 No joke, this is a difficult hike but can be completed by small dogs and children with the proper foot wear and precautions.

 We took the longer way to the top of the falls the Red trail but we thought it was a much better way up than the orange.

Time to hike- 2 hours 10 minutes (plenty of photo taking time obviously)

 

Directions- followed the address off of Yelp and used blogs to find closest parking to falls trails

 

Parking- Right above wooden bridge by the D + L Lehigh Valley trail in Jim Thorpe. 

 

Suggested Trail Color to follow- Red, It is a longer hike up to the top of the falls but much less strenuous than the orange trail. We came down the orange which we preferred, couldn't imagine going up some parts with our little Mia! 

 

We hiked Glen Onoko Falls on an overcast day in the beginning of September, which was perfect because it wasn't humid, too hot, or too cold yet. There were a few rain drops on our drive to the falls and as we were leaving but nothing we minded being out in.
