The 405-acre Salt Springs State Park is in northeastern Pennsylvania, seven miles north of Montrose in Susquehanna County. Focal points of the park are the towering old growth hemlock trees, many estimated to be over 300 years old, and the rocky gorge cut by Fall Brook with its three waterfalls. The Friends of Salt Springs Park, a volunteer support group, owns 300 acres adjacent to the parks southern border, which is also open for public access.

Lots of neat things to see on this trail! I’ve hiked it a few times and would love to go back again

very nice hike

great trail,easy hiking for the experienced hiker

Wouldn't rate this moderate. It is neat you actually hike up the side of the falls to get to the next tier (great experience) but at times you have to climb up a sheer dirt wall grabbing rocks and roots to help you up, but these falls are worth the climb. Took the red (falls trail) out to the blue (wet land) which ran into the blue (gorge trail). Beautiful day and great and challenging hike love these kinds.

Awesome hiking up the falls!!

I hiked this trail on Saturday. I did the trails in this order: Hemlock, Hardwood, Friends, Summit, Cliff, Bunny, Fall Brook, Gorge. For the most part, the trail was well marked. The friends trail has sections walking through tall grass that you have to assume you're going in the right direction. As long as you stay fairly straight, the markers will pick back up. There are a few fallen trees, so it could be easy to get off trail if you're not careful when going around them. It took my 6 month old puppy and I about 2.5-3 hours to do 5.5 miles, stopping for pictures and to play in the water. Nice trail close to home!

I love this trail! I walked on it just this morning for the first time with my pup and it was a great time. I can't wait to explore even more of it. The only issue I had with it is that it was quiet muddy. But that's to be expected after rain. :)

Nice little gem, was snow on ground when were were here so we only went up left side trail up till road then cut over and back down other side but it was well worth it. Very scenic, and you really feel immersed in nature here, especially where the 2 streams come together. Was a little cairn garden there when I visited and was very tranquil. Nothing bad to say i just didn't get to explore it all so I can't give it the full 5 rating but the shitters were nice for the flushless type, hate to smell them in the summer.

We love Salt Springs. We enjoy the hike, the falls, wildlife, and the museum. We plan on going to some of the activities they have and camping as well.

This is one of our favorite parks. It's close to home for us so we go often when we want a walk in the woods but don't have time to travel too far afield. We've walked all the trails in the park but always enjoy our time there.

This was the second time my family and I visited. Both times we came with my sister and her husband. This time we drove to the top and walked down then back up. It is a very nice walk but it can be vigorous at times. Beautiful scenery and it was a gorgeous summer day. My guys had fun skimming stones above the water falls. I highly recommend it. They have a campground there also.

Beautiful area with the bright Spring sunshine making everything sparkle. Trails are well laid out and marked, although not highly groomed, which is to my taste but not everyones. It's hilly enough to get your heart moving but rarely at a steep incline. The water falls are worth spending some time listening to. The old hemlocks are towering! Fair amount of oak, maple and birch in their as well. Looking forward to coming back in summer and fall to see what the area looks like decked in more greenery and color.
