Nice easy hike. Both of my daughters (6 and 4 yrs old) enjoyed.

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

This hike was extremely enjoyable. Ridge line hiking is the best.

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!

Great trail. Love the variety that this trail offers. Lots of uphill and downhill... I hike this trail on a regular basis with my pup.. And only issue is parking. I love this trail!

Lenape green trail good

Very entertaining trail. The sights and views are amazing and exciting. Not too many steep inclines but definitely a bit of leg work necessary! Took us about 2 hours to complete.

I like that the trail branches in so many directions so you switch up your route often. The trails are paved so it's good for when other trails get muddy or if you have a stroller. I would of gave it more stars but it can get kind of crowded in the summer.

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

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

Fun had a thrilling trail run . Great experience

Great hike with my seven year old. Will be hiking Tuscarora Trail soon!

A really nice area. My first time there today. Many trails off the main 2 1/2 mile loop. Looking forward to going back and hiking up the Monocacy Hill trail. The view at the top is supposed to be awesome!

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!

Great first hike for my 6 year old daughter; not hard and enjoyable. We had fun

Great little trail.. With many surrounding trails to create an opportunity for a longer hike.. We decided to make a "loop" out of this trail, ledges trail, Copperous Rock trail, and Rhododendron trails. Use caution in parts of Abbot Run trail especially in "winter months" Trails aren't wide and if they are slippery, it would be a long fall onto rocks.

When there yesterday 3/10/18. I was a great trail. NOT marked well at all. Could not find the second half of the loop. We managed to find it then. Horses are NOT ALLOWED on this trail. We will do it again now that we know where we are going.

well maintained trail through some beautiful Pa hills

Beautiful scenery and great paths to run on. Can’t wait to see it in the spring/summer.

This was a beautiful area to hike and explore. We loved the moss covering lots of trees and rocks. The snow on logs and sections of ground was also very picturesque. This is a filmmaker's/photographer's dream zone.

However, there isn't much of a trail to follow. We went in the second week of March. There was a heavy snowstorm a week prior, but the snow was only patchy during our hike. According to Alltrails, the trail goes across the river before starting the loop, but there wasn't anywhere to cross the river safely, so we stayed on the side where the trail started. We tried crossing the river on logs which spanned the river, but they were either too thin or not long enough.

TAKE CAUTION if you're trying to complete this whole trail. The river might be even deeper and wider in the spring and summer.

This hike has a little bit of everything! There is a stream, a view, and some history. If you grab a map you can easily navigate your way through every section of this area in a day. This is a very well maintained, relaxing hike. There are picnic tables and bathrooms at the trailhead which is always nice.

Such a nice little hike, many other trails in the area to make a longer more challenging hike.. Balanced Rock viewing area was well worth seeing

Brought a friend who has never been backpacking for a quick weekend trip and this route worked well. We parked at the north lot and arrived relatively late in the evening but there was a good place to set up camp right at the beginning so it worked out. Water was low but there was still plenty of water available. Relatively easy hiking. Great for new backpackers and a weekend trip.

A little too rocky for me, pretty easy short hike with an okay view of some trees

Well maintained and marked. Numerous outlooks.

Great loop. Spend good amount of time near creek, which is always my favorite. Old logging road going up from campground will get your heart rate up. Good views, not heavily trafficked although it was March.

awesome trail, great view, lots of rocks, perfect for PA prep for the AT.
