Ganoga Falls is the largest of the waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park at about 90′ tall. It’s an amazing waterfall to view. There are multiple ways to view the falls. There is a short but steep trail leading down to the base of the falls, which I would definitely recommend doing. When I went down, there was a family playing around in the pool underneath the falls.
You can also view the falls close up by taking another short trail that leads to to the middle of the falls. I got confused, as I thought that the waterfall trail was ending here, only to realize that I had missed a turn a short ways back. It was still a very nice view, though not as good as the one at the base.
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.
