Easy access from the road, ample parking, and close approaches to the scenic creek. Great option for hiking with novices or seniors.

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.

Trail was in relatively good shape, and the vistas were stellar. Some sections are pretty steep, so be advised.

Beautiful mountain, peaceful and subtle. The trail is marked by white markers on the trees. Lots of rocks and boulders. After walking 3 miles in, we turned back because we didn't see where there would be a loop or a scenic view. Views can be seen past the trees. by 4:45pm, the parking lot was packed with vehicles, I'm assuming to see the sunset? not sure. We entered past the gates bridge.

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.

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!

This is a very pretty fall hike along the creek. Muddy though. Like really muddy. Like lose you shoes in the muck muddy. Wear it as a badge of honor.

Nice trail. Gets alittle muddy after rain,but it's still a nice quick hiking trail.

Trail is well marked and has beautiful views
of Tobyhanna creek.

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!

This is one of my favorite hikes! It is very crowded during the summer because people swim at the base of the falls, but the trails are never overpacked. The rocks can get very slippery so you need to wear shoes with good traction. The views are incredible every step of the way!

This was such an amazing hike that I came back 2 days later and hiked the loop again. A must see for everyone.

More difficult than I read. It was a workout but I’m happy I did the 4+ mile loop. Only views were through the trees. Many rocks across the top so I had to be careful. For this 66 year young man I don’t think I’ll do it again.

I love it here

Great hike with lots of steps. Recommend hiking boots as it was wet throughout the trail.

Great hike. One of the best in Pennsylvania I would have to agree. Went the full loop and saw all the falls. Definitely will come back and do it again.

Even though it is kind of a tough loop. I had not hiked in a long while and was able to make it through it without too much pain. Very important to have good hiking shoes because the trail is quite rocky and wet.

Been there almost annually for past 5 years in January. Crampons and ice gear a MUST in Winter

beautiful! was expecting one fall and a short hike .. 6 miles later and about 30 falls later! so cool.

Beautiful trail starting from top with a moderate effort going back up.

An amazing place every Pennsylvanian should hike. Such a gem, and we are so lucky to have this place in PA. The waterfalls are all beautiful and breathtaking. I loved every minute we were there. Swam in a couple holes and waterfalls which was refreshing. Very busy when I was there. The hike is hard at times and can be dangerous if not prepared. I completed the whole loop...was about 9 miles total, but worth it! Make sure you wear boots there. I saw several people almost die because they had the wrong footwear.

A nice walk in the woods, but not extraordinary.

A little crowded but with this kind of scenery it’s to be expected. If you’re a fan of waterfalls you got to do this hike. It is a photographers dream.

didn't really know what to expect when the hubby and I decided to hike this trail. honestly we thought it was going to be a dud with a bunch of small waterfalls. we were completely wrong. this loop was awesome! took some amazing photos and had a lovely relaxing afternoon. in total it took about 4 hours, but we took our time and soaked in the beauty. we went on a Thursday morning. the trail was rather quiet we maybe came across 6 to 10 other groups. I cant wait to explore this trail again next year when we are back in pa!

Nice easy outing with kids 6, 8, and 10 with nice water views. Trail gets muddy so definitely wear boots/good shoes after rain!

My absolute favorite trail. i've been going to Ricketts since I was a little boy on school trips. getting a little crowded for my liking, but definitely a must see trail.

Beautiful old growth forest and great waterfalls, if you'd like to avoid crowds on weekends you'd have to go out very early, as for difficulty it's lower end moderate imo , it's basically steep stairways.

Great hike! Falls are beautiful. Fantastic hike.
