Nice bike trail with a good restaurant, Rusty Rail, before you go back.. Beautiful scenery, very easy trail for biking..

Clean easy walk on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Easy, beautiful stroll.

One of the prettiest sections of the entire trail from Pitts. to DC. Has highest point on trail and very long tunnel.

I've walked this Trail by myself and with my dog and let me tell you I've never seen so many people cleaning up after their dogs which is a very good thing the scenery was awesome the trail was nice it's a nice beginners walk

I was really hoping this trail would be awesome...but I won’t be back. It is a flat, paved path lined with train yards and an abandoned concrete building. Not nice to look at and I didn’t feel secure running by myself.

great for running/walking. I would not bike on it though because it is heavily trafficked, especially on holidays. great scenery. not a lot of shade though so be prepared on a sunny day

great trail to ride our bikes on and take the dogs for a walk

An easy walk and great walk down memory lane. ❤️

I wouldn't rate this as hard at all. Nice hike though. It was a little stinky just in close proximity to the landfill. Nice view though and can get close to the windmills.

I love this trail, easy walking or biking. So much to see, a lot of historical sights.

Have run on this with my boyfriend a couple times and it was very enjoyable

Out and back would have been more pleasant, the gravel road for 2 miles kinda bummed me out

great surface...great views..we ran only 5 miles on it but enjoyed the run!

A nice and relaxing trail. It's scenic and close to town.

Love this trail for biking. You pass a turkey farm, golf course, it’s mostly in the woods, along a creek. Near the northern end is a sweet cafe/bike repair shop, but during the fall it’s only open on weekends.

it was a nice Sunday in Nov, not too cold. We visit MT. Gretna for the 1st time and so glad we did. We will be back and more prepared for a hike! I didn't realize how much this area had to offer; hiking, mountain biking and Rock Climbing just to name a few.

Nice for trail running, mountain biking, and dog walks. Recommend good trail running shoes as it can be wet in some spots. However, big thanks to the guy who has been filling in wet spots with gravel on the trail part from the Trucksville FD. Awesome job!

mostly flat with some gentle climbs, well maintained.

There is a steep incline for about a mile straight in the begining of the trail. It was really pretty when you got to the top of the cliffs, seen a couple hawks fly away as I approached. The last two miles were on a stone road, and relatively busy. My dog loved it!

Great ride. Rusty rail restaurant at the one end. Beautiful area.

Family friendly trail, completed the 5 mile loop with a preK age child and an infant in a stroller.

Good place to walk, clean, safe. People are friendy.

It's pretty good. Nice, easy hike above the roadway which can get noisy, but the views are pretty nice. I wouldn't rate it the best but it's nice to just have an easy hike sometimes. We parked in the Knights of Columbus lot and there were a few homeless around, so watch leaving anything in your car.

What a great combination of terrain. Finished this loop with my brothers-in-law and (then) five year old son. T’was fun crossing THROUGH a small creek.

Excellent trail. Take the bus from Jim Thorpe to White Haven or make reservations on the scenic bike train to get to White Haven. Pack a lunch and plenty of water and enjoy your bike ride back to Jim Thorpe. It is a great 25 mile ride through scenic views and many mini waterfalls. My husband and I do this trip 1-3 times per year. It is well worth our 90 minute drive to Jim Thorpe from NJ.

this is a great biking trail, I've only been here once, with my girlfriend and two children, we only did a 8 mile ride, seen a eagle and took the kids on a train ride, we had a great time. we can't wait to get back to this park, next time just her and I so we can bike the entire 20 miles, if you like to bike and hike this is a great place there's a lot of hiking trails off the bike path and I believe there's a total of 4 waterfalls, and over 40 miles of hiking trails. this park is very rich in history as well.

I wouldn’t rate a hard. A lot of it is through fields. Only a couple places with a good view.

So this trail is not well marked. One should have AllTrails or gps. While not the prettiest trail I have traversed, there are pretty areas. Hiked after a hard rain so the smell of the land fill was minimal. Not hard to hike but for some the inclines may be a challenge. The meadows and one overlook were pretty. Many butterflies and wild flowers. Quiet except for the noise of a few trucks. The last few miles are flat along the river so made the last few miles feel long but seeing the recent rock slide and the caboose made it more enjoyable.
