Fulmer Falls, Pennsylvania

Fulmer Falls in May 2009

There are three bigger waterfalls in the Childs Park area of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area: Deer Leap Falls, Factory Falls, and Fulmer Falls. I’ve already talked about the first two, so now I’m going to finish with Fulmer Falls.

I think Fulmer Falls might be the tallest of the three falls, though Factory Falls might also be around the same size. None of them are massive, but they are all pretty and extremely easy to visit. In order to view Fulmer Falls at its best, you do have to leave the wooden boardwalk, though it’s not hard to do. You just have to slip under to get that better view.


  1. Go west on the PA-739 from the intersection of US-209 and PA-739 in Dingman’s Ferry for about 1 mile.
  2. Turn left on Silver Lake Road, and drive 1.5 miles to the Child’s Park parking lot.
  3. From the parking lot, start walking left toward the very clearly marked boardwalk/trail. Fulmer Falls is nearest the parking area.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 38′
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip
