Ricketts Glen water falls

Two meandering streams drop dozens of feet, suddenly here, and there, finally joining together to drop over three more water falls. The two sides of the triangle in Ricketts Glen State Park in central PA provide an up close view of 19 of nature's wonders.

If you are ever in the area, this is well worth a side trip. A hike around the triangle covers about three miles and is not overly strenuous. Stopping to admire the vegetation and the water falls provides enough rest and sustenance to make the hike easily.


  1. That is so cool! Ricketts Glen is about 3 miles away from the camp where I went for vacation two weeks ago. I used to take kids there as a camp counselor all the time.

    You're right, it IS gorgeous, and the falls are magnificent. Pennsylvania has some hidden gems and this is definitely a must-see.
