  • Hiking the Falls Trail at Ricketts Glen

    Ricketts Glen State Park Things to Do

    After reading all the reviews about this trail, I was afraid of how "dangerous" and "difficult" it sounded. But it was a breeze!! Considering how slow you're going and how many times you stop to view and photograph the waterfalls, this trail is not difficult at all. It has some steep stairs built into the trail, and if you're not in the best of...

  • The Old Bulldozer Road Trail

    Ricketts Glen State Park Off The Beaten Path

    This trail is misleading on 2 counts. Looking at the map, you see the trail and then north, where it connects to the Mountain Springs Trail, there is no name. So, I was thinking it was 2.9 miles back to my car. Nooooo...it's 2.9 miles to the Mountain Spring Trail. 2nd, the trail discription is this: "with its unique name, comes quite and elevation...

    Silver Thread Falls is located at the same location as Dingman's Falls. As you walk the boardwalk to Dingman's you come across Silver Thread Falls. The falls cascade 80 feet in a small thread, hence the name. One can't help but notice the cool breeze and mist coming from these beautiful falls. There is a bench for one to sit and enjoy the beauty.
