Not too demanding physically, a very pleasant hike, easy to pace oneself between 2-3 miles per hour. Spectacular views of the valley in numerous overlooks. The terrain varies from smooth pine needles with no rocks to basketball sized ones, neither lasting very long in duration, so there is a nice variety. Just past Shubert's Gap, the water table is fairly high, and the trail splits into twins, allowing a hiker to avoid ankle-deep slop in many places. It reconnects and is easy to follow. Special visual treat is a boulder field courtesy of PA's early glaciers. Last few miles out is a gentle rolling stroll through endless ferns. Highly recommend.
