I highly recommend this as a day trip (or an overnight if you're so inclined.) To learn about the area get off I-80 at the LAST exit BEFORE the bridge. Make a left and visit the welcome center, it just reopened today! There was a young girl there and a man as well. They were both very helpful. Make sure you ask them for maps. REVIEW the maps with them and circle the areas you want to visit/make notes, so you remember!
I highly recommend "Dingman's falls" - it's a mostly easy hike w/some steep areas, paved boardwalk type path with railings and two waterfalls (one small.) There are porta-potty type restrooms there but they were actually very clean! There is NO FEE for this attraction.
My favorite area was "George W. Childs Park" (GREAT easy to moderate loop w/a couple of steep climbs as well - has 4 to 5 waterfalls! Bring your water shoes so you can creek walk here, and a picnic lunch - they have the cutest private little picnic sites here! (like mini campsites!) I wrote a review on this park as well. There is no fee for this amazing park, another reason to visit!
Go a bit further into the cute town of Milford. Visit the "Watermill general store" it's HUGE, and the woman and her father who run it are so AWESOME. Have lunch at Patisserie Fauchere cafe/bakery. If it's a nice day you can sit outside on the porch and if not - go inside and find a cozy nook in this great Victorian house. Enjoy, and God bless! :)
