Huron Falls, Pennsylvania

Huron Falls is another beautiful waterfall in Ricketts Glen State Park. With over 20 different waterfalls in the park, it’s not surprising. I have to admit that they all start to blend together, though, which also isn’t surprising, since you could think of this group of falls as one super-large, continuous waterfall (or two waterfalls). When visiting Huron Falls, look for the cool tree right in the middle of the falls. It’s easy to miss those little things!

Directions:

  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.
