Descent

The Lower Rock Run Falls Trail at the McIntyre Wild Area near McIntyre Township, Pennsylvania is a moderate 0.4-mile out-and-back trail that leads to the 2-foot Lower Falls along Rock Run.

This trail heads downhill along a gradual grade before reaching a set of rock stairs. Those rock stairs lead down to Rock Run where hikers can hike downstream. The Lower Falls were not immediately obvious, so we ended up hiking back uphill and across a set of rocks along the trail that lead over to an unmaintained path. This unmaintained path heads downhill closest to the Lower Falls of Rock Run.

The hike back uphill is not the easiest, hence the moderate difficulty.

Lower Rock Run Falls
This short waterfall is only about 2 or 3-feet tall and about 10-feet wide.

Pets
Dogs area allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.

Parking
Hikers will find a small parking lot at the coordinates provided - large enough to fit about four vehicles.

Swimming
This is one of the popular swimming holes along Rock Run, however, not as popular as Middle Rock Run Falls or Upper Rock Run Falls since those slide waterfalls are taller and better suited for rockslide swimming. Swim and hike at your own risk.
