PA Ricketts Glen 22 Waterfalls
Marker Description: If you like waterfalls this is the place to go! 22 named waterfalls in 7mi. From 15' to 97'. The hike is either an across Highland Trail, down Glen Leigh Trail and up Canoga Glen Trail or down Canoga Glen and up Glen Leigh Trail and across Highland Trail. There are two streams with multiple waterfalls, which join at the point you head back up - or go down to see a few more waterfalls. Somewhat difficult hike along the falls but we saw three year olds and eighty year olds doing it without trouble.

The trail is extremely well maintained with hand placed rocks and stone steps along the waterfalls, but it is quite steep at points. The waterfalls are something to see but it does get to the point where you are like - another waterfall really. If you fish, there are some nice holes beneath the falls. We saw a few trout in the shallows but didn't bring our gear. Saw lots of dogs on the trail.

Marker placed at the parking area - Rose Parking Area.

We took the hike from the top parking lot and we hiked across down and up. There were quite a few people but it was Mother's Day. I'm sure this is a place that always has hikes. The falls were great, the 94 foot job is something to see. The trail is very well maintained. The old growth trees are awesome. The forest is very beautiful. I was reminded of how spectacular really old trees can be even on the east coast.
