Waterfall Hike

Please join us at the Fire Tower Parking Lot for a    challenging 2.5mile hike to the park’s only waterfall.  The 1878 Caldwell’s Atlas of Clarion County lists a mill located near the terminus of Alsbaugh Run and the Clarion River.  Remnants of this mill dam can be observed today as a waterfall.  Along the hike we will be dropping a total of 440 vertical feet to experience a lightly travelled section of River Trail along the banks of the beautiful Clarion River, to one of our most asked about and seldom experienced attributes of the park.  Remember to bring plenty of water and a snack.  We have to go back up 440 vertical feet to get back to our cars! 


* Until further notice - Due to COVID-19 restrictions all park programs are limited to 25 participants, mask must be on person, social distancing in effect.  All participants must register at the Park Office at (814)744-8407 or cookforestsp@pa.gov.
