Please see the park page for updates and contact the park staff with any questions: https://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/FindAPark/LehighGorgeStatePark/Pages/default.aspx This is a dangerous and difficult hike requiring scrambling, but it has great views of the falls. Proper hiking shoes and gear recommended. The route can be confusing so make sure to bring the app or downloaded map. There's about 15 mins of an incline on stairs - great cardio session. You can still make the loop through the overlook trail. You can also make a short loop from parking lot to overlook to shortcut trail.Show more
