Shohola Falls


Shohola Falls is perhaps the largest, most impressive, fully immersive, and unforgettable cascading waterfalls we have ever seen. It is located in the town of Shohola, Pennsylvania, in Pike County on scenic Route 6. Shohola Lake empties out into Shohola Creek over Shohola Dam and immediately drops forming Shohola Falls. This huge cascade waterfall is 50 feet tall and 75 feet wide! It is incredible to see, and an absolute must-see if you are in the Poconos or Delaware Water Gap area.


Delightful! Immersive!

Why is this not advertised? Why so secretive? This place is awesome! The best waterfall in the area, and that is saying a lot! It is so immersive, especially when you are able to walk out into the middle of it. The scale of this waterfall is so big, a must-visit if you are in the Pococos!

A Fun One!

I liked that you were able to walk around wherever -- no fences blocking your adventuring. 😉 This was a fun one.

Getting There

Turn off of route 6 onto Brooks road. Keep right once you come to a tee, and you will enter the parking lot. You will see the lake and dam from here. Listen for the sound of the waterfalls downstream and find the trail through the woods and down a set of wooden stairs. The distance from the parking lot to the trail is very short. You will arrive at various levels of cascades. Be careful and enjoy!
