This hike has everything. You start with a gentle stroll through a hardwood forest and pass through a pine plantation as the trail leads you to a picturesque lake. You then descend into a deep hemlock gorge to visit two torrential waterfalls. After the falls you visit the ruins of an old homestead and take in a panoramic view of the Delaware River Valley. What is it about waterfalls that fascinates us? Is it the sheer power of the water cutting its way through solid rock only to tumble willy-nilly from one ledge to the next? Is it the roar of the water that stops us in our tracks and turns a quiet forest into a place where you have to yell to be heard? Or do we identify with the water’s unmatched tenacity as it continues its endless journey—day after day after day—as it has for thousands of years? Whatever it is, if you like to get up close and personal to major waterfalls that get your heart racing.
