Nice hike, clearly marked trail. Went with some snow on the trail and was able to get around without issue.

Not difficult but long. Beautiful views from Warren’s Window and the Vista, and towards the end beautiful giant rocks which made that part of the forest magical. Will do this again but the other way around so as to spend more time exploring the rocks while still full of energy.

Nice trail, a little more elevation than it seemed. Love the park, and this is a good way to see a great part of it.

I would rate this one as hard if you start from County Line Road. First, you cross Roaring Run, thoroughly soaking your feet. Then you climb about 900' in one mile. Worth it though, as the trail runs along the ridgetop, making for some great views.

Great trail hiked 46 miles of it in September and finished the last 13 a few weeks ago. If you plan to hike the entire trail the maps and guide from the alpine club of williamsport is very helpful. A few spots need some more markers or the markers moved to a more visible position. Lots of water available just be careful if you go after a rain storm as water collects along the trail in a lot of spots and crosses a few streams.

Hike with my wife early Sunday AM. 6 to 9” of snow made Going tough. Trail is Awsome !!!

Nice falls. Quite heavily frequented even during wintery weather conditions. There is no loop next to the falls (except maybe if you feel like climbing on the rocks). It definitely is an in and out trail.

Took Ridley Creek white trail from loop #17 to yellow trail. A connector trail off of yellow trail to various trails in Tyler. Nice and quiet....not one other hiker for 2 hours...maybe because it was 22 degrees.

Utility road for the first 3 or so miles, easy enough. Then changes to rocky terrain one person wide. Very well marked since it is the AT trail. Very few people, great views.

Nice quiet trail, but I had difficulty reconciling the maps and trail markers.

This is such a magical trail! We started our hike by heading South from the family camping ground, and it made for a pretty easy hike. Nice vistas of the Loyalsock, and we played in the “rock garden” for a bit after eating lunch at the Loyalsock Canyon Vista parking area - just follow the trail beside the bathroom.

On the back half of our loop, we hit downhill switchbacks, giant rock areas that look like they’re right off the set of the TV show Outlander, and ended with an easy walk along the river. (Going the other way would be BRUTAL.) Was a fantastic end to such a great hike. I highly recommend this hike and will definitely be back for more!

The falls are beautiful and a must see if near the area, trail is easy enough to follow and this hike can be done in under 30 mins. Not so good, lots of college aged kids screaming, blocking the trail and drinking beer. Pretty sure this is a common occurrence as the falls smelled heavily like beer, its unfortunate people cant respect the environment.

Boulder field is a really interesting geological anonymity that I highly recommend you check out if you havent yet. Couple of reason for the lower rating though, 1. there is a gravel road that leads right up to boulder field, so its pretty guaranteed that the field will be packed on any given nice weather day, and that results in there being higher than usual trash and even some graffiti on the rocks. 2. Its really close to a highway so theres high traffic noise for most of the hike. Again I highly recommend you check it out but after doing it twice myself I doubt ill be returning.

It’s an easy trail as marked on this site’s map. It had yellow marks, but they are difficult to find 1/2 way on the loop part. There are many unmarked side trails that intersect. Now that I have done it, I would do it again. It was muddy at parts but that is typical this year with all the rain we have got. Parking is minimal, so if you hike with someone else, you can double park with them.

Great morning to get out!

Nice trail for fall weather bring the boot its muddy

Highly recommend the following route.

Blueberry to Waterfall Loop
Blueberry has the best views in the preserve
Waterfall has a great canopy of hardwoods

Waterfall to High Voltage
High Voltage has great flora diversity despite being a powerline right of way

High Voltage to Stonehenge
Stonehenge is a mix of shrubby mountain laurel, scotch pine, and birch before opening into additional mountain views

Stonehenge to Conglomerate
Conglomerate has nice views and additional blueberry patches

Conglomerate to Access Roads/Parking Lot
In the summer would be great to swim in the lake on your way out. Very clear limestone basin

Love this trail. Spots are muddy, some hills and part of the path you walk over lots of rocks. Lots of things to see, definitely not a boring trail. Love the view from Wolf Rocks. Spots can be a little overgrown with thorn bushes and some spots you have to walk through mud so wear good boots.

Family friendly short and shaded trail. The first hiking experience for my 4 year old child. He was excited and was able to complete the whole trail without getting a piggyback.

great view. we hiked up the stream and then some trails. little hills and a good workout.

Great trail. For those who said that it’s muddy, we got nearly 50” of rain this year. If you don’t like mud, stay inside.

The only iffy part was the quarter-mile or so on the windy road. Luckily the vehicles I saw were DCNR who were working on the trail.

Markings are clear, scenery beautiful. Very nice.

Gravel trail, well marked, very minor elevation changed. It took 2.5 hrs with a short bathroom and lunch break.

This was a great trail! Trail markers were crystal clear. My only disappointment was I didn't see any waterfalls (pictured in the trail description). But I'll definitely be back.

Started nice for the first hour but the last two were boring as hell and made it feel like it lasted days.

Heavily used small trail. Popular with families. More of an out and back then a loop. Scenic, though crowed waterfall. Small climb by bottom of waterfall.

Very cool topography at the boulder field.
