Sheldon Reynolds Falls is one of the 20+ waterfalls of interest in Ricketts Glen State Park. It can be found on the Falls Trail after the creeks meet at Waters Meet.
Ricketts Glen is a great place for waterfalls, but there are a few cautions.
*The hike didn’t seem as hard as I was expecting it to be, but it is still at least 4 miles round trip. You are climbing down into a gorge. To get out, you have to go back up, which means some steep areas. Still, the steep areas are more manageable than I expected since they are punctuated by more level parts of the trail.
*Wear hiking shoes with a grip and keep your hands free in case you trip (wear a backpack).
1) From your starting point, get to the area around Red Rock, PA.
2) Turn onto PA-487, heading north. Go to the entrance to Ricketts Glen and turn right into the entrance.
3) Follow the signs to the Falls Trail. If I remember correctly, you will keep heading toward the right to the parking lot.
4) When I visited in May 2009, the Lake Rose parking lot was closed. In order to access the Falls Trail, head toward Beach Lot #2. From Beach Lot #2, head back toward the drive that leads to a group of cabins. Keep walking down that road, and you will reach an information sign. Head straight down that trail, and it will connect into the Falls Trail.
