Adams Creek Falls

Adams Creek Falls

This was by far one the most difficult waterfalls to get to, but was definitely one of the more fun ones despite the challenge! This hike was a little longer compared to the other waterfalls I saw in the area and was about 2.3 miles out and back. What made it even more difficult was having to trek across the water 6 different times! I was very unprepared for this but my inner monkey just had to go on and I…

Dingmans Falls

The second highest waterfall in the state of Pennsylvania with a vertical drop of 130 feet (39.6 m)! Dingmans Falls is located in the Delaware National Gap Recreation Area. With it being winter time, I was lucky to have this magical frozen waterfall all to myself! It was very cold out that morning. The hike was fairly short and only about 0.65 miles to the waterfall.
