Dingmans Falls is the second highest waterfall in the state of Pennsylvania, easily accessible.

How to get there:

A flat boardwalk trail goes through a a hemlock ravine. Almost immediately on the trail you’ll find Silverthread Falls. The boardwalk continues and ends at the base of Dingmans Falls. The final tenth of a mile is a staircase that leads to a birds-eye view from the upper falls.

A note: Dogs and other pets are not permitted at this park; nor is fishing or swimming.

While you’re there:

The Delaware Water Gap is home to a host of beautiful hiking trails. See a full list here.
