This easy hike would make a great family hike. Essentially the trail runs alongside the east branch of Wallenpaupack Creek, crosses it on a wooden footbridge, continues to the park boundary, and then returns along the other side of the stream to the trail’s starting point. As with all waterfalls, it’s best to view the falls in early spring or fall or after a rainy period. This hike is part of the extensive Promised Land Trail System, which is contained within Promised Land State Park and the surrounding Delaware State Forest. This system is unique: All its trails are blazed in blue, and the trail markers are numbered and have directional arrows pointing the way from one marker to the next. As with all well-marked trails, when you are approaching a trail intersection, there is a double blaze, which indicates an upcoming intersection or that the trail turns to the right or left.
