Fun trail to hike. Nothing strenuous, but enough uphill sections to get you to break a sweat on a cool fall day. The Cascades did not disappoint. We went after a day of rain, so Meadow Run was flowing nicely. Flat Rock likewise was quite picturesque. And the hike along the edge of the Run down to the Slides was a treat (even if a bit of the trail was under water at the time forcing us to hop from rock to rock in sections). If you like the classic Laurel Highlands nature (hemlocks, ferns, Rhododendrons), you'll love this trail.

Nice hike with a few ruins from an earlier time. Really nice view about 1.5 miles in from trailhead. Trail climbs steeply at times to the ridge a lot of rock formations but limited views, possibly better when leaves are off. Trail follows the ridge before dropping down to the parking area. Purple blazes are hard to see at times, red blazes are more obvious, but the path is well worn and easy to follow.

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.

EZ, but loose rocks covered in leaves. Watch for ankle rolls. I walked to Jonathan Run...very worth it. Then to the Gr Allegh Passage.

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.

Got a little lost after reaching the view at the top. Followed the red-orange/lavender blazes. Brought me to Scenic Trail entrance, just a few hundred feet from where I parked at McCune trailhead.

Beautiful falls, easy short trail.

great trail but during heavy rains it can be soggy in some parts. signage is mostly great.

We hiked from the trailhead off Dinner Bell Rd. to the Cascades. Very nice walk, but some pretty steep sections. Hiking shoes are a must, as well as possibly a hiking stick. Check out the climbing rocks before the falls, then take the low trail at the bottom to the falls. It's a bit shorter.

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.

Beautiful river with browns and rainbows

I would rate this trail as moderate due to the steeper rocky section if you are headed to the natural water slides. You should definitely wear supportive shoes for this trail. And if you are hiking just for the slides, there is a parking lot right by them so you dont have to hike in.

It was an easy trail, some spots were rocky but lots of beautiful views.

I would say this is an easy to moderate hike. A very scenic trail between woods, waterfalls and rocks. Can get fairly crowded on summer weekends on Meadow Run. I would avoid attempting after rain as parts can be very muddy. Beautiful fall trail.

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.

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.

Great hike. Ohiopyle was packed but this hike wasn’t. Unlike the lots for cucumber falls and the slides, the parking lot is large and not many people on this trail this Saturday. I wouldn’t consider easy though with all the steep hills and how muddy the trail can get. I highly recommend hiking boots, even though it hadn’t rained the trail was extremely muddy and slippery. Exploring the rocks where the cascades are, are also extremely slippery. Pack plenty of water, even though shady hiking in August it was hot. Great place to stop, relax and have a picnic! This hike wasnt highly trafficked at all to the cascades but it is difficult to locate and not marked very well to the cascades, luckily we won’t the guessing game.

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.

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!

Great trail and views, I wouldn’t call this trail is easy. It rained the day before so the trail was very sloppy and wet.

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.
