Just did a section of it with our scouts. Nice trail, but loose rocks and abundant large acorns can make footing a little tricky in some places. Note, if traveling north from the South Welcome Station (mark N), water can be tough to find along the trail until Prospector's Spring, just north of mark K, about 14.5 miles from the welcome station. We had no joy at Brier Rose Branch (south of mark M) or the fire tower near Iron Mountain shelter.

Gorgeous hike and a good distance. Lots of scenery and not crowded at all. Only complaint is that the portion of the hike that brings you back to the starting point runs parallel to the Palisades Parkway so you hear the cars.

It’s beautiful here and peaceful. There’s a waterfall and a nice trail.

Nice walking trail.

Pleasant

Beautiful waterfalls but the trail was very congested. We were literally stuck behind little traffic jams at certain points. Avoid the weekends!

My garmin watch says 12 miles round trip. We hike this last Saturday. The trail was covered by the snow all the way to summit. It was Freezing cold, windy,cloudy and foggy,when we reached the summit. Definitely a great and memorable experienced.

The trails are great and you can always take a shortcut via the yellow cutoff if you don't feel like doing the whole thing.

Nothing to special for the length you have to hike. Suspension bridge was pretty cool but could have skipped this one if you are in a time crunch visiting Hocking Hills

Great day trip. Nothing but steep incline so have your legs rested and ready. Well maintained until you get past Marmot Meadows, then the snow makes it a little difficult to stay on the trail. Well worth the effort to go all the way up, the view from the end of the trail over the ice fields is spectacular. Just keep pushing!

Awesome views. Big cave rooms nestled in the rock.

Step rocky descents but really pleasant hike. About an hour should cover everything
