A deep, steep-walled gorge, thick vegetation, rock outcroppings and many waterfalls characterize Lehigh Gorge State Park. In Luzerne and Carbon Counties in eastern Pennsylvania, the park follows the Lehigh River from the outlet of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Francis E. Walter Dam at the northern end, to the town of Jim Thorpe at the southern end of the park. Whitewater boating and biking are popular activities.

A bit challenging but so worth it

Well worth the treacherous climb to the top of the falls.

Challenging but beautiful hike beside the waterfalls

Nice trail, definitely a challenge. But also a fair amount of graffiti, and lots of people on the trail without the proper gear or even proper footwear, regardless of many signs warning of the dangers of the trail requiring proper gear/preparedness.

Hard path, sometimes there is no path, only slippery dangerous rocks. Make sure to follow orange marks from the beginning.
