The Mid-Falls Trail at Boyce Mayview Park in Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back trail that leads to a 10-foot tall waterfall named Upper St. Clair Falls or Mid-Falls.

Hike Description
This very short trail follows both the bank of a creek and crosses the creek to reach a 10-foot tall waterfall that cascades down a small shale gorge. The trail is not difficult, but hikers may need to get their feet wet if the water is rushing during very early Spring or after a heavy rainfall. We tracked this trail during mid-to-late late April 2021 and unfortunately the waterfall was mostly dried up with just enough water falling to make the hike worth it, so hikers should show up earlier in the Spring to enjoy it.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time, money, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes, so we 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 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 and it's free!

Regardless, thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!
