Raymondskill Falls


is the tallest waterfall in the state, and only 4 feet shorter than Niagara, Raymondskill Falls has always been a tourist attraction. The 100-footlong rectangular mound surrounded with weeds near the turn off from US 209 is all that remains of the former Hotel Schanno. To get to the falls, exit the parking area to the right of the restrooms, and walk down the gravel path and stairs about 400 feet.


There are two viewing platforms: one near the head of the falls, and one at a large step that divides the upper two drops from the lower. Each divide in the falls indicates a harder sandstone layer that separates softer layers below. Adjacent to the lower drop is a thin horsetail cascade exiting from a ledge surrounded by rhododendron. This cascade flows only during and after a good rain.

Factory Falls


The Factory Falls is a waterfall located in the George W. Childs Recreation Site in Dingmans 
It is the first of three falls within a few hundred yards; Factory, Fulmer and Deer Leap Falls.

 

Silverthread Falls.


Whereas Dingmans Falls slides down a sandstone face, Silverthread has sawed its way through a narrow fis- sure of the same formation to reveal a cross section of the lower Pocono Plateau, with its many twisted and folded rock layers.


Carrying much less water than Dingmans, Silverthread can be a trickle most of the year.

 

Fulmer Falls


The Fulmer Falls is the second waterfall located in the George W. Childs Recreation Site in Dingmans Ferry, Pike County, Pennsylvania. The falls are downstream from Factory Falls and upstream from Deer Leap Falls on the Dingmans Creek. At 17 meters (55 ft), it is the largest of the three falls.

The falls can be reached at [show location on an interactive map] 41°14′12.36″N, 74°54′55.62″W from Childs Park Road, west of Lake Road (State Route 2004), 2.6 kilometers (1.6 mi) north of Pennsylvania Route 739.
