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.

We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account.
