I’m not sure that Upper Delaware Falls is actually an officially named waterfall in Ricketts Glen State Park. I have a feeling it’s not, but that I just called it Upper Delaware Falls since it was a short distance upstream from Delaware Falls. Ricketts Glen has multiple drops that are unnamed, but are often just as significant as the named falls. If we named every drop in the park, though, we’d have hundreds of names for significant and insignificant falls!
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.
