According to one source, this is "the most photographed waterfall in Pennsylvania."
The falls lie about 0.9 mile from the GAP trail in Ohiopyle, about MP 72. Google maps indicates that there is a bike path along the river to this falls on Cucumber Creek. But there is not a bike path. Take the car road.
