Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Hiking to the twenty-one named falls of Ricketts Glen State Park over a nearly 7-mile loop is considered by many to be the singular waterfall hiking experience in Pennsylvania.

At this state park you will head up Kitchen Creek and a tributary, seeing fall after fall, cataract after cataract, on a remarkable trail system that has to be walked upon to be truly appreciated."
