Reviews

The Wadsworth Falls area is awesome! You can either park right at the fall or or take the easy hike and if you don't like being too isolated in nature, it feels like half in the middle of nowhere and in a neighborhood because of the houses in the area. Great for camping and picnics with plenty of other places to adventure in the area!

You can make this a very short hike by literally pulling up to the Falls and walking 1 min to see it and photograph it but there are hiking trails in the state park if you want to make an excursion out of it. The view is great - I went in the winter and noticed an interesting smell though from the water.
