PLEASE NOTE: Trail has recently been reported as closed as recent as September 2018. This is a beautiful little glen tucked in behind a small campground that is a hidden gem. Pay the $2 to park and stay to the left past the campgrounds until the road dead ends at the trailhead parking lot. It is an easy walk back to the falls with only a set of rigid steel stairs to climb. At the top of these steps the trail bend slightly to the left and from there you'll see the glen and the falls. Eagle Cliff Falls spills into the glen and is very photogenic. This is a great place for campers to cool off in the hot summer months. You won't get much hiking in, but you'll take a lot of pictures. Please note trail is only open from mid-May through mid-October.

FYI currently closed due to flooding and washouts. Will they again next time.

A nice quick walk to a waterfall. Would be a great stop on a hot day of hiking. Saved $2 by parking just outside the park and walking in.

The falls were beautiful. It was not too crowded. You have to pay $2.00 to park, not bad considering people leave trash wherever they want

I have hiked over 200 waterfall locations. This is my favorite

It was nice but not really conducive to bringing dogs...there is a set of metal grate stairs that even mybig dog couldn't handle because the grates were too wide for her paws. The waterfall was nice though.

$2.00 to park. The app brings you up the road . Just park in the park. Small but powerful and beautiful.

A $2 entry fee and a short walk will get you to this beautiful waterfall. So worth it!

Short walk with a pretty waterfall you can walk right up to.

Very easy short walk. Worth the view but not very challenging at all.

I would consider this easy, not moderate, short walk to falls, but pretty, and worth the stop.

Not much to hike but the falls are beautiful. We ended up going up a trail and saw more waterfalls but it's on private property and do not suggest trying it! You can stand behind the waterfall

Small hidden gem not far from Watkins Glen. Short hike close to the gorge walls.

Havana Glen is a must see. I agree with the person who said it is a mini Watkins Glen. You have the high gorge walls and similar geology and a beautiful water fall flowing over a sharp rock ledge into the plunge pool below. The moss and green on the rocks behind the waterfall add to the geology make it great picture taking. The hike is a short and easy hike up a flight of stairs bolted to the cliff and around the bend and you there. I went in the fall which is considered the off season and nobody was there. Had the whole glen and falls to myself.

A mini-Watkins Glen just down the road from the real one. A short railing-lined trail made of rock steps and ledges leads back to the falls. The trail is typically quiet except for on very hot days when locals come for a dip under the falls. A lovely picnic area and playground sit at the base of the falls.
