The Falls Trail in Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania is a 0.6 mile out-and-back hike that leads up from Hemlock Hollow Rd up to a 10-foot waterfall that spills into the Stony Camp Run steam.

The trail is mostly all uphill, hence Moderate difficulty, but it's not bad.

Waterfall: Reaching the waterfall, with the best view being at the base of the falls, is not easy. There's a small trail that leads down to the creek and through the gorge, which starts next to the first bench along the trail - just before the staircase that leads uphill. Follow the trail from the bench to a dead end, push past the brush and then then cross fallen trees and the creek itself to reach the base of the waterfall. This section is difficult to navigate, but well worth the payout if you can make it to the base of the falls. For other glimpses of the falls, you can stay on the main trail to get some spotty views of the waterfall from afar. From what I could tell, there might be two tiers to the waterfall and the upper tier is only slightly visible from the main trail.

Dogs are not allowed along this trail.

Found the base of the waterfall on this hike. Followed the creek upstream while crossing a few fallen trees. Very slippery, not an easy hike getting to the base of the falls.

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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
