HIKES AND WATERFALLS

In 1872, Philadelphia’s Daily Evening Telegraph described our region’s fluviarchy — a network of waterfalls flowing into the Delaware River — as “precipitating themselves over cataracts of great heights, plunging into miniature lakelets, and noisily bubbling through miniature gorges or moss-hung glens.” Several of these “noisy bubblers” are located within the Delaware Watergap National Park (DWNRA).

RAYMONDSKILL FALLS

Located in the DWNRA, less than four miles from the hotel, is this breathtaking, year-round sight. The roaring, 105-foot Raymondskill Falls includes three tiers of cascades; visitors may view each unique water feature from a different section of the hiking trail. The total roundtrip hike to all three falls is less than one mile. From the Hotel, follow Route 209 south into the DWNRA about three miles and make a right at the sign for Raymondskill Falls.

DINGMANS FALLS

The 75-foot Dingmans Falls is the DWNRA’s most popular waterfall. Novice hikers will enjoy the short trek, which wends by Silver Thread Falls. A flat boardwalk trail, accessible to wheelchair-users, passes through a hemlock ravine and delivers hikers to the base of Dingmans Falls, where a steep climb of 240 steps will take you to the top. From the Hotel, follow Route 209 south into the DWNRA for about 10 miles and turn right at the stoplight at Route 739.

BIKING

Bicycle PA Route L follows a north-south route through the mountains, with segments on the D&H and Lehigh Gorge trails. Bicycle PA Route Y generally follows PA Route 6, but it also includes some lightly traveled country roads in this region. Delaware State Forest Thirty-one miles of designated mountain bike trails and gravel roads.

FISHING

The Delaware River Highlands area offers hundreds of places to fish for a variety of species, including trout, bass, walleye and American shad. Fishing licenses, available at most sporting goods stores and some town halls, are required for anglers 16 and older. An additional permit is required for trout. Boat accesses are plentiful and most are free. Please note that not every ramp is suitable for every craft, as not every body of water is suitable for every craft. Pay special attention to signage. The Delaware State Forest has 11 lakes and ponds. Peck’s Pond has two launch sites. Large power boating is available on Lake Wallenpaupack. Smaller powerboats and watercraft, like canoes and kayaks, are ideal for most other waters. Milford Beach, about a mile from the hotel, offers a launch for canoes, kayaks and small watercraft.
