Nice, easy walk if you're looking for a short hike. Beautiful in late summer and autumn. Make sure to take the path to the pond in the center of the field (to the left if you're traveling counterclockwise).

Glen Helen Loop Trail

The day we went, the weather was perfect so it was a little more populated. We got a map (and thank god we did) and went to start working on the smaller 'red loop' for beginners. We saw some beautiful wildflowers, falls, we went to the raptor center - which if you can find it you really should go see it. They have an amazing collection of birds: falcons, owls, hawks, bald eagles (all of these birds have been injured or have an ailment that prevents them from thriving in the wild). The trails were easy to navigate. Until we took a wrong turn....*the trails are not marked at all* We ended up getting "lost" for almost 2 hours, seeing no one. Glad my husband has good navigational skills. But with that being said, we ended up seeing the most amazing tree and woodpeckers and crows. The solitude was very welcoming. After it was said and done, we looked at the map and realized we inadvertently had done the "expert" trail - LOL! Guess we are better hikers than we thought.

According to the sign the hike to the falls is only 1/6 of a mile. My GPS watch showed clocked it at less than 1/2 mile down and back. Suggest you park in the overflow lot to the left of the road since there are only thee spots on the right (two if you have a person who can't park).

Bridge is still out but if the water is low the stream is easy to cross. Very enjoyable hike that only took about 40 minutes. Waterfall was pretty.

this was our second favorite trail out of all 6. it's beautiful and challenging with all the stairs and squeezing through boulders, but the view is fantastic! we were especially in awe when we got to the top and climbed into the rock cave...amazing!!! worth all the steps!!

out of all the trails at hocking Hills this one was our favorite. you really feel like you're in nature since most of the trail is on uneven paths, climbing over tree roots and rocks, and surrounded by green everywhere. it felt the most naturey and most challenging (but would not rate it hard...it's moderatly hard) fantastic trail!!
