Ozone Falls, Pennsylvania

Ozone Falls in May 2009

There are so many waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park that it’s hard to keep track of all of them. Looking at the pictures, I realized how pretty Ozone Falls is. I think what interests me the most is that the waterfall fans out. At the crest, the waterfall is only about 1 or 2 feet wide, whereas at the widest, it is likely 7 or 8 feet. It’s just very interesting.

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. 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: 60′
Length of Hike: 4 miles round-trip
