2007 PA_ Parks Ricketts Glen _Cordoras_2008

This is the first park I have been to where you can take one trail and see 21 waterfalls. The trail called the Falls Trail took us past 21 named waterfalls. It is sometimes very steep and to see all 21 waterfalls it is 3.2 mile loop trail. The layered rock walls covered sometimes with ferns just add to the scenery. Mike went on the do the 20th and 21st while Brian and I hung out at the half way point of the loop which was number 9 H. Wright.

Cordoras State Park nice park for walking around the lake and has a nice built in pool for swimming in the summer.

Another great hike was at the Jucquan Glen Nature Preserve we walked along a trail to the Susquehanna river. Very pretty scenery along the creek to the river. This area of the Susquehanna includes the river trail for birdwatching. We watched Hawks, Eagles and Vultures flying above the river at Pinnacles and Holtwood lookouts.

05/08 Second visit to Ricketts Glen we did see all of the waterfalls 22 or 23 of them. I think I took pictures of most of them.
