Hike to Jacoby Run Falls

Pennsylvania Jacoby Falls Trail

Added by Shawn Grenninger

Take a relaxing hike through the forest that ends at an awesome waterfall.

The trailhead is at a large gravel parking area off of Wallis Run Road. The trail begins on a boardwalk over a wetland that leads into hemlock forest and mixed hardwoods.

The yellow blazed trail follows Jacoby Hollow at a steady slight incline and leads to the 45 foot Jacoby Falls. Best times to visit are spring or after a soaking rain. Visit in the winter to view a frozen Jacoby Falls. Scramble to the top of the falls to explore further and relax at one of the primitive camping spots.

How to Get There

2 months ago

Be prepared.

I went during a time when there hadn't been a lot of precipitation and I wasn't as prepared for the ice as I thought I was, but aesthetically, it was a nice place. The view of the mountains was nice, but there was a lot of "eh" buildup until getting to the waterfall. Worth the walk though.

great for everyone

The this a great trail to just get out and enjoy the woods and to introduce littler ones to hiking. Winter is an awesome time to go.

Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania exploring the beautiful outdoors by foot and kayak and spending the nights under the stars. I'm typically planning my next adventure before the current one ends and of course enjoy a good beer in the process.
