Trail Information



Length: 0.3 mile, one-way

Difficulty: Easy-moderate

Elevation Change: 178 feet

Trailhead Location: directions to Raymondskill Road trailhead

Restrictions: Swimming and wading are not permitted within 50 feet upstream of waterfalls or in the waterfalls themselves

The three-tiered Raymondskill Falls is the tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania. If you add the drops from each tier 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 the top of one of the drops. 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 does not lead to the bottom of the falls).

Other Information: Restroom located at trailhead
