Nay Aug Falls

Trail Type: Gravel and dirt
Hike Distance: 1 mile round trip
Difficulty: 4
Beauty: 6

Overview:

Nay Aug Falls is unique in the sense that there’s a whole city that was built all around it, yet you’d never know just by looking at pictures. Roaring Brook has cut a deep gorge here with 100-foot cliffs while the city of Scranton exists literally a few yards away.

Directions:

From exit 185 on Interstate 81 in Scranton, travel along the Central Scranton Expressway and follow it as it joins US 11 in downtown Scranton. Turn right onto Mulberry Street and follow it all the way to the park entrance.

Hike Description:

The hike starts at the far end of the parking lot and descends down into the gorge. The trail does split shortly after starting, so head right and make your way to a T-intersection. Turn right and head down the steps toward the gorge. If it has recently rained, this part of the trail will be extremely muddy as you make your way to the viewing platform.
