Hike the Falls Trail at Beltzville State Park

Rate this Adventure Pennsylvania Christman Trailhead Parking lot

Added by

Hike through meadows and woods to a shaded waterfall loop with stream crossings and picturesque overlooks.

At the Christman Trailhead, hike a quick, flat 2.5 miles following the yellow trail markers through farm meadows and birch forests to the Falls Trail loop/intersection. Here hike the Falls trail which is a 0.5 mile loop that links back to the 2.5 mile section back to the parking area. Bridges and overlooks make for great views of the creek. I also noticed some small brookies in the stream which I plan on revisiting another time with my fly rod.

Look out for the bird watching blinds are along the meadow sections to see native birds. Trail out and back with time to explore the falls was about 3-4 hours.
