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.

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...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
