This trail is incredibly well marked and well maintained. A beautiful walk in the woods. Easy for kids.

pretty well maintained trail. parts of it are extremely technical but definitely a fun ride.

Great bike ride


Lots of intersecting trails here that are marked by numbers. If you go make sure have a map with the trail numbers listed on it or find a trail head sign with the map and take a picture of it. The trailhead I started at didn't have a picture of this map, but the actual fire tower location had the numbered map. Did 7.5 miles and I would return on a non rainy day to some of the bouldering that's available at 2 different locations during the loop off trail.

Around perimeter then up the tower somehow gave me a fantastic 7 miles.

It's a total of an EIGHT MILE loop (not 6.5). That last mile and a half left us in the dark. :(

Very nice hike. I hiked clockwise, which puts the moderate part more than half way in. Trails #13 and #15 were very enjoyable.

I did a little more than the suggested trail (total 7.5 miles), and I absolutely loved how well marked/blazed everything is. The tower itself was a little disappointing, mostly because I wasn't expecting to climb metal ladders all the way to the top (that wasn't the problem) infested by stink bugs! I barely stayed at the top, just because my face was being assaulted by the bugs.

It's most likely my fault that I went the day after it rained and when the weather was a little warmer than usual. Great trail though!

Was a good trail.

Great trail for gravel grinding. Easy 2 mi climb on a slight incline. Paved but mostly covered in gravel. Family friendly, very wide trail so easy to pass at higher speeds. I was pulling my daughter in her bike trailer goin about 18-19 and passing without issue.

it was a very pretty trail, relatively easy good for beginners, would hike it again.

Great trail. Well maintained. Great for biking and hiking.

Wow challenging but awesome. One of my first excursions in trail running. Loved it

Nice trail. I will ride again soon.

Beautiful fall morning - intended to climb Governor Dick but it was way too crowded. Found this and it was beautiful. Mostly packed gravel, macadam in spots. We walked, next time we will bring our bikes.

Easy walking fun to climb the tower. My 3yo and 5yo went with my wife and I. Go Trail 2 going up and 1 coming back down.

Great hike! Clearly marked trails with lots of options. The tower was challenging for me to climb only because I'm not a fan of tight spaces or heights but once at the top it made it all worth it. The views are nice!

Love this and use it a lot for biking, walking and running.

very peaceful

Good mix on the South loop of boulders, hills and flat.

I was here on a rainy day but did the tower anyway and it was worth it. Saw a bird called a chukar partridge (which i had to look up, new to me) that was not afraid of humans and was just going for a walk as I was. I got like 10 feet away from it but it was quick on its feet and never flew.

Trail 15 is rocky and more difficult than the rest of the loop; mountain bikes are allowed, but not horses. Horses are allowed on Trail 13 and the Horse-Shoe Trail. At about a mile before the end of this hike you will enter briefly into Mt Gretna Heights. If you want a break, there is a restaurant with a deck in town (right at 4th, right at Pine, left at Kauffmann, right at Boulevard). If you have time, take Trail 1 to the observation tower.

I came to visit my friend in Lebanon with the family, nice weather today, definitely wanted to get out of the house, good place to break a sweat

Great place to hike with the dog or go mountain biking! Climb up the tower for a view of the valleys. Mountain biking is not really for beginners. Previous 1 star review should be removed because if you have some trail experience you can easily ride the entire loop without walking the bike! Beginner rail trail is located across or down the street depending where you park.

My wife, stepson and I did the entire 6.5 mile loop, including a stop at the tower; it was moderately difficult because we hadn't hiked in awhile, however the challenge was enjoyable and the weather was perfect.
