This is a fun hike and a great place to be on a hot summer day.Wooden walkways, steps, and a series of wooden footbridges lead through the bottom of a deep hemlock ravine to two dramatic and distinctly different waterfalls, where the mist and the shade from the hemlocks cool the air. Follow a trail that parallels Dingmans Creek to another spot with three more dramatic waterfalls, old factory ruins, and a picnic area. This hike is located within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area— a 67,000-acre watershed atop the Pocono Plateau that stretches for 40 miles on both the Pennsylvania and New Jersey sides of the Delaware River. The trail begins on a wooden walkway that takes you to the foot of Silver Thread Falls, where water from a tributary to Dingmans Creek drops 80 feet through a narrow shale crevasse, cascading over a series of ledges.
