This is to be an awesome place to take novelist mountain bikers and to go horse riding. It had a little bit of everything. Then somebody with their Infinite Wisdom decided to make it off limits to everybody except hikers. This caused all the trails to get overgrown with weeds and jager bushs. Very sad.

I'd give this a better rating because I use to love riding my mountain bike and horses here but some dipstick decided to make it off limits to anyone other than hikers. Now it's all overgrown.

This trail was a water-loving dog’s paradise. Both my dogs played and cooled off in the numerous stream crossings. Make sure you wear waterproof boots or shoes, and I recommend long pants and plenty of bug spray. It was muddy in several areas but was truly a relaxing, easy and beautiful hike and the trail was easy to follow. We got there at 9:00 on a Saturday and did not encounter another person the entire time. I definitely will be returning to this trail with my dogs.

We love this trail and have hiked it repeatedly. It's a lovely stream walk through lush foliage. Part of the fun is that the trail crisscrosses Roaring Run repeatedly. Like 25 times. If there has been rain, it may be difficult to remain dry-shod on a couple of the crossings. Take poles or grab a walking stick so you can balance on rocks and logs to cross. Download a map of the Roaring Run Natural Area so you can see the various parking options. Also, you can easily make this a loop by linking up with other trails you will see on the map. The Roaring Run Trail itself is not steep, but it is muddy and rocky in places. If you connect with other trails for a loop, there are some steeper bits as you climb out of the valley where the stream is. Avoid the Painter's Rock Trail out of the valley unless you want some serious hill climbing on a narrow, rocky, rarely used trail. In summer, long pants and insect repellent are strongly advised, as on any woodland trail in PA. If you access the trail from County Line Road, smaller kids can do the first part of this hike, but they will get wet, because why not? When they get tired, turn around and go back. You have to walk in a ways to get to the stream. Maybe half a mile? But then it's a stream walk all the way up the trail until you intersect the Hillside Trail at the head of the valley. Big happy water-loving dogs will be in heaven.

A pleasant trail with moderate rocky terrain and hills. It is quite wet as it is part of a large watershed are. Pay attention to the route since the Makenna Trail intersects and joins it; you can go right past some of the turns if you’re not careful! The Mt. Hope School foundations and a Spring house were lovely caveats to the sights.

First off I counted 36 stream crossings from the top of Roaring Run to the merger with Painted Rocks. Of these, 30 are not easy in Spring with snowmelt. So either go in Summer or bring waterproof boots.

Wear pants. There are fields of thorny vines on most trails with some areas overgrown. This was in mid March.

Otherwise I enjoyed the hike. Didn’t see anyone else.

Coming up from the County Line TH, fairly step at first then a lot of rocks before leveling out near too.

Good series of trails you can piece together in this area. Did the about a 10 mile hike all together in December and it was difficult due to snow and multiple stream crossings but a great hike for those that like a bit more of a challenge. Plan to revisit in the spring and when i don't have to worry about dunking my foot in freezing water! Have waterproof boots or plan to get your feet wet.

This is a strenuous trail. You cross water so good hiking footwear is important. Hiking poles help with rocky areas and greenbrier. Trail blazes mark trail grade, not named trails so care is needed to stay on your chosen route.

Visited the trail over the first week of July 2017. Lots of ankle-knee high weeds, grass, jagger bushes. Also lots of wildflowers and butterflies flying around.

I suppose you have to take the good with the bad but I would advise wearing long pants if you are planning to hike this in mid summer. I bet in early spring or fall the trail is clearer with less vegetation growing over it.

Your feet will get wet. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear. Great hike, great exercise.

This is a very nice and suuuper lightly trafficked trail (for reference, I went on Labor Day and didn't see a single soul). Decent descent at the beginning, which makes the hike back a good bit tougher than the way out. The trail is maintained very well for the first mile or so, then tapers off to almost grown over towards the end -- only about a foot wide in some sections with a few fallen trees etc. Aside from the maintenance issues, though, I'd give it 5 stars. Nice trail if you want to get out there alone and the large rocks along the creek make for a nice spot to lounge around and read a book or have lunch.

Side note: The flies were VERY bad when I was there. Come prepared with bug spray if you're hiking during any of the hatches.

Lovely. Very scenic along the creek

Easy to moderate hike. I went in Mid-May after a bit of rain. You have to cross the creek quite a few times and some of the crossings were mid-calf deep. There were quite a few fallen trees to climb over as well. But overall, an enjoyable hike.

The area was beautiful, very remote and peaceful. Although it was difficult to get to it was a very enjoyable time. I took my dog with me, went swimming in the blue water hole. The trails were not marked but easy to read.

A nice trail, moderately maintained. A nice outting to spend the afternoon away from it all. The trail is closed to all but foot traffic, and not very populated at all. I happened across a few fishermen on my outting, but spent most of the day alone with the dog.

The trail crosses the Roarin Run creek several times, none of which are bridged. The rocky bed makes crossing easy, and provides a nice chance to stop and cool off with a few shallow pools that pets are sure to enjoy. My dog had to stop and strech out in every crossing.

The only downside is that some of the trail was not marked well, though the ground was worn enough to find one's way. I believe they are remarking it, though, as I saw signs of fresh paint at the time.

A great little get away, and one to find some peace and solitude back in nature.
