Get Lost: Marshalls Falls Park

Marshalls Falls Park
41°03’10.4”N 75°08’42.2”W

The newest park in Smithfield Township is not easy to find. That is because it is not yet officially open as a park. GPS won’t get you there, nor is there a sign at the parking entrance. Go up Marshalls Creek Road from the intersection of Business Route 209 at the Marshalls Creek shopping center. Look for what appears to be a large, abandoned parking lot on the right. If you park and bushwhack inland and up the creek, you will be rewarded with the sight of Marshalls Creek Falls. This hidden gem is one of the highest and most stately cascades in the area. Standing below, it is difficult to imagine you are only ten minutes from the road and close to civilization. Like much of Smithfield Township, the falls is a reminder that we are living in a world parallel to a primeval time that is unchanged by the ages of man.
