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.
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.

My kids and I get up here about once a year to hike the trails and see the waterfalls. We love it. Check out my full review along with some things to look out for.
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.
