Oxbow Falls at Tioga State Forest near Cedar Run, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back hike that leads to a small, and likely seasonal, waterfall named Oxbow Falls.

Hike Description
This off-trail hike begins at the sharp curve in Leetonia Road near the parking coordinates provided and follows a loosely-defined deer trail that leads up Oxbow Hollow to reach a small rock overhang where the creek cascades down, forming a waterfall during rainy seasons. This creek (Oxbow Run / Oxbow Creek) is not listed on any maps, hence, is likely a seasonal stream, so this waterfall will likely dry up by the time Summer rolls around.

Oxbow Falls - 8-feet tall
At the end of this GPS recording is the ~8-foot tall Oxbow Falls. To reach a decent view of the waterfall, up close, hikers must do some light scrambling to make their way up the hill. Be careful as some of this terrain is a bit steep. Once at the waterfall, hikers can enjoy a nice view of the falls before heading out.

Note that there's a tiny parking turnout by the coordinates provided along the bend in Leetonia Road. There's enough room for 1 or 2 cars maximum; however, your visit will be extremely short since the waterfall is visible from the road as well.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste should be carried out by the hiker.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
