This is a really great reserve. The trails are well marked and there are several to choose from of varying lengths. The grounds are obviously well maintained. In over an hour's time, we saw only one other couple.

Yes. Dogs are permitted. But just as with any forest they should be on a leash since there are other hikers and there are the typical woods hazards of bears and snakes.

Fallingwater is part of the Bear Run Nature Reserve. Across the highway from the entrance to Fallingwater and about a quarter of a mile North on 381, you'll find the offices of the Bear Run Nature Reserve.
