phototreker: Per Roaring Run's Facebook page, the former owner of the property died last year. Now the trail to the waterfalls is posted. It's a shame access can't be grandfathered in, since the public has been going there for years. Hopefully the RRWA can purchase Rattling Run in the future. Until then...

The hike in is very scenic, paralleling Roaring Run. The trail branches where Rattling Run joins Roaring Run. Rattling Run has 3 impressive waterfalls along its course. For the first one, stay on the low trail & rock hop to the falls at N 40 33.773 W 79 31.651. The second & third falls are located up the higher trail.
