Various beautiful waterfalls. The hike is fairly dangerous but if you wear proper shoes and bring some snacks for yourself you'll be good. Most stop at the flat waterfall but KEEP GOING! You'll eventually wind up at the very top and come onto a rocky dirt road. Follow the road for a mile or so and you'll get the best view in PA. Once you look at it your eyes bug out to adjust because you're so high up it's unbelievable!

Used this site to help guide us -- he did it with a 7 and 3 year old! http://www.eastcoasthiker.com/trails/glenonoko/

We followed the orange spray paint up, and the red spray paint down. Easy for two experienced young adults, even when raining. Wear appropriate foot gear!

Question - can kids do this hike? Very adventurous kids? It is something you can do with hands and feet or you need equipment for (like rock climbing)?

LOVED this trail! Went a week ago and was delighted with waterfalls along the whole hike. It was a good workout up along the falls and then a nice, flatter walk out to form a loop. No wildlife though, not even a bird.

Beautiful trail with numerous gorgeous waterfalls to see, one you can even climb behind. Definitely a difficult hike, so do not attempt without proper gear. Some parts​ you are descending down extremely steep rocks so be prepared for a work out. I highly recommend wearing waterproof boots since you have to cross the water at one point.

It was very scenic and fun to hike on all fours) along the river and various waterfalls. The drive over from NY was definitely worth it.
We hiked up from the parking lot and followed the red trail down from the fire pit, took us about 2.5hrs.
