Great hike. Probably the best waterfall in Pennsylvania. My neice and nephew(7 and 11) made this trek easily. It was great for the adults and children, lots to see.

Tried to hiked this trail last week but the one bridge was washed off at the original trail head at the cucumber picnic area. I updated the trail map on here and moved the trail head to cucumber falls. That the best parking and entrance I found. the trail markers are few and far between. Look for the dark green blaze on the trees. You can park at the cucumber falls parking area then walk down until you see a metal grate bridge and go left over the bridge and then right onto the trail. The trail was very muddy today but thats because we have been getting hammered with rain the last month. Near the halfway point on the out part of the trail you will see a split. A high road and a low road. The low road takes you to the youth river trail AKA great allegheny passage. The higher pad takes you directly to the great gorge trail. If you follow it all the way to the end it connects to the Kentuck trail. if you do the out and back you will just turn around and come back the same way you came. You will cross over several small streams. You will end back at the cucumber fall parking area. Do yourself a big favor and walk down to the cucumber falls.

Trail was in better condition than Old Mitchell, however we'd received a few inches of rain the day before and it was muddy. The Casades Falls were worth the dirt. I'd definitely go again.
