Falls are worth the hype

Spent 3 nights at Ricketts Glen with my partner.

We took Falls Trail on a Monday morning around 9:30am and there were a few people on the trail already. By the time we finished the trail around noon, the entire parking lot was full. Definitely recommend an early start!

The beach is a one mile walk from the Big Loop, but very doable in flip flops. Nice and clean with rentals available.

Grandview trail was our last trail of the trip. A quick two miler that’s well marked and a fun quick hike.

Note to any campers: the turf at the campsite is HARD. If you’re trying to put stakes in the ground to secure your tent, you’ll need heavy duty stakes. We bent a few of our metal stakes and had to buy a rubber mallet to get anywhere (and still struggled).

Red Rock Corner Store is at the “base” of the park is a nice go-to for ice, soda, or last minute camp needs.

No cell service for me or my partner at the site (T-Mobile and Verizon), which we loved, but isn’t for everyone.
