Springfield Falls, Pennsylvania

I pulled into what I thought was the parking area for Springfield Falls, only to find out that I was just a bit off. There’s a jeweler’s shop right near the falls, but that’s not where you want to start your short journey. (Some place on the web says to start here. It’s not even a good place to view the falls.) After someone let me know, I went a bit further down the road to the official parking area.

From the official parking area, it’s extremely easy to get to Springfield Falls. There’s a short downhill hike to get a view of the falls. At about 15′ tall, it’s not a big waterfall, but I do find that it’s a very photogenic waterfall. Even on a sunny day (which isn’t usually great for waterfalls), you’ll likely get some good shots.

Directions:

  1. There are multiple different ways to arrive at Springfield Falls, so let me give you a general sense of it’s location. If you’re on I-80, you would take exit 15.
  2. You would head south on US-19 for just over 3.5 miles.
  3. If you were heading south, you’d turn left onto Leesburg Station Road (Road 2002). Go past the jewelers, and continue onto Falls Road.
  4. After a very short distance, you’ll come to a parking area on your right, and the falls will be to your left across the road from the parking area.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: ~15′
Length of Hike: 0.1 miles round-trip (at most)
