Very nice falls and swimming area. Relatively short and easy hike to falls. We took the longer path for ease. Pretty busy place.

We hiked down to the bottom of the falls. Very manageable hike, even for those of us who are clearly out of shape. A pleasant afternoon activity.

With the humidity, it smelled and felt nothing short of a jungle. The squaking of the birds echoed through the forest and the azaleas lining the trail filled the air with their honey sweet perfume. We found a few small waterfalls and streams off the...More

In about 20min you reach the falls and if you're feeling a bit adventurous, you can hop the rocks and put your feet in the water too. Part of the path gets a bit muddy (AllTrails says the entire path is a loop) but we...More

Nice little stroll, not difficult. If your thinking of driving more than 15 mins to see it, you might be disappointed.

Path to upper view point is fairly easy but overlook is not well marked. Path to lower viewpoint was muddy at several spots and iced over at two points but fairly easy except for the climb out. Well worth the effort.

It was a very nice ending to our weekend getaway at the Poconos. It's a short, 10 minute hike, from the road. The kids enjoyed it. Great photo opportunity.

I always took my grandchildren over to the Falls to swim and it's a nice hike into the falls. They now have a small bridge across the creek.

This is a really nice water fall. Worth the short hike to it. Plenty of beautiful rock formations along the way. You can access the falls from a few spots. We climbed some rocks and got closer. Ample parking when we visited. Not crowded either....More

Yes it is free but can be difficult to find it b/c there is not a big sign and its before you get to the main entrance of the state park.
