Good trail need GPS to keep from going off trail

Really nice trail for Spring with Jasmine and other flowers. The forest changes perfume throughout the walk. The beginning of the trail is by water and you can spot tortoise on the trail.

Woodsy and nicely shaded. Not many views. Power lines marred some of the best views.

Skip this one. Poorly marked and nothing great about it. Lots of water filled “pot holes”. A lot of private property that the trail goes through. No drinkable water for your dog the whole 5 miles. Luckily I carry water for the both of us jic.

This was an awesome hike, did it with my husband for my birthday. There were 2 pretty steep hills that really get your blood pumping but overall a very pretty and interesting hike. I especially liked the foot bridges and scenery at the beginning of the trail.

Just magical. I really like this because there are many different trails depending on your level of difficulty. You can stick to the wide gravel trail that is uphill quite a bit, or go low on the watershed trail and cross water on footbridges and explore rocks. We spend lots of time here and all different kinds of weather because it is so beautiful and magical! I hike it with a seven and three year old with ease.

Lots of ascension.

It's more of a walking path than a trail, but still nice. During the week is best, the weekends are too crowded. Lots of birds and flowers to see.

Nice relaxing walk along the Tulpehoken Creek. Lots of birds, flowers and turtles along the path.

Great trail for the first hike of the season. Three sections are on the steep side but enough flat areas in between to recover. Beautiful view of Reading and the Pagoda from Witches Hat. Most of the trail is rock covered. Dogs enjoyed it too.
