“Starting from Cucumber Falls, this trail follows the Yough and Meadow Run before climbing above.”

The main access to this trail is at the Cucumber Falls parking lot with a second lot at the end of Kentuck Road. From Cucumber Falls, the trail starts with rocky terrain at the base of the falls, and then follows along the Yough riverfront for approximately a quarter mile. There are chances to stop and enjoy watching rafters make their way around Fern Cliff.
At the mouth of Meadow Run, the trail turns to follow along the stream for a half mile. Here the trail forks, creating the lollipop. Taking the trail to the right will begin the climb to the top of the hill immediately. Taking the trail to the left will follow at the foot of the hill before making the climb. The climb itself is steep and rocky.
The return trip offers another glimpse of rafters on the Yough. The trail doesn't access other trails aside from Great Gorge Trail
