    This is a beautiful waterfall hike right outside of the town of Ohiopyle. Cucumber Falls are a very short walk on dirt (not paved) from the parking lot. It's a really short walk. When you walk from the parking lot you are at the top of the falls looking straight at them. You can hear the roar of the falls and see the bridal-like veil of water, and it is simply gorgeous. There is also a walking dirt trail down to the river's edge and there are railings to secure you. Some folks were at the bottom of the falls taking pics and others were actually behind the falls and walking through, getting super wet, of course! You can either head down to the falls and hike on a more difficult trail along the water or stay at the top of the falls and travel a much flatter and easier trail on a ledge above the river. Allow a few hours if you want to be adventurous, otherwise you can just enjoy Cucumber Falls for a half hour. If you want to spend more time and decide to do the loop, you will also see the Cascades Waterfall and the Slides, where water beautifully cascades over smooth rocks. Be careful! The rocks are slippery, so bring appropriate waterproof shoes, or good shoes with traction that you don't mind getting wet.

    This is great, easy trail for beginners or children. There are multiple places to stop with a wonderful view. If you're just looking for a nice, casual, walk to enjoy nature and explore the wonderful world of Ohiopyle, this is a great trail to start at!
