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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
