Hector's Falls -Ludlow Pa.
For some odd reason, there are not many waterfalls in the north western Pa region. Across the state line to the north, in NY there are many, but the area around and in the Allegheny National Forest there just are not many waterfalls to be found. Hector's Falls is one of the few, and one of the nicest to visit. After I was told about it, it took me years to locate. It's fairly well known, but remote enough to be called a "hidden treasure" in the ANF. The best time of year to visit is in the spring when there is a lot of water flowing over it, or after (or during) a rain in the summer. The pic's below are the slowest I've ever seen the falls, but I haven't been there many times and it was always during a real wet period when I would visit the falls. It's a great place to have a lunch or to camp nearby. In the warm weather you can play in the water!
