I have to admit that when I tried to remember where I had visited Wyandot Falls, I couldn’t really remember. There are many waterfalls in Ricketts Glen that I clearly remember, but I guess Wyandot Falls isn’t one of them. I don’t even remember the name.
That’s not to say that it isn’t a pretty waterfall, it just might not be the most memorable of the waterfalls in the park. There are others that are smaller that are more memorable for one reason or another. There are also much bigger waterfalls in the park, such as Ganoga Falls. Still, Wyandot Falls is unavoidable, and that is a good thing in my book.
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.
