Paradise Valley, PA
The difficulty in reaching Devil’s Hole Creek Falls in State Game Lands 221, especially in spring and for the last half mile, practically guarantees solitude when you finally get there. Be prepared to wade across the stream, up to 2 feet deep during spring runoff, and to make your way through dense vegetation. From the game-lands parking lot, walk around a metal gate. As you descend to Devil’s Hole Creek, mixed hardwoods give way to thick mountain laurel, which blooms in June. You will cross the creek at least five times on your hike to Devil’s Hole, and how wet you get will depend on recent rainfall. After heavy spring rains, we waded through water that was knee-deep. Later in the summer, you may be able to cross by stepping on rocks and logs without getting your feet wet. Interesting features: Box canyon, Devil’s Hole, carved by a waterfall on Devil’s Hole Creek. Surface: Rocky woods trail (which fades out the after first mile), many stream crossings.
