Option 1:
From the intersections of E. Spruce Street and PA 66 in Marienville, follow E. Spruce Street (T-327) 5.2 miles to a stop sign at the intersections of T-327, FR 130 and FR 131. Go straight through the stop sign onto FR 130 and follow this 3.3 miles to the parking area just over the one lane bridge. Parking is available on both the left and right sides after the bridge. This road has signs of heavy logging truck usage and there are deep ruts in spots. Low clearance vehicles are not recommended. *Note, E. Spruce Street becomes Lamonaville Road along this route.

Option 2:
From the intersections of E. Spruce Street and PA 66 in Marienville, follow PA 66 North 5.9 miles to a right turn onto Duhrig Road, also T-327. Follow this 7.7 miles to the intersections of T-327, FR 130 and FR 131. Turn left onto FR130 and follow this 3.3 miles to the parking area just over the one lane bridge. *Note: The end of Duhrig Road, T-327 is also FR 131.

From the parking area, walk the trail following Spring Creek upstream. At .03 miles, you'll pass a SGL gate and start walking downhill to cross Hill Run (.05 miles). The total elevation change along the creek is gradual, with most of it coming here at the beginning and near the falls. Just under .10 miles, you'll come to a trail map that shows all of the different trails in this area, both in SGLs and in the Allegheny National Forest. The marker for the ANF boundary is a short walk from the trail map. Continue following the trail, watching for horse patties and areas where the ground doesn't drain well. Around .50 miles, there is a path that cuts off to the left and heads down to Spring Creek. Stay on the upper path. Around .75 miles, Spring Creek heads north and you'll pick up Pigeon Run. At .95 miles, the path drops down to Pigeon Run and the falls are just upstream.
