Shawnee Falls is another of my favorite Ricketts Glen State Park water falls (I have many favorites). This falls offers a variety of compositions. I'm out on a rock ledge for this shot.
Those planning a trip to Ricketts Glen State Park need to be aware that the terrain in the falls area is not like a walk in the park. Though the trails are well maintained, there are many opportunities for fatal falls from slippery rock throughout the rather steep Ganoga Glen and Glen Leigh Trails. If hiking these two trails by the falls (highly recommended) as well as below the Waters Meet area, be prepared for 3-7 miles of hiking with lots of elevation change. A flashlight (and perhaps a spare) are required if coming out after sunset. And the sun sets very quickly in these deep ravines.
