Beautiful, mind-blowing, a feast for the eyes, unique and serene. One waterfall after the other tumbling down - awesome display of nature at this wonderful spot. A good work-out if you do all the climbs down and then up again but surely worthwhile.

Perfecr hike. Trails are outlined so you know what you are getting into. Cost is reasonable too. Love the walkways over under and around the many waterfalls.

Great place to visit anytime. Enjoyed the turning leaves and the brisk cool temps. Good walking trails, but many stairs to handle to complete three out of the four trails. It magnifies Pennsylvania beauty anytime of the year.

Pretty falls, and beautiful foliage. But be careful if you want to use the restrooms after entering. Although you have a ticket and the trail map they hand you, it's not enough to exit and re-enter from the bathrooms. An actual receipt is necessary in...More

Pretty setting. Must pay to get in but was enjoyable. Great photo opps. Walking can be narrow in steps and you must pace yourself if not totally fit. We deterred to see it and was not disappointed!!
