Always a favorite! A good way to spend a few hours or just sit by the lake and relax.

I will not pay for parking to walk in the woods. $10 was the cheapest. Even the parking spot to sight see near the big 5 mph turn has a little trail with a sign that says pass needed.

very muddy this time of year, almost swamp like but views of Lake Ontario was the payoff.

First time hiking this trail and I really enjoyed it! The waterfall was unexpected and beautiful!

Nice and easy trail with nice views. A lot of different trails you can venture off too. For being this time of year I was actually surprised at how many people were there so probably a place I would stay away from during the warm seasons.

Great half day hike. This recorded trip doesn’t completely match the way the trail blazes lead. Lots of snow and ice on the trail. Did this on 12/8

Well this was my first time at the falls, I went with my brother in law and nephew. Our plans were to take the shorter trail due to it getting dark so early again. We accidentally ended up in the lower parking lot and said the hell with it and took the longer route. First and foremost the extra hike was definitely work it. Just the few extra waterfalls on it alone are worth it.
Once we got to the loop it was beautiful, but holy steps Bat-man!! lol. It was a hike up hill. Since we had some snow recently it was definitely very dangerous in spots, I understand why they have so many warnings posted.
Over all, with the careful footing for to the ice and the MANY pictures we stopped to take, the whole trek took us 4.5 hr's. And we finished just in time as the sun was going down and the rain began.
Overall a great first time experience at Rickets Glenn. We must have discussed or future trips back half a dozen times over the hike.

Great easy scenic trail

Amazing in the winter.

Easy but icy and snowy walk (spikes made it easy today), not a lot of effort but huge payoff in the view which is breathtaking

My son took me out on Falls Trail the day before Thanksgiving. He is an experienced climber and guide and I learned a lot about hiking in winter. We were the only people on the trail and got to see the falls in a pristine snow-covered setting. Unbelievable. We went to Waters Meet and then turned around, as it was pretty strenuous for me. It was incredibly beautiful.

Great reward with little risks. You get beautiful views with a low level of intensity or danger. This is a very well kept trail and suitable for any level of experience.

for mountain biking, expect a lot of technical riding. Rocks, roots, ruts, streams, patches of mud, ..generally gnarly and fun !

Great views. Easy. Paved

Love this trail. Hiked twice — once in the spring and once in the middle of summer. Would like to try again in the fall. Can be very crowded, but the falls are breathtaking and worth it. Good idea to bring bug spray on this hike during the summer.

This was my first solo hike ( well with my dog) I was nervous but the trail I took (trail 1) was marked very well. The only trouble I had was that the markers are yellow and so were the leaves on the trees! Made a good challenge though. It was a great hike, I’m glad I finally worked up the nerve to go!

This is obviously a great hike, though it can be crowded at times. Awesome falls just about the entire hike. It took us about 4 hours to do the loop on a less crowded day. It can be slippery so use caution. Must do hike and IMHO late October early November is the best time.

Spent a wonderful fall morning on the excellently marked Hemlock Trail. Groomed trails with many options and markings allowed for a peaceful hike in an old growth area. Numerous water inlets and outlets provide additional layer of interest to the lake which has a beautiful observation deck. Slight ability to hear traffic at times as you come back to trail head but the heritage of this areas/trail well worth the trip. A must for all Pennsylvanians!!

beautiful waterfalls

I hiked around the lake to Castle Point then back to end of lake and to Beacon Hill FP. Very windy day, but sunny. Gorgeous views. The wind had blown a lot of leaves off the trees but still beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful! The fall foliage was beautiful.

Trail is beautiful! Falls vary in size but all are great. Just hiked today and leaves made for slippery rocks and trails but the scenery was perfect! Great fall hike for sure. I will definitely return. My German Shepherd who is almost 11 years old pretty much ran this whole trail which means I did as well. Also lots of detours into the water for fun! Great trail for dogs (if larger in size and in good shape) lots of well marked trails and plenty of spots to step aside to let people pass. Highly recommend this trail! Experience it because it's worth it!

Beautiful trail and waterfall views

AWESOME trail for a short hike.

We took the gorge trail out and back, if you haven’t seen this trail definitely do it. There is a good set of stairs to climb and my knee was hurting but it was worth it. The fall was gorgeous and the bridge crossings were nice. You also should see the cowshed falls as well, it’s on the way.

Great hike, good family hike.

heavily packed on weekends.

This is one of my favorite hikes that I’ve ever done!! It’s amazing to see so many waterfalls in one day! Each big & beautiful! Easy trail. Don’t miss the little red lizards!
