Driving Directions: From 209, enter into the Delaware Water Gap and in between the 10 and 11 mile markers you will see a sign for Hornbecks Creek with a gravel road adjacent to it. Follow the road back until you reach the parking lot and the trail will be to the left of the lot, well marked. 

Follow the trail back for 1.2 miles, until the trail comes to an end and opens up into the waterfall and large pool beneath it. There is a rope swing to the left of the falls for swimming.
