This park has several nice and easy trails. Thanks to a spring​/summer Eagle scout project, these trails are some of the best marked I've ever seen. Most of the park is old farmlands mixed with open woods.

Be prepared to get your feet wet. Trails pretty much consist of walking somewhat dried up creek beds. Nov conditions this weekend, icy the first day, wet and muddy the next day. Wasn’t prepared to get knee deep in mud! Trails were not well marked until they intersected, then there were wooden signs with distance between each trail. Nice and quiet trail, great for dogs. Lots of great camping sites along the way with fire pits made by others

Fun trail to go on, Ì went 11/5/17, about 4 hours round trip. Basically walking up a hill half way then down the hill half way. Easy marked trail with blue diamonds (and yellow rectangles) on the trees. You’ll come to the top on the hill where it forks, left will take you on the Allegheny Trail, and right take you to the High Falls (there are signs). Once you come to the railroad tracks make a right and follow the tracks down stream around a few bends until you come to a train stop and you’re there. Ì suggest reading Scott C’s post down below on how to find it because ì had trouble finding the trail head myself.

Great trail, definitely going back in the summer. Ì went 11/11/17 . Started at 9:40am finished at 6:20pm. Did all 20 miles, started at the suspension bridge off rt 72. Made my way down to the fork in the trail (left will take you up the mountain, right will take you along the creek). Ì took the creek way where you have to walk across the creek 4 times. After Ì crossed the 4th time Ì was 8 miles into the trail and headed up the mountain. The trail up the mountain wasn’t bad, just steep, but going down was rough on my knees due to the loose rocks. But Ì made it back down to the fork and headed back to my jeep. Ìf you’re planning on doing this in a day Ì suggest bringing : a head lamp: sandals : extra socks : waterproof case for your phone : and your basic hiking necessities. Ì had no service at all, but this app did track my location on the trail the whole time.

Great easy hike. Not use to the humidity (90%). We went on a misty overcast day but that didn't take away for the beautiful view at the top.

Nice trail with lots of ups and downs. and you can see alot more when the leaves are off. well marked for the most part, but the mile markers didn't match up with my app. and it quit tracking after 17.5 miles but counted the time. so pay attention to the trail markers in case this happens to you. and remember better to go unprepared than to not go at all.

The view is super pretty. Did not like that to complete the loop you have to walk on the road. Few cool ladders for climbing access.
