I went here just by accident, passing by on my way to Falling Waters. Turned around and checked it out, truly a hidden jem. Trails are quiet and peaceful, well maintained and posted very well. Great place for a quick hike.

This is a really great reserve. The trails are well marked and there are several to choose from of varying lengths. The grounds are obviously well maintained. In over an hour's time, we saw only one other couple.

Beautiful just can't describe the trails. A little drizzle never bothered us and we all enjoyed the day.

Fallingwater is part of the Bear Run Nature Reserve. Across the highway from the entrance to Fallingwater and about a quarter of a mile North on 381, you'll find the offices of the Bear Run Nature Reserve.
