One Hike, Two Incredible Waterfalls
You can’t see all 67,000 acres of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in one visit, but the Dingmans Falls Visitor Center can help you hit two of the park’s most popular waterfalls, all in one easy hike. The center serves as the trailhead for the Dingmans Creek Trail. On your trek, you’ll marvel at Silverthread Falls, an 80-foot cascade that’s so perfect you’ll swear it’s manmade (it’s all Mother Nature’s handiwork), and Dingmans Falls, the second highest waterfall in Pennsylvania with a height of 130 feet. Visit in July or August when the rhododendron thickets along the trail are in full bloom.
This 0.4-mile trail is made of smooth boardwalk paths. If you feel like squeezing in a workout, climb the steps to the top of Dingmans Falls. The view of the roaring waters is worth breaking a sweat!
The Dingmans Falls Visitor Center also offers educational exhibits and guided waterfall walks in season. The center is open from late May through late October, but the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is open year-round.
