Always a great area to explore. Trails/paths are well cared for and easy to follow.

Nice easy trail. Great views of the lake all along the trail. Beautiful State Park to spend a day in.

Just completed the loop. Randomly just decided to go for a hike and picked here to kick off the fall/winter hikes. Some snow on the ground made the trails a little more difficult to maneuver. The abstract rocky trail base and snow combination is an ankle twister, and the combination really slowed down the pace. Almost had to watch every step for the majority of the trails. Would have loved to been here early to mid October. But today was as clear as a day that you can get in PA and the views from the high point were amazing. Could see well into Maryland and West Virginia. Well worth taking the back country roads to get here also. Will be back in the spring.

Definitely worth the view! Although the hike up isn’t the most interesting, the view and walk up the fire tower pays off. Plus, I saw my first bears in the wild! I wouldn’t recommend climbing up the tower on a windy day if you’re afraid of heights. It swayed enough on a calm day! I parked at the gate and got back to the car almost an hour after sunset, but I could see my way all the way back!

Really nice trail, but definitely don't use a bike for it. A good portion of it is far to rocky for one.

Easy trail, pretty view! No one out there on late evening in November.

Took Cruise and Royal, nice long gallop, nice ride gravel road, would be good in winter .

Very pleasant trail. Easy walking except for the muddy parts.

This was a beautiful hike. Mostly uphill during the first half. Some very steep. The 2nd half is downhill and winds along a babbling broke that’s very peaceful. You could choose to walk down a gravel road but I found the trail meandering along the brook to be more fun. The dog loved it too. I found it to be 4 miles.

Relatively easy (but rocky) out and back trail. Long slow climb but not strenuous. Decent views from the ridge with all the leaves having fallen, but no big scenic outlooks. They weren't kidding about the 'beer tap' at the top ( a few taps jammed into a log). Took a little less than 3 hours and worth the effort.

this trail is a great one for little kids and anyone that wants a very quick walk to see a beautiful setting! I took my 2 year old son here and he did great, not difficult at all with gorgeous scenery, so peaceful

Decent trail. Was kind of hoping for a view of Lake Arthur, but that was not the case. A pretty standard hike, a little boring in fall to be honest, but good nonetheless.

I loved this trail. Slow incline on a gravel road and then turn at the top and come back along the creek. Nice footbridges over the creek. The dog loved it too.

Hiked from 309 to Bake Oven Shelter, and back. Overnighted at New Tripoli. Loved it all! Technical hiking in the rocks (app. 1 mile of very rocky trail, with .25 scramble section). It's a satisfying challenge, but with some genuine safety risk (especially with a backpack). Nice to have gloves. Decent bird-watching throughout. Grafitti on the knob is distressing, but is limited to just that area. Bear Rocks are beautiful with a dry camp right by the cliffs. Several other "dry" campsites in very picturesque spots all along the ridgeline. Tripoli campsite was nice, but a bit impacted. Plenty of firewood. Good water. Funny story: Was feeling accomplished (and a bit bushed) after having gone up and back through the rocks. When I got to the end, I met a party of "plainfolk" backpacking the other way--including three ladies in long skirts and Lancaster kapps. They were on their third day, and looked as fresh as flowers! I'm impressed.

Loved this trail. Only did 1/2 of the loop today. Slow incline down. Was nice for the dog too.

Very easy. If you’re looking for a casual stroll in the woods, this maybe good. It was way too plain/straightforward. Maybe a good idea if you want to spend an hour or so with kids or pets. Won’t recommend for anyone looking for views or a thrill.

It was really hard to walk this trail when I went the other day. Many parts of the path were overgrown with thorn bushes & had trees that had fallen over.

This is listed as moderate but was fairly easy. The road to the trailhead was closed for the season so we had to find an alternate entry point with assistance from a hunter familiar with the area. I will agree with the other reviewers that the trail is confusing so use your GPS. We got turned around a few times, but easily found our way back. We had to walk the paved bike road which was nice as it was along the lake. The scenery was pretty even though the trees had lost most of their leaves. I would do this trail again.

Awesome place for exploration of trails off the beaten path! Naturally beautiful!..

Well kept portion of AT. Wooded all the way. Spectacular view almost near the peak of the hike.

Super easy loop... feels like less than 3.7 miles. The pup loved it, and it was a bit muddy in spots with recent rain. Probably very pretty in the spring when the Rhododendrons are in bloom.

Very easy kid friendly trail.
