Here are three photos of waterfalls in Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania.

 

This park boasts 22 named waterfalls, 21 of which are accessible on the 7.2-mile Falls Trail. Most of the waterfalls can be seen from a 3.2-mile loop beginning at the Lake Rose trailhead, instead of the main pariking area on Route 118.

 

Plans to make this area a national park were approved in the 1930s but scrapped with the onset of World War II.
