Muddy in some spots.

Nice trail well marked

One of the best ones

Very nice trail. A little overgrown in some areas. Initial 1.5 is steep but then it levels out. Saw deer, toads, and frogs on the trail. View at the summit was amazing. Had lunch for about an hour before descending. I will definitely do it again. I would rate it as moderate and not difficult.

Easy, not stressful at all. We walked it while carrying lots of fishing equipment. There are many smaller trails that lead off of the main trail to get to the water to fish

Great view and a challenging hike, trail needs a bit more maintenance, but I guess that's what makes it difficult.

Beautiful trail, easy to follow, lovely waterfalls

I grew up playing in these woods and on these trails and all my kids have enjoyed them as well. Easy hike, nothing harder than a few steep hills. Especially like the area we refer to as "the deep part". It's a stretch that's in between a few ridges and it is quieter and more heavily forested down through there. The entrance to "the deep part" is @ the top of the 12th St stairs and then take the trail past where the old pump was. Use and protect it, a very nice place.

Good family trail, great photography opportunities. Watch your step a bit & almost anyone of any age or skill level can easily handle the terrain.

Not often have I done such a short and simple hike with such spectacular sights. I bid you go. See the wonders in waterfall form.

I must have been there the time as reviewer Emily Goss below. Lots of water, excellent hike. DCNR has a gem here.

Trail after you get to Bruce lake is completely overgrown with blueberry bushes. We walked through in fishing waders. If we didn’t have them on we would have been scraped and scratched. The bushes are over my head, I am 5’2”. Very dense. Very uncomfortable. There is no views or lake access after the first open area you arrive at. It is more or less a very long walk in bushes and some swampy areas.

Not very scenic, but pleasant.

loved this trail! real easy to do walked it with 2 dogs no problem it has some great views. went after a good rain so the falls has some good flow so the trails were wet but that's to be expected

Great trail, lots of pretty views

Great bike ride

Fantastic view. A bit steep at parts but I wouldn’t consider it hard. Not your typical walk in the park though.

Really nice trail! Well maintained and beautiful scenery. Did the 10.6 miles and the terrain was good, no bumps or debris, very clean. There are nice benches and sitting areas throughout the entire trail. Enjoy! :)

Good, long, flat trail. love that it is along a working rail. scenery near Westmoreland community was pretty.

Great workout for a moderately fit person. It was very muddy in parts so wear good grip sturdy hiking boots.

I was legitimately lost, alone, for 1.5 hours with a dead cell phone. The trailblazers are less than adequate if you can even find the trail - which is overgrown to say the least. I crossed many logs on many streams, found my car by following the sun and directing myself. Soaked, covered in ticks, dehydrated and panicked. I had my gps running on my phone to follow the trail - useless. Don’t trust it - it lies.

Nicely maintained and marked trails, but absolutely no shade for majority of trail. Lots of birds around the ponds. My dog and toddler enjoyed this one. Only wish there had been a few spots of shade. There are some nice benches scattered around, but all are in full sun.

Very nice. Well worth it

close to town and easy to find. by going up the main trail and circling around on the yellow then sleepy hollow trail you can get about 1.5 miles out of it. can tell that it was maintained but there are a number of big trees down over the trail from the winter storms.

This was a beautiful hike. Beware, the trail is not prepped for the season. Meaning, there are a lot of lot hanging branches and logs to jump over. Since it had just rained, there were several places that were too soft for trail shoes. Hiking boots are recommended. All told, it's long, moderate and gorgeous.

Good, small trail for beginners. The only bad part is that the trail is very overgrown from lack of maintenance.

Perfect after a few days of rain! The falls were rushing and it was a nice challenge.

A fairly steep trail on the shorter side. Beautiful payoff at the summit!

Easy walk with nice access to the creek...would be 5 stars if not for the sneaky snek in the water
