Ricketts Glen State Park Hike

Falls Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park is the classic hike in the park. It's also one of the best hikes in all of Pennsylvania and is considered by many to be the single best waterfall hike in the eastern United States. The 7-mile (~4hours) semi-loop through both Ganoga Glen and Glen Leigh visits 21 named waterfalls, the highest being 94' Ganoga Falls. We'll meet at the bottom of the glens along Highway 118, parking at the Evergreen Parking Area on the south side of the highway. Coordinates:[masked] -76.27639.

They have 2 parking areas, we'll be meeting by the one with the Trailhead Sign at the EverGreen Parking Area, it's the parking lot with the Kiosk/Post/Hut that contains Maps and Brochure.

Cell service may be limited, please keep that in mind.

    The falls trail is still currently closed to those without crampons or ice climbing gear. If you don't have the proper gear the park rangers will turn you away if they see you. Check out the website for more info.

      Park Rangers say it is still closed. This looks like a memorial day week end or after hike .
