We LOVED this trail! Parked near the hotel and water tower, plenty of ample parking and AllTrails location is correct. Two moderate level hikers and a 30lb pitbull. It was a Thursday afternoon to evening, overcast and cool. Started at the water tower and did a portion of the reservoir trail before heading up. A lot of folks have mentioned the ATVs but we didn’t see any until we reached the summit. In fact, we didn’t pass a single soul but could hear voices ahead of us. The climb is rocky but not as bad as some of the Pocono trails. Lots of slate and pine trees. Wear hiking shoes. Steep but not difficult, no scrambles and the trail is wide. The views on the way up are outstanding, but the top is so awesome. 360 views of the mountain range and lots of spots for pictures or to stop for a snack. I recommend taking time to explore once you reach the top! We got wraps from the Purple Pepper in town and enjoyed them while eagles were flying above our heads! Took the loop down, which does join with some of the ATV trails for a bit but still only saw one, and they were very respectful of us and our pup and nice and distanced. This was post-Isais rain so there were a few flooded spots but enough room to walk around. Some loose rock on the way down, so I would recommend hiking shoes and poles if you are unsteady on your feet or have knee issues. Did the whole thing in a very relaxed manner, so climb was about 1.5hrs, 30 mins at the top and then down about an hour. We wanted to be at the peak for sunset. Some tips: the trails are not marked. Use your app to navigate so you don’t get lost. We hiked on an overcast day but there is minimal shade if it is sunny. Also, bring bug spray and plenty of water. If you are hiking at dusk, a flashlight or headlamp is fine, not a ton of wooded areas so it stays pretty light. We didn’t need ours. It IS private property but open to the public so don’t let any signs freak you out! Would be a great hike for a family of all levels of hikers, and super dog friendly. Our little lady loved it!

Some nice views once you get to the top. The trails are not marked and there are several different path choices. The app is helpful but there are portions of the trail with no cell service. Because of this, you may need to guess which way to proceed in many instances. Aside from the trails being unmarked and not maintained very well, its definitely worth checking out if you are passing through the area.

Wow, view was worth it! Lots of rocks, and the trail wasn’t marked well. Used this app to stay on the loop!

Awesome trail. Some parts are very rocky. Walking sticks recommended. Trail could be a little better marked. But it was overall very nice. I would do it again.

Lots of fun! Did it in a stock 2020 4Runner with no issues. Plenty of paths to take and spots to go around any hard spots. Some nice views and fun places to mess around off road.

Going up I took the left branch and it was good to go. I believe ATV’s use it so it was well traveled. Coming down I completed the loop and it was rocky all the way. I might recommend coming back down the ATV trail especially if you don’t care for rocks. The payoff at the top was fine, but nothing great. That’s just me. I did hike early so temps were low and I used my AllTrails app because of GPS. Came in handy.

Locating the site was extremely difficult. Street entrances are closed due to construction. Once we were able to get into the park, there were no signs nor obvious trails. We did see one nice and secluded camping spot with a fire pit.

I hiked at night starting about 8pm and ending at 10:45pm. Its ALL uphill & very rocky so be prepared to wear HIKING sneakers and bring a sweat rag. Amazing views halfway up and on “Top of the world.” Follow my recording and it’ll get you entirely around. First things first is the trail starts where the paved road ends (uphill). On the way back down you’ll cross a few small swamps that you can easily walk around. I have no mud on me. If you go after 8pm bring a flashlight as well as a backup & enjoy! Don’t forget the bug spray.

Pros: Mixed terrain, Dry land, fun hike, good camping site. Cons: Too many bugs! Don’t pick a sunny day for this trail! Cuz there’s hardly any shade. Slightly cloudy is the best day for the trail. Also keep bug spray in handy. A moderately difficult hike!
