Travel Tips for Delaware Water Gap

Raymondskill Falls

by Geoff_Wright

Raymondskill Creek is one of many streams that tumble through steep Pocono ravines to the Delaware River's west shore. As you enter the ravine, you pass under a canopy of easter hemlock trees. These tall evergreens - some of the park's oldest - thrive in the cool moisture of waterfall ravines, and in turn shape the plant community on the forest floor.

Raymondskill Falls, which is about five miles north of Dingmans Falls. is the highest in Pennsylvania, and falls in three beautiful sections. Because it isn't as popular area as the other falls, it is likely to be not as heavily visited as well.

The Falls

by Geoff_Wright

The top section of the falls is handicapped-accessible via a paved trail that leads from the parking area.

The five-foot cascade, shown in this photo, isn't particularly impressive but it is beautiful as it falls into a large pool of dark water. The area is a nice peaceful place to eat lunch or relax and admire the grandeur of the area.

The Falls

Another photo of Raymondskill Falls. A quarter-mile round-trip hike leads through a hemlock ravine to the Upper Falls (a 70 foot climb). The Middle Falls are a half-mile round trip, using steep and uneven steps (150 foot climb).

Raymondskill Creek lies at the bottom of the ravine and is a 1 mile round-trip, with a steep ascent of 200 feet on your return. We never had time to visit this part of the Falls.

The Delaware River

by Geoff_Wright

Only a day or so before this picture was taken, we had crossed the Delaware River from Lewes, Delaware, to Cape May, in New Jersey. The difference there was that the river was 17 miles wide at that point!

The river here looks inviting, but it is deceiving. The recent heavy rains have swollen the river, and consequently it was flowing more swiftly than usual. However, the Delaware River is one of the cleanest and most scenic rivers in the East, and there are designated safe bathing beaches at Milford and Smithfield Beach.

A final View

by Geoff_Wright

A final reminder. Just take a look at the path here, where Mary is standing. It's not suited to elderly or infirm walkers. There are many exposed roots of the Hemlock trees. I had to hold mary's hand for much of the trail. Aaah, Bless! LOL.
