The Buttermilk Falls Trail at the Buttermilk Falls Natural Area in New Florence, PA, is an easy 0.4 mile loop hike that brings you down to the falls. Buttermilk Falls is the tallest waterfall in western PA at 46 feet tall.

This area was previously owned by Fred McFeely, grandfather of Fred Rogers. There's a lookout area above the waterfall and in 2017 a ramp was built leading down to the base of the falls; however, this recording does not reflect those updates yet.

Dogs are allowed on leash here.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
