Family Friendly Waterfalls right near the parking area with a nicely-blazed trail to explore with relatively good footing. Be cautious at spots closer to the water.

Overview

This relatively short, creekside loop is a must-visit between I-81 and 476, just east of Wilkes-Barre. It visits long sections of both the Lauren Run and Wheelbarrow Run with opportunities to sit by the pools and cascades to enjoy the secluded woods.

Need to Know

Port-a-potties usually present at the parking area. As a relatively popular area, expect to see other visitors, especially during the warmer months.

Description

From the parking area, head across the road (Bear Creek Blvd) and cross the bridge with the first views of some of the falls. On the other side of the bridge, turn right and look for the painted yellow blazes. This loop can be traveled in either direction but this recommended route heads along Laurel Run first in case visitors want to do an out-and-back along this stretch of the creek and skip the southeastern half through the woods.

Visitors can expect a gradual grade along Laurel Run and a fairly steep grade along Wheelbarrow Run.

Flora & Fauna

Painted trillium, mushrooms, blueberries.
