We did the 3 mile trail up to the waterfall. It was a nice hike through a few different types of forest cover...some uphill. Once we arrived at the waterfall our Labradoodle was happy to cool off! They are pet friendly.

On the other side of the waterfall hike is a nice lookout point over the delaware valley.

Best hiking trails in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and they have many programs available including guided hikes and the EcoZone discovery area. Great facilities for events as well. Check their website at www.peec.org or Facebook page for schedules and more information.

There are also a lot of trails that you can hike @ the Center. Learn about the area and experience the wildlife.

My boyfriend booked us a two hour waterfall tour through PEEC. It was $14 a person. The guide said we would stop and see if one area was open yet for the season then stop by two other areas.

We went to the first site and it was open. We were a group of approximately 13-14 adults. We ended up spending the whole two hours at the first stop and saw two waterfalls. I thought it was somewhat poorly planned. I felt the guide should have known whether or not the sites were open and then gave us a time limit at each stop. The park we went to was something we could have done on our own for free so I felt $14 pp was a little expensive.

I still had a great time and loved the waterfalls!

If you're in the area stop at PEEC and pick up some maps of the area and do your own waterfall tour.
