I biked this trail in June and it’s very doable. The hills are minimal. The trail includes old train tunnels; they are eerie but impressively historic. The trail also passes through a small, quaint town which also contains a lot of history.

great lower body workout! ((positive thinking will make you push forward and up

Absolutely breathtaking from the bottom or the top Wonderful place to stay. no cell phone service is actually amazing. Nice break from the hustle of life! Have to see these rocks in person. Pictures don’t do them justice. Great weekend stay.

Short easy walk with beautiful view. Great off roading trail (is a West Virginia road) just past where you park for Lindy point. But only lifted 4x4 or dirt or mountian bike can make it the whole way thru.

Breathtaking view from the top. Very very hard hike. Straight up. Was April but still felt like 100 degrees.

We drove an hour to where AllTrails mapped us for this trail, only to find it was in the middle of a residential neighborhood with no apparent parking. Waste of time, unless someone can provide better directions for where to park and get to trailhead. :-/

Follow the blue blazes of the Tuscarora Trail. After an uphill saunter, you will be rewarded with several panaramic views.

Gorgeous scenic overlook. The beginning is straight uphill, and fairly demanding. It’s not an easy hike. The scenic overlook is amazing. Spectacular view of Harpers Ferry. This is a “must do” hike for everyone!

Trail is a steady climb. Best views are past the warning sign on top of the rocks. It is dangerous. Be careful. Kids MUST be held on to. Views are awesome. If you are unsteady or unsure, use the viewing deck.

Nice day hike. Parts of the trail were a little boring, especially hiking the road back. But, the surprises are worth the effort. Have lunch at the rock cliff.

My favorite trail. This trail is absolutely beautiful. Moss, rocks, water, mountain view, tree colors, peaceful, wide range of hiking atmospheres, railroad history. Rocky for most of the trail. When you reach the sign at the top of the trail, explore to the left for the mountain view. You should be able to find several paths through the ground thicket. There is also a view off of the right side of the trail just before reaching the sign. Enjoy.

Cool rocks and natural features. A couple of slightly tricky small stream crossings. Mossy areas. One wooden bridge. A short peaceful picturesque hike.

Nice falls. Trail map was a little misleading.

Fairly challenging but a good length with a great view of the Harpers Ferry train bridge at the end. It’s quite steep at the very beginning and coming back up from the overlook at the end, but the elevation gain is mostly all in one place. The trail is manageable even when muddy.

My only complaint is that there isn’t much to look at along the trail aside from the view at the end and crossing the Shenandoah at the beginning.

It’s definitely a challenging ascent but well worth it once you make it to the overlook. We watched the sunset and it was spectacular. Highly recommend

Great trail. Easy downhill walk out, uphill all the way back. If you go down to both cliffs, it’s a little tougher because of the rock gardens. Well worth the short hike in the fall just to see the colors. You can mountain bike this, but the final down hill to the cliffs is very difficult.

Good trail for people just starting out hiking. The second falls is a little tricky to find in times of little rainfall. I’ve also done this on mountain bike, and the rock gardens are challenging.

Hill in the beginning is NO joke. Beautiful view and so worth it. Watch out for the runners. Parking is a pain but I scored a spot right at the opening. Tow path isn’t really marked that well so if you don’t park in town make sure you ask someone on the trail what they saw on the last mile marker.

Two stars because the hike was not as described. Whoever tagged this as “easy” must have hiked only straight incline, lots of elevation-type hikes. I agree with the other hiker—this is a “moderate” at LEAST. The trail is not marked well and you’re surrounded by wall and trees... if you came to get an awesome view of the river , you’ll be bummed. But, if you like adventure and you’re used to badly marked trails, you’ll be fine.

A beautiful, muddy hike. Bring a copy of the map. At one section there where 3 different trail markers going different ways. Keep going straight and you'll be fine.

Even though it rained all day yesterday, the trail was generally in good shape. In some places it was wet and slippery. Just had to take your time in these spots. Loved the overlook. A great way to start 2019!! Will be back!

Very fun short trail

This trail leads you to a stone road in the middle of the woods. No views, pretty muddy, and not worth the effort.

great trail with my dog. moderate incline for the return trip.
