We were in the area and decided to pop by Montour Falls. As we had hoped they were really running and beautiful to see. It's an easy walk to the edge of the falls area and worth a stop if you are nearby.

No hiking required to get to this waterfall! I believe it's 168' tall, so it's not a tiny one. We also enjoyed walking around a few of the nearby streets and seeing some of the homes from the late 1800's.

This waterfall sits in someone's backyard as you drive through town. It's worth a stop when you are visiting Watkins Glenn.

Quick stop, park on the street and walk on up to check out the falls. They were stunning as there has been a lot of rain and the falls are really quite powerful.

We live nearby and these waterfalls have inspired my daughter to be waterfall obsessed. We drove by at every opportunity. These are best in the wet of the spring but they are also lovely when they are partly frozen in the winter.

The park is open dawn til dusk but I didn't see the posting of the hours when the falls is lit, only that it is lit at night.
