Sunday afternoon, on the first day of November, I decided to try find a hidden waterfall that I had been hearing about. I had very few problems finding the trail, about two miles into the woods. However, it was already after four o’clock and I knew it would be dark by six, so I walked quickly. I could hear that incredible roar of a waterfall in the distance. A couple hundred yards into the hidden glen, I caught my first sight of the Jacoby Run Waterfall. It was an exhilarating vision!
By this time, the sun was setting fast, so I quickly setup my tripod and started shooting right away. Hopefully, my photo will give you some sense of the awesome power and beauty of this amazing place.
This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D body fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens, at the 17mm focal length. The exposure was a full 2 second at f/13, ISO 100, in RAW format. A Manfrotto, tripod was used with a remote shutter release cable.
The trail begins north of Loyasockville, Pennsylvania, along Wallis Run Road (State Route 1006). The waterfall is in PA State Game Lands in the Tiadaton State Forest. Watch for a clearing on the right side of the road, where parking is permitted. The trail is just a few miles north of Butternut Grove Road. You will know you’ve found the right place when you see the wooden plank walkway leading across a swamp into the forest.
