Enchanting forest, wet and muddy, connect to campground trail for views of the marsh and bog.

Pretty, easy, accessible

Beautiful trail for hiking. An easy walk in the spring, but LOTS of standing water on trail. Be prepared to make detours through the woods. Some great spots for stopping with lots of shade. Will be back again!

This was a nice trail through the hardwoods and a portion along the water edge. We had to cross the road twice and the trail was marked well.

We enjoyed our time on this trail. It was a little muddy in a few low spots. You do need to cross a road (twice) but no cars were traveling that road so it wasn’t busy. My ten, five, and one year old enjoyed themselves. We liked the lake views the best. There are a few benches along the way as well. We brought a stroller with the only problem being the muddy areas. Overall it was a nice hike with flat terrain. We could easily do two laps of this trail.

It’s a great trail along the stream. Definitely need hiking boots or plan on getting wet feet. Planning on going back for sure. No cell service so you can’t record it.

This hike is very short and mostly on a wooden raised trail or paved road. There are interpretive signs along the trail educating you about the lake and the wildlife in the lake. Great hike for all seasons and all ages.

Easy and flat trail with about 1/2 running along the lake in Black Moshannon. Views of beaver lodges... and worth the time if you're in BlackMo.

Walked this trail today. Very little mud due to a lack of rain. Also, no bugs but it is October. Very nice walk through the woods.

This was another easy hike. The only issue today with the hike was the down trees covering the trail. But we were able to get over them to keep hiking. My dog definitely enjoyed this one as well.

This is definitely an easy hike. Great for all skill levels. I had my dog along with me as my hiking buddy today. But it’s great a little to walk to walk and look at the water. There are some information boards along the way. To read about animals and plants in the bog.

This trail was SO MUCH FUN! It’s so overgrown in spots that you would get lost if not for the well-maintained and strategically placed blazes. Your feet WILL get wet and you will be navigating through (at times) waist high vegetation. It really felt like an adventure. We used a lot of bug spray but there were still plenty of gnats and mosquitos bothering us. We saw NO poison ivy or ticks AT ALL despite how overgrown everything was. If it was closer to my home, I would be here every weekend. I loved it!

Black Mo is a treasure! One of my favorite places to kayak as water is usually quite placid.

Beautiful trail with variety of views. Always expect soggy (boggy!) parts and flooding after heavy rains. Well marked and very few, if any, people. Buggy in the summer and can get overgrown pretty fast if it's been raining a lot.

The trail was flooded most of the way. Waterproof shoes were recommended but the water and mud was well beyond ankle deep.

Easy. Wheelchair accessible. Great views on the Lake. Wooden pathway through the bog. Carnivorous Plants.

This was my 2nd time on this trail, the first in the very early spring last year and this winter. We went early so it was very cold - frozen trees, fog everywhere, frozen lake, and snow covering the boardwalk. Absolutely beautiful. It's pretty any time of year. Can be wheelchair/stroller accessible if you just turn around at the end of the boardwalk or bird watching pier instead of completing the loop going through the trees to the road and back to parking area.

Nice short hike on a well marked trail that mixes lake views with a nice stroll through the woods. Tons of lily pads on the lake, some that were blooming. Only downside is automobile noise while the trail crosses and goes near the road. Other than that, a great way to spend an hour or so.

Great trail overall. The bugs were pretty bad, and I forgot spray. The trail was well maintained and marked.

Easy trail. Very grown in currently. Wear pants or a ton of bug spray. Wear waterproof shoes/boots. Saw 8 deer and no people on a Sunday in June. I would increase the rating if it weren't so densely packed with ferns and high grass.

Took advantage of a break in the rain to run the trail. While native to Pennsylvania, we currently live in Arizona so it was great to get a trail run in the forest instead of the desert! Easy to moderate trail. Loose rocks, muddy sections, and slick from the rain made it a little more challenging, but the weather was cool today due to the rain which made for a nice activity.

Beautiful and peaceful
