Big Run Falls at Cascade Park in New Castle, Pennsylvania is a small overlook walk to the Big Run Falls lookout point. Big Run Falls is a 20 to 25 foot waterfall located in the center of Cascade Park with a lookout point downstream. There's no way to hike down to the falls itself since the park discourages people swimming in the pool below, so this is less of a trail and more of an overlook.

To make more of a hike out of this trip, you can walk down the road/hill to the creek itself and then hike up along the side of the creek to the base of the falls - this would likely be a 1 mile out-and-back hike including getting down to the creek itself; however, the GPS data provided here just brings you to the overlook area.

History: Cascade Park is a former amusement park that ran from 1897 until the early 1980s. Shortly after its closure, the rides were removed and it was turned into a public space.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
