That other waterfall on Falls Run is just as beautiful as Angel Falls.

Gipson Falls is the other waterfall on Falls Run just off the Loyalsock Trail.  There is a parking area for the Loyalsock Trail on Brunnerdale Road just off of Ogdonia Road.  From the parking follow the Loyalsock Trail along the run for about .5 miles, once the Loyalsock Trail turns right and heads uphill, break away from the trail and continue along the run on an unblazed but well worn trail. Once you reach and run coming into Ogdonia Run, turn and follow upstream which is Falls Run, you will see a "No Camping" sign.  

This portion of the hike can be steep and rocky in places, about .3 mile up the run you will get to Gipson Falls.  If you are familiar with Angel Falls, it is just above Gipson, so like Angel, the flow is very seasonal.  It is best to visit in early Spring or after a heavy rain.   

An alternate route to Gipson Falls would be to follow the Loyalsock Trail all the way to the blue blazed trail that leads to Angel Falls and then from Angel Falls, continue downstream to Gipson Falls.
