Nice trail with a great variety of things to look at and picturesque spots.

Beautiful views and stunning rock formations. Keep alert though because this trail intersects with others and we got turned around more than once. take a map with you.

Quite enjoyable for a novice

Love!! Went here because it’s close to my sisters in the city but still on the way from Chalfont area. Hike was a workout and kicked my butt! (In the best way of course). I loved that it was easy enough but harder than most of my go-to trails. Will definitely be returning :) watch for the little spiders that build their web right across the trails!

Very pretty but quite muddy

A good workout, nice foliage- in summer, the trail is a bit overgrown.

Ticks. Lots of ticks. Be warned, be prepared. The reforestation area has a lot of open field and wildflowers.
Scenic trail with a couple areas crossing and following the small stream. Trails weren't very well marked. Didn't complete the loop, ended up turning back half way as the trail became too overgrown with lots of thorny bushes. Did not make it to any area that overlooks the Susquehanna.

Beautiful trail with lots of great vistas at the top. Completed the 30.5 in 44 hours, 2 nights, going north bound. The terrain changes up a lot, from flat, incline, decline, rocky, stream crossings and just about everything in between so it is a great trail to get a bit of everything. There are lots of camping sites on the first half from the southern terminous but on the second half we spotted a lot less and didn't see any in the last 6 miles but we were moving quickly because it was raining so we could have missed something. Also the second half is the most senic if you are going north bound. There was plenty a water along the way. We saw 8 people NoBo on the second day and a group of 3 guys and a dog head SoBo along the trail.
All in all this would be a great trail to take your time. I would have love to do this trail in 3 days instead of rushing through but we had a time limit.

Gas Well Path is a beautiful and difficult hike. The ascent is challenging and beautiful. There are several paths at this park that you can choose to continue your hike. Would highly recommend.

Hiked on a humid Sunday evening. The trail was empty with only a few people at the falls. The trail to the falls is easy, but getting to the pools below is definitely challenging. Not sure if there’s an easier way to get to the bottom. The water is very cold but refreshing and the scenery is fantastic.

Had done this trail years ago and was looking forward to returning yesterday. Unfortunately we had our dog with us and were told immediately that no pets were allowed. Disappointed.

for those of you that hike this and made it to the look out did you turn right at the pink ribbons before the campsite. we had trouble finding it.

Awesome trail through the old burn territory

great hike along the creek. quiet calm and so much to see

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. During our trip the trees provided a wonderful canopy from the rain and the hot summer sun for most of it. Great trail with some exciting challenges throughout.

Started at Pine Grove to Juniata River. My 1st solo back pack experience. It was quite challenging on the first day but add some heavy rain and the rocky terrain slowed the pace quite a bit on day 2.

The section from Long Pine Dam Crest is a gradual incline with some rocks but not very difficult. The ridge winds in and out of shaded regions and more open ones. The best time of year is probably late summer because almost the entire route from the bottom of the hill to where it crosses with the EUB trail is covered in blueberry bushes. Early July seemed about two weeks too early. Took the EUB trail back to the parking lot and 1) was glad I didn't hike up that way because of the steep incline and 2) the tall grass had grown up on that section which needed to be beaten back. There are small signs which say it is rated "most difficult" but I would not characterize this trail that way.

Great veiws! there are three great campsites on the north side of the mountain in the grassy area close to the east part of the trail. there is also a spot about a mile down the AT from the east. AT section is pretty smooth hiking with a couple uphills. the scenic section has nice veiws and just a little rocky on spots.

July 2018 - the two large bridges (Martic Forge and Safe Harbor) are not passable. You cannot ride this trail end to end.

We take our dog down there all the time since it’s in our neighborhood. My sister took her senior pictures there too. Easy walk, would not recommend biking. Fun to play in the falls

Camped at Blue Rocks campground which has two separate trails which connect to this trail loop. My kids were pissed at me for dragging them along but talk about their hike with great pride and for great reason. Some of the stretches of boulder climbing had my wife telling them to "Be careful" every few minutes. The view from Pulpit rock is great but I thought the Pinnacle was one of the great views one can see hiking in Pennsylvania. Next time I am leaving them home so I can camp overnight in the state gamelands with my wife but I am definitely bringing the bear repellent.

Did this trail on a weekday in September and only saw a handful of people on it. Steady decline that didn't require too much hard pedaling and numerous places to take a break along with taking some incredible photos. I parked in Jim Thorpe and had someone drop me off at the White Haven trailhead , which worked to perfection. Looking forward to coming back.

Best urban ride in southeastern Pennsylvania. Free parking on Sedgley street at Kelly drive. Sculptures scattered through the Fairmont park part of the trail give great spots for a water break and a photo. Heavy traffic on the trail up to the Falls bridge, after which It thins out until Manayunk. A strech of street riding until the canal path comes into play ,then a safe auto free ride until Phoenixville. Connecting trails along the entire SRT make this trail the main artery this side of Pa.
