Pretty good! I think the trail changed bc you can see a white arrow that gets blacked out, and an alternative route- so it may be different from the map outline shown on the app. From the stables, you follow the paved road for a bit, passing two yellow trail entrances, and finally hit a blue AND white entrance. Starts together, then separates

Good hiking, some deep incline keeps the variety. But the trail markers are very poorly kept. Pretty hike, spots by the water are gorgeous. Plenty of areas for rest and to refill on water.

Really nice walk. Couple of hills to go up and down (watch for roots). The map on this app DOES NOT match up with the actual white trail. With about a quarter left in the walk make sure to pull the app out and follow the red gps line (pretty much end up on the yellow trail).

Took my Jack Russell Piper out to hike there today. Lots of fun we had the place to ourselves, she wasn’t a big fan of meeting the horses but other than that we loved it. It’s got just enough inclines/declines to keep it interesting but manageable with my repaired knee. Will be taking all three dogs the next time!

The first half of the hike was great but after the half way point the All Trails map took us way off course which was disappointing. I recommend the blue trail over the white trail.

Not that well marked and gets a bit confusing with alternative trails that are available...

Very nice loop with good variety of flat and hills. Many roots and rocks on the trail so need to be mindful of your footing. We did the entire loop on a sunny Saturday afternoon in October. Parts near the roads are more heavily traveled, but it is still a peaceful trail.

I've hiked this trail in its entirety 3 times so far, and it definitely earns a moderate rating. I prefer the sections near the water (doesn't everyone) but it has its fair share of hilly forest and a bit of open field near the petroleum pipeline (oh, yay). It can be rather flat in sections but also has some rather challenging hills (one of which is practically all gravel and yes, I fell on my butt). Lots of tree roots jump out and try and to grab you. I'd recommend light hikers, a water bottle and hiking sticks for us older folks.

The trails can be very secluded. Brought my dog, we explored a quarter of it. was looking for the water fountain. deff found it. If u ask around ask for the dam. That's really what it is. U can find the dam (waterfall) on the creek. ask about the creek and u find it. The location of the waterfall is no where near the trails. For those chasing the falls lol.. other than that we enjoyed. the trails nothing complicated its very basic. Btw the waterfall is small so weather u wanna make that trip its on u. ppl are just good with taking photos. Like the one u will see of my dog lol...

Great day to hike the yellow trail in my favorite PA State Park.

Good for a run.
A little swampy in the summer. Might be better to come back in fall or winter when the foliage is thinner.

This was a great moderate hike. With such close proximity to the city, it doesn't get much better for a relaxing, quiet stroll through the woods. With a few ups and downs, we were under solid canopy most of the way. While there are a lot of trail intersections, we didn't have any problems keeping on the white trail—just keep your eyes peeled for the blazes on the trees.

Good little loop, I recommend a hybrid though... start at the parking lot near the main office, walk across the street + along the horse farm, then get on the White Trail via the paved road. On the White Trail cut over to the trail right alongside the creek until you run into the paved Sycamore Mills Rd. Walk along that to the Falls/Dam, then use Forge Rd -> Yellow Trail back to the parking lot. Lots of ducking and dodging if you're over 5' tall!

enjoyed this hike but there were a couple of confusing spots where I didn't know witch path to take. there are quite a few steep hills that are riddled with rocks and branches so people with joint issues or plantar fasciitis be aware that you'll be sore later. nice creek views here and there, nature and wildlife surround you most of the time. all in all I enjoyed myself and will very likely return in the near future.

It was a nice, quiet hike. More hilly than I expected. A few of the climbs were steep enough to have me bent over to maintain balance, which was fun. Started on the yellow and got lost early on, ending on the white trail.

Bring bug spray! Yellow, white, and blue trails are all narrow dirt paths.

RCSP Yellow goes from park office parking lot to pavilion #17. Yellow definitely has its hills but not as rigorous as other trails. The SE flat section is filled with tall pines, that are very relaxing. The part inside the multi-use trail is the most difficult for climbing, for this trail. The part near the mansion connects to a normally un-mapped (except for alltrails.com) small paved trail that forms an oval close to the mansion garden. Near the park office, where Yellow parallels the multi-use trail, this section is used as a toilet by joggers on the multi-use. I have seen countless puddles (not after rain) & wads of browned tissue thrown along this section. It is disgusting.

RCSP White Trail is confusing. There is one loop north of Painter Rd, and more trail South of Painter. The part most know about and use (because it is all the park maps provide) is north of Painter. The longest colored trail, & overall most difficult. Continuous loop. This trail will take you up & down some big hillsides, several times. One (near #16) is very steep & rocky. You will cross bridges, & other stream areas without bridges. This intersects various other trails. At intersection with red & blue, there is a fallen log cut to make a bench. The portion that follows the creek has weird sandy area mixed with dirt, & oddly, clamshells can be found.

Great park for everyone!
