Visiting Yost Run Falls 12.15.2014

Yost Run Falls, Sproul State Forest, Centre County, PA.

This past Monday I paid a visit to Yost Run Falls on the Centre/Clinton County border, just north of village of Moshannon. With 3-4 inches of slowly melting snow still on the ground, I had a hunch the water flow conditions would be good along Yost Run and its tributaries. My instinct proved to be correct.

I've written extensively before about how to get to Yost Run Falls. If you are unfamiliar with this one you can read my previous post with driving directions, maps, and GPS coordinates HERE.

The hike in to the falls was made easier by the fact that rifle deer season had just ended on the previous Saturday. Truck tracks in the snow along the access road  from the two hunting camp leases along the trail made for a nice footpath. Upon reaching Yost Run, where the access road ends and the Chuck Keiper Trail becomes a narrow footpath, the going was a little trickier but I reached the falls without incident.

I spent about an hour photographing Yost Run Falls, then made my way down stream about 200 yards to where Kyler Fork Falls spill into Yost Run. You can see some nice HD video footage of Kyler Fork Falls in the clip at the end of this post.

As always, a very pleasant visit to one of the more remote parts of Centre County.  Put it on your "to do" list to get there if you never have.
