Winter Waterfall Ice Hiking Adventure at Ricketts Glen State Park.jpg

Winter Waterfall Ice Hiking at Ricketts Glen State Park
Best Winter Adventure in Pennsylvania

$79 - $94

Hike frozen trails, explore stunning natural icy waterfalls and discover spectacular ice formations as you hike through frozen ravines of the majestic Ricketts Glen State Park in Northeast Pennsylvania. 
The Falls Trail that you hike meanders through the Glen's Natural Area, which is a National Natural Monument. The frozen landscape creates glistening ice formations and an       awe-inspiring experience unmatched in both the Endless  & Pocono Mountains Regions.

This trip transports you to a frozen-in-time winter waterfall wonderland. We supply the crampons, ice axe, harness + helmet. The guides set hand-lines to clip you into at certain sections of the trail as we hike on an ice-packed narrow trail system—it is an incredible experience!


 Updates for the 2023-2024 Full Day Ice Hike Trip. 1) update regarding closed trail, 2) new parking / meeting spot and hiking route. 

  • UPDATE 1: The closed section of the Falls Trail is officially open and will not impact the Full Day Ice Hiking trips.

  • UPDATE 2: We've outgrown the parking area where we normally meet. Full Day Ice Hiking trips will now meet at Beach Lot 2 as depicted in the below map. More in depth details are also provided in the booking confirmation email.

    • As a result, this changes the hiking route. Rather than hike in a full loop and start and end at the same location, you'll hike a 4.5 mile clockwise "V" trail (down one ravine and then up another ravine) and get shuttled back to your vehicles at the end of the hike.

    • The first leg of the "V" is 2.8 miles. You begin your descent from Beach Lot 2 with a gentle downhill hike. Once on the Falls Trail, you start descending the Glen Leigh ravine all the way down to Waters Meet.

    • The second leg of the "V" is 1.8 miles.  You hike up the Ganoga Glen ravine all the way back to the maintenance garage parking area. Since the hike ends at a different spot than where it starts, we'll provide a shuttle van to transport you back to your vehicles at Beach Lot 2 (4 minute drive).
