Dogs (leashed)

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 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, so 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 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 and it's free!

Regardless, thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!
