There are several well-known waterfalls in the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania. One of the more picturesque is Dingman’s Falls in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Because of the floods in 2011, the road to the visitor center is closed. You’ll have to park at a small lot on Johnny Bee Road and hike less than a mile to the visitor center. From there it’s a nice stroll through the woods following a wooden boardwalk past Silverthread Falls to the main falls. With a vertical drop of 130 feet, the water cascading down over the rocks has cut deeply into the stone walls.
You’ll see lots of mountain laurel and trout in the stream. It’s a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.
