked all sections of this trail and enjoy them all.Lots of wildlife to observe and it is well maintained.

New Year’s Day took a hike to the top and the views were beautiful! First time hiking this trail and plan on hiking it again, great workout!

Good little loop for an easy spin, great views of the lake!

Great trail for an easy spin, hard to ride on the weekend when it’s a busy crowd

Went out looking for ice; unfortunately coverage was minimal. We traversed the entire loop without strapping on spikes or crampons. Still a great hike and not another soul out there. We’ll definitely be back when the real cold sets in.

Close to Philadelphia, muddy being that we’ve gotten so much rain. The hike is very easy but not well marked—trail is obvious but which trail not so much. We saw three deer and a fox and we tired our dog out after going for 5 miles.

I love this trail. Great views. Some steep parts. Can get a little crowded on peak days. Highly recommend.

As was indicated earlier, this is not the trailhead to the Rachael Carson trail. It is a suburban trail which would be fine if you lived nearby but it’s not worth a drive.

This was a great hike to do on a nice day when there isn't much rain for the days or week before coming. Wear water proof hiking boots if there has been recent rain. You'll need them as you make your way through the mud and watery trails. Saw some deer on the hike, one was a buck. Very cool. Plenty of great views of the lake as you make your way around the loop. Not very difficult at all. Just a beautiful hike for a nice day. Enjoy!

Definitely enjoyed the short little loop I did! I want to come back and hike the whole thing! Maybe when it's not so muddy.

More scenic than some paved trails. Nicely maintained. Not very nature-esque more just a walk around/through town.

It’s alright. Basically a paved walkway very close/through the capitol. A lot of noise/traffic.

Great trail. Well marked

Would rate a 5 for the hike but many views were of a highway. Still really enjoyable hike and not crowded like I thought it might be for a Sunday during a holiday week.

This is just a glorified asphalt walking trail in a scenic area. It’s pretty but the asphalt and crowds are a deterrent

Nice trail. We did it on Dec 31, 2018. The trails got pretty muddy in the last mile or so where it straightens put away from the lake. The trail had nice views of the lake.

fairly easy trail. a tad muddy after rain
