Fun hike, I done it a few times. Spring much better than summer. Summer time falls lacks water.

This trail should NOT be used anymore!! I attempted to use it yesterday and was threatened by someone who claimed to be a land owner. I was told I was trespassing and he'll call the cops on me like he does with everyone else.

This trail was a nice quick hike before work and the waterfall was really pretty. Halfway down the hike however, there's a frac road that cuts into the trail and runs the rest of the length of the trail. you can choose to walk the frac road or hop back on the trail for the rest of the hike.

Loved this trail, it was my third time. A head up, early springtime is the best to go and see the falls when they are running. Especially after a good rain. Loved the view at the end, well worth the trip.

Nice trail. blazed well. I'd rate it as easy the first half and moderate the 2nd half. pipeline now runs next to portion of the trail so that stinks but beautiful waterfall. keep very close eye on kids if you take them. once your near the falls it gets rocky

Easy trail. Good for families. Beautiful waterfall at the end. Will probably go again later in the season when there’s more water though. The trail was probably once secluded but they’re putting in a pipeline or something and a good portion of the trail runs right next to the construction and dirt road. Kind of a bummer.

Fun easy hike. Logging road threw me off a little. Can’t wait to come back in the summer when the waterfall is more full. Great hike for dogs.

I don't think this is a public access trail anymore. I was rudely warned off continuing along the trail. there are houses and garbage all over.

Wonderful in the winter. It's like walking through a winter wonderland. Completely accessible after a snowfall unlike some other trails in PA. We were some of the only hikers! Safely get as close as you can to the waterfalls it's miraculous.

It really is a nice trail and the waterfall at the end is worth every step. However the construction road and traffic on said road ruin the hike a little. If not for the road it would be rated 5 stars. You'll run into it about half way back. Some of the trail has even been taken over by the road, it's kind of a shame. Still worth hiking though and was very easy! I will be back later in the winter for some icy waterfall pictures!

Great Hike!! We went late fall and the waterfall was absolutely beautiful! Easy to hike and few challenges but nothing extreme!

nice easy trail with a waterfall what you can stand under. Trail follows a creek to the fall. There is a flat spot on top of the falls to have a nice lunch.

bridge from the south is out. have to approach from the north for now

I didn't exactly hike this exact route. We took the left fork and ended up on the black forest trail, connected to Grady road and ended not far on 44 from the pull off for BlackBerry. The left fork took us down the mountain on a pretty steep trail with a small boulder pile to traverse down. Once at the bottom we followed black forest across the stream, quite a few times, till we hit Grady all at a relatively slow incline. it was a more difficult 6 miles but still a really nice hike with a great view and forest scenery.

8.17.17 - Bridge is out that leads to the trailhead. Detour is difficult to follow and totally out of the way. Skip this until the road is open again.

Kind of the same thing the entire way, no views. But its out there. Lots of bugs, recommend pants. Easy trail like it states, not very much elevation gain or loss at all.

Not sure if I found the right spot. all the views were off-road driving views. found a trail near a sign that said Vista #1. there were 3 of those signs down the road. at Vista #1 there is a trail off to the left hand side. Yellow blazes, not sure if this was the trail or not. GPS takes you further down the road than you need to go. but if you follow the road all the way out there is a nice view there as well. Near Sproul state forest. pretty sure it is Sproul, but alltrails says it's not. Easy hike following the markings tho. leads into the MST

This was a great trail! Nice for kids and those who may not hike often. A couple of nice patches of ripe wild blueberries made for tasty treat. Also a couple of nice vistas too. Would be a great trail in the fall while the leaves are changing. I would suggest wearing pants this time of year as a couple of sections had high weeds we had to go through. All in all, very nice afternoon getaway.

I love this trail of you just want to get out. Very easy and well maintained. Had 3 young boys with me on a trek and they loved it. They only thing I will say, if your looking for nice falls, go in the spring. Or go when there has been rain. I've gone times where there has been no water coming over the ledge.

The trail was quite easy. It was very buggy. The waterfall was nice but probably nicer in the spring

I took my two year old in a pack on this hike. A bit slippery with rocks and roots. Trail is well marked, but fairly overgrown in spots. Had to jump from rock to rock in a few areas where the best route is next to the creek instead of the trail. Bring bug spray and a camera! Falls were great (mid-June). Saw some deer and newts.

Nice, quiet hike with a pretty decent waterfall at the end. Only saw one couple the whole time. Great if you only have part of a day, or there is plenty of exploring to do if you scramble up the side of the falls if you'd like to stay longer. The road was still closed from a storm last October, was easy to reroute, though.

can't find the trail. it's all posted.

Due to recent flooding (or maybe because it is spring), start of the trail is loaded with tierces and streams, it is very wet. Good thing - you can pass this part by jumping from rock to rock to root, feels like someone had made a pathway from rocks :) Rubber boots would be recomended. Or just grab a stick to balance through. Further on and closer to Jacoby Fall trail gets more rocky. At some point trail moves to road and over small meadow (beware of blackberry and kind of wild rose thorns! got one in my leg and another almost hit my cheek, :D). At the end falls are full and beautiful.

Met only 1 couple when heading back. Almost no birds and no other animals. Beware of ticks.

Road from Williamsport side (State Route 1003) was closed due to road slide, so had to take detour of 15-20 km. It is easy to locate start of the trail and there is a place to park the car.

Total route took us close to 2 hours (yep, we are slow, because we come from flat and non-rocky land, :D), 5.8km and 135 total ascent (Garmin Fēnix).
