Of the many falls in Ricketts Glen State Park, Conestoga Falls is one of the waterfalls with a more interesting name. I remember that it was in the park, though after looking at the pictures, I realized that it isn’t one of the more memorable falls in the park in terms of size or distinctiveness. Actually, it seems like it might be one of the smallest in the park, at least of the named falls. Some of the other unnamed falls in the park seem to me to be even bigger, I guess.
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.
