Glen Onoko Falls

Today was a beautiful sunny day for a hike at Glen Onoko Falls in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. The Falls Trail is a steep, rocky climb along a beautiful series of cascading waterfalls.

The stream tumbles over boulders.

The mist is refreshing on a hot day.

The vista is beautiful from the top of this waterfall that plunges over the outcropping.

Drops of water like strands of gems

After hiking to the top of the falls, we hiked on top of the plateau to see this gorgeous view of the river below. We saw people biking on the path and rafting in the river. Of course, they looked like tiny ants from this vantage point.

Your pictures just made me want to be there! I felt like throwing my pack, hiking staff, and boots into the card and heading to Glen Onoko! I love all of them but especially the one of the vista from the top of the waterfall. Happy hiking, Anne! Art

Glen Onoko can be dangerous. Parts of the trail can be slippery and on the loose shale it's easy to lose your footing. I would say it's more difficult to hike than Rickett's Glen because of the scrambling and loose shale. Many people hike it, and I'm risk averse and I go there! But, yes, it requires some careful stepping. If you go, make sure you have proper footwear.
