About Ricketts Glen State Park

It’s about a 90-minute drive from the Lehigh Valley and well worth the trip. If you are a nature lover, then this location is definitely for you. There are 22 waterfalls at Ricketts Glen State Park. You heard that right, TWENTY-TWO! When you are hiking through the trails it feels like you are in some other world from Lord of the Rings. I highly recommend this location if you are outdoorsy, love hiking, and are looking for something a little different for your engagement pictures. There just is not a location like this in the Lehigh Valley and your pictures will stand out for sure!
