I went here just by accident, passing by on my way to Falling Waters. Turned around and checked it out, truly a hidden jem. Trails are quiet and peaceful, well maintained and posted very well. Great place for a quick hike.

The trails here are beautiful, you can tell the preservation group really does a beautiful job maintaining the trails.. I wish I lived here so I could enjoy these quiet trails more often..

Bear Run has a network of about 21 miles of trails color-coded for difficulty. Each color loop has a suggested completion time (on the trail map). You can mix or match to get a nifty workout. The easier trails are suitable for kids, even toddlers....More

We have been hiking many of the trails in the area since we located here two years ago, and have found this one to be exceptionally beautiful! Trails are well marked and maintained. There was very little foot traffic the day we were there, which...More

This is a really great reserve. The trails are well marked and there are several to choose from of varying lengths. The grounds are obviously well maintained. In over an hour's time, we saw only one other couple.

Beautiful just can't describe the trails. A little drizzle never bothered us and we all enjoyed the day.

If visiting Fallingwater, pick up the Self-Guided Walk brochure for that part of the Bear Run Nature Reserve adjacent to the Frank Lloyd Wright house. The Kaufmann family for whom the house was built, entrusted the house, content and grounds to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy...More

Yes. Dogs are permitted. But just as with any forest they should be on a leash since there are other hikers and there are the typical woods hazards of bears and snakes.

Fallingwater is part of the Bear Run Nature Reserve. Across the highway from the entrance to Fallingwater and about a quarter of a mile North on 381, you'll find the offices of the Bear Run Nature Reserve.
