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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
