  • I have been going to hike up at 7 Tubs for years. It is beautiful and different than most hiking trails. There are many different paths to take and many nooks and crannies to wonder through.  more »
  • Seven Tubs Natural Area is minutes from I-81 and easy to find. There is plenty of parking at the trail head and the parking lot is very close to one of the most dramatic views of the park - the waterf...  more »
  • Lots of trails around the waterfalls and “tubs.” Fall leaves were great. Only detractors were that the trails were not marked and often unclear, as well as the sign where you turn off the main road wa...  more »

  • My only complaints are the litter and sketchy people. The falls are amazingly beautiful and the wildlife is also very diverse. It's nice that they added a picnic area... but there are no bathrooms just a port a potty. So prepare. Great for photographers and families, but I'd advise taking some pepper spray if you go it alone.
  • Has a nice 2 mile loop. Follow the yellow marks. The tub area is very scenic. Small park.
  • Me and my girlfriend decided to see this trail while staying in Wilkes barre before heading up to Ricketts Glen (go there if you have the chance) it was a very beautiful and nice trail, it will not disappoint, there are plenty of places to enjoy the trail by yourself and immerse yourself in nature. The trail was short and pretty easy! The tubs are really sweet, you'll find yourself pointing and going "whoa!"
  • This is a lovely park with great views and good "pools" along the river to swim in. The parking areas are a bit small and the trails could be better marked and possibly made a bit easier to walk on but all and all a nice place for a little hike with adiquite shade.
  • This place is a wonderful and beautiful Majestic Wonder of our area. With that said it is being absolutely destroyed but disgusting juvenile as well as adult people from our area. It is absolutely covered in filth. At any given time one can walk through this beautiful place and find a plethora destruction and garbage. People have broken hundreds of bottles,Throne cans, garbage, dirty diapers, cigarette butts anything else you could possibly imagine one would bring all over the area. You don't even need to go far and I mean literally step out of your vehicle in the parking lot before you'll find broken beer bottles and beer cans strewn throughout the parking area. It saddens me that you also find people have spray painted rocks and ledges that are tens of thousands of years old, carve their names in anything they can possibly and a tear the tree limbs off any tree in order to try to start a crude trash feed fire. If this place continues down this path and the authorities don't regularly police this area I'm afraid in no time this wonderful place will become a desolate trash Heap on the side of the mountain like so many other places in our area.
