Descent

Middle Rock Run Falls at the McIntyre Wild Area near McIntyre Township, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back trail that leads to the beautiful 7-foot tall rockslide waterfall, Middle Rock Run Falls.

This unique waterfall has carved a skinny cascade through the bedrock in the middle of Rock Run creek. The trail basically ends at the waterfall, but hikers can head downstream further than this recording to get better photos of the waterfall. There are several rock ledges nearby that boulderers also use for climbing above the pools of water along Rock Run.

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

Parking

Some of the most beautiful blue water you'll ever see in PA (besides Stony Fork Creek)! I've seen lots of fish swimming in the deep pool below the falls here too. I like Middle better than Upper & Lower Falls. Perfect for a summer bday trip, and have also seen with peak Fall foliage, and in snow/ice during Winter.
