Stone Quarry Run Falls is a picturesque Tioga County waterfall located alongside the Pine Creek Rail Trail near Blackwell.
How to Find Stone Quarry Run Falls
Whether you choose to hike it, bike it, or ski it in the winter, there is a large paved parking area for the Pine Creek Rail Trail right next to Route 414 in Blackwell, complete with restrooms.
From the parking area you’ll want to head north, away from the parking area towards Tiadaghton.
You’ll come to Stone Quarry Run Falls at 1.25 miles into your trip (measured from the parking lot in Blackwell).
If you like to navigate via GPS, use coordinates 41.57247, -77.38291 to find Stone Quarry Run Falls.
In the dead of winter, Stone Quarry Run Falls is home to some excellent ice formations.
I’d feel comfortable saying Stone Quarry Run Falls is 12-15 feet tall, between the two tiers.
Also worth mentioning (and photographing) is the old stone bridge that carries the Pine Creek Rail Trail over Stone Quarry Run.
If you’re already down at stream level, just turn away from the falls towards the rail trail, and you’ll see this “1903” inscription in the bridge.
If you continue north on the Pine Creek Rail Trail for another mile, you’ll encounter Water Tank Hollow Falls, a 20 foot-tall trailside waterfall.
