The Seven Tubs Natural Area is a great local spot in/right near Wilkes-Barre, PA albeit somewhat limited. There are several hiking trails that start along the tubs and follow the creek through the woods. There are several nice waterfalls creating the tubs. The water is nice and refreshing in the summer. Every visit I have had at the Seven Tubs... More

This beauty is a quick 10-minute drive from Wilkes-Barre on Route 115. And from Route 115, a short drive to the parking areas and a quick walk get you to the water and trails in minutes. The water flowing through the rocks is amazing to see. We visited on July 4 so it was busy with teens and young adults... More

I love to hike and visit beautiful waterfalls. First, there is very little parking. Most of the roadway was blocked. There were no kids or families. It was awesome. For some reason, there were many young men exchanging small paper bags. They must have a "lunch" club. It couldn't have been a very successful drug deal. In addition, there were... More

Excellent place for a cool, shady walk-about ... or a dip in the tubs if you're brave enough. The seven tubs are fed by a stream, connected by short, narrow falls which really can be played as natural water slides / flumes. Views from trails above the tubs are outstanding - well worth the walk. Other trails follow on downstream... More

Kind of hard to find because of the little sign by the highway. Small park with few parking spaces and only a few marked trails. Bring clothes to get wet in, A beautiful place to hike. Young children could probably make it to the first pool with help from a parent. That part is relatively steep.

On a weekend trip with my husband we decided to see this trail and water due to its reviews. It was worth the time. Beautiful waterfall (small) nice views and surroundings.

Went there the first time yesterday and it was absolutely amazing. Me and my family had a blast sliding down the falls and swimming. Such I nice retreat from the normal life. As for everyone posting about trash and bad things happening I feel as if that can happen anywhere so suck it up and just go for the experience!... More

Beautiful local spot for hiking. The trails can be a bit steep in places but not so challenging that casual hikers would have any issues. Currently the state of Pennsylvania (DCNR) is taking control of the place from Luzerne County, they are promising to improve the park over what was being done by the cash strapped county.
