Picture This: A Fall Hike at Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

Vibrant Colors & Rushing Waterfalls Offer Fall Scenery at Its Finest

With over 70,00 acres of forests, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is a prime spot to see the Poconos’ famous fall foliage. We hit the trails on a crisp, sunny day for a little bit of leaf peeping.

We headed to the northern part of the park, just outside of the charming town of Milford. Along the Hornbecks Creek Trail, the trees were blazing with fall colors, from fiery red to bright orange to vivid gold.

The Dingmans Creek Trail is another must-see, no matter what season. This trail is popular because it features two breathtaking waterfalls in one short, 0.4-mile walk. We passed Silverthread Falls, which cascades 80 feet through the forest gorge, and made our way to Dingmans Falls, the second tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania.

We just had to share the gorgeous scenery. Check out our photos from the trip.
