The Glen Onoko Waterfall trail is a great hike - strenuous, maybe even dangerous at times, but with a good payoff. Within a mile-and-a-half of the start, there are several beautiful cascades and a couple large waterfalls. The trail has been a destination for hikers for over 100 years, and has a very interesting history. There's a guide service - the JTX - that takes you up the trail while telling the stories about the area's past, which is pretty amazing. Once at the top of the trail, hikers can either come back down the same way they went up, which can get tough on the knees, or find the loop around the side of the mountain for an easier descent. There is also a farther loop that gives good views, and if you hook into the Broad Mountain Loop, you can make any number of day-long hikes out of it. There are also many more hikes in the Jim Thorpe area - visit often!
Trail length: 4 miles
