This trail, along with many others, is currently closed due to significant storm damage. Unfortunately Childs Park had over 100 trees come down, damaging the many boardwalks and paths. Restoration could take up to 2 years. :-(

Did the blue trail. Very well marked and easy to follow. Easy hike as well. Will be doing the black trail next trip for a little more distance and hopefully more elevation gain. Didn’t take as long as predicted.

This is a trail that stretches on for a couple miles. It’s mainly for biking, but walkers/runners use it, too. The difficulty is easy, but depending on how FAR you’re biking or walking, it can be more difficult.

Awesome views,clear path,not a long hike but you will break a sweat.

Great hike on a beautiful day! We parked up at the tower, on Tower Rd and immediately came to the most beautiful vista. Parking there made the hike mostly level then a steep decent at the end, at the lake. Be prepared for a steep incline if you park at the lake and walk up to the tower. Also worth going 2/10ths mike to the bunker. Very nice camp for hikers.

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

Great trail with amazing views. Agree with other reviews about it being a moderate trail. Stick to the trail and you'll be fine.

Once you figure out where it starts the trail is very well marked. It’s a nice mix of up and down and flat throughout the hike. The park lists the distance as 12 miles.

Nice steady up and down

Tried this trail for the first time today and I loooved it! I definitely think the rating of moderate is appropriate. I would recommend starting on the left side as you really do get the more lackluster part of the trail out of the way. You’ll know when you find that magical part for sure! Definitely some tricky rocks and water crossings. I brought my dog but he became nervous about some of the climbs/crossings and I had to assist him. Overall I really enjoyed this hike and can’t wait to return!

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Not a hike for beginners but I definitely wouldn’t rate it hard. More like moderate. All the falls are absolutely breath taking. If you’re using your phone for pictures I recommend bringing a portable charger because you will need it with the amount of pictures you’ll take! You could easily get away with wearing sneakers. Just some parts are a little slippery and there’s still patches of snow and ice. But overall 10/10 will 100% be going again soon!

We enjoyed this trail with 2 & 4 year old boys. The only downside is you have to walk along the road (bridge) on the very last part of the trail. But that’s only a very small part of the trail. Overall it was good and kid friendly.

Excellent trail. Varied terrain. Ill be back!

It was a nice short hike for me but I did get confused when I came off the trail onto a road with cabins.... turns out I needed to follow the road just a short ways down to get back on the trail.

Had a nice time there in the snow. Easy, enjoyable little hike w/ some cool stone features, and close ups of the waterfalls.

Tons of fun things to explore. I will definitely go back.

Parked in the parking lot and climbed. I say climbed as opposed to walked because it was quite steep and very rocky. It didn't help that there was still a little snow remaining. Once I reached the top the walk was very pleasant, relatively level, and easily marked. However, fresh logging activity near the end of the loop made it impossible to determine where the trail actually was. I ended up turning around and retracing my steps. The climb down was no picnic either, but overall this was a nice hike.

Absolute breathtaking hike! Quite a challenge with most of this hike being rocky slopes. I like to do this backwards where you hike to the falls vs. seeing the falls first. Wear shoes with good grip and slip resistant. Get there early as it gets crowded, and dont forget your cameras!!!!

You can go up a steeper spot where it’s a climbing route. Really nice place to see a great view.

We nailed it and went during the worst weather ever! but this trail is sheltered somewhat and the rain/fog didn't effect us much! Made the colors pop in our pictures too :) Eat at the Rickett's Glenn Hotel...YUMMO! Get the potato thing - it was delicious!

Lenape green trail good

Great hiking trail, very well maintained and beautiful views, always something new to discover. My wife and I hike from Hells Hollow parking lot to McConnell's mills and back. I don't recommend hiking it in the winter, can be very dangerous. Early spring is usually muddy and U have a couple of small run off creeks to cross over.

very difficult but absolutely worth it. We took the long way and hiked about 6 miles. lots of rock scrambling! would recommend to experienced hikers.

walking up river via Boulder rock... stop and admire the hippy art work, place is full of good vibes

Didn’t love this one. Went in March and not much to look at with planes flying overhead fairly often so you don’t get to much of a nature feel. Good practice for the AT though with the steep climbs.

Easy trail. Nice walk with some water features.

Most of this trail is part of the horseshoe trail also. This part is clearly marked. It is nice to see a trail with no litter, unlike other nearby trails.

Great outlooks! Not too long or difficult, but some nice hills too!
