NE Pennsylvania Weekend Vacation: Day 2 – Raymondskill Falls
On Saturday, April 20, after a hearty breakfast at Triplets Family Restaurant, we drove north on Route 209 towards Milford, PA. Located 2.5 miles south of Milford is Raymondskill Falls. This was the first of three waterfalls that we saw that day. We also toured a historic mill, visited a state park and ate dinner with friends.
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!
I wouldn’t have known about this waterfall had it not been for Craig, a Facebook friend. When I mentioned to Craig that we planned to visit Bushkill Falls, he suggested that we include both Raymondskill Falls and Dingmans Falls (the subject of my next blog post) in our itinerary. After seeing both of the suggested waterfalls, we opted not to visit Bushkill Falls. Anyway I wasn’t sure how my arthritic knee would react to all the steps at Bushkill Falls. We didn’t feel like paying $12.50 each to visit Bushkill Falls, when it cost us nothing to see Raymondskill Falls and Dingmans Falls. It was relatively easy to pass up Bushkill Falls, as we had visited those falls one time before in June 1998. Thank you very much, Craig, for suggesting that we visit Raymondskill Falls. By the way, Craig is an excellent photographer. You may view his photographs by visiting his Facebook page, Penn’s Woods Photography.
