Upper Rock Run Falls at the McIntyre Wild Area near McIntyre Township,
Pennsylvania is a moderate 0.2-mile out-and-back trail that leads to the
beautiful 10-foot tall rockslide waterfall, Upper Rock Run Falls.
The trail begins by following a fairly steep hillside down to a fishing game commission A-frame cabin. From here, the trail becomes flat as it makes its way out to Upper Rock Run Falls, which is only about 200-feet from the cabin.
At the waterfall, hikers will find several rock ledges above Rock Run, so hiking further downstream may have opportunities for climbing or bouldering above the creek. The waterfall itself is a beautiful cascade, approximately 10-feet tall, that spills into a pool of green-ish blue water below.
Dogs area allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.
Hikers will find a large parking lot at the coordinates provided - large enough to fit about twelve vehicles.
This is the most popular swimming hole along Rock Run. Expect a crowd on weekends and show up early. For another beautiful rockslide waterfall, check out Middle Rock Run Falls. For a more quiet swimming experience, check out Lower Rock Run Falls.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
