Murray Reynolds Falls, Pennsylvania

Murray Reynolds Falls in May 2009

When I saw Murray Reynolds Falls in the picture just now, my first thought was that Murray Reynolds Falls is one of the more distinct waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park. Many of the waterfalls in the park have a very cascade-like feel to them, whereas this waterfall seems to have a sharper drop to it. That’s not to say that many of the other waterfalls don’t have larger single drops, but they don’t always stand out very well, at least not compared to waterfalls elsewhere.


  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: 16′
Length of Hike: 4 miles round-trip
