i was just on a small portion of the trail at douglas falls and overlook but it was gorgeous highly recommend checking it out. just past the postoffice in thomas take a right drive towards douglas there will be a deadend sign on the left take it

This is a great hidden gem. Trails are well maintained.

beautiful view, the drive down Irish Mountain was atrocious would recommend truck, 4×4, or off road vehicle otherwise find alternate route because rd is highly washed out and cars will not make it. otherwise trail was well made and waterfalls were amazing

I would consider this hike easier than Seneca Rocks Trail any day. We did this with a 4 year old & she hiked the whole way by herself. Gorgeous views!

Went May18-19. Overnight.
Lots of rain week prior and the night of, creeks were high and fast making crossing challenging, especially at night. Camped above main falls. Beautiful hike out despite wet feet for 10 miles. (there and back)

great hike...park at marina...trail head across the road...take copperhead road...it will take you to the moon...loved the savannah around the moon...very pretty...wouldnt rate hard though

A great trail for a peaceful walk with the dog.

A little muddy after days of heavy rain, but still an easy & pleasant hike with the dog.

Great surface but mostly a MTB trail. Could be rough if a lot of bikers are out. The name is actually Old FIELDS Trail.

Great walk

Did this hike with the dog and kids and was a really great time. The views are awesome when you get to the top, if in the area definitely give it a try.

Absolutely beautiful worth all those steps! Trail was wide and easy to navigate. No cell service at all for me out there just something to be aware of!

Beautiful in the winter.
Went Dec. 31st solo for an over night. Temps in the teens, singles over night, foot of snow, creek and falls almost completely frozen. Amazing nook to camp under right next the main falls.
Be careful, cell service is zero. Cold weather is breathtaking, but dangerous.

nice little trail.

We loved this beautiful trail! However, we were expecting a 4 mile loop, we did the whole loop but it was only 2.4 miles. If you want to make it a 4 mile loop you got to do it twice. Don’t know why it’s listed it as a 4 mile loop.

I wouldn’t consider this an easy trail due to climbing back up the stairs. But it’s well worth doing!

beautiful place. allloooottt of water on the trails. pretty much hike Creek beds. trail markers are few and far between, lots of trails to circumvent the actual trail because of water. alot of random campsites already established with fire rings . overall had a great time. just wish for more trail markers or blaze marks.

This is one tough hike. But well worth it. The views at the top of the mountain is beautiful. It overlooks the town of harpers ferry. I hike it at least once a month. A must do

a lot of uphill but wonderfully taken care of and great for weight loss and muscle building. great scenic stops and places to rest as well.

Beautiful view and nice trail. There are muddy spots after rain.

A moderately difficult hike if you’re not accustomed to a slow rise in elevation If you’re a hiker it’s a quick hike to a spectacular vista. I will go back every time I visit the park.

I thought I was in shape until I walked this "moderate" trail. How wrong I was! This is one of the most strenuous trails I have done in months. The overlook at the top was beautiful & well worth the photos I was able to get... but I would have prepared more for the walk if I had known just how difficult it was going to be. Take lots of water.

Enjoyed the three mile section from Cairo to the Bonds Creek Tunnel. The picnic are on the other side of the tunnel was a nice pit stop.

Trailhead is on left before the picnic area. Park on the right next to a faded orange gait. This is a hike in the woods pretty much straight up the mountain. one nice vista near the top. The trail meets a gravel road at the top, no view. Good hike for the bliss of the walk, spring wildflowers and one nice view spot.

My baby sis and I hiked this BEAUTIFUL trail today, May 12, 2018. The first mile was a bit torturous,

This trail is NOT moderate. It is strenuous, but worth every step. stunning vista view is your reward for a challenging climb.

Beautiful waterfalls especially when you go right after a big rainstorm like I did. The hike is easy but be prepared for lots of steps but worth it to see the falls.

Really enjoyed this hike... lots of open areas, streams, and peaceful surroundings. Great hike if you just want to walk and meditate. Very easy with just a couple easy hills. Saw some black bear scat but never encountered the bear. I will definitely do this again... think it would be fun with a group. Only downside is at the end of the trail you have to walk about a mile on a gravel road that was boring if you have two cars leave one at each end to avoid this.

We hiked this March 24, 2018, after a small blizzard in the area. It was absolutely magical! There was almost a foot of snow. Beware... this trail gets icy FAST. We had poles and microspikes, and used them most of the hike. The people without spikes looked pretty miserable. This is a steep trail, but offers great views at the end!

my wife and I spent our honeymoon riding this Trail on our bikes.
