Unnamed Falls, Ricketts Glen, Pennsylvania

An unnamed waterfall in Ricketts Glen (May 2009)

I’m not really sure which waterfall this is. Of the 20+ waterfalls in Ricketts Glen, this is one of the few that I am truly unsure about. This waterfall was not on one of the main creeks, but was instead flowing into the main creek right near Mohican Falls.

It’s a pretty waterfall, though it is blocked by a large tree. You can get much closer than I did. There were people taking some serious photographs as I was viewing the falls, so I didn’t want to interrupt them.

Directions:
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.
