F.L. Ricketts Falls was one of the first waterfalls that I saw on my hike on the Waterfall Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park, and its beauty is a great indicator of things to come. F.L. Ricketts Falls is a beautiful cascading waterfall. It’s not too tall or even that wide, even compared to other falls in the park.
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. It should be open now, and is the closest to the start of the Falls Trail. It apparently fills up more quickly on popular days.
