    Raymondskill Falls is a series of three falls, totaling more than 100 feet, making it the highest waterfall in Pennsylvania. The waterfall is located in the northern part of the Delaware Water Gap cNational Recreation Area near Milford and Access to the falls is pretty easy. From the parking area, follow the trail first to the overlook at the top of the falls. Note that there are two parking areas - one for Raymondskill Creek Trail and one for Hackers Trail. Both provide access to the waterfall and they're only a hundred feet or so apart. The one for Raymondskill Falls has the restrooms at it. There is a small cascade above the main waterfall and you can see the very top, but it's not possible to see the entire thing from here. Continue down the trail to a big wooden overlook at the base of the falls. The view of the falls from here is great and the waterfall is quite spectacular. If you head over to the far end of the viewing platform, you can also see the lower section of the waterfall, though the views aren't as good. When we visited, there was another small waterfall next to the lower falls, though I think this one is only visible after rain.
