Start at Awosting Falls and follow the wide and comfortable trail to the Awosting Falls Connector. Cross the main road to the Peter's Kill Park Entrance (and stop for potable water and the restroom if needed). Continue to the right to Bull Wheel trail and then left on to High Peter's Kill. Enjoy the vista before continuing down in elevation to cross Peter's Kill Stream. Then ascend, follow the ridge line, and enjoy periodic vistas. You'll start to hear the falls, and then the noise will fade slightly as you near the road. When you get close enough to the road, cut through the brush and out to the road, and then cross the road to the entrance to Awosting Park.
