Great for those hot summer days! The initial climb can be pretty tricky, and the trail isn’t marked all that well, but this is a Pennsylvania classic!

Love this hike, we do it once or twice a year. More like a climb in parts and a great workout. It is dangerous but keep your head straight and don’t leave the trail and you’ll be fine. Can be strenuous but there are lots of nice waterfalls and rocks where you can stop and rest on on your way up. Bring water! Downside: Can get a bit crowded in the summer.

My favorite hike in the state, despite its bad reputation. Don’t act like an idiot and you’ll be fine. Beautiful falls.

Very scenic but difficult trail. You actually trek through the stream a few times as you climb this mountain.

Amazin hike!! Started with a hike up a stream that has numerous waterfalls. Great view of the waterfalls alongside the trail as u ascend up to the top. Coming back down is easy, once your at the top you follow the trail markers on the trees down the other side of the mountain. Very smooth going down this way. Its pretty dangerous coming back down the same path you would take to go up alongside the waterfalls (Slippery rocks and ice) .

Came in the hopes of seeing the falls frozen and was not disappointed! Trail was pretty slippery but that's to be expected when everything is frozen over and it's snowing. made for some beautiful views. If you can get out before the falls thaw out I highly recommend it. Just bring some Yak Trax or some other type of crampons...they make a world of difference.
