Nice short loop to get out in nature with a waterfall. Great for introducing dogs (or kids) to hiking and getting in the water.

Couldn't find the trailhead??

Beautiful hike amongst a tin of waterfalls got a tiny bit strenuous at some points

Great trail. Combined it with a uphill hike to the Pinnacle with great views of the Susquehanna River. This makes it a circa 7 mile trail. Makes for a fantastic day out. Maps with the route are available in the Holtwood Park's parking lot.

An enjoyable trail, though I didn't find it particularly notable. I imagine there would be some nice views in winter.

An interesting little place. Not the best location for hiking, but still fun. A probably a good place to hike with kids.

I love this trail as my local go-to hike when I need a getaway and workout. I would probably rate it more difficult than the moderate definition given.

This is a wonderful, tranquil, and quiet trail with usually little traffic. I great place for bird watching. It is not a long trail.

Completed Bruce lake in August 17' The hike was pretty lax and beautiful on the way to the lake. You pass through a cool rhododendron forest half way there. Once starting the loop around the lake you'll notice the trail only comes close the the lake with views at the apex, otherwise it's 100 to 200 yards from the banks. The reason for the three stars is for the condition of the trail. Over grown with blue berry bushes on the east side that come up waist high... annoying but doable. The west side was so bad you felt like you weren't even on a trail for approx 1 whole mile. Overgrown brush up to your chest/neck. You just have to push through it.

I'm going up next year and taking a machete to hack back the overgrowth. I highly recommend anybody taking this trail wear pants and take a machete. If everyone helps out a little it could be a great 4-5 star path. I found out it's managed by the state forestry department and they just don't have the time or volunteers to keep it in top shape.

Trail is confusing around second creek crossing and not well marked.
