#10566 Cathedral

This waterfall is deep in the woods at Ricketts Glen state park in  northeastern Pennsylvania. It is forty five feet high and empties into a wide round pool that hikers often swim in. If you look carefully, the trail goes across the upper left of the frame on the way down to here.<br />

Ricketts has been called the crown jewel of the Pennsylvania state park system, and the 26 named waterfalls along with old growth timber areas give a good reason why. There are also numerous unnamed falls there too because it's a land of nothing but forest and running water. It is a long and scenic hike and very steep in places, but the trails are very good. You should be in reasonable shape and have good hiking shoes to go there.
