Philadelphia, PA - If you enjoy waterfalls and natural settings, you should check out the beautiful Buttermilk Falls in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. This waterfall is 45 feet tall and is surrounded by scenic woodland. It used to be a family farm owned by Fred McFeely, the maternal grandfather of the popular children's television show "Mr. Rogers" and a frequent visitor of the area. There is a one-mile loop trail and a small picnic shelter. In 1995, the estate was donated to the county and set aside for its unique natural plant and animal communities.
Exploring Buttermilk Falls
While visiting Buttermilk Falls, you should know that the waterfall's natural beauty is not what it once was. The waterfall is now accessible to visitors and has been undergoing restoration. It used to be more natural, but it was made more accessible for the public and liability reasons. During the time when the waterfall was being renovated, it was surrounded by chain link fences. This means that you can't view the waterfall from the bottom and must climb the stairs to get there.
