Wyandot Falls, Pennsylvania

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. 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: 15′
Length of Hike: 4 miles round-trip
