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.

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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...
