Just had my first visit to this place, and well, it definitely will not be my last!
Called one of the top hikes of the east, it’s a lovely mélange of large and small waterfalls, each with its own character, in woods with trees over 300 years old. Colonel R. Bruce Ricketts named the falls after American Indian tribes, and some after friends and family.
I was lucky to enjoy this trip meeting an online friend in person for the first time. Not only does she know the Glen well, she very patiently sat while I did a quick sketch or two. Thank you Elizabeth! I hope to return soon!
I wonder how old this tree was, when it gave up and laid across the stream. The swirls in the bark and uneven protrusions give it such character.
Adams Falls are the easiest falls to get to, and a short distance from the road. Just stunning! I could’ve sat here and enjoyed it all day.
It was a decent Sunday, so I thought I’d try a Pennsylvania hike for a change. Not – a rocky one like Hawk Mtn – but something different. The AllTrails app lists a 5 mile hike on East Shore trail, Eagle Pass and Cliff Trail at Prompton State Park as ‘moderate’. Only an hour away, so off I went.
The joy of autumn 🍂 hiking! Crisp leaves crunched underfoot, frightening a flock of turkeys as I approached. The well worn path was hidden beneath the colorful carpet. This caused me to retrace my steps a couple times to return to the marked trail.
So happy to enjoy the lovely colors and feel of autumn!
Love old stone walls!
Heading downhill, these stone ledges concerned me at first, but looking back at them, I can see how they are terraced, making it an easy drop!
