Tobyhanna Falls is certainly not one of the tallest waterfalls you’ll see in the Poconos!

But it makes for a quick, relaxing hike along a fairly level trail.

Its close proximity to Route 80 also makes it a great pitstop on your way to and from some of the other waterfalls in the region, such as Nay Aug Falls in Scranton.
