Just a few steps from the parking lot takes you to a. Ridge that overlooks the beautiful pools and falls. If you hike up along the edge you get to see even more. Not the best place if you want a long hike - but unique and lovely

Why perfect for me? I love nature but am very fair skinned. I can't handle too much sun/heat. It was a pretty warm day out when my husband and I walked the trail. The beautiful and plentiful trees protected me from the hot sun. I enjoyed stoping occasionally to sit on a big rock in front of the flowing water... More

There is no obvious map posted for the trail, but just follow the sound of rushing water upstream. Takes about 1 or 1.5 hours to make the circuit. Lots of kids around swimming and wading in the pools.

If you can handle the walking, the tubs are so worth it. I would recommend wear swimming shoes, and definitely Do Not recommend this for children under 10, without direct adult supervision. This area is Not life guard monitored, so it's at your own risk, which means you are responsible; be responsible especially around any child. Keep it clean by... More

I've hiked Seven Tubs a few times. It's fairly easy, mostly unkept (i.e. much more "wild" than Hickory Run), and fun. If you go right from the bottom parking lot you can walk miles of an old road and then biking/ATV trails. If you go straight across out of the parking lot (across the bridge) you can find the actual... More

Spent Easter weekend in Wilkes-Barre and was loking for something to do. Using Trip Advisor we came upon Seven Tubs Natural Area. It is just a short drive from most hotels and very easy to find. Lots of parking was available. It would be nice and helpful if there was some type of trail map posted to help first time... More

This is an outstanding park...although in March there is still some ice on the trails...if you have cleats for your shoes you will be much more comfortable on the trails as they do run near some long drops over the side of the rocks. The tubs themselves are wonderful...with the ice hanging and the water running it is a very... More

My boyfriend and I came to Seven Tubs this past weekend and it is so beautiful! We did not get to see the entire area as there was still a good amount of snow and ice which made it hard to get traction to hike. Bring good hiking shoes!!! We plan to come back in the summer and spend an... More

We geocache and visited Seven Tubs as the result of a geocache located there. It's worth a visit ... we took dozens of pictures as we hiked toward the top.

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...
