Quakertown Falls, Pennsylvania

Quakertown Falls in April 2015

Right along the border of Pennsylvania and Ohio you can find Quakertown Falls. I visited Quakertown Falls in 2015 and after that it may have been closed for a time. From what I have read, in 2021 there were some improvements made to help with safety, and also to ensure you can legally visit the falls.

I can understand why there might be some concerns. I remember this falls being tricky to photograph because the cliffs/rocks around it are rather steep, and one could easily slip and hurt themselves if they’re not careful. I haven’t been there since these improvements were made, so I can’t comment on if it’s “safer”, but the private property issue has at least become clearer, with the waterfall now being “officially” accessible.

There are 6 easy waterfalls to find in the area around Quakertown Falls. Visit this map I’ve put together to see the other falls I’ve visited in the area: Pennsylvania Waterfalls. There is also another waterfall, Lanterman’s Falls in Youngstown, Ohio, just a few miles away.

Directions:

  1. From New Castle, PA, head west along US-224 toward Ohio.
  2. About 1/2 a mile from the Ohio-Pennsylvania border on the right side of the road, you’ll come to a parking area with room for a few cars.
  3. The falls will be found from that parking area.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
