On route 62, this trail is actually labeled the Tanbark Trail. It is marked by white diamonds and blue blazes. Roundtrip 6.4 miles OR cross state route 3005 and continue on the"real" Tanbark Trail.

If you start on route 62, it is straight up hill and gains 750 feet in the first 2 miles.There is an awesome lunch spot 2.4 miles in next to the creek. There are two separate camping spots with fire rings.

Nice gravel path with benches and refuse containers. Picnic pavilions including charcoal grills. Playgrounds, ball fields (BB and baseball) and public restrooms, nice little park. Tennis courts too along with canoe launch right along the river. Easy access from city of Warren.plenty of paved parking.

So we decided to try the second half of the trail - South Slater up to 337. The first portion was ok / the trail is not blazed, but there is a path, until 1 mile in. Then the trail becomes a sea of overgrown mountain laurel. It took hours to go 3/4 mile. At one point we planned to set up camp (we were equipped only for a day hike) and spend the night. We did eventually set a heading for a Tanbark Trail waypoint (hiked previously) and were able to bushwhack tediously to that point. This is NOT a hike-able trail. For those who feel we may have gotten off track, I was following 2 different GPS apps, and at one point we left Slater Run and headed up to the top of the ridge to see if the understory was less dense and if anything that resembled a trail existed.

as many other reviewer point out only the first 1/2mile is obvious; beyond that the valley can be climbed.... but beware as in the heights above there are Mountain Laurel patches.

As a trail it isn't clear where it leads, but it's fun to explore around the rocks and the water. A family with preschool children was having a lovely jaunt and picnic around the bottom of the falls when we checked it out. Brochure says .4 mi of trails, which is about how high I climbed, so I don't know where the 2.9 miles come from.

Hiked down toward route 62, from the South Slater branch. The trail is not blazed, and some areas are very swampy. Quite a lot of bushwhacking and guesswork - never really sure if you're on the trail. Not sure how this got a kid friendly tag. Very apparently marked toward the end as private property. Not comfortable invading people's privacy - needs at least an occasional blaze. Was quiet and nice for mushrooms and unique plants if you are into that kind of thing.

Not very marked trail. Not enough information included for hike. Beautiful falls. Not a very informative hiking post

Very nice! I went in the winter, the snow and ice made it extremely beautiful.

We love this trail!! We have a big family from 4 years old through 16 and we all love this trail. You can climb as high as you want and when you get tired you can just dip in the water or head back down. The kids love it. A big plus is the coolness of the air and water during hot summer. And the scenery is beautiful!! Definitely recommend!!
