The tallest waterfall in the state of New Jersey. Buttermilk Falls is located on the New Jersey side of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. This waterfall cascades 90 feet down the Kittatinny Ridge. I almost missed out on seeing this waterfall. With it being winter time, some of the roads were closed. I originally tried driving in from the north, but the dirt road was closed so I attempted to drive in through the south. The road was still blocked off, but I decided to park outside the gate and run up to the waterfall. It was about a mile up from where I parked. It was a flat gravel road which wasn’t too difficult at all and pretty straight forward. There were a few abandon houses on the way which were pretty cool to check out. I did not dare risk to step in them.
Normally you can just drive right up to these falls because there was public parking just out front so I assumed the road was just closed due to it being winter time. There is a wooden staircase built right next to the waterfall that allows you to view it from the top.
Buttermilk Falls is 25 miles away from Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania which is about a 47 minute drive. Depending on where you are coming from this waterfall can be entered on Mountain Road coming from the north or south entrance.
