Hike and Visit Adam's Creek

Milford, PA - Search Nearby - Added by Pawel Bednarski

Probably, in my opinion, the nicest and biggest waterfall along the Delaware Water Gap. The hike is rewarding with many stunning views, and the waterfall is amazing. Excellent for cliff jumping although it is considered illegal. However, with or without the attraction of cliff jumping, the hiking to the waterfall and the swimming is still an amazing adventure

This is my favorite summer spot to visit during the summer, as the hike is very scenic and simple. There's many great people that you will get to meet along the way, adding to the experience. There are some swim spots during the hike which might not be as crowded as the main waterfall. 

There's also more beautiful waterfalls apart the main fall, but I just never had the luck to find them. If you look up videos on youtube you'll see what I'm talking about.

Unfortunately, state law prohibits cliff jumping and swimming is frowned upon and people have gotten hurt, and fined. So if you do want to go to this place mainly for the thrill of cliff jumping, it is at your own risk. 

Essentially, the main reason I went to this place was to go cliff jumping. There are 3 spots where you can dive in from ranging from 60 feet up to 80 feet. It's a pretty tall waterfall. However, the hole is deep enough for jumping in. It was quite a crazy experience but do it at your own risk, you can get hurt/fined.

The place will mostly be packed with people, but I've had nothing but good experiences with them. Even though the park rangers don't want you swimming, it is still a cool experience. Without a doubt, this place is beautiful and refreshing.
