The Little-Known Waterfall In Pennsylvania You Can Reach By Hiking This 2.7-Mile Trail
Chasing waterfalls is oh-so-easy and so much fun. Reaching Pennsylvania’s dozens and dozens of waterfalls can be easy, requiring just a simple walk from the car. Or the trek can be challenging, requiring plenty of time and stamina. Little Falls Trail, which leads to a beautiful but little-known waterfall in Pennsylvania, falls somewhere in between a short stroll and a challenging trek. It’s worth checking out if you’ve got an hour or two free.
Little Falls Trail winds 2.7 miles through Promised Land State Park, taking you past an abundance of natural beauty. A few surprises wait along the way, too.
While the trail has earned an "easy" rating from AllTrails, you will face some rocky terrain. Keep an eye out when you're walking for jutted tree roots, too.
Fortunately, the trail is predominately flat, making it easy for hikers of all ages and skill levels. You'll still want to wear comfortable and sturdy shoes.
Cross a picturesque footbridge and along a tree-lined path, which provides an abundance of shade during the hot summer months. Still, bring plenty of water for your journey, no matter when you hike.
You'll pass the cascading water of a dam, perfect for snapping a few photos or sitting down for a breather.
However, the highlight of the trail is undoubtedly the little-known Little Falls waterfall that gently tumbles into a clear pool of water.
During your hike, keep an eye on the sky. You might be lucky enough to spot one of the local bald eagles.
Little critters scurry along the path, too. The trail can get really muddy, so you'll likely want to wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.
