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.

Easy 2.5 hour hike, took my two children 8 & 9 years old along, they accomplished this trail without difficulty. Lots of nice scenery with water falls.

Beautiful loop, lots of waterfalls and old growth trees. Great for a day hike and a picnic.

A very difficult moderate trail. Beautiful scenery and sounds the whole way. WEAR PROPER FOOTWEAR!

this is not moderate so beware. worth the trip

Very good path with dozen of helpful marks; no need navigation or map. Forest part very easy. Must see waterfalls. There are a lot of waterfalls. Pics cant show how amazing they are. My favorite is Huron. Doesn't matter which way you go: clockwise or not. It will be lots of steps up. One more, rain will be a problem for this trail: mud and slippery steps could be dangerous.

Definitely bring a camera.
My friend and I decided to make a day out of this trail; It was definitely a treat. We both brought our SLRs and made a field day out of all the waterfalls. I would definitely bring some decent footwear. We went up on a day that didnt follow much rainfall and portions of the trail where still slick from the water flow. I do have to mention that my friend managed in some well traveled new balance sneakers; albeit with a slip or two but he came out fine. The trail seems well managed, with essential stairs and well placed stones. Really not that difficult to become lost either, even with a lack of trail blazers. I would definitely recommend, and cant wait to return.

Awesome walk! So many unique falls! Lots of photo opportunities. Was on my bucket list for awhile. Wear good shoes as there is plenty of mud and slippery rocks.

Fun trail! Go early because it gets extremely crowded (which can be a challenge on some of the narrow, slick stone steps). Will definitely be back!
