Dean on Ricketts Glen State Park waterfall hike

Maiden Voyage: Waterfall Hike

We came to Ricketts Glen specifically to do the hike past 18 named waterfalls and numerous small drops and cascades. It is steep, rocky, there are a lot of stairs, and it’s glorious!

A yearling bear ran across the trail in front of us at the beginning of the hike so Dean set his bear bell loose to ring. We took our hiking poles and were glad of it.

We concluded the evening with a drive to buy firewood, a shower, more laundry, and dinner by the fire.
