waterfall

Ricketts Glen harbors Glens Natural Area, a National Natural Landmark. Take the Falls Trail and explore the Glens, which boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside. The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls. Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the scenic area. Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania. This large park is comprised of 13,050 acres in Luzerne, Sullivan and Columbia counties.

Amazing views around every corner. Well maintained.

The leaves were changing, and the water was flowing. Excellent weather. A little crowded, but everyone was patient.

Photographic natural beauty.

A great hike! It is fairly narrow at points with a lot of people so it can slow you down. Wear boots! The rocks and steps can get slippery. We did the entire loop from Rte. 118, worth the extra miles. We took a left where the trails meet and went up the left side of the falls. Although it is steeper, I thought this was better than going up the right so we didn't have to traverse down the slippery rocks. It makes the Glenoga falls (94') even better when you see it first from the bottom.

Took my 5 year old daughter, boyfriend and dog and we all loved it. I love how you can go off the trail and get closer to the falls. It was a perfect length and not as difficult as I thought. A must place to go!

This was a great hike with the wife and pup. Challenging but not impossible, incredible sights and views.

first timer today, definitely one of the best hikes I've found. Rocks can be slippery in sections, also very crowded.
