Dingmans Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."

This hike takes you to the falls and then through a hemlock forest alongside a pristine stream to three more waterfalls and the ruins of a once-thriving mill. This hike is located within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, a 70,000-acre watershed 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."

"Enjoy two tall yet completely different cataracts on this jaunt up lower Dingmans Creek at a historic Pocono tourist destination in operation since the 1880s, now managed by the National Park Service as part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Dingmans Falls and its sidekick Silverthread Falls have been drawing visitors to the valley of Dingmans Creek since before the 1880s, when a hotel was erected to cater to waterfall visitors. That same hotel has now been refurbished as the national park visitor center at Dingmans Falls, adding a Victorian flair to the beautiful natural surroundings of this alluring valley." Read more
