This trail has the best of both worlds for you and your dog—solitude in quiet, almost undisturbed nature on one side of the Kittatinny Ridge and a popular glacial stream on the other. A short jaunt across the Appalachian Trail connects both sides of the mountain.

enjoyed this trail enough to take it several times as an afterwork activity while on business to the area AND spend a full weekend on it with a hiking partner. Unfortunately the weekend trip was slightly dampened by a fire that was still slightly burning (unsure weather it was a controlled burn or not). The visitor's center was closed each time I went so I had to rely on GPS and markers to make the best of my trip, but it worked out great. One thing to be careful of if you're planning heavy hiking is that the water at lake near the top (or at least the one I stopped at - again, no map) was not potable. The streams were fine and it was some naturally occurring issue that I can't recall. Just a planning consideration. All-in-all, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would do it again.

Loved this trail. Took my 7 year old son. We took the AT to the Holly Springs Trail then down the Dunnfield Creek Trail.

This was a great hike, It had rained for a few days before and the trails were real wet and unpassable at the end so i had to take the AT to the end.
