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.

Directions:

  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

Deer Leap Falls, Pennsylvania

Deer Leap Falls in May 2009

Deer Leap Falls is one of many waterfalls on Dingmans Creek in the Delaware Water Gap, and one of three falls (Factory Falls and Fulmer Falls) in Childs Park near Dingman’s Ferry. It is a very pretty waterfall that is very easy to access. The water isn’t deep near the waterfall, and so people were playing around in the water near the falls. Two other waterfalls are found in the same vicinity at Child’s Park.

Directions:

  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. You may pass by Fulmer Falls. Walk down the trail to Deer Leap Falls.
