Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Waterfall Hike
Three out and back hikes to see 8 very scenic waterfalls in the DWGNRA. NOTE: Those with vertigo or acrophobia should avoid this hike.
The first hike, while short, has 2 steep ascents where you will be grabbing roots and rocks for assistance. Your reward? 3 very nice waterfalls, 2 with swimmable pools, so wear a bathing suit if you're so inclined. The second hike also features 3 nice falls, one with a pool. This hike follows Hornsbeck Creek and features 2 scenic gorges also. The third hike will take us back to Silverthread Falls and Dingman's Falls. Bring water and lunch. Hiking boots are highly recommended. Heavy rain cancels. This is an all day hike, so please don't make plans for the early evening.
Hike / bike / on-water distance: 8 miles
Hike rating: C
Meeting place: Meet at the Park & Ride lot at the intersection of PA 33 and William Penn Highway. We will carpool to the hikes.
