"This great hike in Douthat State Park should definitely be coupled with nearby Stony Run Falls, either as a separate hike or a loop. About the name: no one at the state park that I talked to knew where the name came from or how long the waterfall has been called that. The best guess the park information person could muster is that a "suck" was local usage for a small stream years ago. That could be true, but I can't find any other sucks on a map of the area. Blue Suck Falls: one of a kind! You can hike Stony Run Falls and Blue Suck Falls together by using the Locust Gap Trail to link the two. Pick up a map at the park visitor center to explore that possibility." Read more
