Pigeon Falls, Allegheny National Forest, Marienville, PA, Forest County

Today we visit the beautiful Pigeon Falls in the Allegheny National Forest, on Spring Creek in Marienville, PA. It is located deep in the woods off of a small gravel road. The coordinates to the falls are 41.4697, -78.9604 and the hike is maybe a half a mile, tops, through some beautiful lichen covered boulders, beautiful woods, and habitats of wildlife. As I approached the falls, I spooked a white-tailed deer that hopped back into the woods after snagging a drink from the creek. This is a beautifully serene set of falls that is relatively untouched, lying pretty deep in the woods.

Beautiful lichen covered boulders
The first sight you see as you descend into the valley.
These falls are no more than 20 feet tall, but they are really beautiful. A great place to just sit and relax for a while. Very serene and deep in the middle of nowhere.
Gotta slow it down a little bit!
The tiers on this set of falls make this especially beautiful. The way this creek maneuvers through this rugged terrain make this set of falls very neat. The maneuvers of the other regional falls, including the spectacular Hector Run Falls, take unique pathways through the terrain as well.


I highly recommend visiting this stunning little set of waterfalls. There are a ton of points of natural interest that are located within a short distance of these falls, including the aforementioned Hector Run Falls, Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir, Cook Forest, Kinzua Bridge and Elk Country, and more.
