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.

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.

still closed as of 6/24/18. Mitchell Trail Loop is nearby which is a nice alternative. it has a spur that leads to Sugar Run Falls that are running flush right now.

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.

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.

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.

Easy trip to a nice falls. If you like easier hikes, this is a good one and give it a five. No altitude with views, but still a nice break on a road trip. I added a little over an extra mile by walking down to the river and back.

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

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).
