Trail Description:

The three-tiered Raymondskill Falls is the tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania. If you add the height of each cascade together, the waterfall is only a few feet shorter than Niagara Falls. While the trail is short, it is fairly steep and uneven. The upper viewing area provides a view of the upper pool and its large cascade. The lower viewing area provides a great photo opportunity of the falls.

A spur off the main trails provides a quarter-mile, one-way walk to Raymondskill Creek. This trail spur is open from Fall to Spring, and does not lead to the bottom of the falls.

New for 2022! Raymondskill Falls Hiker Shuttle Information:
