We really enjoyed this trail. Not as rocky as some others in this area, but not so smooth that it's boring. Novices might find it a little too rough. A few moderate descents and gentle climbs but since these trails follow fire roads the hills aren't very steep. Late fall (after the leaves are down) would seem to be the best time to see the Lehigh Gorge; the foliage blocked this view from most vantage points. (Late fall would also be the best time to be mistaken for a deer and shot--a trade-off.) There are a couple stream crossings for refreshment. Lastly we found this trail to be about ten miles, rather than the four miles as listed in the book. Perfect for those who don't want silky-smooth flat terrain, but aren't ready for the X-Games. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
