Rock Run is a place that I would not turn down a chance to explore again and again.

Rock Run is a place that I would not turn down a chance to explore again and again. It is easy to get lost in your own thoughts reflecting on the beauty of the surroundings, swim in the always chilled waters, or get out your fishing pole and catch some trout during the season.

After making your way into Ralston, PA cross over Lycoming Creek on Thomas Street and follow it as it turns into Rock Run Road. After a little drive (one mile), you will eventually reach Miners Falls on your left, which is only the beginning of the awesome display. It is a convenient place to park,and a great spot to start exploring the most beautiful stream in the Loyalsock State Forest.

There are three falls (upper, middle, and lower) that fill crystal clear pools of water. They are a bit hard to get to, because of a steep walk on some slippery rock. When you get to the pools and finally jump in... All I can say, no matter how hot it is in the summer, the water will chill you to the bone.

Take your time and explore the area because there is so much to see along the way. There are no trails around the Stream and the surrounding rock is slippery, always be cautious of the depth of water you are jumping into, and keep a look out for the occasional snake. Camping is not permitted in this area.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Rock Run is definitely a great spot to explore, there are several small tributaries to Rock Run that are interesting to hike. If you are in the area, it is a worth while spot to check out.
