Cayuga Falls is not the most memorable waterfalls in Ricketts Glen, though it is still very scenic. It is a great waterfall to get long exposure shots. It is only about 6 or 7′ tall, and is wider than it is tall. Looking at other pictures online, the log in the photo no longer seems to be there. I know logs bother some people in waterfall photos, but I always like them because it reminds us that nature is constantly changing. A tree can be there one day, and gone the next, though who knows if humans were the cause of that change!?
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.
