If you hate snakes, be prepared. Not small snakes either. This hike is beautiful and super fun to explore and walk close to the water but there are a lot of water snakes on the rocks and trails. The vegetation reminds you of being somewhere tropical. Easy, relaxing hike. Great hike for all that enjoy hiking and exploring. You should wear hiking shoes, I saw multiple people wear sandals and there are many places to trip and fall. The trail isn’t flat by any means, and you need to watch where you step.

beautiful hike..takes you along the river and you walk out on the rocks...takes you to Cucumber Falls....did get lost at times...took you by the Allegheny passage.

Beautiful...lots of fern, very little rock, nice hill climb to get the heart pumping

I took my 2 and 4 year old on this trail and it was the perfect training wheels trail. A couple muddy bits and a few hills but very well maintained. Also moderately trafficed.

The trail head is easy to get to. It's just directly over the Bridge from 'downtown' Ohiopyle . Fun trail climbing over rocks near the water. I started the trip clockwise (by mistake) and when the trail started heading into the forest, I wanted to stay by the water because it was just so nice that I just followed the trail back the way I came counterclockwise- took about an hour to do it that way and I just skipped being in the woods cuz they had some mosquitos. The highlight is really being by the water.

Nice

Great trail for a day hike. I would travel counterclockwise and there are a few areas where you can venture away from the trail towards the river for some great scenery of the rapids. If you are in the area go ahead and put this on your list!

I did this hike out to Mile 0 after starting at 70 the week prior. The hills are rough, but some beautiful views. The coming down to the shelter from mile 7 is brutal!
An awesome hike! These last 6.5 miles, in my opinion, aren’t as a beautiful walk as the rest of the trail but still beautiful. Be sure to wear good shoes and carry water!

Great hike with beautiful scenery and a wonderful outlook towards the middle. I definitely would consider this trail moderate difficult rather than easy, though. Quite a bit up upward climbing! Lovely trail.

I loved this trail one of my favorites so far just enough of a challenge for me only issue is part of trail the bridge is out and was never replaced so had to walk thru the water

Fun trail next to the water!! Great views! Super busy and saw multiple snakes which def not a fan of.

A little tough to follow the first half mile, although a beautiful run. The rest is easy until the climb. A good run.

This hike is short, moderate difficultly, and full of diverse scenery. I completed the whole thing in 2 hours with also exploring most of the curiosities along the trail. This trail consists of abandoned cabin foundations, a small pond, an over look of the valley, various types of trees and foliage, cool large boulders and moderately steep hiking! I would recommend for a quick fun hike!

Fantastic trail. Took the advice of some other reviews to hike counterclockwise for the views- incredible!

Not very well marked at all. Got lost a couple times and eventually turned around.

Perfect warm up trail. Bit muddy when I hiked but the group I was with started at ferncliff, and it was a great trail to stretch the legs on and enjoy the forest scenery.

Excellent trail with beautiful scenery. Came from high bridge and hit cucumber falls at the end and it was well worth it. had the gorge trail to ourselves, but the falls themselves were a little crowded since it's a popular spot right next to the road.

Great rolling trail following the river. the last bit has a decent elevation change. Make sure to stop at Cucumber Falls.

Great challenge. As a beginner it was very tough. But we made it to the 6.4 mile spent the night then back out for some burgers and icecream at a great little place by the viewing spot. Took everything we had to get back. Not a good beginner trail but great views none the less!

Nice, easy trail. Very little traffic until I got near the falls. This was my 1st hike at Ohiopyle, looking forward to alot more.

Rain was light and steady but the trail was great. 50 degrees on the 1st week in dec 17.

Amazing trail, amazing views. Definitely challenging on the hills and not too much flat hiking except up in the ridge. Hiked in to the shelter area for an overnight and back the following morning. I think the first big climb on the return hike is the worst..."switchback mountain".

Nice view! Super easy to get to.

This was a very pretty out and back hike. Be sure to stop at the Cucumber Falls in the beginning of the hike or you'll miss a hidden gem!

I'm not sure why they're calling this the Sugar Run Sneak Trail. It's actually a section of the Kentuck Trail which intersects the Jonathan Run Trail across from the upper falls area of Jonathan Run, and then follows the Jonathan Run Trail downstream to the GAP. If you then walk a short distance (probably no more than a quarter mile) along the GAP toward Connellsville you can easily get to Sugar Run Falls just off the GAP.

Too crowded and confusing.
