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.


  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. You can access the Falls Trail using the Lake Rose parking area or Beach Lot #2 parking area, though you’ll be starting on different creeks. Start your hike on the loop by connecting into the Falls Trail.

Check out my note from Sheldon Reynolds Falls about precautions to take in Ricketts Glen.

Accessibility: 5/10 (moderate)
Height: 20′
Length of Hike: 4 miles round-trip
