Located 5 miles east of Hillsgrove in Sullivan County, Middle Branch Falls is a 5-10 minute hike from a parking area located at GPS coordinates 41.49313, -76.77249, right next to the bridge along Camels Road over the Middle Branch of Mill Creek.

Upper Middle Branch Falls
Upper Middle Branch Falls is a staircase-like waterfall that spills into a large copper-colored pool below.
The layered rock formations surrounding Upper Middle Branch Falls are equally interesting.
Standing with your back to Upper Middle Branch Falls, you can look out over the rocks forming the top of Lower Middle Branch Falls.
Lower Middle Branch Falls
Lower Middle Branch Falls is almost twice as tall as the upper falls.
As of May 2021, a large tree is laying across the bottom of Lower Middle Branch Falls.
That means if you want to get an unobstructed view, you’ve got to get up close to Lower Middle Branch Falls, somewhere in the streambed and in front of the tree.
The view from up close is fantastic, but use an abundance of caution as the rocks are quite slippery.
Together, the one-two punch of Upper and Lower Middle Branch Falls makes this a rewarding spot to visit while exploring the Loyalsock State Forest.
