Great workout for a moderately fit person. It was very muddy in parts so wear good grip sturdy hiking boots.

my favorite trail.

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

Muddy but fun. I have nothing bad to say about this trail but it does get a little challenging during parts.

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!

This is not a loop trail. A friend and I hiked the Baughman to Sugar Loaf Trail - and that made it about a 10.4 mile loop - with the Kim trail to the Knob thrown in. It was an awesome trail system. Baughman starts off steep and was challenging for awhile if you were carrying a pack. It levels off at the top, and then you have another climb if you choose to continue on the Kim trail to the top of the knob. You come back down the Kim trail and find the Sugar Loaf Trail and it winds its way back down to the starting point. Not hard to follow - everything was well marked. Just be aware you aren't following Baughman the entire way!

Beautiful views of two waterfalls. Recommend to wear hiking boots / shoes with better traction than just sneakers. If you want to get close to the falls, footage gets sloppy (as expected).

It’s not actually a loop if you follow the posts. You will have to cross the road at the lookout and continue on the orange trail. The app kept us on course.

Awesome trail! Well marked with gorgeous views

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".

The trail is well maintained and the flashes are well placed. This trail is a pretty steady incline through the woods. Not really any views until the very top where there is also a parking lot and lots of photographers/tourists.

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.

This is a dumb trail. I would not recommend this trail to anyone. I could have done something similar to this in my local Park in Maryland. It's not challenging and there is no view along the trail. It leads to a viewing area that was crowded with old men trying to capture photos. So all of their tripods were set up and in the way. Then when you try to loop around across the road, it isn't marked at all. We meandered up and down the road looking for the trail crossover and luckily we found it. At no point are the trails marked with a color, so you know the trail markings. The Baughman trail was red going out and then Blue black when we crossed the road and then leaven to loop around Makes no sense to me. Dumb. I do not recommend this trail.

We were immediately greeted with wildflowers pulling into the trailhead parking lot. The trail is rated moderate and is a 2.9 mile loop. My main interest in choosing this trail was seeing the natural slides. We must have taken a wrong turn because we ended at what I thought was a dead end. After looking at a map when we were back in the car, we were actually only 200 meters upstream from the slide… so close! Regardless this was a beautiful secluded walk that ran along a babbling stream. For more visuals of ohiopyle go to sleepydog.dog

This overlook offers great views of the Youghiogheny River Gorge. A one minute walk from car to vista. If you stray off the main path, be careful of the poison ivy! This overlook is about a 5 minute drive from town, and has some trails within the vicinity.

I've been hiking this portion of the LHHT for years. If you start on the trailhead behind Falls City Pub and go about 2 1/2 miles, you'll come to an absolutely beautiful lookout. This trail is definitely not for a new hiker and sturdy shoes are a must.

if you follow the trail to the trailhead of Jonathan's run, you will come to a waterfall.

Nice hike out to cucumber falls will do this one again.
