Logan Falls is tucked away in the heart of the Allegheny National Forest in northwestern Pennsylvania.
Approximately 9 miles from the town of Marienville in Forest County, to be specific.
How to Find Logan Falls in the Allegheny National Forest
The parking area for Logan Falls is located along Coal Bed Run Road, 9 miles north of Marienville.
Navigate to 41.58462, -79.15959 on your GPS and follow Coal Bed Run Road (dirt forest road) to a pull-off at those coordinates.
An obvious trail leads downhill, away from the road and towards Logan Run and Logan Falls.
Photographing Logan Falls
Logan Falls is an easy waterfall to maneuver around, so really you can shoot it from just about any angle you can dream up.
Logan Falls is in the 10-12 foot tall range.
There are numerous small cascades and tree roots just below it that you can incorporate into your photos as well.
From Logan Falls, the waters on Logan Run make their way another mile downstream to Tionesta Creek.
The return hike may feel a little longer than the 500 yards it really is, owing to the approximately 200 feet of elevation gain on your way back uphill to your vehicle.
Overall, this is an simple hike to a picturesque little waterfall, one that just about anyone with entry-level hiking experience could handle with ease.
