Cold Run Trail is a 1.5 mile extension of the Canyon Vista Trail. Access to the Cold Run Trail is from the new Canyon Vista Trailhead on PA 154, east of the park’s campground. Follow the Canyon Vista Trail clockwise .7 of a mile climbing the mountain to the signed lower trailhead of the Cold Run Trail. The blazes of Cold Run Trail are yellow. The Cold Run Trail continues the climb easing off as it merges with an old lumber road. The road gently weaves through the forest leading the trail to the Cold Run Vista. The view is eastward looking up the Loyalsock Creek valley and PA 154. The trail enters a downhill “serpentine” after which it begins its ascent of the Cold Run watershed. Sacagawea and Tendoy waterfalls, as well as a few smaller ones, are viewed as the trail parallels the stream. The trail crosses the west branch of Cold Run just below Tecumseh Falls. Continuing to climb the trail passes Aliquippa Falls just before it crosses the main branch of Cold Run. The trail once again passes Aliquippa Falls before ascending Aliquippa Rock which offers a view of Cold Run Falls. Leaving the rock the trail climbs, crosses the east branch of Cold Run, then levels off at .9 of a mile in a hemlock grove. The trail reaches the main branch of Cold Run, follows it downstream, crosses the stream, then arrives at Cold Run Falls. The trail turns away from the falls into a beech forest. Shortly the trail begins a descent of the west branch of Cold Run along various small cascades. The trail crosses the stream, twists through some rocks, follows a skid road before joining a wider lumber road. After the road levels out the trail veers left, passes Flynn Spring, then begins a climb up the hillside to an escarpment. The trail ventures through the rocks, through crevasses and even under Boulder Arch, a truck size slanted rock. The climb continues until leveling off in a young beech forest. The hike is gentle through the woods until it descends the escarpment then hugs the base of the rock. Another crevasse is encountered utilizing a few rock steps to enter the chasm. After the passage the trail suddenly arrives in a large “room” of ferns surrounded by separate sections of the escarpment. The trail abruptly ends at its upper trailhead intersection with the Canyon Vista Trail. The waterfalls on Cold Run Trail are best viewed during snow melt in the spring or within a few days after a significant rainfall. As with any trail in the winter, ice cleats are strongly recommended. Due to the areas fragile ecology please stay on the trail. Please respect the solitude and be mindful of other hikers.Show more
