This place is GORGEOUS! If I have only know it was here for years. Took the orange trail and the beginning looked like a rainforest with the Rodale Run. Nice and easy hike but so much to look at...a Wonder in the middle of emmaus.

It was a nice, quiet hike. More hilly than I expected. A few of the climbs were steep enough to have me bent over to maintain balance, which was fun. Started on the yellow and got lost early on, ending on the white trail.

Bring bug spray! Yellow, white, and blue trails are all narrow dirt paths.

it's far shorter of a hike than I would have liked, but the view is gorgeous! if you bring a dog definitely keep them on the leash, the cliffs creep up on you and no matter how well your pup is trained it could be dangerous.

easy trail with gorgeous views, plenty of water for dogs and a cool man made waterfall

As I approached the SP a road was closed so I dropped into the office to double check with parking, alternate road and this trail... also picked up a map. Three people in the office had no clue of this loop trail... just something that was made up and entered here because there's tons of trails in the area.
Luckily I spoke with a trail runner in the parking lot that gave me a few tips and alternate suggestions in case I wanted to change this up.

My loop started with Overlook Trail to the pipeline and headed east on Old Tram Trail. Old Tram Trail is grown in and not traveled much with a high volume of ticks. I then headed south on the Mid State Trail which then ran into Bake Oven and back to the parking lot. Total was 7.5 miles.

The trails are blazed pretty good but there's so many of them clustered together with junctions that you must be able to read a map/compass very well and have you compass readily available. Some trails you run into are not on the maps.
Overall, there's a lot of great views there. If you're unfamiliar with the area, you may want to create a smaller loop or try the out and back trails first.
