Water Source

Springfield Falls at the State Game Lands 284 in Mercer, Pennsylvania is a difficult 0.1 mile out-and-back hike that leads down to the base of Springfield Falls.

This waterfall is also known as Leesburg Falls and is 40 feet wide and 20 feet tall. The waterfall runs best after consistent rainfalls or heavier rainfalls, and during the Spring.

The trailhead can be found across the street from a small parking lot. Just after you enter the trail, you'll find a set of boulders which sit at the top of the falls. You can get a decent view of the falls from the right-hand side of these boulders if you don't want to hike down to the base of the falls.

If you plan to hike to the base of the falls, continue past the view point on the right of the boulders and look for a very steep tree-root trail that leads down to the creek. This trail is often slippery and muddy since the forest floor is shaded by the tree canopy. Be careful and keep your center of gravity low while trying to make your way down to the creek.

Dogs are allowed, but not recommended that you hike with them down to the creek.

Before you leave...

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!
