The Little Falls Trail at Boyce Mayview Park in Upper Saint Clair, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.2-mile one-way trail that features several very small seasonal waterfalls.

Hike Description
This hike begins at the western trailhead for the Little Falls Trail and heads through the ravine and over to two creeks that converge into one. Hikers, if looking for the waterfalls in these creeks, will want to show up in the very early Spring right after a heavy rainfall to see these waterfalls in action. The waterfalls here are no larger than 3-feet tall with the majority of the cascades being between 1 - 3 feet tall. For a much nicer waterfall hike to a 10-foot tall waterfall, check out the Mid-Falls Trail at the park.

This trail has several very small seasonal waterfalls that are between 1 and 3 feet tall. They're more like creek cascades, than waterfalls but hikers will need to show up in the very early Spring to see these creeks flowing as they were mostly dried up by mid-to-late April in 2021.

Dogs are allowed on this trail; however they are not allowed on the Hidden Pond Trail which this trail connects to on the eastern terminus.

Biking is not allowed along this trail.

Hikers will find parking at the coordinates provided along Birds Meadow Drive, right off of Boyce Road in Upper St. Clair. The parking lot is large enough to fit about a dozen vehicles.

During the Spring (approx. mid-April) this trail usually has some nice wildflowers like Trout Lily and Trillium.

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! ✌
