Right in the city of Scranton, Roaring Brook takes a plunge. This plunge is Nay Aug Falls. While the waterfall is pretty, it is not the most spectacular drop in Pennsylvania. The interesting thing to me about Nay Aug Falls is actually the rock formations and other scenery on the way to the falls.
Nay Aug Falls is relatively easy to get to. I would say the hardest part was finding the right parking area to access the trail to the falls. The trail down to the falls is really not at all steep, though there might be a few rocks in your path.
- From I-81, take Exit 185.
- Go west on the Scranton Expressway for 1.1 miles and exit at Jefferson Street.
- Heading north, go 2 blocks on Jefferson Ave.
- Turn right onto Mulberry Street. Head to the end of Mulberry Street.
- You will enter Nay Aug Park. Do not park at the first parking area, but take a left and drive a little bit further.
- I parked at the beginning of the last lot that was open. Look for a trail through the grass.
- As you walk on the trail, listen for the sound of the river. This will guide you as you try to find the falls.
Accessibility: 8/10 (easy)
Length of Hike: 0.5 miles round-trip
