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.

Not safe for dogs yet. Falls are gushing and icy. Make sure to wear hiking boots, the trail is very rocky and can be slippery at times. Requires some maneuvering.

Not for the faint of heart! Absolutely beautiful in the winter with the icicles! If you’re looking for an easier option than the rock scramble: at the wooden sign at the bottom of the trail go up to the right. You can get to the upper falls and then go back down the same way. I don’t recommend going down the steep rocks.

conditions were perfect. the cold created spectacular views. Best time of year to enjoy this trail without the crowds. don't forget to explore the old train tunnel post hike

Amazing hike. One of our favorites. Our daughters age 7 & 9 loved climbing the rocks. We went at the beginning of November. The weather was perfect and the foliage was beautiful.

I’m a beginner hiker and I thought this was a challenging trail. That said, it was 100% worth it. The views were amazing! Went 1/6/19, gorgeous day ~ 50 days and the falls were flowing!

Short but beautiful! You go Glen CoCo!

We love you Glen CoCo!!

New Years Day! Wonderful hike to start the year. As others have stated that Trail is not well marked at least in the beginning and near the end. After you park and come down the steps turn to the right and go under the track area. You can go straight ahead but it is more difficult or you can turn right and follow the blazes on the trees. We went straight along the river and that in itself earned thed difficult rating. Because of the rains this year the falls were outstanding! Superior! After viewing top falls we followed the blue blazes then ted to the bottom.

This is not the kind of hike I would take a beginner in poor shape.

This is a great trail with some gorgeous views but also a few challenging, rocky areas -- I wouldn't recommend for a beginner. The biggest downside is there can be too much traffic at times, as it's in a heavy tourist area.

A buddy and I went hiking here the Monday before Christmas and it was an amazing experience. the weather was perfect, wasnt too cold. I came here for a solo hike in the summer and it was extremely crowded but this time we didnt see anyone else on the trail. still green and falls weren't frozen yet. Great all around hike views are gorgeous, and I recommend it to everyone up for a challenge.

Hiked this trail during the summer time, went on a really nice warm day! Perfect, not to hot. Completed the trail in about 3 hours, it was a slippery trail around all the rocks because of the water. I wouldn't necessarily say it's hard. The whole trail itself is beautiful, offers nice scenery for great pictures!

cant believe i didn't rate this trail after hike . musta been exhausting lol. Well this is worth the hype!! going back soon! i seen ladies beetin feet up like warrior's! hike in summer unless you like crisp mist

Went here for the first time today beautiful place. I was the only one out there and it was awesome. It’s not a easy hike I did the whole loop in about 3 hours. I had to use this app a few times because trailers are not well marked. Definitely recommend! Wear proper gear it may look like a short hike it’s definitely a challenge. excited to return there in the warmer weather.

My family of 6 LOVED this hike so much! It was challenging and fun for all ages, but we took extra caution and went slow with our 6 year old. The kids loved playing on the rocks and we were so impressed with the waterfalls. I highly recommend this hike! Wear hiking boots for sure!

Good trail, hiked this in the early fall to get ready for a trip to Yosemite. Waterfalls were great and was steep enough to get the heart rate up! Definitely recommended

So lovely in the winter! Because there’s so much water on the falls trail, some parts are a bit icy. Wear good boots and tread carefully!

Fantastic winter hike. Lots of icicles making the falls even more beautiful than you can imagine.

Awesome trail hiked it today in the snow absolutely beautiful gotta hit it when there ain’t many ppl their cause it gets full

Just hiked the falls today for the first time! DEF wear hiking footwear! I loved it!

Definitely one of the best hikes I've ever done. Falls were amazing and scrambling up the rocks was a lot of fun.

AMAZING wish I lived closer. The falls are beautiful. Scrambling is a little tough but I was able to do it with my dog on a lead. Highly recommend.

Solid hike! I did this loop in about 3 hours, we took our time looking at the falls/outlooks. The waterfalls are quite steep and can be slippery, hiking shoes are best. I would not suggest going down on the falls side! Some parts of the trail are not well marked, so pay close attention once you get to the top of the falls.

Never Gets Old. Did the short loop this time out to the over looks and back down to trail down.
Trail over to Overlook isn’t marked very well..if it’s snow covered you’re lost if u don’t have this app..

Wow! Stunning yellows here right now. The falls are gorgeous, pictures don't do it justice. I'm so glad I took th loop clockwise like someone on this app suggested. It would have been much more difficult coming down on the falls side. I wouldn't suggest doing this in the rain as wet rock scrambling here could be dangerous. The overlook was awesome, don't miss this trail!

This was a fantastic hike. Very Scenic and very challenging. Highly recommended. if I were to do it again I would not take the back half of the loop though. Much better to stay along the falls and out along the ridge of the Gorge.

Not on a rainy day.

A great hike. I’ve waited a while to actually do this one because I always hear it’s just littered with people. Today it was pretty secluded and weather was good, plus we were in area. There are a lot of signs stating you’re going to die so there’s that. I 100% recommend a clockwise hike, starting with the falls trail first and coming down the steep side last. One thing I’ll point out, if you’re wearing the right gear and you don’t stand near the cliffs of the water falls and use good judgment, you’re not going to have a bad day. I can see why people get in trouble there, but they’re probably not experienced hikers. There are harder spots on the AT for sure.

This is a difficult hike up the falls, especially if it has rained the day before. Absolutely gorgeous falls as it has been a rainy summer. Plenty of places to get in trouble but well worth it. Go to the left trail loop to start as it is the most difficult. Enjoy!
