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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
