I loved this trail. There was a hill that I wasn't expecting but got through it. I saw so much nature. Lots of people walking the trail too so just be careful. I ran around 1pm-3pm stopping to take pictures.

Beautiful trail, a good amount of solitude for the Suburbs. Did 9.5 miles, will likely go back.

Very hot day and the availability to water fountains was very limited... Once we did find water, the taste was really terrible.

excellent day hike. bring repellant! i was eaten alive when i went earlier in the summer. the waterfall was gorgeous although the path to it was not clearly marked (unless i just missed it). i just happened to be curious abt where a set of steps at a fork led. i took the steps down and found the waterfall. most of thelath is shaded by trees though there are some stretches that are in the open. bring screen if going on a sunny day. i also appreciated the port-o-potty in the middle of the trail. you pass a couple of overlooks and open fields where all you hear are your footsteps on the path and grasshoppers/crickets. oh yes! the sounds of nature.

Great for stroller friendly trails!!! When I go with the little one I'm always searching for new beautiful places and waterfall glen is always on my top 5 kid friendly trips. You have to cross the road a couple times but it's not too bad. Highly recommend for stroller tots!

Great day hike, enjoyed the wildlife and the mini waterfall. Would return with bikes.

The trails were nice and wide to accommodate the traffic. It's a pretty heavily used area, but very pretty. The number of road crossings was disappointing though. We took our bikes and it felt like just when I was getting going I had reached the end of that trail and had to cross a road.
