Not really Baughman, it stops short of the Baughman overlook and Baughman rocks. The actual trail continues about another mile, crosses the road (where it meets up with a junction of the Sugarloaf Trail) then heads back down to Ohiopyle.

Well marked trail with lots in a short hike. Waterfall, river, and great rock formations and springs.

Started at Kentuck Campground (very close by). Trail was relatively muddy a d slick but well marked. The sections which are distant from the river are unremarkable. The portion along the river and Cucumber Falls make the trek worthwhile. I did the entire trail and cut through town, across the river on the Graet Allegheny Passage trail and got back on the trail to return to my campsite. That worked well but last mile was a lungbuster.

We loved this hike! beautiful woods, rock formations and stream. having 2 little ones backpacked on us made it a little challenging but the loop to Cascades & flat Rock then back to parking lot was about 1.5 miles so definitely doable with the kids. We spent the whole day at the Cascades. there were great shallow pools for our 2 year old to splash in for hours!

This map is actually of Baughman then when you cross the street connects to sugarloaf trail. You needed to watch for an almost uturn about 1/4 after you cross.

Not sure where people are finding the views in the pictures for this trail, because we certainly didn’t see them. It’s not a bad hike, pretty easy going. There’s some cool boulders you can scramble up off the sides of the path in some areas. I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to do this trail though.

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.

Great hike for a Saturday afternoon. If you follow the map, you don’t reach a lookout, but it’s still a great hike with flowing streams and lots of rhododendrons and ferns. Saw very few people for a July weekend. A few muddy spots, probably due to the rain we’ve had, but nothing you can’t get around. Directions to the trailhead are inaccurate— park on Sheridan street or in bike lot and walk down bike trail about 5 minutes.

Nice

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

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

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

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

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.

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!

Can’t beat it!

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.

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.
