This is a beautiful hike in Milford, PA that follows the edge of a cliff, providing spectacular views of the Delaware River winding through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Not to mention, a stellar view of the sunrise if you get there early!

This 6.4 mile out-and-back trail (2.7 miles each way) is an excellent trail for those looking to spend an early morning or afternoon outside without the strenuousness of all-out mountain hiking. Throughout the entire hike, there is only 700 ft. of elevation gain. Don't let this turn you away if you are looking for spectacular views. Cliff Park Trail starts at the top of a ridge several hundred feet in the air. You can clearly see across the Delaware River to the East into New Jersey where you can spot the High Point Monument, and to the South the winding river flows through the valley. For the hike itself, it is relatively flat and straight with a generously wide trail that is clear of brush and debris and is also dog-friendly. This is an excellent hike for any age or skill level. Also, Milford has much to offer, from cozy cafes to grab a cup of coffee to excellent restaurants to visit for lunch.

Views From The Cliff

The view when you get up there is well worth the fact that the hike is an instant uphill. It’s gonna be a bit hard simply for the fact that you aren’t warmed up at all. But when you get to the top you’ll be taken away by the amazing views of all the land and the river. Well worth the climb. Plus, the falls are right next to this hike which makes it a two for one special.

Breathtaking

Simple hike with absolutely stunning views. I hiked this a sunrise and was greeted by some of the most amazing fog I've ever seen. Felt like we transported to the cliffs of Big Sur. Great hike and plus you can tack on a cool down hike to Raymondskill Falls where you can sit and eat your lunch while looking at a gorgeous waterfall.
