I don't suggest taking the loop route that this trail is currently marked as. The hike up to the ridge line was fine but poorly marked. Trail became nonexistent a little past that.

Fun hike! A few notes: the hike out to the falls follows the Loyalstock Trail and then a blue dot trail to view the falls, both are well marked. To come back on the loop as the map here shows we followed the old Loyalstock trail which is not frequently travelled and possibly no longer maintained (large trees down on the trail). We had to search hard to find the faint yellow and red markings still barely remaining on the trees. It made for an adventure but may have been easier to do as an out and back.

My husband and I did this hike yesterday. We followed the orange markers down to the waterfall (which was so beautiful & peaceful) and the red markers back which was a REALLY bad idea.

The red marker trail wasn't kept up so we had no idea which way to go. We were confronted by alot of wild life walking along the fence in the high grass. It was rather scary. Thankful for this App with the compass or we probably would have gone in circles.

We have children & I can't say that I would ever bring them on that trail. It was a nice hike for us adults though. Just stay on the orange path both ways & you will enjoy it.

Absolutely incredible experience. First overnight backpacking trip with my love and her bro. The rocks were difficult but the views were spectacular. Did around 23 miles in two days...can't wait to go back. Go Rock Cheetah!!

trail was definitely more like 4.5 miles, very steep at times and i would consider it more difficult. we did it in about 3 hours and would definitely do it again!

someone asked if it can be done with kids... my boys are 7 & 10 and did great I also saw other small kids. proper footwear a must, no other gear needed. we took orange up and had amazing view the whole way, took blue/red down. it can certainly be dangerous if you are not being cautious but amazing hike!

I prefer to start near tumbling run but this was a good route to get to the climbing rocks

Difficult hike but well worth it. Starting out on swift run across the stream (got a wet foot crossing due to higher water) up to tower trail, down thick mountain. Thick mountain is very steep on the way down. love the mossy rocks at the end - beautiful. No great vistas as the trees are too high but beautiful trail all around. have down this quite a few times. The smell is wonderful!
