Trip to Allegheny National Forest (Part I)

A trip to Allegheny National Forest was planning from long time within our photographers group. But when it come into reality only 4 us of who can make it happen. One of my photographer friend Kevin was our Guide. He is the real Hero. The day when we were starting our trip we all met at ‘Bob Evans” just off Rt28 exit 11 at Harmer, PA. After a great breakfast we all were set to start our trip. I asked Kevin, can you please give the location address so that I can put it on my GPS. He replied that “Its in my Head”….I asked again and he replied the same. I said never mind I will keep following you wherever you go.

Our Plan was to cover some of the water falls on the way to ANF. So our first destination was Rapp Run Falls in Lower (Clarion, PA). This small series of falls is easy to get to taking 5th Avenue North out of town and branching off on Bigley Road.


After spending 1hr or so we headed next to Logan Falls in Forest County, PA. This place is tough to get to and includes a down hill hike which is relatively easy to get to, but climbing back out is another story.


Our next stop of the day was Pigeon Run Falls, Marienville, PA. I would say this one of the most interesting water falls so far we had covered. Its interesting because we had to walk almost 30 minutes through some narrow trails(scary also) and once we reached there the conditions were perfect. By the time we reached the Pigeon Falls it was almost 5:30 PM and less sun light. That means good for some long exposure.


From Pigeon Run Falls we headed straight to Benezette. On the way to Benezette we got to see some Elk. By the time we reach Benezette it was too late and we call it a day.
