We spent the weekend of May 5 through May 8 in the Pocono Mountains. As I have much to share with you, I plan to upload several blog posts about our Pocono Mountains weekend getaway. This is the third blog post about our weekend. You may read the first and second blog posts here and here.
Our next stop, after the Pocono Environmental Education Center, was at Raymondskill Falls, which is located 2.5 miles south of Milford, PA. Raymondskill Falls, at a height of approximately 150 feet, is Pennsylvania’s tallest waterfall. I read that Raymondskill Falls is 4 feet shorter than Niagara Falls. What a beautiful waterfall, and it was relatively easy to get to! From the parking lot, facing the restroom building, we headed right into the forest. It was an easy hike through the forest to the top of the falls. It was somewhat of a rough climb down uneven stone steps to the middle overlook, but the hike was worthwhile.
Here is a direct link in the event you cannot see the embedded video displayed above.
From this middle overlook there is another little waterfall on the left.
We followed a different trail back to our car. There were no steps on this trail, but the trail was steep!
By the way, there is no fee charged to see Raymondskill Falls.
From Raymondskill Falls we began our drive back to Stroudsburg, via Route 209 South. We stopped at Dingmans Falls Visitor Center — the subject of my next blog post.
