Located along Coxton Road, north of Pittston, is one of the areas most scenic falls. Known as Falling Springs, or Falling Springs Falls, it features a creek that tumbles over a large cliff, about 40-50 feet tall. The falls are a short distance from the road, but parking is very limited.
I’ve never seen the falls posted as private property. A short trail from the road leads to the base of the falls. There is some graffiti. The falls are unique in that they plummet in a straight column, as compared to fanning out over a cascade. The setting is impressive.
A trail to the left, if looking at the falls, leads to the top. A short scramble in between a ledge is required. The top features a broad cliff with views of the river and surrounding mountains. Be careful along the cliff as a fall would be deadly. No trespassing signs begin above the falls.
Falling Springs is nice spot for a quick reprieve to enjoy some natural beauty. The falls are below the famous Campbells Ledge.
