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.

now open

the trail is open and the NPS did a great job on it. put in some great bridges. this is an easy hike. i walk with a cane and i still managed to make it(wasn't easy for me) but for a healthy person, it's really easy. the waterfall was barely flowing due to the ongoing drought but its a beautiful area. easy parking right off 209 or drive up the road to the left to a small parking spot. i know there's a lot of history to this area but i don't know what it is.

It was Cool
