Buttermilk Falls



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.
