Had a chance to hike to see the Eternal Flame. The Rangers will hike with you to where the flame is burning. We took the Chestnut Ridge Road trail. It is an adventure! Bring a walking stick if you need balance. Wear tennis or a...More
Great hike -about a mile to get to the flame. Steep decline so wear sneakers. Recommend taking a sturdy walking stick as some spots are slippery or have big steps. I went with my 15 year old . You do have to crawl under some...More
We picked a great day to go apparently. It torrential rained earlier in the day and so the bottom of the gorge was FULL of rushing water. That could be looked at as good and bad. I wore non-slip water shoes and wouldn't do it...More
There are two trailheads in the park used to access the Eternal Flame. One is on Chestnut Ridge Road and is a very short hike. The other is from within the park at the base of the hill known as a Mother and is a...More
We got lucky and the flame was lit, apparently sometimes it isn't. The hike was easily done in 1 hour round trip. If you have time to kill outside the Buffalo area it is worth it. Really pretty scenery. This is not a paved trail...More
It was a Tropical heat warning kind of Day. We went late August. Short trail. Definitely grab a walking stick. I work out several times a week and yeah I had a hard time getting back up the hill. Going down I didn't realize it...More
A moderately easy trail. You will definitely need a walking stick for this hike (I bring mine everywhere, you never know when you'll need it!). A good pair of hiking boots are a good idea also because you'll be navigating a lot of tree roots...More

It was a pretty good hike to get to the flame. The creek was almost dry so we could walk in it but if it was early spring you’d definitely need boots or have wet feet. Slippery in some spots and uneven terrain also. Grab...More

Yes, there were several people with dogs there. Please have them on a leash and keep an eye on them though! The trails can be very narrow and slippery at times, as well as very crowded with kids and others who may be unsteady. There are some steep cliffs you should keep your dog from (and you) as well.
