Water Source

Little Slate Run Falls at Tioga State Forest in Elk Township, Pennsylvania is an easy and less than 0.1-mile out-and-back hike to a small 10-foot scenic waterfall - Little Slate Run Falls.

Please note that this is not an established trail, but the distance to the falls is so short that it's worth pushing your way past a few branches to reach the waterfall. Hikers should head upstream along the left side of the Little Slate Run creek since this way is flatter and does not require you to cross the creek.

It does not take long to reach the base of the falls. Hikers will find Little Slate Run Falls has multiple small cascades that trickle their way down the creek's rocks, but the first free-fall cascade is only a few feet tall. Regardless, this waterfall is a hidden scenic gem along the road in Tioga State Forest.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided in the turnout area along the side of the road.
