The waterfall is not on the AllTrails marked trail, but slightly further upstream of it.

We walked up by the falls and into the wooded area across from the falls. It’s very beautiful down buy the river

The directions were very confusing. I eventually figured out that the parking lot is shared with an assistant living facility. The name of the park is Amherst State Park, I never saw a “Glen Park” sign. The loop was short but I enjoyed the scenery and nature. My 7 year old loved the water.

I followed the directions from the app and it took me to Amherst Memorial Park. After walking around in the woods on a barely visible ice path, I used my GPS to the actual park. The waterfall is visible from the street. I walked up to the waterfall and was able to take a path that goes higher than the waterfall for awesome views. Other than the houses in the background, this waterfall is beautiful!

beautiful place but def not a biking area like it states above, no biking is allowed on most parts and the part that does look like a bike path lasts about a quarter mile and then ends abruptly. and I believe all animals should be allowed in any outdoor area since it technically it was theres first so there no pets allowed rule is rediculous.
