I didn’t expect to love this so much however I found the blazes a little confusing. I got lost but this all probably could have been avoided if I had stopped in and grabbed a map. Very beautiful hike.

Excellent trails as this region goes. Clearly marked and well maintained. Each trail is its own independent loop offering easy access back to the parking area and the different trails offer varying levels of challenge. The peak offers some nice views and the Creek Trail crosses a peaceful, babbling brook. Old stone walls cross the hill and the remnants of what was to be a train station are there to explore. Happy hiking.

not a difficult trail. could use some more maps throughout the park. had to rely on the app multiple times to direct me through the tail options. not many lookouts, but a plethora of trails. will definitely be back to see the rest of what the park has to offer.

Highs and lows, mounting biking portion, unsuspected part where the trail leads to the little cliff and had to hope off the bike and push it and carry it a bit before the trail regained its width.

We went there on Sunday January 13th, the road was horrible and full of potholes, the directions were not correct, we couldn’t find the trailhead or the falls, we did trek through the woods and timber to the creek, which was beautiful with the ice, the next person to go there, please mark the trailhead with a sign or something , so others can find and enjoy!

Beautiful as ever but a bit icy. Would recommend crampons.

Not safe for dogs yet. Falls are gushing and icy. Make sure to wear hiking boots, the trail is very rocky and can be slippery at times. Requires some maneuvering.

Nice bike trail with a good restaurant, Rusty Rail, before you go back.. Beautiful scenery, very easy trail for biking..

conditions were perfect. the cold created spectacular views. Best time of year to enjoy this trail without the crowds. don't forget to explore the old train tunnel post hike

there were some parts of the trail that got the cardio going. It branches off a lot but from what I can tell the app keeps you on track and it's well marked. you can venture off the branches to extend your hike to northern pets of the park. I saw Mountain bikes when I was on it.

Very nice trail, well marked. joins up with be at Allegheny passage, take that and wander around the fern trails. Not very strenuous and Cucumber Falls is amazing

popular trail, flat, easy, clean and safe. Roads close buy 25mph speed limit.

This starts out from the Environmental Education Center parking lot - we got a paper park map at the education building there to see all trails. This one follows a pretty stream for a little bit then crosses a bridge over to the other side. The trail has some uphill areas, but not super strenuous, then passes through a large area of maple trees where they were tapping for syrup. This trail would be very beautiful during the spring when apparently there are a lot of wildflowers in bloom along the trail. There are many loop options to make shorter hikes - good for children or elderly.

Great hike, A dusting of snow at the base and 1-2" on the shady side of the top. Upper 20s and mostly sunny. We did the loop counter clockwise without taking the spur to the lean to. 3.9 miles according to the GPS. We only saw one other pair with their dog. Numerous animal tracks in the snow. We might not have needed them but we used micro spikes on the way down and it made more secure footing.

Stopped on a winter day. Trail short but very icy. The waterfall tumbles over and under the huge rocks. Probably hard to see in mid summer.

Went on a winter day. Had the falls to myself. Easy trail with rock garden towards the top. A nice place to photograph.

Clean easy walk.

This trail is beautiful in the winter! The nice, flat trail makes for an easy walk in the snow with various ponds and streams along to enjoy. We crossed the road at the end of the trail when you reach the other game lands parking lot because we wanted to see Springfield Falls. We weren't sure if we were allowed to keep going because it looks like somewhat of a continuation of the trail but goes right behind people's houses, but we saw someone out sled riding with his kids and he greeted us and asked if we'd hiked this trail before, so it must be fine. Unfortunately, the trail leads to a gated small bridge over a creek that you aren't able to cross (the man I mentioned previously told us it's apparently unsafe) and the creek was fairly deep, so we couldn't continue to the falls. There may be a way to keep going along it or a shallower spot to cross, but we were just ready to turn around. In the warmer months that wouldn't be a problem regardless. A very enjoyable and scenic trail.

This is a two part review.
The first part of the trail was from Flat Rock to Waggoners Gap. The trail was rugged and extremely rocky with numerous hills to ascend. Hiked this section on May 4,2018. A gallon of water was not nearly enough to carry, even with the fullest effort to conserve. Hiked all day and only made it about 14 miles before running out of light. With that being noted, we abandoned all hope to proceed and ended the journey at Waggoners Gap.
Just returned from the second leg of the journey (January 12,2019), which began where we left off at Waggoners Gap. This section of the trail was rocky, however, not nearly as the first trek. This section of the trail was MUCH easier, with numerous ascents and descents, though the trail seemed well “manicured “. During this trip, we hiked a continuous 15 miles, following the Tuscarora Trail into the AT at Miller’s Gap. As stated previously, this section of the Tuscarora Trail was ridiculously easier than the first section, and I feel somewhat upset about it. In all, we began this leg at 0545 and ended at 1600, well before running out of light.
In conclusion, the first leg from Flat Rock to Waggoner’s Gap is sheer, unforgiving Hell, while the second leg from Waggoner’s Gap to Miller’s Gap is more like walking a well maintained powderpuff trail.

I liked this trail. Use the app, couple tricky parts. Hunting is allowed in the park and it recommended to have some orange on you. This is not a flat trail so there will be some burn. The Bridge is out at the end by the cave but easily crossable during low water times.

great hike.. will definitely do again.

Great trails for hiking and running. Scenic, a number of benches and picnic tables throughout for a lunch break. Spend 2-3 hours for a 4-5 mile hike. Plenty of parking. Some steep terrain. I don’t recommend tennis shoes off the paved road.

I love Hawk Mountain. nice views, variety of difficulty, good photographing opportunities.

not really a hike, more like a walk. paved ways, lots of traffic noise. better than nothing?

Easy hike out to a few great views! Took kids, they liked it too.

Nice day hike if you are local. Nota challenging hike, but enough to get the blood flowing.
