this trail has been reopened. its a great hike!

I would consider this moderate to diffiicult. The way up the mountain was steep and rocky. Got a great workout.

Love it ! Very nice views !!

One of my favorite hikes! So beautiful, the entire time I just couldn’t stop gawking over all the waterfalls. Definitely recommend! Not too hard if you are in decent shape and can climb stairs. Also gotta reiterate to wear shoes with good traction and waterproof if possible! To get the best views and shots you have to hike down/climb back up in mud/on slippery rocks. Highly recommend!

Great hike, well marked from the trail head located at the inlet to Locast Lake.

There are also two Geocache among the trails. The Geocache on the Oak Loop is missing at this time.

Magnificent walk along the brook.

Thank you Eagle Scouts and Boy Scouts for marking these trails.

I would not rate this as a moderate level trail. It literally is a straight walk along a boardwalk. Be sure to wear and bring along extra bug spray! It was like walking through a fog of mosquitos. There were basic nature sights, nothing too exciting, and a few benches along the way. I'd recommend to the elderly and to those with very young children. Or in my case, I'd walk this trail again for something to do if I just had time to kill.

All the trails in this area are clearly marked and well maintained!

Nice area to hike around! The middle and south loops are fantastic, but the north loop has areas that are extremely overgrown with numerous downed trees and erosion. Great campsites on the north loop.

Nice views!

Beautiful trail with lots of cool spots for photos. Very challenging too especially after a rain the night before. Tou have to watch your every step. The waterfalls was indeed a treat.

Giving it one star because one is not able to ride trail. READ, trails is full of big branches. would not recommend it to anyone until it is cleared. every minute or so I was clearing branches from the trail.

This is what everyone thinks about when you mention North Park.
It is an easy though long-ish walk depending on the speed of your party. The majority of the path is beside a road and fairly removed from the lake or woods. It is also very popular so expect lots of families, joggers, dogs, etc. There are some lovely views, especially of the Boathouse, and it's fun to see all the different people enjoying the park too.
It is nice when you want an easy walk to maybe chat with friends but there are better trails if you want a real work out or be more immersed in nature.

I really enjoyed this trail for the most part; it is mostly shaded and though close to roads you'd never know it. My dog loved all the new smells too!
I also struggled when I came upon Kummer road though, I mistakenly followed the parks Orange Trail and ended up way past the horse arena and needed to turn around.
Tip for future hikers, DONT cross Kummer Road! (at least for this loop).

Great local trail. lots of things to see, some challenging spots but miderate overall. The landscape of the forest is forever changed due to the winter storms...literally thousands of trees down. Great job NPS Trail Crew on clearing the trees from the trails!

Smooth paved trail

Beautiful walk for all levels. Paved road all around.

First time here. Its was a little wet due to the recent rainfalls. Awesome waterfalls

Such an interesting trail, with bridges, steps, and different paths. It is in a pretty neighborhood, too! Muddy, so bring sneakers, but didn’t get any cuts and bruises as the other traveler, so can’t speak to that. Was in August.

been here many times! great trail, and beautiful scenery!

Excellent hike! For a hard hike, I suggest doing the whole loop, to include River of Rocks Trail, Golden Eagle Trail, and the Skyline Trail. Epic hike with a lot of scrambling (Skyline Trail). Definitely slippery when wet so be prepared to slip and slide if it’s raining like it was today.

Dima had a great time on this woodlands trail! We will definitely be back when we have more time to explore!

Great place to go birding. Definitely will come back, very peaceful!

I loved this trail!! So fun and exciting, lots of little obstacles to climb over, my dog loved it! I would however consider this a moderately difficult trail, can be slippery in some spots, especially near the waterfall parts

Great for a quick bike ride. Takes less than 1 hour to complete the 6.0 mile loop. the terrain is mostly flat with some gradule slopes and one slightly larger hill near the nature center. There are lots of people with dogs, people fishing, kayaking, running, biking, etc. This one takes the 5 stars not because of the difficulty, but because of the scenery and because is is very well maintained.

It’s a very pleasant trail. There is definitely no river as the description states, but the Ohio is nearby and easy to get to...by car.

We went after some heavy rains & it was breathtakingly beautiful!

This trail is rated as moderate but for me it was difficult. I’m not an avid hiker, not in exceptional shape, and when I went it was a heat advisory day so that all factors into my “difficult” rating. I completed this hike solo and enjoyed being alone with my thoughts in the surrounding. I went early on a Monday morning and the trail was not crowded at all. It was very serene, therapeutic, and relaxing with all the waterfalls. I hiked the trail so I saved the largest waterfall for the end of the hike. I spent time at each waterfall and rested a few times and the hike took me approx. 3 1/2 hours. It was a great solo hike to be alone with your own thoughts.

Nice hike made up of various trails. Would be more enjoyable when the weather is dryer. Some sections open to horses and bikes.
