First thing is they do not have good signs to show you where to turn off the main road . when you turn right into this place go to the second parking lot then walk back the paved walkway once you reach the walking bridge you can go left before the bridge or go right after the bridge We enjoyed...

I really love going to this area. It is a wonderful county park, about 20 minutes from downtown Wilkes-Barre. There are natural tubs, that flow into each other! There are also trails for hiking, that are marked off! Easy to enter a stream, adjacent to the tub area. It is a free park with plenty of free parking. Since there... More

I was in the Wilkes-Barre area and read about this local park. I decided to check it out. It is a very scenic and natural area. Running water cascades down a rock ravine and several pools have formed in the rocks. There are trails to walk and one is very rugged and hilly. There was another trail to the right... More

The tubs is a nice walk in the woods along the woodland stream. Very interesting formations through the rocks. I imagine in the stream when the water is higher they would be very impressive. However, the county and the state park commissions need to get their act together. Very little signage on sr 115 alerting cars where to turn. Then,... More

Made a stop here with my 8 and 6 year old and my husband to explore. It was just breathtaking! The stream, to rocks, to trees...just amazing! The different colors of green all around me left me in awe! I got some wonderful family photos that I will cherish as favorites. Wish there was a larger sign to help us... More

Hiked the river and falls on a recent rip. Beautiful scenery with the only downside being trash - it was empty when I was there, but clearly had been popular earlier in the day. Not exactly what you want to see on a nature hike.

It was amazing. Didn't have to walk to far to see the seven tubs. The water was so clear and cold. Great place for pictures and hiking. The hills were a bit steep, but there was some flatter trails. Overall it was breathtaking.

As a moderately experienced hiker, I can say that this area is one of my absolute favorites. It's a very easy walk, with beautiful waterways & rock formations. The creek is surrounded by well-blazed trails, with many partially-blazed areas to go explore. There are numerous private nooks & perches in which to enjoy some peaceful solitude. Be aware: It could... More
