  • This park has some of the best falls in the area. Well maintained trails make the falls easy to view from different sides and heights. All 3 were beautiful against the backdrop of fall trees. 
  • There were many waterfalls off well marked trails that had unique, rustic bridges across each; added lots of character. The deer fence by Deer Jump Falls was obvious and made you wonder how the local ...  read more »
  • Of the 4 free sets of waterfalls we visited in the area, this was a wonderful find. There is an accessible path to the first set of falls, then a more strenuous path with sets of steps to the second a...  read more »
  • Lovely and easy hike through the woods, weaving through a small stream and charming waterfalls. The park is clean and well paved for the beginning. Then it turns into an easy trail that can be circled around in about 1 hour. The waterfalls are pretty. They are not huge, but lovely. Bring a little picnic, sit off the trail and enjoy a family fun afternoon in the woods!
  • The park is really lovely and the walkways/trails fairly easy to navigate even for our ten year old. Parking was easy and the lot had plenty of room. The bathrooms were a little rough so use one before or after your visit if you can. The only downside for me were the people climbing all over and diving into the pools despite the plethora of warnings...because people treat this park like a swimming pool there was some trash and broken glass. I'd recommend bringing a big zip lock bag so you can take your own trash in and out. All in all, a great day trip and a gorgeous place to explore.
  • I absolutely love the park but unfortunately the people who go there don't care about the natural beauty of this place. I live in Pennsylvania and love this state. I love how beautiful it is and the people. We, who live here don't appreciate our parks being destroyed by the people who don't. I swear the majority of people are from NYC and bring their trashy ways here. Respect our parks and the many ways we enjoy our home or don't come at all. I will do whatever I have to to make sure your visit is so terrible you don't come back.
  • Wonderful place to hike, enjoy spectacular water falls and enjoy the laborious efforts of FDR's CCC, the paths and bridges are very well made and have stood up to the test of time. Pack a picnic lunch as there are many spots to take in a bunch of nature!
  • Hard to find but a easy hike past three waterfalls. Wear you swim trunks and take a dip, it's a popular local spot for swimming.
